Do you think a hydro boost setup off a newer superduty would fit?

2002 Ford F 350 Hydro Booster used:eBay Motors (item 320404611115 end time Aug-02-09 19:49:49 PDT)

I found the f450 in 96 came with a 1 5/16 bore master. I don't know if thats needed or not but hey who cares.

New master for 80 bucks. Right around 50 for the 1.25 bore f350 parts. Not bad I guess.

wow, i don't sign on for two days and i miss the final product, damn, looks awesome, i wouldn't put a bumper in the rear, it would look awkward, at the most if it needed more support or anything just a bar going straight across the bedsides, but it looks sweet how it is.
me = jealous haha

a good price on a D60?

a set of chromo shafts and CTMs or Yukon super joints is gonna set you back more than what a D60 costs.. and your D44 shafts will then only be as strong as a stock 60.

What 4340 shafts did you have? I know some companies wont warranty a shaft if the ujoint failed causing the shaft to break.. Also heard moser has no warranty?

it would be best for me to go local. because i have 1976 f150 inners and 1977 F250 outers. Not to mention there are several different length shafts in that time period. its confusing

he asks for lengths anyways.

mosers are like $1300 with CTMs.. but since you have plenty of money go ahead and get the mosers.
