ford 4x4

Well guys I am getting a 77 ford 4x4 or a year like that with a 351 modified in it I cant wait. My father in law is giving it to me and I hope to get some pics online tonight. Any way it has some custom body lift that gives it alot of body flex and the tires just got slashed any way, if you guys have any ideas or websites I can go to, for info on
4x4s it would be great.

Got the only bird with Lambo Doors in Texas!
Thanks Luke!

If it's an F150 with a 4spd manual trans, I got a great idea.. give it to me


No? Not so much? Dang, can't blame a guy for trying ;D I had a '78 Bronco with a 351M I believe in it that was a 4spd and I'd love to get another one sometime. I don't know of any older F150 sites off hand, but www.projectbronco.com is for 78/79 Bronco's that may help. I know some guys on there have F150's as well.

lol, I am moving out the sc's now so I can get the truck here asap. I think its an auto but I didnt pay attention to that I was so pumped to get a truck #1 and when I saw the motor #2 and then looked at the shape of the body #3 I was overwhelmed and didnt give a crap about the transmission. Its a step side too and has very little surface rust. I so thrilled to be getting a cool truck finally.

Yeah, that grill is earlier. Like a 74 or something.

Cool truck though. My buddy gave me a 78 F-250 4x4 with the 300 L6 before he left for basic training. All I had to do was put another motor in it, which he had also given me. The drivetrain is pretty solid, but the body and interior is rough. It'll probably be my winter beater this year, I don't care what the neighbors have to say!
