So as afew of you know I am contimplating a newer truck was thinking about an 03 7.3 crew cab dually, our son really wants my 91 IDI (god knows its like a new truck now) new motor glowplugs, glow plug controller, injectors, fuel pump, batteries altinator, starter, springs, shocks, steering box, ball joints, u joints, brakes,exhuast, and im due for tires, but ive had her for 5 years now and yes im stareting to know all about her due to you all, and know whats what if she doesnt sound so heathy, so if I keep her I would love to put a banks turbo with wastegate on her, even if I give it to our son my wife loves this truck and doesnt want to get rid of her, we do need a new ranch truck, (the old 74 gmc just aint cutting it anymore) so the dilemma is keep her turbo her, and buy a reg cab flat deck for the ranch truck, and find somthing else for the boy,(he currently has a 97 f150 reg cab 4x4 with a six and big tires) what a gas pig, but hates it (cause it wont tow much) and wants a er hum dodge diesel keep telling him we dont do dodges, but hes 16 so how hard is it to take out a gas motor and put an IDI in I looked at a 91 f350 the other day its a county truck good condition but its got a 460 in it, is the trans the same Ican get the flat deck for $1900.00 its a 5 speed. and does anyone have a sidewinder for sale? for the 91 3/4 ton?thnaks everyone:ford:

Where abouts in beautiful BC are you located? Sounds like your '91 has been good to you. Interested in a '95 F-350 CC's in the classified's on The Diesel Stop.
I'm not really sure what's involved with a conversion to duals besides an axle swap and fenders. I can tell you that once you do go to a crewcab, you'll never go back. I guess your wife's Forrunner didn't come from Austalia? We have a lot of Toyota and Nissan diesels around here...people are importing them...seems strange seeing the driver sitting in the "passenger" seat. Good luck with your treatments. One of my sister-in-laws just beat the cancer beast.
