    89 f 250

    I'm building pretty much that exact truck. Dana 60 from the same year ranges are direct bolt in. I bought an entire 86 F350 and just swapped the whole front suspension out of it.

    Chains/binders or Ratchet straps/axle loops?

    Re: Re: Chains/binders or Ratchet straps/axle loops? They also need to support 80% of the weight from moving in the forward direction under braking as well. 2 straps on the back end of a rig with WLL of ~3300lbs wont cover that on my rig. Full Bodied 88 F250 IDI diesel. Scaled at 6100lbs...

    1994 Ford Ranger trans?

    What to do with a 2002 Mustang GT?

    I mentioned the LM7 purely off this comment as it would possibly alleviate the need to rework the suspension. LM4's (aluminum 5.3L) are available as well. My DD (Saab 9-7x SUV) has one, trailblazers and Envoys also had them, L33s are available as well but more expensive and harder to find...

    What to do with a 2002 Mustang GT?

    I vote 5.3L LM7 with a small cam and a decent set of OEM heads. attach a T56 with the money you saved buying a iron 5.3L. The 5.3L appears per google to be very similar in weight to your 4.6L so that will help with your suspension setup.

    Im still confused how they can auction stolen items with a paper trail and say they are doing it for restitution. Just return the stolen tires to him and restitution is complete.

    How did u come up with the name of your rig???

    Rusty old F250 that I got off a guy at work for $1500, seemed fitting to call it the F-Turd50
