The Good: Clean and very little rust, a lot of hours poured into getting this truck back on the road with many new parts. Tires are brand new and the suspension is completely gone through or replaced. The axles have been refreshed with new gears and seals. Truck looks great with an amazing patina and freshly bed lined floor. 

 

The Bad: The straight 6 is tired. We've spent time attempting to get more power out of it but it's just worn out. The truck does run and drive just fine, it just needs more power. The rear main leaks oil along with the power steering pump that should be replaced or upgraded. The truck has a few electrical gremlins that need fixing. We've fixed a lot of them but a new harness for the truck would fix everything. 

 

Our Recommendation: Swapping in a nice small block would make this truck 10 times better. Changing out the power steering pump for a new upgraded replacement would fix the leak and a new steering box would tighten up the response of the steering. We also have a newer F350 with a 460 big block and ZF 5 speed that we contemplated swapping in. The wiring works as is but will act up on occasion. Putting a new harness in the truck would be well worth it. We would love to make this truck great again but we just have too many project vehicles that need our attention.
