More info on truck:

Inner fenders were tourch cut to allow more tire clearance. All windows are power windows and roll up and down slowly. Rear sliding window was rebuilt with new GM parts. Rear top has never been removed. The truck seats were falling threw the floor when I got it, due to cracks in the floor pan. These were cut out and rewelded.

The truck might appear to be dirty. It is. It is a sound off road truck that is a lot of fun and it never has broken a part or left me in the field. It has been stuck in the mud but never deeper than the bottom of the motor.

Truck cranks first time every time and has a cool unique sound. Truck drives good on the road and tires run smooth. Where I live you dont have emissons so I drive it on the road. It doesnt have a cat.

Front frame had brace welded in that contains a receiver hitch to pull you out if you need it. 2 front tow hooks. Front and rear bumpers are high clearance, brush guard and off road lights on front bumper have not yet been added. I actually walk around on the front bumper as it is so I havent done much with it. The rear fuel tank carrier slides off the rear bumper and is easy to move. If you need to get in the tail gate.

When I needed a winch i would carry it in side the truck. I have a removable winch mount that can be used front or rear. I will include winch mount with truck. I hate a dirty winch. Mine stays new and rides inside.

Never seen a Ford D60 passenger side pumpkin.
Was this axle built from a Ford centersection with GM outers?

I didn't notice this, but it's what I assumed since he said Hi pinion, and I have seen that done before.
SO this probably cost a bunch of the 27k

If you are considering buying a truck and doing a bullet proof build this is what it took for me. This truck drives to the mud bog and drives home every time year after year. It is easy to look back and say man I cant believe it cost this much, or that is a lot, but then I think of the long cold wet nights that were spent broken down on a trail out of cell reach or in a mud hole or in a field that a 4 x 4 tractor can not get you out of and/or no wrecker in the world has a long enough cable to help get you out of your jamb. All these things happened to me in the last 15 years with other trucks. Thinking about those hard times is what made me build it this WAY the 3rd time round and I know it is worth every penny.
