    Here are the current pics of my cab change. I just need to intermesh the electronics. The fuel system and tail lights as well as some ignition things need to be buttoned up but it coming out pretty good. A new bump and paint job are on order. Thanks for looking..









    Consider it pure joy my brothers when you face trials of many kinds.

    The cabs on the old F-Superduty trucks do take a beating with the twisting etc.

    They are good old trucks.

    Have to made sure the diesel radiator will fit the F-150 rad support ?

    Haha, yeah my 89 F Super Duty has f250 fenders on it, it does cause some confusion. Looks good. How bad was the old cab? I always thougth about doing that to mine and slappin a turbo on the old IDI, but just seemed like an awful lot of work, especially on my rust free cab.

    It was a fun project. The top was literally separated from the botom. The cabs face a lot of forces. This had to happen though. As fars as the badges go, I planned on slapping the old F-Superduty ones on after the paint job. I'm about two weeks away off and on. See, the F-150 was an automatic gasser and my superis a manual diesel so we are still getting some wire connections together PITA!!!!!! I have all interior and lighting but no diesel ignition yet.

    Lots of work.:) I like that body style, it's getting to be a 'classic' now.
