If You Want One, Let Me Know Ill Build It To Your Liking. — This truck started as a 3/4 ton long box 4x4 that had been slid into a power pole. i paid $200 for the thing. then i tore it down and put the cab and axles on an '82 Bronco frame and with my dads help built a flatbed for it. if you cant tell there is only about 11 inches of clearace between the rear tires and the back of the cab. this thing is super short. Recently i have upgraded the rear springs which added about 4 inches of lift on the rear end. this truck is still classified as an F-250. It only weighs about 2 1/2 ton with the sides and tailgate on the bed. Altogether i've only invested about $900 in it which includes the Bronco that i baught for the frame. my future plans are to level up the front clip and add some larger tires. and if i go crazy i'll through in a 5.9l cummins with an allison trany behind it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: To show off the customization.

Cons: It rides rough as hell.
