BTW Pendy, you owe me now
Yes, yes I do, Yousef.

So I am picking up Mike Pado's at the TNLR event. You should make a run at Jim C's.

And maybe this latest request can be met with Gregs info, crobinson can chase one of the other two.


Jim Cheney. I can either make some parts or cut a couple off for you. I would be glad to help on this one. You will have to cut on your frame as well. Maybe I should take some pics if you or someone will post them somewhere.

Hey Pendy - when you say "cut on your frame as well" are you talking about the anti-roll bar mounts on the 300 chassis? I noticed they would be in the way, but is there something else I missed?

Either cut-offs or fabricated, I would really appreciate the help - thx.

As discussed with Greg H when he was tackling his. The rear crossmember interferes with the fuel tank. But modifications can be made. I will take some shots today and get Mike to post up.

Pendy, Yousef and Others,

As Greg said, I have a NAS frame, and it comes with Rovertym Heim-jointed rear links. Currently, my truck is all together, but I could start tearing it down tonight if you want the frame. I know that would make Greg happy. Let me know. E-mail or call (781) 576-9171.

Sincerely,
Chris Kearney

Pendy-
I really appreciate you taking all those pix - let me see if it have it all straight:

Here is a picture of my tdi frame, clearly the swaybar mounts at arrow 1 have to go, they are simply in the way.

Now I notice my chassis has a flange not present on the pix you showed of the NAS chassis - is this the part of the crossmember that interferes with the tank? If so I'm guessing that this will simply require trimming back for clearance?

Thanks!

Thank Mike for posting the pics. I need to teach myself to post pics online still.

Yes, you need to cut back the flang on the rear crossmember. If you are real good you can cut the flang a little wide and then bend it backwards. it could still serve its purpse as a gusset that way.

I am not convinced you should cut the sway bar mounts. As on the NAS trucks the gas tank skid plate is the sway bar mounting surface. But the tank still fits in between the frame rails. And the neck goes over the top of the frame. You need to test fit the tank to your frame. If this works you may not be able to remove your tank after assembling. At least downwards. It may have to come in from the top. An access through the cab floor, for the fuel pickup, may be needed.

I would not want to cut on galvanizing and/or welding if not needed. Why not a fancy skidplate that uses your swaybar mounts. And possibly turns and bolts to the frame again as well as contains the fuel tank. You can have the galvanizing removed at a facility and then reapplied after your changes as well. But I would try to work with what I had if it were me.

Of course you could load it all in a tailer and drop it by sometime. I could give Yousef his frame when everything is where it needs to be and motoring about with its new heart.

Yeah, I think I like your idea of the fancy skid-plate/tank mount/NAS bumber support. Plus it would be so much simpler as a bolt-on arrangement.

I appears that the 300Tdi sway mounts are not in exactly the same location as the NAS ones, but your solution still sounds simpler.

I'm trying to do all this planning in advance so that I can minimize rover downtime, beucase I still drive the 90. I just need to chill.
