Brand new here. I'm interested in doing two swaps in work vehicles, both of which will need an engine soon anyway. One is a 1981 GMC 3500 2wd dually 5.7/manual and the other is a 1992 GMC Vandura G300 5.7/4L80 box van. I'd love to look at a conversion or two (particularly GM truck chassis) and talk a bit. I'll buy the :beer:

I'm in Littleton and looking to do a swap into a 1965 Land Rover. I've got a neighbor who is in the middle of doing a 4BT swap into an early 90s Dodge Ram. He posts here as "aspoonhour". I'd love to meet some other local folks that are running a 4BT under the hood.

Hello from Nathrop

I'm (hopefully) in the middle of a 4bt into a 1961 Dodge town wagon power wagon. Upgrading to 4 wheel disc brakes, power steering while in the process. Using the NV4500 and NP205 as well. Planning on running WVO in a second system too. Somehow these projects morph into much more, but now is the time to do it since the truck is in pieces anyway. Maybe the Colorado group should try for a meeting this summer?

I'll volunteer to host. I'll buy the first few cases of beer and some burgers. Then you're on your own.:beer:

I'm in Littleton...just a few miles south of Denver.

X2! Lets do this! The first week in June? Shhheyet. Maybe mine will be done by then! bounce Anyone have any words of advice?

PS I have a few wise words to anyone considering repowering in Colo......

DONT USE PROFFITTS Cruisers!!!! Seen their exhaust work, how they modify the factory shifter. The truck I saw would not even shift down into 1st gear. Garbage work if you ask me:puke:

Was there an actual M&G last year?

Anyone interested in doing one this year?

I haven't bought a 4BT yet and the truck it will be going in to is still in pieces, but would love to check out some other rides/installs.
