Maintenance for the beast = picture time.

I've had the beast take apart in my garage for quite some time while I replaced the rod and main bearings and oil pump. What a PITA job that was, I'm freaking glad its over with lol. Anyway, I've been dying to drive the truck so I figured it was picture time...

Looks good....I like the 235's. 460 or 351? I can't remember.

I went back to them on my 350 after seeing how much 285's were. Maybe some 255/85's if I feel like blowing some cash.

I've actually grown to like the size thats on it. I think it gives it a nice military look.

Its a 351 with ZF5, and I agree about tires. Its hard to justify spending that kind of cash on new tires when I hardly paid that for the whole truck haha!

Good looking truck. Doesn't look like it has been abused. I think you need more trucks.

Thanks, its actually an old Halliburton truck. All the original registration info and manuals were in the glovebox when I bought it. It was purchased new by Welex which was later bought out by Halliburton (My dad used to work for them). So the condition of the truck is actually pretty amazing considering what it was probably put through.

And I need to sell two trucks, I just can't bring myself to part with them haha. Four is too many I already have enough trouble trying to decide which one to drive.
