I'm not that far south of you and I really really want to see your truck. Perhaps an Orlando HH?

Just read this thread front to back. Really impressive stuff.

Reading through the pages game me a feeling I haven't felt since reading the book Into Thin Air. A few pages in I was thinking "OH MAN! I HAVE TO DO THIS!" By the time I was 2/3 into it I was thinking "YOU"D HAVE TO BE BAT SHIT CRAZY TO DO THIS!"

Great job and thank you very much for sharing your adventure.

Definitely! I keep waiting for someone to set one up. Better hurry because once I start the engine/tranny swap she will be out of commission for a few months.

Thanks! I documented everything here so others can enjoy my adventure, and to also ask for advice from others who have much more experience than me. I am just one person, not a shop. I often ask myself if I would ever do it again. It was a very rewarding experience and now I totally regret selling my Series III SWB. I would have done the same thing with my Series if I still had it

751 springs and N115 shocks for the front because I have a winch bumper with winch and spare on the bonnet. 755 springs and N44 shocks for the rears. I have the oddball 8.25x16, roughly 34 inches.

Agree. It's a great definition of a 110.

He has done a lot of things I would on a 5 door SW build. Full interior cage, galvy sliders, wheels/tire, bumper/winch/skid. I love the green with cream top combo especially with the galvy bits.

You'll see lots of thinking out loud and direction changes as these guys guide me in the right direction (like that HMMWV tire carrier ). A lot of blood, sweat, and tears went into this truck. I see you taking your Series apart right after getting it home. Do you have any specific plans for it? I would take the advice of some of the senior members here. They know what they are talking about and have helped me tremendously.

Hey! Yes only on pg 10 and I could already see the advice you were being given. Which is why I'm re-reading. Ren was so funny..blunt. I would rather that than make an uniformed mistake. The carrier.. the bulk head. I have to keep reading to see how it turned out!! The suspense. I haven't had much time to play with her over the past few days but I'm off tomorrow. Whenever I get my grimy clothes on and start walking over..I get a grin on my face. There is nothing like doing your own. I have no concrete plans yet, still finding out what major/structural things need to be dealt with. I did notice one of the front swivels is in bad shape (rust)..don't know yet if it's just the seal or has gotten to the housing rim and can that be ground down? will it then leak? Leaf springs look like heck.. so replace with new or go with coils? Replace the axles entirely..disc brakes, power steering? What about turning radius, lift and how much articulation do I want? I'll be in the sunshine tomorrow, blasting tunes and getting greasy. I've started to take off the steering arms and am working on the tub...have to get to those rusted out cross members. I'll take some pictures and post them tomorrow

I would do parabolics. That was the plan for my Series SWB but I sold it in a moment of weakness. If you do coils you will need a new chassis. If that is your route I would just get a new galvanized frame. See this awesome thread

Thank you Forrest..I feel comfy and welcome.

Yes, parabolics is what I was thinking too. That's the trick... once you change one thing you then have to change something else. I'm wanting to keep this to a minimum. Maximize her potential and stay as close to original as possible. I am struggling with the idea of even painting her anymore. She is so classic and cool looking with all her age and charm. I took the seat box out and am drawing up some stuff for slide-out under seat storage. Going to take the bulkhead, seat box and a few other things to David tomorrow and we can discuss it then. I'm just cleaning and taking inventory. She is filthy!! and omg the bolts on the underside are so much worse than those on the top. Breaker bar, hammer, gear pullers and patience. Breaking a joint or a nut loose has become euphoric! ...'Drink please' lol This truck is the first one that I will know like the back of my hand because I will have touched and made like new every last piece - I find this SO cool! The documentation you have of your rebuild is so good I can almost do my shopping list from it... right on! Such a pretty girl you have.. you can't sell her and if you do you have to be 97 years old

An angle grinder with a cut-off disc was my best friend. I had to cut or grind off a lot of rusted nuts and bolts. I went through 2 grinders! You could get this but what's the point? I replaced every single nut and bolt anyway and it was faster to just grind/cut it off. All up just the hardware cost me around $600-700, I can't remember the exact number. After you charge the first $300 just for nuts and bolts, it doesn't even phase you anymore when you order hard to find parts over seas.

I have no plan of ever selling this truck. It is for my daughter when she grows up. The one you see hanging on the "monkey bars".
