24v Cummins J20 service bed

Finally got a little free time so thought I'd post a link in the proper section to help others that are looking at options.

http://www.ifsja.org/forums/vb/showt...=110126&page=6

The link is to the post that starts the diesel part of the build. I have 2300 miles of daily use out of it. It's averaging 15 MPG with my lead foot and 8500# curb weight. I had to replace the lift pump last month and I still have less then $4500 total into this build. I found the donor for $3500.

Did I mention how much fun it is to drive?

8500 GVWR not curb weight. Dsl's are heavy but they aren't THAT heavy.

Idk, my '99 Ram 2500 with the Cummins scaled in at just over 7200# empty with only me in it...and I bet Jaber's service bed isn't light.
