I guess my good luck wish helped, glad you found one. Try contacting Atlas and asking them what to look for in a used case and if you can still get parts. Good luck again,
Richard

i found a 600 buck one at a local JY he said it was from a guys mud run truck some 1990 f 150 yall think it's a good one or since it was a mud run truck it might not be good?
for the price i would check it out really good it seems kinda strange that some one left it in the truck and sent it to the junk yard. i would by it up in hart beat if it felt tight and the oil was not full of shaving's

i think the 2003 would be sweet but it would have to be fuel injected 302 it would look and run so much better or maybe a 2003 mustang v8 would be killer and a staight axle conversion would be killer to. what i mean about being tight is see if there is excesive slop when you spin the yoke's and if there is any side to side slop. it could meen it needs a rebuild but if it was the guys personal truck im shure its fine.

Enough money, time, and modification: anything will fit and work in anything. Yeh, the motor should be able to work in the 03 without major modifications. Just make sure you get the the computer and all the wiring as well. If the trans tailhousing can be changed to accept a transfer case, I would take that.
