Looks to me like they converted a 2wd to 4x4 using a 78-79 Bronco suspension and axles. The crossmember in front of motor is the giveaway.

A coil sprung, 5 lug Dana 44 front. Definitely had some donor parts from a half ton/Bronco. This, plus the paint scheme does not equal a $25,000 truck. To me at least.

Factory 460? Was the 460 available in the crew cab 2wd's? I know it wasn't an option in the 4wd.

No filler neck in the cab so unless they patched the hole when they did the paint then it's definitly a 2wd body. The front frame looks like a 2wd frame section as well. Besides the obvious half ton 44 and coils.

I believe that a 460 was optional in the 2wd crewcabs. Not sure how many were sold, but it shows as an option in the book. And even tho it's an option with the work that's been done to that truck there's no telling (without a closer inspection) if it's factory or not.

Still a nice truck. Not worth 25k to me but if you don't mind some of the mods it's still a nice truck.

I really like this truck. I don't mind the mods and the overall appearance is very stock/70's day 2 upgrade looking.

One thing I can't seem to determine for sure is if the rear end still has 8 lug wheels.
I assume that if the front was converted to 5 lug, they would have done the same to the rear, but there is no mention of that in the ad. From the one picture you can see the rear wheels it looks the same as the front, but I can't say for certain.

EDIT

I see now from this angle it clearly is a 5 lug rear end.

In the one pic you can see the Ford 9", probably from same Bronco.

I like 2-tones, but wouldn't this truck look a lot better if the roof was white?
