    who wants to get together and help me put a 96 F350 crew cab on a 01 SD frame?

    condition of the 96 is:
    interior is gutted.
    body mounts and front end still installed.
    electrical has been stripped.


    the 01 SD frame has a bed on it, but not in the way.

    both body mounts are approx. 45" apart.
    both trucks have a distance of 26" from the body mount to the top ball joint.
    common core math states it will bolt up.

    rear mounts will need to be done, but a non issue right now.

    the lazy way is to simply unbolt all 6 body mounts out of the obs, and leave the front end on.

    the safe way is to blow the front end off.

    im down for either or LOL

    the goal is to get the body swapped, and the 2 front mounts bolted in.
    I may have other parts to bolt on if we get bored.

    time frame is open. when are you "free"?

    if I was to do this on my own, by myself, I would slate about 4-6 hours.
    I have the equipment to lift the cab. and hardware to keep it steady.

    beverages and hamburgers will be at the ready.

    payment will be in parts, anything on the trailer(not the trailer itself) is up for grabs! :)
    trailer consist of 6.9 & 7.3 IDI parts & 1984-1996 F series items.

    If I was in Cali I'd be totally down. I just lost out on a clean '88 cab.....Got crushed last week.....And yes IDIoit, I know my timing sucks. When you get another dash, Let me know.

    my time buying parts trucks are about over.
    unless its free, I wont get it.
    I have just about everything I need for my 80-97 trucks.
    im gonna get the ones I have done, and move on to other types of vehicles and vessels
    I absolutely love my trucks, but I wanna get back to my boats and hotrods :D

    but im definitely done with brick noses.

    If you come across one then, Can you let me know? My father gave me this truck and it has alot of family history so I'd like to get it as pristine as I can. The current dash has 4 holes where it had a motorola mounted to it and crappy blue paint over the holes. Also has a 1/4" crack or two in it. And I believe its faded.
