History
Don't know much about it bought it sat for possibly 8 years in some guys yard in NC until the guy we bought it from bought it. All he did to it was a new radiator, a bad coolant temp sender, and put brand new tires on it. He bought it for his son but his son changed his mind on it and wanted a chevy c10. My dad and I went up there from North Georgia and looked at it, it was not in the best condition as it had a good amount of rust in the normal spots especially the tailgate. It was a struggle getting it on the trailer with the 302 which had bad gas in it. We took it home and started work on it.

Modifications

Drivetrain
We swapped the old 302 EFI for a 90's 351w with unknown miles because of the electric odometer. It was also EFI and took all that off and switched it to an Edelbrock AVS2 for the carburetor and an Edelbrock intake manifold. We changed the ignition system to an MSD one with an MSD Blaster SS coil and an MSD Pro Billet distributor. We changed the stock heads for 185 AFR heads and got JBA shorty headers.
Have also swapped in a sterling 10.25 with 3.73 gears and factory LSD carrier. Up front is also 3.73 with a Yukon Durga grip carrier.
Interior
Changed the front seats to 2017 f250 seats by using the bases from the old seats and welding them to the new ones.
Exterior
Front and back custom bumpers.
Audio
For a head unit, I have a KDC-X303 powering 4 kicker speakers in the original bronco sized speakers I also have a 10-inch kicker sub that goes under the driver seat.
Exhaust
True dual 3” exhaust with an x pipe exiting behind back tires at about a 90 degree angle on both sides.
Suspension
I’ve got JBG 4” coil springs as well as 4” shocks from JBG. I’ve also got the dual shocks up front. JBG HD leaf springs with a 2” lift block to account for the 4” springs.
Wheel and Tire
I have 285/70r17 Falken Wildpeak AT tires.
