Awww....Come on, use your imagination.
The S10 frame/body for sure...
It's thicker and fully boxed. Just gonna swap all my current drivetrain into this thing. It'll be nice to have a roof over my head again.
You gonna do something like Rob's?
Anymore pictures of that thing?
No need to sell me on the S10 frame/body, glad to hear someone else is going the S10 route Yield2Me and I have gone.
Oh and that white 4 dr belongs to Yield2Me.
Its got rockies and rear steer.
What coils are you running out back?
thats ok... me likey
I just got a toyota frame..
uh oh more projects lol
V8 ZJ coils. AS of this second I think they are too soft. If I open the door and stand on the door sill, the truck leans a good 2" to that side, and I only weight about 155lbs. I am gonna put it all together, fab up the shock mounts(none on now) and give it a try as is. Probably end up with F150 coils though(which I believe is what Yield2Me has on his rig.
Whats your wheelbase? And how are you doing your steering? Are you using the S10 box? Or full hydro? Or????
114.5 or 115, I forget. Front axle is forward I believe about 10" and the rear is back about 4 or 5 I think.
If I had it to do again I'd at least put a radius arm setup up front instead of leaf springs, and I haven't even hit the trail yet. I'm sure the 52s will work nicely but I forsee a link setup shortly down the road.
what is going to happen to the truggy then??????
See........now your thinking about linking the rear. You know you want to.
Everything will get swapped over- Engine, tranny, doubler, axles etc. The rest will get cut up and junked. I'll prolly try to salvage as much f the tube as I can for the S10. Otherwise it's to the scrap yard for the remains.
Of course I want to one day...If I decide to do that, It'll never make it to blazer fest.
cant you just sell the tube body? or give it away?
I guess I could. Would be body/frame though. It's all tied together.
