LS3/4L80/Frame off resto Wagoneer!

Hey guys! Figured I'd post up the build thread of the Wagoneer while I do some research on here. The truck has been in the family for almost 30 years and we just can't get rid of it, it means far too much to us. It's been a long time coming to completely re do the truck inside and out, all the wiring is being re done, along with some minor metal and bodywork. It's getting a color change to green and the interior is being re done as well. We wanted something more reliable and emissions friendly than the 360, and we wanted overdrive as well. So the powertrain is going to be an E-rod LS3 with a 4L80E. Still undecided on the transfer case ATM.

Anyways, here goes! Should be pulling the driveline out this week.

Some initial pictures of the truck before the teardown!
