1987 Ford F-350 Review
a project worth the time and effort. The reason I would not recommend it to a friend is it is entirely too much truck for most people.
Downside is the size of this beast.
A Beast Of A Project. — crew cab dually. Mind you this truck is VERY modified. This is a project truck that has been years in the running. I put a cummins turbo diesel in this truck. The ford C6 automatic transmission was removed and a gutrag 5 speed was installed. The ford 4:10 gears are low with this motor and trans so they will soon be switched to a 3:73 or 3:55 boosting my fuel economy and and allowing for a little less power and torque to the wheels, making the truck also a little faster with better acceleration. Pictures will be posted as soon as my camera will cooperate.
Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)
