1990 Ford f350. Pics tell the rest

Overview

My brother in law had owned this for the last ten years. His cousin owns a performance diesel shop in northern Utah and built it in the mid 90s when it had about 40,000 on the original na 7.3l. He suddenly bought a newer dodge so I asked him what he was gonna do with it. I wasn't looking to buy another truck at the moment but the price was too good to pass up especially for this truck. ($7k). It has had a ton of maintenance done to it by my brother in law over the last few yrs. He is a pretty good diesel/auto mechanic. See specs page for more details. I'm sure I'm forgetting alot.

I'll just leave these here for now til I get back from camping next week.
Here she is, my "new to me" tow rig/current DD. It's a 2003 Chevrolet 2500HD. It has the LB7 Duramax and ZF-6 6 speed MANUAL trans. It's an LS with cloth seats, rubber floor mat, no cruise control, and manual shift tcase. The only thing I didn't get on my wish list was a long bed but I figured the 6 speed was worth it. It has bald 265/70r17 tires. A PO swapped in a leather back seat. Oh and only 175,000 miles. This will be a slow build. Mainly just posting to document as I do stuff to it...

I've been meaning to start a build thread for a while and now I'm finally going to do it. Here's some backstory. I bought my 1983 Diesel K5 in 2007. It belonged to a kid who got it from his grandpa and didn't care for the diesel engine. I scored it for $500. It was 100% rust free and looks like it got a single stage repaint at some point. Odometer read roughly 60,000 so I'm guessing its got 160,000. It was all stock with bald 235s and an old school warn winch bumper and 6,000 lb winch with...
