Default Shorty Redux....

Haven't been on much and missed quite a few events in the last 18 months or so......but finally looks like that is about to change, with the shop up and running smoothly and have a little more free time, its time to get started on our first diesel project. My first shorty, that I named Frankenstein, met a tragic end, after putting her in the ditch, but I always said I will build another.......and the time has come.

A brief history on the donor truck, a very good customer of ours bought a low mile 2006 F450 utility truck that they thought was clean and well maintained. After one long, hard trip up into the mountains hauling solar panels, trailer with bobcat, his guys overheated the truck 3 or 4 times to the point of shut down. They got it towed to us and explained he never wanted to worry about the truck again......so we yanked the cab, pulled the motor so the machine shop could check the block........and after a new set of injectors, heads, studs, and everything bulletproof sells it was probably one of the best running stock 6.0s I've ever driven.........fast forward a week later, 2nd trip out with our customers guys......the filled it up with gasoline, lol...........needless to say, he was done with it.

So we decided to give her a third chance at life.........but a lil more classy a lil more power, and of course shorter.
