Last one of old pictures. Had cut the cab down from a parts truck to fit over the frame for the gooseneck. When I get to that point.

Mid-way through the summer had picked up this camper for a great price. Had a buddy tow it home but after new tires and a gooseneck kingpin box I was able to take it out labor day weekend. Towed a lot better then I was expecting. Still have to work on getting the trailer level while towing. Going to drill more holes to allow the new kingpin box to sit higher. (Drop the front an inch or so) and might have to look into getting the suspention lifted.

Figured I would show what it looks like with f-150 leaf springs in it. The lift I used is a 4" lift in front with 3" blocks in the rear to level it out. When I swapped the springs I also removed the 2" stock blocks which gave me an extra inch of lift so now it's 4" front and 4" rear lift.

Even though the frame on my truck is decent I still got this frame for $100 which is a steal. Figure I can sandblast it, paint it, and fit a V8 to it without laying up my truck till I'm ready to move the rest over. Going to be a brand new truck by the time I'm done with it.

So the build has been put on hold for a little while due to work and school. Also I ended up picking up this little ranger to make into a daily driver.

----------


Don't plan on doing much to the truck as of right now. So far have done a tune up, oil change, timing belt, water pump, and planning on using these satin black bullitt wheels. Still trying to figure out if I should do a 3/4" spacer or 1" spacer to get them to fit and keep the center cap on.

If you can fit it with the 3/4 I'd do that, would look kinda goofy with a 1"

A lot have said they have gone with 1 1/2" and didn't look to bad. I just worry about how far the studs will stick out past the spacer. Rather not have to cut the studs down every time I have to change a rotor.

All nice and clean. Interior is mostly done from grey to tan and have swapped out the grill and mirrors. Cap is temporary to store parts but would like to get a nice tonneau cover to replace it.
