Truckasaurus. The rebirth and resurrection of a fallen legend

Overview

Figure I should start a build over here as it is now 6.0L time. I picked up this 87 in 1994 the year I graduated high school. It was my pride and joy for years. Almost sold it a couple of times but could never bring myself to do it

Anyway fast forward through three kids, small business, wife and life and the truck started to look a little sorry. Wife said fix it or get rid of it.

I chose to fix it.

I decided long ago that this truck was something I wanted my kids to remember and with them being young still (3,6,9) it was time. I had a game plan and didn't want to really cut any corners so.....

Dana 60 front and 14bff out of cucv
Disc conv on rear
Inboard shocks in rear, ford towers up front
PSC hydro assist, pump, box, resi, ram
New interior (M3 front seats, escalade bench)
Autometer for everything
38 km2's
Abomb
Shackle flip
Much much $ to kurt over at DIY4X
Gauntlet rear bumper
Warn power plant winch
High steer and crossover
Softopper
Full cage (diy4x)

HAD driveshafts and TC brake
Dual AGM batteries with Hellroaring isolator / combiner

That pretty much brings us to where I am now. I wanted to do this in two stages. Stage one would be axles, steering, interior, brakes, suspension and body protection

Stage two will be drivetrain, paint, electrical and dash.
