Turbo 4 Conversion, The Nasty Hoe Gets Blown!

That's right, I couldn't keep it under wraps any longer, and so the first stage of the conversion and re-vamp of the whole truck begins.

In short, which I'll go into detail once I get back to labratory this evening is:

Complete front clip transformataion in sheet metal work, including custom fenders and hood, front bumper w/winch and lights.

Slick roof line.

Complete drivetrain conversion (from engine, tranny to transfer case) and custom wiring harness.

Super soft 6.5" Rock Crawler front spring and hiem joints on the adjustable extended radius arms.

With 5.13's front a rear with already existing Lincoln Locker out back and LSD clutch style modified in the front.

Although there are about 80% of the parts already collected, there are still a few more to obtain and or fabricate up to make this happen, I will go through and document and keep you filled in on ever aspect of this adventure as I plug away at it, this will take some time, and the buget is nill, but when I get back and fill you in on how I got some of the existing stuff, and how I plan on working the rest of it, you'll see than anyone on any buget can do this to.

I hope you all will enjoy this, and although this was way more premature of a posting that I wanted to do, it was like waiting for Santa to show on X-Mas.

If you don't know what's already been done to my truck you can click the link "My Junk" below in my sig, and this will be the next exciting phase in it's evolution.

If you have questions, lemme be the first to say, "PLASE ASK"

Oh, and can you please update your location to Red Bluff in your profile.
 


















Just go ahead and get a D50 TTB, and take a truck 9" w/strange center 35spline Detroit and combine it with a junkyard D70. Full float 35 spline 8 lug 9" to match the 50 up front. Then some triple bypasses and airbumps and you're golden. :p:

Just bring them with you when you come to get your .42 trim T3 turbo June 6th for your desert runner, we'll work out something over dinner and drinks.

I'm sure the ladies will keep themselves busy for us to work out the business end of things.

Nah, the 9" wouldnt be much heavier than stock and the TTB50 isnt THAT big... wont matter once you get the Fox CO's, bypasses, and airbumps on there. :p: The idea is so you can hit the rough stuff on 35's at high speed with no breakage worries (and let me ride in it)
 






Ok, after two days of catching up on all 257 posts, I'm No. 258, and subscribing! This is a cool build, best of luck, SVO!
 






The rig will be awesome when you are done with it.
