That has a nice ring to it...


Look power!!! I turned the rust bucket I bought shiny!!!





Before'ish



Same area'ish after...





The first two pictures above are a pretty good representation of what the whole cage looks like now. Gonna push it out tonight to pressure wash it so I can get started on the cleaning up the frame rails underneath and begin teardown of the rear suspension for inspection, clean up, paint and reassembly.

If someone can pick up that 6.0 and hold on to it for a few years for me I'll gladly come take it off your hands in early 2017.

For what you can get a RTR (ready to run) package from several companies, not to mention warranty, lower miles, NEW not rebuilt harness, tuned PCM and the support.....even the prices in that craigslist add are not good.....for example a RTR 350hp, less than 75K LQ9 6.0 with new harness, PCM with your spec tune ect...$3500-4K out the door. By the time you buy that 6.0 for $1200, the headache of re-working a harness, or buying a new one, sending the PCM out for tune, and all the misc. BS, trust me having one show up on a pallet ready to go can't be beat!!

To me, the warranty and support was the biggest factor....My warranty doesn't start until the 1st day I fire my engine up, and out of good faith call them to tell them I have it going!! Pretty awesome for a take-out engine! As an example, I bought the fancy racing/offroad oil pan ($450)! I have had my engine on a pallet for 6 months now and had never looked at what was underneath the shrinkwrap. A month ago when I finally unpackaged everything I found my fancy oil pan was crushed due to load shifting on the pallet. I called them, and had a new pan in 2 days, all I had to do was ship old one back!! They could have to me to pound sand.....I received it 6 months before!


And for the 5.3 guys RTR packages are $2500 all day!!!

Not to mention needing basically a whole new front end of the frame/suspension/axle to support the 1200 pound engine

Now if we can just get powr to decide where to drill the hole, we can be ready for the install.

Looks like we'll be starting sometime around February

The way I look at it sooner or later if you wheel anything but the least challenging trails you're going to dent the tub by accident no matter how careful you are so you might as well drill a bunch of holes, amour the crap out of it, and bash it into the rocks on purpose. It's way more fun when you don’t have to worry about dents and scratches. Now my fenders and rockers are just additional contact points I can slide and pivot on.

I tried that with my passenger side rock slider..... Didn't work out too well. So, any one want to help me build some thick walled 2x6 sliders??

Puck are you planning on cutting the rockers out and welding that 2x6 in its place? Just something I remember seeing but have never seen it in person.

Nope. It will be sitting under the rocker.
