    OWN the Cumtruck! 78 f100xlt with cummins diesel

    Hey guys,

    Still not really sure I want to do this, but the practicalities of this beast are really not there for me at the moment. Have had kids now and need something I can cart then around in, so I am looking to offload this to get a diesel 80 series cruiser instead.

    All the details of this build are in my build thread if you want to check it out. A huge amount of time and money has gone into this, with only the best components used.

    Highlights:
    Genuine xlt with all the trim in reasonable nick.
    Fully rebuild cummins 4bt conversion, done about 12,000ks since cummins remanufacture in the USA. Front mount intercooled, modified p-pump, runs 35psi of boost and makes about 200hp.
    Hydraboost brakes with power steering, fluid all runs through a filter and cooler as well.
    Fully rebuilt zf 5 speed manual box
    Fully rebuilt np205 indestrucable transfer case (really)
    Bare metal respray with absolutely zero rust.
    Bare chassis rebuild, chassis coated with urethane coat.
    Brand new suspension, just installed superlift 4" coils and leaf springs, custom made adjustable track bar, extensed brake lines, drop boxes, blah blah blah.
    35" mickey Thompson atz p3s with about 2000ks on them.
    Fully rewired with new loom. Autometer gauges with gps speedo.
    Custom made bullbar and roll bar with big fuckoff lights.
    3" exhaust.
    Bucket seat conversion.

    Cons:
    I rushed the body work on the tub, so the paint is average. No rust at all but its rough. Could use a sand and another coat if you are pedantic. No aircon yet, which kinda sucks
    Other than that there isnt many other cons. Cruise around like a boss and drown out the crowd with heaps of tractor-y cummins goodness. The thing is huge, the bonnet literally comes up to my shoulder and i'm 6"4'.

    Will be sold with full rego and rwc.

    Honestly its hard to say what its worth. The engine and gearbox alone wouls fetch 12k or so to sell. Ive spoken to a few enthusiasts and consensus is somewhere arouns 25k. So will entertain offers around that at present.
    Havent advertised anywhere yet so PM me if you want more info. Truck is located in Emerald so its not exactly easy to view for you suburban types!

    Yes I know right! Its gonna hurt to sell this.
    Main issue is just the cabs on these arent well set up for tall lanky cunts like me. I have my seat all the way back and its still a bit cramped. Would be comfy for anyone up to about 6"2' i rekon.
    On a positive it gets around 10.5 to 11 litres per 100ks on the highway or around town... so its better than a hilux in all aspects.

    Am I fucking blind and can't see the price son?

    Edit: It was temporary blindness. More hast, less speed as they say.

    Hadnt seen a thread or anything on this before. Looks humorously fun.

    Do you still giggle every time you walk out to it?

    Hey dudes. Was having the rego discussion with someone else from the forum today. Ive never had issues in Qld and rekon it will pass roadworthy as is. I dont know how nsw will go though as its BIG. 4" suspension and 2" body lift. Would be easy enough to drop the body lift out for rego if you wanted to. The tyres wont be an issue. As for aircon it can definately be done. It will need a bracket fabbed up to mount the compressor up on top of the motor as the injection pump is in the normal logical place for it. Plenty of stuff on the net about it. I was going to mount a vintage air mini system up under the dash. Wouldnt need mutch as the single cab is relatively small and easy to cool.

    Its hard to describe just how much street presence this thing has. You can pretty much look a coach driver right in the eye. And then drag them off. And everyone else.

    If I was keeping it I had planned to go to 37s or 38s for the full monster truck look. Would still have plenty of wheel arch space i rekon. Mr Plod might get curious at that point though. Fuck. This is not making it any easier for me to sell this thing :/

    37s probably better for perspective.... massive lift without massive tyres gives the game away.... 37s or bigger makes it all relative (until you park next to... well anything lololol)

    With mine I chopped the accelerator pedal shaft so the pedal doesn't sit so far from the floor.

    I got 25k which was what I wanted. Fuck though it's going to be hard.... I drove it tonight to drop a dining table off to my sisters place, and though what the fuck am I doing!!!!
    I console myself though knowing I can finish the roadrunner now so that's alright I guess!
