It's been a while so I'll post up.

I shortened the WB from my 130" stretch to 112". (Factory was about 126")

Ditched the stock gas tank for a 33gal tank from a FSB.
Spliced some wires and drilled some holes and am using the FSB fuel sending unit, ranger high flow electric pump, and canister system from the ranger.

Tuned the rear suspension in the process, now only running a 2" block. Have yet to measure the travel but she flexes well.

Built a custom bed out of 1.75" OD square with .120 wall. Fenders and shiz done with diamond plate alum. rivited on. Spare tire carrier across the top of the bed.

Cantilever shock system. Does well on the road, yet to use it off road. Kind of worried cause it's only single sheer, ish, but eh, I'll see. I like cheap shocks.

Um, what else, lost about 36" of frame, or close to that. Waiting to build a new rear bumper.

Uh, switched to a 1350 yoke on the drive shaft when I blew up the ears, now running a 1350-1330 conversion to the nine".

Finally wired up my lights to a rocker switch sitting in my amo box center councile.

Fried the rings. Got 100psi on a compression test, then 150psi after adding oil. Cylinder 5 just ejaculated oil into my guage.

Rather then rebuild the 3.0 with it's shitty lack of torque and upgrades, she's gettin a new heart.

Still runnin down options, either a 302 stroked to a 347, a 351w stroked to a 407 or 427, or a Chevy 4.3 or 350.

Gonna try and squeeze in a divorced t-case after the married T case of what ever combo I end up using. Somethin beef like a cast gear driven 205.

I've got my reasons for goin chevy, because chevy 60s are soooo much cheaper then a driver drop 60, and they're cheap, and can be built to the tits. And I've got a 700r4 hangin around.

Here's some shots of a lill flex test. Hard core, I know.
