    Here it is! My BII!

    Well so far it looks like my old girl. Have any interior pictures? Rear bumper pictures? It's pretty cool seeing what has been done to it. It's strange that I sold it to someone who lived way up north and yet you bought it from west allis which is real close to where I moved.

    Here it is! My BII!

    Hey hu_u, I'd be really interested in seeing pictures. I still sometimes wonder " what if I never sold that truck". I stuck a lot of blood and sweat into this when I still owned it years ago. Crazy how where owners were all able to find and use the same forum. Lol.

    Here it is! My BII!

    Sorry guys, have not been on here in months. The first gen is way easier because its WAY less wires. no need for the dash, no need for the firewall, basically just pull out the old engine, splice some wires, and go. There are tons of threads on the fourms about doing a first gen swap. Any...

    Here it is! My BII!

    No updates as of yet. the only thing i have done is replaced one of the rear quarter windows. Money is the limitation now. The engine runs like a top, and it has so much power. (at least compared to the old pooch of a 2.8. If your doing this swap with this year of vehicle make sure you have...
