New girl here...need advice about my 77 f-250
Howdy! I'm new to this site...and new to trucks. I just bought a 77 3/4 ton...We're puttin' a 429 in it. It has a c-6 tranny that we are going to rebuild. Married 205 transfercase. 6 inch Skyjacker suspension, 3 inch body lift. Triple shocks on the front and duals in the back. A dana 44 open in front, rear is a dana 60 with a posi. Currently the front gear is 4:10, and the back 7:17. It's set up for mudding and off-roading, but I'm not going to use it for that as much, so we are thinking about putting 4:10's in the back too. It has dick cepek 38.5/15.5/16.5 tires. I guess what I want to know is...does anyone have a guestimate of how much it would cost me for parts if I put a 4:10 in, and got a new front drive shaft? And I'm trying to decide between a roll bar and stacks. Is there a way to put both of them and still have it look nice, or is it a one or the other kinda thing? Any ideas for what else I should do to it? I'm just curious about what ya'll have to say. Thanks!
