I was looking for a site with alot of topics/threads on the 97-03 F150's and here I am.
I have been looking for any information on cab removal on these years and what all is involved. I have a 2001 F150 7700 XLT Supercab 4X4 shortbox that was on dual fuel, gas/CNG (Natural gas) The truck has 263,000 km's on it and have been plagued with a misfire on cylinder #5. Well turns out, I have a burnt exhaust valve. So rather than tear the engine out and rebuild it, I have bought a roll-over same year with 134,000 km's. What I plan on doing is switching the cab and the box onto this frame/chassis. The guy I bought it from said it isn't running, you know that dreaded 1260 theft code!!!!<---more about that some other time
Well I got past that and it runs mint. Put the truck on on stands and let it warm up and had it cruising at 120 km/h for about 5 minutes, no check engine light and no codes. It was a well looked after truck. I now have the box off and want to prep for cab removal.
So long story short, any info/help/websites would be greatly appreciated and only hope I can help others out here too
ya, it's a 2001 7700 as well, same everything, year, and body style. I figure it will be way easier than to pull everything and just re use my original frame. My big hurdle will be lifting the cab. My garage is only a 7 foot ceiling so I will have to do this outside. oh well see how it goes
This what the truck looked like when it was delivered, I think it was rolled in the winter on snow cause there are no scratches on the paint, weird just dented up really bad and the roof is pushed in a bit. It was an insurance write off the only exterior part worth keeping was the rear bumper, it is MINT and the running boards/steps. The front bumper looked really good but the passenger side had a large minor dent.
