The 63 sounds like a fun project. Any pics of that one would be awesome to see.

My adapter plate is showing up today so hopefully this will be able to move under its own power by next weekend. I have a daddy daughter I have to take my little girl to this weekend

Last night I got the original spring hangers stripped off the frame to get it ready for the new hangers and the new 2016 f350 leafs that I’m putting in. I will also be moving the rear axle back to center it with the bed.

Finally pulled this thing out of the barn sitting at final ride height 2016 superduty leafs out back coil overs up front 2010 super duty axles. I took it over to my fathers shop so we can swap the zf5 in it. Hopefully it will be moving under its own power in a couple weeks. Plan to have the new trans in this weekend then it will be figuring out drive shafts trans crossmember removing the divorced np205 and figuring out the clutch assembly.

Last night I worked on mounting the back bumper. I narrowed it to be the same width as the bed. I also reused the original tail lights for the truck. I will be adding led bulbs to it as well.

Last week I pulled the trans out and found out it didn’t have a torque converter in it which explains the leak and trans not working. But I’m still going with the 5 speed started sides on the box as well. Cutting up a old utility bed to finish it I will add a tool box or 2 to it. It has just enough stick out on the side to throw mud down the whole side of the truck. Lol. Ordered all new ss brake lines that should be here in a few days hopefully have the new trans in this weekend, I have been waiting on the new fly wheel bolts. I still need to get the divorced np205 pulled out and build a trans cross member and Reinforce the front crossmember so I can remove the one behind it for drive shaft clearance
