January 7, 2008I aquired an 88 F-250 diesel last weekend. It runs good but the cab and wiring are shot to hell on it. I found a guy with an 88 F-350 diesel that hes parting out. He's offering me the entire cab and front clip with all the wiring and interior, basically a 2 hour cab swap and I'm on the road. It sounds great to me so I want to work out a deal with him on it.
What I'm worried about is he has no title for the F-350. I' not so sure on what to do about the vin number. I certainly do not want my F-250 registered as an F-350 dually but I don't know how to go about making it legal. I could switch the door jamb stickers and vin plates but I'm pretty sure that's against the law too. I don't want to get pulled over for something stupid and go to jail for grand theft auto.
Any thoughts? Anybody done this?
