This is mine... 85 F250 HD, 460, 4 speed, 4x4. Kind of a rusty old junker with a lot of weird issues but it always gets the job done. I have a set of EFI heads and all the fuel injection stuff from a newer truck so I will be installing that someday. I got a class V receiver hitch for it and the heaviest load I have pulled so far was about 1000lbs of firewood in the truck and a 20' car trailer with a Lincoln Mark VII junker that weighted 2900lbs. The truck did NOT like pulling all that at all.
