Just fitted the lift kit after it arrived today. Thanks Hobbymaster, great bit of gear! Put the body back on to get an idea of how it was coming together. Looking good, I thought. Next to come is some oil dampers and the radius rods. Then the Novak speedy, 2.2 beadlocks and high turn motor (not sure which way to go yet, any ideas?) When funds permit, that is!!! ;) Comments welcome!

Hi Drjack, Nice to see the lift kit fitted, I had ww2 wheels on mine for a bit. Now I have 2.2 beads fitted! I would use a motor in the 17 to 19 turn range as they will give good run time and still give you more speed!
nice truck, cheers

Thanks for all the great comments guys. Hobbymaster, this truck was supposed to be the tow vehicle for my Clod crawler but it got a little out of hand! This will be a crawler now too, so for a motor I was thinking more along the lines of 50t-85t. But I do like a fast truck so another F350 is on the shopping list to run that 19t!!! Rollinjo, I just softened up the springs (two leaves) and left the tabs on the spring seats so they can 'roll' inside them. Waterboy, the white rims are from a Stadium Blitzer 'cause I only had one set of WW2 rears. Beadlocks are on their way!!! craigj2118, the photos don't do the colour justice. It's actually pearl clear sprayed over the black. Looks great in the sunlight. Thanks again.
