Worked on getting the intercooler mounted this weekend and the radiator will have brackets that will come off the same tube. Still need to make little gussets and mount a few other things to the fenders which I think I should be able to have done by Wednesday night hopefully.
Finally got the radiator mounted up. It's mounted on the same one inch tube that the intercooler is mounted on.
I broke down and ordered a aftermarket steering column. After looking closely at mine I decided not to use it. I went with a Flaming River stubby. It's only like 17 inches long so only the steering shaft will go through the firewall which will also keep me plenty of distance away from the exhaust/turbo. I don't know what the next thing I'm going to focus on. might just stay on the front and start making the wheel wells. I got parts for the shifters on the way soon too.
How's it going everybody? So back in November I purchased a 98 Chevy K3500 Crew Cab that had a 4BT swap already done to it.
The truck originally came from TX (don't know if the swap was done there or not) so the body was rust free. Being from New England it's a rare find to have no rust...
Here's the DeScrambler
Here is a brief overview of what I'm doing. Diesel Powered Jeep Scrambler, built from scratch. How's that for brief?
I could never have found what I wanted in the real world because nobody makes a diesel powered Jeep, it doesn't exist, so I felt I must build it. It's...
I'm getting ready to start on my 4bt into a 88 Wrangler YJ Build. I bought a pretty much rust free YJ with a new 4" spring lift (still under) and 33" tires. It has 3.08 gears, which seems to put me right in the sweet spot for cruising rpms.
I also have purchased a running driving step van...
