Have to wait a little while before I can put the camper on the 700. Figure ill stick my Super Duty in here because it might as well be my wheeler at this point in time.

2000 7.3psd 6 speed ATS ported housing, tuned, intake, 4inch downpipe
1979 Kingpin dana 60/4.10 gears/NWFab cross over steering/KYB Nitro shocks/trussed
1992 Dually 10.25/4.10 gears/5100 Bilsteins/trussed

Add a leaf in the front, no lift blocks in the rear 11 leaf pack. Was going to be my main trailer hauling truck before I got the 700. Reason for the rear spring beef. Now I think that I will just put a shackle flip in the rear, soften the springs and lift it an inch or two. Then an exocage and 37s.

Not the prettiest truck but I can drive it like it owes me money and face it, everyone loves a single cab 6spd diesel that you can beat on.






Anyone have an idea of a good vehicle for a motor swap? Preferably Ford and has to fit a 7.3 and E4OD.

Make it back from the UP, 19 days. Time to make it a toter home and go to the Dakotas.

While I was in the Upper Peninsula I was stopped by a Michigan State DOT officer and checked out. She wanted so so bad to give me whatever ticket for anything. But she couldnt...painted over DOT stickers on the door and air brakes. Log/Farm plates are the shit.

I saw you stopped at the rest stop yesterday right before Gaylord on 75, I was heading north. Your rig is hard to miss with the bumper and the horse trailer! Looks good.

Thanks, need to get some paint on it soon. It will also be getting a large muffler so the drone isnt bad down the freeway. Maxed it out at 69mph wide open down I-75, defiantly some more gearing needed. Not sure if I want more power before more gear. Probably more power first, but not much. More RPMs, more torque and no smoke. Thinking 425hp with a small puff of smoke from the start will be easily obtainable.

Lets get shit back on track here.

F700 Toter Home.









Will have the steel on the truck painted black by tonight. Cut the legs off for now. Going to rebuild them stronger and larger so it doesnt take 2 forklifts to get the camper off. Have a slew of other things to get done.

I think he was going to make it a dually and he was in the process of putting dually fenders on her.

Ever see the Ultimate Adventure Super Duty? I liked that truck long before I could drive.



But at the same time I prefer this style.


^ Government Mule

And to fix the rust that covered the bed, it will eventually be a tag along rig with my F700/ Dedicated Wheeler.



Almost ready to hit the road.

Made an 1100 mile trip to South Dakota without a hitch. Got way better fuel mileage than the F450, about 2-3 gallons less per fill up. Loaded down pretty good, no room for anything else on the rig. Pulled every hill great, cruised around 55-60mph the whole way. Great power with this truck, overall very happy with everything. No muffler was ridiculously loud in the cab, all conversations were yelling unless we were coasting a hill. The brakes on this rig are awesome too, never dropped under 90psi the whole trip. Got the trailer brakes smoking a little bit coming down 12 into Minnesota from Wisconsin.

Had 3 horses, 325 gallons of water, 26 bags of dog food, 14 bags of horse food, 30 or so bales of hay, a quad, and a bunch of tools in the trailer. The camper is loaded to the gills.

Looks good shiny.
