Default 1978 F250 Build.

My Truck, 1978 Ford F250
400 Cubic Inch motor
C4 or C6 auto tranny not sure which.
4x4 Dana 60 in the rear Dana 44 up front
Now my Dana 60 looks like its tagged 79 not 78.

Problems, Sadly I have a ignition problem I need to fix.
Gas Gauge never worked but found out my fuel float had a huge hole in it.
Speedometer doesn't work. All the other gauges work.

What I want to do is clean up the engine compartment.
Change my interior completely.
Put a new radio deck into it. I want to put a new seat in it. I have some friends that have 08 Dodge Ramn and honestly i dont likes dodges at all but I like the bench seat that they have it has a center console that still allows to fold up and become a three seat.
I want to Put an Edolbrock performer intake, and Four barrel carb on it. (Sadly it still has a two barrel on it)
I have Cab lights to put on it.
I want to put an Excursion or Super Duty 99-05 ish style tow mirrors on it replace the Stock small mirrors.
New Instrument panel on it with custom gauges.
I want to get 35" BFG All terrain tires for it.
Rhino line the bed.
I would love to add Fox Shocks to this truck.
And so many more things just cant think right now.

Sorry I cant upload photos yet, I keep getting this error message. I think its my Junky computer.

I've been getting that parse error message too. But sub'd lol also you can tell what tranny you have by the pan, it's most likely a C6 though, crawl up under there and look at the shape

Lol I agree the back bumper has to go! IMO so does the front. The dent I've worried how will I fix it. This is the style of back bumper I want. Also I finally got my package today from LMC!

That bumper is sick, I've been looking at a chrome one like that out of LMC without the winch of course. What did you order from LMC?
