Get a block from a 1994+, since it'll be roller, find some good heads for a 302 (GT40 or GT40Ps for the budget minded) and have the head bolt holes drilled out to 1\2 (instead of 7\16) inch, and save for an edlebrock intake (351 intakes suck), get a good roller cam, a Mustang HO cam does well if you advance it(also for the budget minded). If your truck is not MAF then you'd probably need to convert, which is actually one of the easiest things I've ever done to my truck.

What he said. With one exception. Instead of a Mustang cam see if you could find a Lightning cam.

Lightning is flat tappet, can't be used in a roller setup.

Thanks guys. But i dont know. I have a 1995 ford f150 xlt 2x4 auto with the 351 in it. My plans so far is to make it a 4x4 5 speed. throw a 6 in or 8 in suspension lift on top of a 3 in body and make it more of a play toy. But street legal. I want to do a lot more than just that and would love to build my own bad ass motor to put in it. Any help with that?

Do yourself a favor ans start with a solid axle rather than lifting the ttb. If you have a long bed truck you can use 8" lift springs without much trouble, if it's a short bed your rear driveline angles might be too tight, unless you want to get a custom high-angle shaft.
You will need a a zf5 from a 3/4 or 1 ton truck, has to be a gas version small block pattern not a 460. The m5 will never hold the power of a built 351.
Good luck on the build

I would love to keep and build up the 351 for it tho. Its an extended cab long bed. Huge work in progress. Its my daily driver right now so i would like to start ordering the parts and that now so when the summer comes around i can yank the motor out and get that done and put back in right away. I will post pictures of it sometime tomorrow once i figure out how to.
