Re- geared to 4:10 with ARB installed.


Ground down the lip on the bottom of diff.


Blocked off the disconnect


High steer


Done.


Time to stuff it back under for final mock up and to flex it out to see what size shocks ill need.

Had to get creative flexing it out. Too cold to take it outside.




Nice! The Full traction leafs seem to work well


I will go with an 8 inch shock in the back and 10 in the front. Most likely R9000s.

Custom cross member. Going to build one more to support the anti wrap bar in the rear.


E-fan off and escort. Had to build a bracket.


Headers off an astro van. I'm going to have them ceramic coated once we figure out the rest of the exhaust.


Oil pan off a 2wd s-10 really tucks it up there.


Transmission and tcase tucked up tight too.


Had to build a new shifter plate. Old vs new. Also had to cut and bend both shifters. I'm happy with the results.


Next steps are to finish the rear diff, order shocks and exhaust pieces, build the crossmember for the anti wrap bar and figure out a fuel pump/tank.... Hoping to have it ready for spring.

Thanks for looking!

I lucked out and found a 92 YJ gas tank in great shape for cheap. Going to try and mate the stock chevy fuel pump to it to achieve the required 60lbs pressure. Once that is done, and installed, I'll be able to see if I have room for dual exhaust. Fingers crossed!

Quite a bit of progress has been made. Unfortunately, cant go dual exhaust. Ordered up all mandrel bends, just have to fit, then off to ceramic coat.

Both diffs are re-geared, ARBed, painted and installed. Shock mounts are finished and some shiny new Bilsteins arrived.

Fuel system, oil cooler, wiring and brakes are pretty much all thats left.

I'll update the thread with some pics once I get them off my phone.

Figured I'd do up some gussets.


Front Shock mount out of a F-250

Finally got it on the road a few weeks ago. Had an issue with my "friend" who was supposed to finish up the wiring and a few other things, but wasn't doing anything... Needless to say, I pulled it and brought it to another shop and had it done in a week.

Drives really good, although at around 90km/h (55mph) I get death wobble, so I'll have to mount the the adjustable track bar and see how it goes. Only other issue is the fan controller. Started out working properly, but now it runs constantly, so I'll hopefully get to the bottom of that tomorrow.

I'll update this thread and take some pics soon.

I like the idea of a 4.3 swap. Lightweight, small package, good power easy to find parts. I'd love to find a Camanchee to put one in.

I'm continuing to work out the bugs. Had a couple leaks, replaced the clutch master cylinder and replaced a faulty fan relay.

I broke the first rule yesterday and went wheeling by myself on our property. Pretty mild as the ground is still frozen. Some deep snow, but nothing too tough. Tested out the lockers in a deep drift. They work. Would have had to test out the winch if they didn't.

I was solo, so no action shots.







I've decided not to install the adjustable trac bar for now. Just have to be aware on the pavement. Handles very well offroad with lots of traction. More pics to come over Easter weekend.

She'll be getting a bit of a workout this weekend so I hope to have better pics.
