Welderup

So I have a 93 f350 idi turbo...single cab...rotted out body...here's my plan to basterdise it into a beast for clearing the road to my cottage..roughly 450 feet...i want to move the rear end as close to the back of the cabin as possible ( mostly for plowing in tight quaters)...ive searched the net for examples of this to no avail...anyone do this?? Yet..lol.

1992 f-350.4x4 srw.rebuilt e4od.rebuilt injection pump. no soup bowl,no muffler,straight pipe.. 8 foot power angle Artic blade/7 1/2 ft p/a Fisher blade. 280,000kms and counting.Paint to come.

Back in the day one of the members was cutting frames and adjusting length. Fabracator/welder by trade so his work was very nice. He also made lowrider bobcats for working in city drain systems. This was back in 2001 timeframe so I don't know if you can find the posts.

Its probably not that hard to do. Sounds like a fun project. You'll need some weight on the back to counterbalance the plow once you shorten the frame.

I don't know if you can still get them but we used to get lead weights from the tire shops, dump them in 4" black iron pipe and heat the pipe until the lead melted. I'm sure that was 14 different kinds of OHSA violations but they made great frame weights - just weld a tab on the pipe wherever you need one.
