That's a good thing!  Clean title.. though depending on how you translate it, could also mean "cleansed" title which makes it sound like some salvage went through Alabama and came back with a regular title. ;)

If I was looking for a 4x4 HD I'd be all over that truck.  Last year of old interior, crew cab, gas engine... yeah!

EDIT - and apparently someone else was all over it; the ad is gone!

Crew Cab Area / Re: Crew Cab Conversion Information Wanted
« Last post by bridgepainter on December 09, 2018, 05:24:44 PM »
Awesome, thank you for the information.  The HD is currently a running truck, with the 6.5L Detroit turbodiesel, automatic transmission, and the Dana 80 rear with 5.13 gears.  I intend to keep the 6.5, odometer says ~185k so it should have plenty of life left.  Eventually, I would like to regear the rear end to 4.30 or even 4.10, between the tall gearing and it being a diesel, the revs would be a lot higher than I'd really like at highway speed.

Im not an expert when it comes to frame stretching so Ill stick to the drivetrain portion of this. Do you have a drivetrain to start with? Which engine would you like to end up with? If youre going the factory level route a 4l80e is ok, these trucks came with 4l85es, same thing but slightly different.
     Push button tcase for the 4l80e would be the np243c known to be pretty tough but not in the HD catagory, not to say it wouldnt be up for the job. One problem with the 243c is some of the yoke sizes for u joints and the fact that it never had a park brake mounted to it which you would need for inspection. Custom park brake set up are available for some t cases.
     Getting a Dana 70 front which was purpose built for this truck is going to be hard to find. Buying an axle set from an f450 from the early 2000s will be easier to find, they will be Dana axles but you will need the rims to go with them, not sure if f450 rear axle has a park brake or if you would still need a tcase brake. Lots more to consider so any questions are welcome
