A stout Dana 80 from an ’03 F-350 dually resides at the rear of the truck, and it’s been graced with a welded differential (a.k.a. Lincoln locker) and 4.63 gears. For zero travel, the rear suspension is blocked. The front Dana 60 makes use of a spool and 4.56 gears.
After diesel gravity feeds through a Beans Diesel Performance sump in the factory tank, it makes its way to this basic competition fuel system from Irate Diesel Performance. Combined with a regulated return system from Diesel Innovations, the Fuelab 41401 pump sends fuel to the rear of each head, and an adjustable Fuelab regulator keeps pressure set to 70 psi.
