driveshafts should be ok

drop pitman arm, shocks, maybe u bolts, maybe brake lines. you can make brake line extensions from hard line to drop it down. Lift coils fer the front. Do a shackle flip in the rear and swap in some leafs with a bigger arc or make a bastard pack. This is all on the cheap advice.

My drive shafts were to short on my bronco with the 6" lift.

My drive shafts were to short on my bronco with the 6" lift.

f150 has a longer wheelbase which will lessen the angle on the driveshaft drop compared to a bronco therefore the driveshaft will reach. if not you can always drop the transmission crossmember down with spacers. if you want to cheap out.

its a 77 it probaly needs new flex lines anyway brass fitings are 3to 5 bucks a peice same with short brake line so you spend 30 or 40buckson mickey mouseing it
and then its got more travel and rips out short flex line
and you have to buy longer lines or your looking for another truck
its cheeper to do it once right than doing it twice
is your life worth a hundred bucks ??
