It's a awesome truck and very cool to read the build process from time to time.

This would also a good work truck for a farrier

Love that it's still earning a solid living doing what a truck should do. Nice VW bus too.

For the first time in 11 yrs of driving this truck, it finally has 4wd again.

I also put an all aluminum 3 core radiator, a boost fooler and adjustable boost elbow. I am finally feeling the 40 over injectors now.
Damn thing needs tires again...

Needs tires? That's a good thing! Means you're getting use out of it. Great rig man.

HEY GUYS, how ya been?



Fed-ex just dropped off 4 new thunderer mud track tires in a 285 75 16 shoe size.
Should have them on soon, then its going to need ball joints. Not done anything major but fuel and drive. I did a pair of batteries from Costco a few months ago. I put an adjustable boost elbow, boost fooler, and boost guage in.
Put the front shaft in, when it snowed, it wouldn't engage the front axle. Pulled the vac cover off and manually engaged it. Pulled it apart on a dry day and the shaft on the vac shifter was seized, got it freed and working, hope it works next time.



She's almost to 285k and still running as well as when I started. Thats 30k miles in this configuration. I'm so pleased with the outcome, I have a wrecker buddy watching for a Hemi setup for the wife's Wagoneer.

Ok, got lug nuts and got time to mount them. I'm liking the look.

I like the boots on the driveshaft. Is that stock? Mine doesn't have them.

I wanna say yes the boot is stock. The truck was well cared for and had all the bells and whistles for the day. I had it lengthened, but the guy I use is top notch.



Thanks for the compliments, I think I finally found the perfect rim for her. The tires are still questionable.

I bought them for $100 off marketplace,. A guy on the other site said he believes they are an 80s-90s American Racing rim. I will get more when I have them off again. Which will be soon, I didn't get enough AF in them and the bounce. They feel like they have a very soft sidewall. They claim to be 10 ply.

I assume you have extra rear x-members, but if not I have one already removed (from a 65 J300). Pretty simple to make one out of 2 pieces of plate and some gas pipe though..




Yeah, I love those rims too. Been looking for some for my J truck. Came with some "cool" racing rims..., awful!

They fit the truck perfect I've been searching for something just like them. If I could find a set like those I would snag em fast! If you look on the back side of the wheels the manufacturer, size, and possibly back spacing info should be embossed or stamped into the wheel. Keep us updated on how it goes.
