1986 supercab

Just picked this truck up in Dec. Had a blown 9inch. Gave the guy 200 bucks , he said I'd need a trailer.... I walked around it, locked in the hubs in, pulled her into 4x4 and drove her away... And around town for 2 weeks like that. So here it is from start to now...

Is the back of the truck sitting low, or is it just the way it is sitting on the street?

BTW, nice work, rig looks good.

What a change! looks fantastic I just sold my 2 wheel drive '83 f250 Supercab. Been selling parts that I had collected over the years, not much left but here's what I still have.

tachometer but not the printed circuit board
rubber floor dimmer switch cap (hard to find)
spare gauges
gas pedal spring (which keeps the pedal flat on the arm)
digital clock
under hood work lamp
some other little things, have to look

let me know in a PM if you could use any of this, I'll give it to you for free

Thanks Big Jim, I also prefer the other body style better too. The one in my avatar pic is one I built previously.

Fellro, yep she sits slightly lower in the rear, planned it that way. I like to be different haha

Amkatt1, always good to know where to source more parts, espically rare and hard to find items. I'll definately keep you in mind . Thanks

I just dropped some coin on some chromalloy CV front axle shafts for the supercab. Can't wait. Also upgrading to 30 spline warn premium lockout hubs. Hoping for smooth power delivery to the front wheels while steering. Also the chromalloy shafts are significantly stronger than stock. That's good because they have to turn 39' superswampers.

I am a little confused... are you expecting the lockout hubs to make a difference when turning? Unless I am missing something, they won't make any difference there. They are simply to engage the axle so it will turn the wheels, but will not make a difference on the ability to turn while engaged.

Fellro, replacing the 3 u-joints axleshafts with chromalloy axle shafts with CV joints in place of the u-joints. Also upgrading from the 19 spline putter stubs to 30 spline outter spline stubs. I'll need the warn premium lockouts to work with this setup

I would expect the same issues on turns though even with all that. The lack of give between the front tires gives the catchy feeling when turning in 4wd, especially worse with lockers. CV joints are just a ball bearing u-joint in essence. I get that you are adding strength, it is the
