Well I bought a 1996 EB a couple months ago, and was planning on building it into an offroader, but last week I picked up an 86 that I'm going to build instead.
the 96 is stock with 320,000km massair 5.8 E4OD, 31s and 3.08 gears.
the 86 has 351 HO C6 208 , 4.10 TTB front w/new 8"superlift, 9" 4.10 rear with homemade lift blocks.
no idea of actual miles. 44" MT FCs
rear wheel wells cut out . roll cage in the rear , interior pretty well stripped.
(this is the way I got it)
my plans for the 86:
dana 60 front detroit locker on 5.13s (F350 diesel leafs)
dana 70 rear powerlock on 5.13s (F350 4" blocks)
15"x10" 8bolt wheels w/39.5 15" swampers
will be trimming front fenders to match rears.
maybe a ZF 5spd at a later date.
my plans for the 96:
1997 7.3 PSD E4OD
Diesel front coils
then if I like how it works................
drop I beams, and a rear axle flip. probably put a 9" in then.
also have a parts 79 sunrise Bronco, 78 Texas shell/frame, 72 Bronco roadster summer toy stock except for a 351W
and I will be at the Ford/Mercury truck nationals on Aug 22, with either the 68 Merc or the 72 Bronco. haven't missed it in years!
