84 F150 2wd

Hi Folks,

A friend of mine has a stock 84 F150 2wd inline 6 that he would like to convert into a prerunner. It is his daily driver, and he intends to go off-road with it on occasion. He lives south of Dallas where prerunners are very rare and does not have the advantage of being close to any of the good, So Cal off-road racing fab shops, like Donahoe, Camburg (just to name a few). Any ideas, suggestions or advice on where to start? Any F150 forums or websites that might have some good articles on building a mid 80's F150 2wd prerunner?

Thanks for any help. Take care,


BooRunner (Ed)

Bent I-beams, custom radius arms, custom coil buckets, and good off-road shocks(bilstein or the like) Maybe fiberglass. Get a hold of perry McNeil of Perry's Fab And Fiber (also McNeil Racing) and see if he'll ship his stuff. If I had ford, that's where I'd go...

Thanks a bunch, Aaron. I'll check out McNeil Racing and see what they say.

I'd check out Spirit Racing in Lakeside Ca as well. Jeremy built a stock full F350 that beat all the protrucks, all the class 8s, and all the class 7s in the Baja 2000. I don't have the contact info handy, but I'll get it for you if you need me to.

George.

Hey George,

Thanks for the tip on Spirit Racing. If you don't mind, could you provide me with some contact info? I guess it doesn't hurt to have as many options as possible.

Take care,

Hey Ed:

I guess I should have been able to figure this out on Friday. They're on the web at www.spiritracing.com/.

George.
