Default The 4x4 that isn't a 4wd

My truck isn't a 4x4, yet, but it's a dually with posi, so it does have 4wd.

It's a 1993 F350 CC dually with a 7.3L IDI. It's got 305k miles and runs great. It's got more rust than I care for, but fortunately it's mostly on the bed, which is slated to have a custom one in its place soon. It's a daily driver work truck, so all these grand plans will have to happen on 3 day weekends. There are lots of plans for it, and a lot for me to learn.

I'm pretty new to the 4x4 community and offroading in general, so forgive my n00b questions. I'll try to use the search function and not ask too many redundant questions, but I ain't making any promises.

Thanks
Keith HP

Yeah, it will get a flat deck, sorta. The D60 is a definite, but I'm not a big fan of lifted trucks of this length, but that's a discussion for its own thread.

Make the front level and put it on 33's or 35's then!

Damn, dual injection pump talk and a D60 swap. Sounds like this could be an awesome truck. I am an OB member as well.

Oh yeah, Welcome!

I'm converting my 1994 F350 to 4x4 because I'm getting tired of getting stuck on wet grass.

Thanks Red. Yeah, this forum seems a better platform to flesh out my ideas about the drivetrain of this rig. :thumbup:
