Owner says: “I have always loved a strong and reliable Cummins but also loved the OBS Fords. I was determined to have the best of both worlds! Once I was ready to convert my F-150 into something better, the fun began. Finding a rust-free OBS Ford frame was not easy, but I was lucky enough to stumble across one. Next on the list was finding a good engine. Then came the prep work, which included fitting the engine in the new frame, ordering all the odd ends and parts, and then swapping over the cab from my original truck. In one day, we had the cab sitting on the new frame. Next was wiring everything up to get my beast running. Wiring took about five days to complete. It was then finally able to drive around the shop. A few days later, she was on the road. Words do not begin to describe how happy my truck makes me. It may have taken a while to complete, but it was done the correct way, and I couldn't be more pleased! I plan on upgrading the turbo and doing a compound setup, bigger injectors, and completely repainting my truck. Don't ever let someone tell you you can't do something you love!”
