A friend of mine bought this truck as a project a while back and his dad owns a body shop so they have been restoring it. and... it is getting a 12v CTD swap as we speak!

Thats pretty cool but you still need to get that 12 valve!

I saw your posts back and forth about this on FB. I had planned on asking you about it.

Not bad..

That truck is one of the VERY FEW fords I would consider driving, but I definitely would! And don't worry Colton, if that truck is still for sale when I get my insurance money, it will be in my driveway shortly thereafter!!

It currently has a turbo'd nonintercooled IDI motor in it so the 12v will be a massive improvement. And 12v cummins are so easy and relatively cheap to make strong and fast ;)

Intake, exhaust and a chip!

well not even a chip! only thing electronic you can do to a 12v is torque converter lockup (which this truck already has ;) ) because the motor is all mechanical!! no expensive tuners to deal with! injectors, intake, exhaust, aftermarket fuel plate adjusted and a P-Pump off a '96-'98.5 12v opened up and that truck will RIP :)

I have a buddy doing a 98 CTD swap into a 79 Ford half ton...gonna be sick!

I think it would look awesome lowered about 6 inches!
