    I used the bandito with off road suspension and 5 lug hubs with 15x9 STX wheels for testing this since the bronco has not been updated yet. The biggest I could fit without clipping where 35" super swampers, however due to how the model is made it would be super easy to make cut fenders, and I plan on using the F150 to make a custom off road version like the one below

    Do you plan on making a trophy truck kind of version, the one where the body is just a shell.

    not that advanced but an 80's style monster truck is planned, I have to make a frame, make suspension,maybe barrow tires from the CRD and I have to figure out if I am using an upgraded 460 or a marine engine

    I fixed the cab and I have figured out rim sizes for factory rims, off road ones will be 15x10
    base 4 hole steel rims are 15x6
    styled steel rims are 15x7
    10 hole aluminum are 15x7
    5 hole aluminum are 15x7
    center caps are chrome or black
    this means I cannot use vanilla wheels for factory since they are not the right size

    I spent a bit more time fixing files. I still have to do the frame, suspension,inner and outer fenders and mirrors it seems to take 10-30+ mins per file and is really tedious and repetitive but I am almost done with this important step

    For the 7.3 is it going to be a 1988-1994 naturally aspirated IDI, a 1993-1994 Turbo IDI, or a 1994.5-2004 Turbo T444E (First-gen Powerstroke)?

    I would love to see any of these, however the naturally aspirated IDI holds a special place in my heart as the first vehicle I ever bought was a 1992 F-250 Custom with the 7.3 IDI

    I am not sure, probably whichever is the most common, I need to do a bit more work and I want to finish what I have a model for before I do things like this

    This is sick! Do you plan on making any other vehicles once this is fully released/no longer in alpha or beta?

    I need help with 3D models and textures, if you can do those then pm me. I have found and started converting some GTA SA models by the same author as this one but I have no clue what to do about textures

    The 7.3 Powerstroke is more popular to the coal rollin' crowd, guys who want hauling and durability tend to go with the N/A IDI. The 1994 IDI had a turbo option, which used the International motor instead of 1995 when Ford produced the 7.3, and thats when Ford made it the Powerstroke with a turbo. The turbo IDI is the most popular among the Ford guys all around.

    I just have the frame left to fix, then I am adding a basic implementation of global wheels so I don't have to mess with hubwheels for now, and then a new beta will be released.

    I finished removing scalenode, new issues have appeared though, the grille is unstable, the driver door hinge is broken, and it has no wheels since I temporarily removed them.

    I fixed the instabilities I caused from not paying enough attention
