We done plent of FI swaps also. We are most likely keeping the Fuel injection. The carb idea was for something different. The 4.6 DOHC swaps are becoming way more common these days so we were looking to change it up a little. Yes we are looking at used the Mark front end also but no ABS though, Cust does not want that. I think I have him talked in to keeping the factory air ride though. We will see as it comes together.

I wish I hadn't been such a teenager and sold it 2 years later...

No rust in the floors. Just a very small amount in the cab corner. As soon as the engine and trans are fitted the Cab is going to the blaster.

keep it

Efi is the way to go. Better gas mileage, driveability, the whole nine yards. Just like you said to. Turn the key and go. Love it.

Well this project has been moving a little slower than I would like but hey, what can you do when almost everything is custom. I will have some more pics soon. The cab is almost finished at the body shop, then it is off the the inter. guy. I am still qorking on the chassis. I am currently setting up the rear IFS and have it almost completed. The front is going to end up being a striaght forward MII style as the spindles and upper control arms would not end up in the locations I wanted. Still having to make a custom front crossmember and control arms for the spindle location that we want.
I will try to get some more pics soon
