R.I.P. '02.. Hello Full-Size!

Hey guys.. it's been awhile..

On June 10 while my 2wd '02 was parked on the street a car whose driver fell asleep at the wheel plowed into the rear of my truck. The impact was so great (guessing 50+ mph) my truck was catapulted from right in front of my house into the far side of the front yard two houses down from me. A few days later my insurance totaled it. All in all, things happen for a reason as this enabled me to finally get a full-size as a tow rig for my FX4.

Here are some visuals..

My battered '02:

Annddd the replacement..

I'm gettin' some new shoes and a new set of front springs as the current set are completely shot. Pics of the upgrades to follow.










Also.. my buddy's '74 F100. He's about to replace the 390/C6 with a 460/C6 from a '78 F350 we just picked up for cheap (I'm takin' the D70 rear ).

Both your truck look great. That 6.9 is indestructible, but slow.
