    Looks like it buy the likes, I can appreciate all the work that goes into bagged or lifted nice trucks, but if they go more than a couple inches lower or higher than stock it just is not my thing, but I'm not the boss of the world so continue on gents.

    and as far as the truck thing, if it will carry over a ton of feathers in the bed it is a truck, if it will haul less that 1/2 ton it's a pickup

    A pickup has a separate open bed [it may be covered (tonneau or shell) or occupied with something such as a slide-in camper, but the base bed is open and not attached to the cab, unlike a ute (Ranchero, El Camino), Ridgeline, or Avalanche] and can be driven by someone with a standard operator's (Class C) license. A truck has a work body (lineman, plumber, electrician), box body (freight, moving truck), or otherwise requires a Class B or A license to operate, because of weight (>24,000#), brake technology (air), or articulation (semi).

    Switch countries and those license classes don't mean a darn thing

    Maybe should add, "...can also slide under it to free stuck shift linkage without using a jack." :lol3 Didn't know the Falcon had a separate bed. The Ranchero wasn't like that here.

    Earlier falcons weren't either, maybe just the last 5 or 10 years?

    Toll roads here in Melbourne use the same theory, so Falcon ute drivers are classed as a light truck, Holden ute drivers are cars. Some people are not happy!

    Lots of cabs for sale in this ad. You should be able to put together one pretty interesting truck from the available parts.

    1993 FORD F250

    fuel: diesel
    title status: clean
    transmission: other

    1993 FORD F250
    7.3 idi with e40d auto transmission
    290xxx miles
    just got a bunch of new parts to improve reliability, glow plug module, fuel pump, fuel filter....
    the cab Is a "mega cab" its a crew cab with the extended cab converted to the bac k side frame and cab are in great shape. looks good and is long. it is a long bed truck so it is quite long, has a nice aluminum bed on it.
    IT IS A 2WD truck , that being said I also have a parts truck that runs and drives just fine that is a 4x4 for the swap. it is a 1986 f350 4 speed with a 7.3 idi also, runs and drives great also. just has no bed because it is simply a parts truck.

    so there are 2 trucks that I'm selling one is quite unique, and the other is a good truck for a 4x4 swap every thing is there to make a real nice and one of a kind pickup truck all you need is time,

    how ever both trucks are completely fine as is and both run and drive perfectly fine I drive them both around the property regular.

    I'm asking $8200for the pair obo trades not really wanted but considered. my phone number is show contact info any questions or extra picks please feel free to ask ill send them no problem.

    both have clean and clear title.

    I agree, to me it's only a truck if it has straight frame rails front to rear.
