Default 1985 F150 4x4/project

I have a 1985 single cab short F150 4X4. with about 185xxx on a 351W. rebuilt C-6 tranny with about 15 miles on it. NP208f transfer case that keeps popping out of gear. so that is the first thing im going to replace on it.
It has a 2" lift on 33'' swampers at the moment. I'll post some pictures later.

Truck looks to be in good shape. Winters around here are not as kind to trucks that age.

The bed is kind of beat up and I can see some bondo on the doors. But the inside is really clean for it's age.

Updates, I'm getting the transfer case rebuilt, changed spark plugs, oil, valve cover gaskets, and got a air canister.
Next will be going threw the fuel system and get a new filter for it.
