And by lull, I mean there’s just less items. Still a handful of cool things coming through soon. There’s a ‘72 F-350 utility body going through an auction mid December, hoping to snag it just because. 390 with a 4-speed.

I’d love to do something like that. Sounds expensive tho lol.
Oh man that'd be sick.
Wouldn't be too expensive if you can find a rotted 4wd truck to pull all of the shit off of and bolt onto that one.

On the open market even a rotted early 70’s 4x4 Ford truck is too rich for my blood lmao. I wonder if a ZF5 bolts up to the 390 bellhousing. That would be one way to go about it and make it a bit more bearable to drive. ZF5, later transfer case and some sort of axle under it.

@Yaj Yak and anyone else that frequents marketplace and forums, keep an eye out for these OEM 17” alloy wheels for me. They’re the 2011+ 8x180 bolt pattern. I want to get away from the rusting steel wheels but also want to transfer over my brand new tires.

Kthanx

Going to be busy with this truck over thanksgiving weekend. Intake gaskets, o2’s, plugs/wires, oil change...

I was crawling under the truck yesterday and found paint pen markings for trans service, diffs and T-case every 50-60k or so, last being about 20,000 miles ago. Fuck, that’s awesome. I have never found a fleet so taken care of as these trucks. Probably why they’re mid 200 to mid 300k miles and run/drive better than 80k ones.

Picked up the Duramax today...

Flame suit on. I’m not a fan. It feels slow compared to my stock 6.7 PSD. Trans feels like a confused CVT until the converter locks.

IDK, I’m going to put like 1,000 miles on it before final judgment but as of now I’m just going to keep my gasser lol

I got two buddies that have LMLs (a 2015 LTZ Z71 and a 2011 LTZ) and I mention the trans thing to them all the time when I drive 'em, they think I'm nuts. Glad it's not just me.
