1977 Ford F-150

This 1977 For F-150 has come a long way since it won Cheap Truck Challenge back in 2013!  Until I got my hands on it the truck had lived its entire life in the Carson Valley, although since then I have driven it as far as Cabo San Lucas and Anchorage. It still has the vintage sheetmetal and patina, nearly every aspect of the dentside F-150 has been upgraded over the years to stand up to the 40-inch Nitto Trail Grapplers.  The original 351W, NP435, and NP205 have been upgraded with a 460, ZF5, and Off Road Design Doubler that puts an NP203 range box in front of the NP205.  Three-inch bypass shocks damp the Super Duty axles and make the Ford just as fun going fast as the ORD Doubler makes it fun going slow.
