    Plan B F250

    figured id add a quick build thread for my pos rig

    started as a $400 shit box that turned into a pretty good trail rig. then i got little crazy like normal and wanted to try racing it and well its pretty smashed up and not much longer for the world as have already started on its replacement



    after a little cutting and welding it was a pretty cool truck that i actually liked and was built pretty cheap



    found out that $400 truck are not ment to last and the motor gave up the battle and this is where i got crazy. got rid of the small block and did a 429 efi swap but also cut the frame off and built a new one

    doing more trial truck stuff and starting to show its body damage





    around this time it started to get the go fast parts and was beating on it harder and looking to start racing it

    3" bypasses and deaver springs



    3" coil overs



    then this happened

        then was time for a cage and little less sheet metal







        was race time again, this time at Insanity Fab Winter Challenge. i brought the suck and was was out pretty quick



        clipped a tree and busted a steering joint and was done



        also messed up the C pretty bad and had to change that



        then back to the trails

                  Looks better without the 3 boob light bar. But this rig isn't about looks.

                    the girlfriend was giving me a hard time about how ugly my truck is compared to everyone elses rigs till we went out and the truck flat out worked. now she still calls its ugly but wants to drive it when ever we go out

                      How wide outside tire to tire are you? On the BFGs or the boggers.

                          truck was running like ass at the race, could hear an exhaust leak but thought it was just the small crack i had found in my one header. so i ordered new headers, same ching chong ones i was running. turns out my leak was little more then just a header crack, found a big nasty one on my exhaust pipe right after the header flange. figured it would be an easy fix of put new headers on and weld a new flange part on and be good. well turns out the ching chong headers where a little off from the olds ones, about inch and half off so had to re work the Y pipe



                          with the crack fixed, new headers and gaskets truck ran best it ever has. went wheeling and no more stalling, running rich or backfires so really happy with it now.





                          been trying out the hole outdoorsy thing with the camper and been enjoying that





                          and with the whole out doors thing i have been building an "adventure" trailer. used 10.50 spindles so that the trailer is 8x170 same as my truck so can swap tires if need be as running my old 35s on the trailer

                              thats a hard one as i want to go back and try again as really brought the suck when i did race so would like some redemption. pretty sure if i was to do it i would class down in the smaller tire class as it was just crazy this year in the big tire class with full on race rigs and big hp and tires that it was no longer competitive for the average guy. will really come down to the boarders opening back up as so its just a waiting game but have pretty much written off racing in 2021 unless you yanks can calm the fuck down
