Ford F250 4×4 Upgrade Project

We came across this 2003 Ford F250 4x4 Lariet for 9 grand. It had 304 thousand miles on the last of the 7.3L diesel engines and was in great shape. The engine was spotless and ran perfectly. The transmission was also faultless. The interior was like new and the exterior exhibited only minor distress. It was a fence company's superintendent's truck used to survey job sites. The only problem we noted was a near total lack of steering control and well worn offroad tires three sizes larger than stock.

Coyote Swapped ’58 F100 Pickup

He's got a Coyote powered '63 Falcon and a Coyote powered '71 Maverick and can you not guess what motivates in 1958 Ford F100 pickup? Despite its ungainly broad dimensions, the 5.0L Coyote has become increasingly popular swap material with enthuisasts and Tom wholeheartedly participates in the movement. The tired 272 Y-block in his early pickup seemed ready for retirement and Tom had just the replacement in mind. From previous experience with the smaller and narrower Falcon and Maverick chassis, he was more than comfortable about sizing a Coyote into his truck.

The Coyote engine and attending hardware under the hood give the F100 a decidedly modern appearance.
