View Full Version : Changed Everything...

So I just got bored... show some "Progress" on how 1 thing just leads to another... Which this is all within the past year. First I froze the motor (tbi 350) over the winter, So that lead to a new motor, rolled it just after may long now I gotta change the cab, figured hey the cabs off i might as well upgrade the tranny from a 700r4 and np231 to a 2wd turbo 400 and 203/205 combo in which is a divorced ford 205 (twinsticked) machined and mated to a chevy 203. Since I was upgrading everything might as well upgrade the cab too and throw on a cut off 4dr blazer body. Since it was a beauty cab i figured i'd better protect er with some tube, and started a roll cage for it and added a fuel cell, oh but all this extra weight i better upgrade my diffs from fully built dana 44 and ford 9" (5.13's chromolys hi-steer spool and tru-track) to a dana 60 (behind axle hi-steer, 5.38s, full rebuild, welded, 35 spline drive slugs and radius arms, with coil-overs and a 10.25 sterling (4link with ori struts, welded, full rebuild.) Oh ok... sounds good, oh no tires are too small now, gotta upgrade from 40" tsls + beadlocks to 44's. and the last picture is where i'm at. Still have not drove it since i rolled it last year... Sad Story.
