Yesterday an 05 350 Rancher popped up about 20 mins away from me. $300, missing top end, and crap mismatched wheels and tires, but otherwise complete and looked good.
I ran out and picked it up.
Kid took the top end to a local shop that shut down a while back, and apparently hasn't been able to get ahold of anyone to get his top end back.
I have some extra 350 parts from my neighbors' build so I jumped on it.
Thinking about trying one of the cheap ebay new cylinders that come with a piston and top end gaskets.
Will put 420 or SSATV discs on the front, convert it to footshift (it's an ES) and add either a 424 to it or might try to put a 400AT front diff in and wire the actuator in.
That's the third project I've picked up in the last week.
07 Foreman with no rear end, wheels, or top end for $350
89 300 in ROUGH shape, but complete for $200
05 350 Rancher with no top end for $300
Now I just gotta figure out how I'm gonna pay bills this month.
