    well K5redneck has my chassis and frame now, so after towing it over to out friend Joe's the caos started...



    Last night we started at about 7 with loading up the engin puller, drive 25 minutes and realize we for got the tools /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif


    So we finally get started..first undid everything and pulled the motor from the 83, then pushed the 75 chassis up to it, installed the motor..

    Then removed the dana 60 off the 75, and pulled the d-44 from the 83 and installed it and the springs in the 75. The pulled the rear axel from the 75 and from the 83 then installed the 83 14 bolt into the 75..Also removed the sway bar and trimmed the u-bolts.. /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif

    The about 2 am we decide to keep going.. So we pulled my steering box, shaft and lines and steering colum out of the 75. The pulled his crap out, then installed it all.

    The we ran the front steel braded break lines and pulled the brake booster, and MC from the 83 and from the 75 and reinstalled it on the 75 cab..


    Next was swapping in the wiring harness and mounting up the hoses and throttle linkage and pedels, and wired the colum and engin up. Then installed the battery and battery cables and engin ground wire....even wired up the winshild wipers /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    all thats left is installing the tranny and t-case on tuesday night when we pick it up, then do a quick hacking on some drive shafts and go wheeling after mounting the 38's..

    all this and then had to load up the 1 tons with tires and rims on, plus 4 leaf packs, two tool boxes, all steering and break parts, a high lift, race seat and a engin picker into the truck then drive home and unload the axels..we finished a 9:30 am... /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    looooong night but alot done /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    not an uncommon occurance for those of us who are dedicated enough. about a month ago i pulled an all nighter with a friend of mine. we started with literally a pile of parts (engine torn apart, trans and clutch torn apart, cooling, exhaust) at 7pm Friday, and by 3pm Saturday she was racing it.

    The 75's drivetrain will be in a another Shawn project , which will be towed to the trail by another Shawn project . So Dave had to use the 83's drivetrain to make the 75 good for him . I am going to surprise everyone later with the 83 sporting half ton stuff ( since I have a boatload of spares and wheel soft ) /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    no can do, I have a long road ahead for a project on my hands and I will need them, should be a good while before I wheel though. Unless I take out the 86, but that is a dd, not a wheeling rig.

    I dunno, sounds like a bad idea, lockers may temp me though, I want to keep it nice and in great condition as well as running good so if I want to get rid of it it does not need work.. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif


    Get a locker, sounds fun /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
