    Dentsides of IBB

    Well, we have a Bronco thread....why not a Dentside thread....

    Mine's a '77 shortbed, pretty much rust free save for a tiny bit of bubbling on one of the rear fender lips
    Fresh 351M, NP435/NP205
    9"/D44 combo. Both ends have Chrome moly shafts; rear has a Detroit, Front has a Detroit True Trac, Warn premiums, 4.10 gears
    5" Deaver springs
    Lengthened driveshafts, longer brake lines
    Custom Sliders with steps so the woman can get in
    Bilstein remote res shocks
    Drop pitman arm and adjustable track bar with a much stronger than stock frame side mount
    Duff Long arms up front
    ProtoFab bumpers for a Bronco
    Suspension seats
    GM 1 wire Alternator / Dual Batteries
    Bunch of toolboxes
    35s on 15" Aluminum Discount Tire specials
    78-79 style steering
    Cheapo HF Winch
    Dakota Dash
    R134 Aftermarket AC
    Uniden trucker radio with a Wilson 1000
    Champion Radiator (not sure this was worth the money)
    Lots and lots of new replacement parts

    It's been a fun project for the past 4 years that likes to eat paychecks. I always get the familiar "I used to have one of those back in the day" type comments on it.

    1978 F150 4x4 short bed regular cab
    • Originally had a 5.8/351M but blew that up and swapped in a remanufactured 6.6/400 with an RV cam and all of the smog stuff when I moved back to CA last year (it's a Federal truck luckily).
    • Stock C6/NP205
    • Stock Dana 44 hi-pinion and Ford 9-inch
    • 1-2" Superlift springs in the front (ride great but closer to stock or 1" in height)
    • 4" Deaver springs in the rear with the factory lift-block removed for 1" of total lift.
    • Bilstein 5100's all around
    • BFGoodrich KM3's 33x15x12.5 on stock rims

    It's currently my only vehicle but shopping for a 66-75 Bronco to handle daily driving and build the F150 up. Those plans would be the next stage and include:
    • Superduty axles using the RuffStuff radius arm kit,
    • 40 inch tires
    • ARB lockers
    • Sliders
    • cage

    Top three pics are the most current; last two are the day after I bought it and drove it from Charlottesville, VA to Norfolk, VA.

            79 f250, currently with a small block Windsor, leaky np435, 205 transfer case, 60 rear and 44hd front. It’s a little bit crusty, but I like it anyway.

            so far I’ve bolted tool boxes to the flatbed, re-wired the entire thing, new exhaust, replaced the shift forks in the 435 after the trans locked up on me, new brake lines, swapped in a super duty booster and master cylinder, and dicked with the carb 9000 times trying to get it to run right.

            Future plans involve stuffing in a free, running 460 I lucked into, swapping to a hydraulic clutch because that’s what the bell housing I have for the bbf is set up for, and maybe sticking a sterling under the rear. Oh, and either Holley or fitech efi, so I can stop messing with a carb, because I’m too stupid to work those things

              Not mine, but it’s my all time favorite dentside. The build was called “the fodge” over on the other site, I can’t check the dudes name because I’ve been banned again, but it hasn’t been updated in years and I doubt he will bring it over here. But he swapped the dentside body onto a Dodge Ram frame to gain the Cummins, built a flatbed for it, and proceeded to use the ever loving hell out of it

                I got this in January. It is in the garage now. 1976 f100. 360, 4 speed. Needs some work. D-Rat, do you know what rear bumper that is? Mine has one, and i thought it was a farmer build, then I saw another dent not far from me that had the same bumper.

                  Any chance we can edit the title to include the bumpsides too? I know we have a couple of them kicking around on irate4x4, and some of them are very nice

                    Protofab in Mayer, AZ built mine....looks about the same as yours but with the tire carrier. Bronco Graveyard sold them for a while, but I don't think they're offered any longer there.

                        My '76. 460/NP435, axles are '78-9 HP44/60, 78 steering box with RuffStuff crossover steering. It's my weekend cruiser mostly, and an excuse to buy cool old wheels when I find em like the American Racing Vectors that are currently on it. Body is rough around the edges but I kinda prefer it that way because I only have to wash it once a year.
