I'm too excited and broke...I can't wait to load up my 88R, into my 80' f250. This thing is close to immaculate...just got it tonight so I'm going a little crazy.  I'd start it up but I have a 4 yr old boy who's asleep and really wants to go for a ride.  I'm going crazy staring at it through the window

I understand what you're saying. I have a 83 crew cab dodge I've been doing a Cummins swap on. Been way to long of a project. Gets put to the back burner to often

Powdered the frame a dark metallic gray, tmx carb, rpm hubs, polished all aluminum, new esr 5 pipe and silencer, esr  brake and shift pedals, picked up some hiper wheels.  Speaking of, anyone looking for 10" orange rings?  I want black.  My rings are in excellent shape.  I think that's all I've done since march, I've been busy with life.  Have only put around 6 gallons of gas through it but am very impressed with the 330 esr pv and other upgrades.

Hickwheeler. The tmx was already tuned for the most part, as it was set up on an almost exact duplicate of the parts I chose for my machine.  Put everything together and it ran great.  All except for the fact I'm having major carb/intake/frame alignment issues.  I haven't had much run time unfortunately

Havinnoj thanks, like I've said earlier in this thread, it's nowhere near some of the other builds here but I'm liking it more and more.
