My truck project just leaped ahead!

I was planning on building an 81 4x4 frame I had with my 460 from my F-350 and the 89 body I had at my shop. WEll after a very good trip to the auto auction, I picked up a Totaled 94 F-150 4x4. Poor truck was broadsided by someone doing at least 80.
Well now Im still gonna use the 81 frame, and the 89 cab and bed. But I'll be using all of the 94 interior (has A/C, p/w, p/l, and all sorts of other nice pieces), drivetrain (which is a roller 5.8, with an OD tranny and 2 speed T-case), and the front clip. So aside from still needing to buy a fender and a rear driveshaft, Im gonna basically have a 94 F-250 4x4 for $500 bucks!!!

Interesting development. Original owner just showed up here at my shop! he lives right around the corner. Worked out pretty good, HE got all of his personal belongings that were left in the truck. Nice guy, offered to give me what I paid for it, bbut had to turn him down, need the drivetrain for my project

Those that say it cant be done should say so quietly, so as not to disturb those who are doing it.
