    My F150 got damaged during service in the most bonehead way possible. They managed to lift it too high on a lift and bent the fuck out of shit. The weird thing is I was calm as a cucumber since they're making it right. No putting them on blast via social media, no leaving shit reviews because shit just happens.

    Maybe one of these days I'll sign up for another one. I was with photobucket forever. It was about the time my BMW E30 days where winding down and I sold on eBay a lot. I was never a hoarder when it came to photo hosting I'd maybe have 20-40 pics up at a time if that.

    I suggest you get a rear axle and front spindles along with some rollers and rent a tow dolly. You can definitely tow that with your truck.

    My 5-Lug axle won’t work since it’s a 6-lug frame.

    Leaf spring setups are different, unless you don’t have to hook those up

    Hold on a second wouldn’t you need 6-lug steering knuckle setup and rear 6-lug axle since you’re doing a conversion?

    I don’t see the point of using the 5-life stuff, which is completely unique.

    I’m sure he has everything you need.

    I was joking about using your rear axel to make ita partial roller just to bring it here. Front i would need all 6lug stuff. Its the rear thats kinda universal, to make a rollar atleast just to bring it here

    What gear ratio do you have? He’s getting a 4x4 truck tomorrow so I would just ask him if he’d sell the full suspension setup off that truck.

    Hell I’d even buy the transmission off of it. I think it’s an R150F.

    Here’s your chance to make your truck 6-Lug 4WD. Take it!

    You can store the frame on its side for the time being. Build a frame out of two furniture dollies and some wood to save space.

    He will have everything you need to make your truck 4WD. He’s a great guy, I picked my bed up from him. I’m sure you can work something out.

    He’s not that far either.
