Default 1-Ton of fun

So I have decided the full size body life just isn't for me. just to wide and to easy to damage the body in the tight trails I wheel on. Heres what I had...



Heres the 03 Ext Cab I purchased yesterday that will be replacing my F250 cab.




Basic run down on the truck....

1996 2wd F250 frame with the 5.8L from the 96, a C6, a 205.
1995 Dana 60 Front with 5.38s and a lock rite, rear 14 bolt shaved and 5.38s welded orb of traction.
Custom radius arms and 5.5"EB coils, rear 63" Chevy springs.


Stock was 133"
Pushing front axle 11" and moving rear axle forward 33"
Sitting at about 118" total wheelbase

I can't find my happy place lol.

I will be at the badlands in attica April 9-11. Haven't decided if I am gonna attempt the cab swap before and get it done or wheel the f250 cab and put the nail in the coffin on the body down there.
