Default My 96 CCSB - Superduty Coil swap and other mods

So not sure if I'm posting this in the right place, but I'm starting to Tear into my '96 again, Originally frame off restored about 8 years ago with a few suspension and other changes since. This was my first vehicle and was bought from my father at 188k and all rusted out when I was 16 (he bought it in '97 with 7K on it). Truck now has 270k and runs like a top.

Truck has a lower mileage 7.3 that was never rebuilt (prolly 180K now), rosewood 160cc with stock fuel and HPOP, 6.0 intercooler, and a BTS trans.

As part of this I'm trashing the old 5" aluminized straight pipe exhaust (already sold on CL) in favor for a Stainless 5" with muffler and going e-fuel as well a T500 Hpop.

The first time I did the restoration I had it on 8 in of lift (skyjacker springs) with 40's. After a few years of banging my teeth out and some maturity I decided to go to RSK with a 5.5" sky kit and 35's. That's how it sat up until a couple weeks ago when I sold my axles and susp and picked up a 2005 5.4l F250 superduty and began the swap. I also have a set of 2008 king ranch 18" with stock size tires. This will have a 2.5" carli starter Bilstein kit when complete, with PMF 2.5" drop brackets. The donor radiu brackets where pretty rusted anyway and I don't like the castor shims and couldn't justify the PMF 3 links. Rather put the money in E fuel and Terminator, they are both long overdue.

The truck as it sat 2 weeks ago:

And some old pics of the resto from years ago:

And the new owner of my axles was nice enough to send me a picture of them in their new home. this is 2wd Texas work truck getting some new life:
