Default 1990 F 350 Crew Cab 7.3 diesel

I have decided to replace my single cab late model pickup with a 1990 F 350 Crew Cab 7.3 diesel for a number of reasons. Some of those reasons include; more room to haul grandkids, hauls the 5th wheel more easily, better fuel mileage, simpler and easier to work on, multi-fuel possibilities, cheaper license and registration, little or no emissions issues an d no computers. For that purpose I purchased the truck which appears to be in good mechanical condition with 108,000 miles. However, those miles have taken a great cosmetic toll and the truck looks disgraceful. Clear coat issues on the entire truck looks bad as do both bumpers severely bent. It has plain wheels, poor tires, many scratches but few actual dents.
Since the truck seems basically sound and is a pleasure to drive, the cosmetic issues can be addressed with accessories and colors I prefer.
Sound like a good plan? Anyone else replace a late-model truck with one 22 years old? Any suggestions?

108k miles! That thing is barely broke in! I have owned late model and older trucks and can honestly say that both have their pros and cons. Im sure you can find plenty of parts for your truck to bring her back. Che the JY's in your area. Most body parts will interchange between the the F150, 250, and 350.

The truck is two wheel drive. I would still like to get a little more ground clearance with bigger tires. I just need to get the front end lifted slightly to accommodate bigger tires and get a more level ride. Is there a kit for Ted front ends?
