    Hey everyone i am getting ready to start my first hot rod project. I started off with a 7.3l idi ford diesel motor i got out of a 90 ford f350. i alway thought it would be cool to have a diesel rat rod truck. i have fully rebuilt the motor and just purchased an old ford f100 frame that was sandblasted primed and came with both axles for 100 bucks so i thought it was a good deal. i know im going to need a heavier rear end to handle the deisel motor. also i am trying to find a cab for the truck at the moment, let me know if you have one for sale or know where to find one.

    Let me know if you have any advice for me or ideas. i would greatly appreciate it!

    wish me luck, i will try to post some pictures of the project as i go along.
  2. FYI: rat rod is in disfavor here.

    good luck. You might try ratrodsrule or killbillet sites. This is a friendly suggestion.
