Default Double Aught F-250 Resto-mod

Alright, finally put a budget together to do some much needed updating to my 00 F250. This is my first major mods to the truck, first thread and first post on PSN. So wish me some luck. Here’s a few pics to get things rolling



Picked up a set of 06’ axles for a pretty good price.



Managed to get the bed off and the back section cleaned up decent. Turned out ok considering I basically just pressure washed, went over it with a cup brush. Then hit it with some Rustoleum Industrial.

So I guess I started the thread and didn’t really say what all my plans were. Basically the overall goal for the truck is to be a good daily driver that rides good, drives good and has good power. After all, with 293k on the clock the truck is getting tired.
So I decided to do the 05+ coil spring swap in the front using PMF’s 2.5” Alpha with Fox 2.0 non/resi, 3 link radius arms, heavy duty drag link and crown brake lines. For the rear I decided to keep my 00 Sterling 10.5 and run Fred Goeske’s 2” spacers. As far as the ride goes for the rear I decided on PMF’s 08+ leaf spring conversion hangers along with there 08+ soft ride leaf springs. Stopping will be handled with factory stuff but using crown brake lines at all 4 wheels.
To help with the power I bought some DieselSite goodies including their CPR fuel system, 4” Wicked BB turbo, PHP Hydra, new up pipes, plenum boots, and finishing it off with a set of gauges.

Factory hangers were removed simply because they look like crap next to the new PMF hangers. They can be left in place if you don’t wanna mess with the rivets. Removing the rivets isn’t that bad with some patience. Simply cut an X in the top of the rivet head and use a good air chisel to shear the head off, then a good punch and hammer can drive the rivet studs out the back. Be sure and replace the 4 rivets on each side that hold the cross member in place with some quality grade 8 bolts. Probably 99% of this job was done with 1/2”x 1.5” grade 8 hardware. There are a few mounting points in the front that require a slightly longer bolt. For drilling all the frame holes I bought 4 Neiko brand step bits on amazon that go up to 1/2” and some Irwin 1/8” speed bits for the pilot holes. I was worried I was going to burn through my step bits like crazy especially considering they were only 7 bucks a piece, was I wrong. I literally used the same pilot, and step but for every hole drilled on my truck, which was a pile. The key to these bits is patience, put your drill on its lowest speed, use hard steady pressure, and good cutting oil and it will last you no problem.

Wow, just realized what I did here. I meant to say PSA. My bad. I’ll probably get flamed.
