Well Ole Yeller is back in the shop, here are a few new pic's. Just getting started on her again, I'll keep y'all updated. Decided to keep the V6 and the offset D44 rear and the 18 transfer case. Need to replace the T14 transmission due to damaged case from the PO.

I am looking for the missing half of this style hood hinge, searched the web and several local junk yards, all I keep finding are the newer style. Does anyone have one laying around?

Found the proper hinge in a junk yard I didn't know was there, thanks to a fellow firefighter now I do.

The gas tank had a few holes so I steamed it out and welded all the holes. Don't try that at home boys an girls, I had access to a true steam cleaner and a LEL (gas tester).

Front D44 from an 84 dodge w100 narrowed 9 inches with ford bronco spindles, hubs and disc brakes, custom chrome molly axles, lock right locker and 4:88 gears. Still planning on using the 3.8L V6 but just talked to a buddy that has a high pinion ford 9 inch rear and a SB 350, turbo 350 and 205 transfer case. Might have to change direction again, the wife will love that. I have so many extra parts from direction changes, I need to have a parts sale.
