3500HD CrewCab project
« on: September 15, 2010, 08:34:03 PM »
I'm Greg Youens. I own 4wd Factory.  Check out my intro post and it explains how I ended up with this truck.  I purchased this truck to tow my 4x4 toys around.  I needed something to safely tow a couple of 4x4s with lots of tools and spare parts.  My 92 Dodge dually had plenty of power but the rest of the truck wasn't heavy duty enough and I wanted a crewcab.  I purchased a 99 F450 crewcab it left me stranded several times and the upkeep cost was really high (water pump, high pressure oil pump, etc).  I got to thinking about putting a cummins it the F450 but never liked the way the engine was under the windshield.  I thought a GM would be a better candidate.  Well the F450 had an untimely death and found this 3500hd.  Its running pretty good right now so I'm going to go slow and plan out what I want to do with it.  I thinking Cummins, I have a zf6 w/ transfer case so might use it.  So maybe convert it to 4wd.   I have to do something with the bed, its to long in the rear for a gooseneck.  Here's some pics I'll keep updating as I proceed.

Greg

Looks like you have plenty of extra frame rail behind the rear tires that could be trimmed off if you want a shorter bed.

Check out the post "Raymo's '94 HD rebuild" moving the rear axle forward might be an additional option.

BTW: There are a couple of 3500HD fuel tank location options.
