Very neat.....I'm envious...partly over the speed of the build, mine's taking forever.
Are you going to fit some sort of wheel arch extensions or will you get away without?

Randy,

The truck looks awesome!!!! I have another question for you. What brake setup are you using on the bulkhead? please tell me which booster and pedal mount you are using. Did you have any interference with the booster and series hood using the D90 bulkhead?
Is that an R-380 transmission?
Before I bought my 90, I was building a coiler with a designa/ECR chassis. I sold my project because I thought I was trying to make a series truck a 90. Anyways, I sold the 90 and I am beginning to start tearing down my 88. I am thinking again about going this route.

Its a standard late IIa-III booster setup. bolts right to the d-90 bulkhead. No mods. ITs also an LT-77s onto an LT-230 t-case.

Its going to be a great little rig.... I wish tere was more leg room like the 90 though. I am tempted to take out the bulkhead behind the seat since I am running d-90 seats anyway. I hate to do that to the tub but it would make a lot more room. Has anyone ever done that before on a series?


I have driven it around already and it really moves. Does not feel like your standard sluggish series truck for sure..

I am pretty sure that I saw someone use a modified bar from a 109" station wagon and put it in place of the rear bulkhead on a 88".

You could try a bulkhead removal bar and seat rails from Mud UK

I read back and am a little confused, you useing a series tcase or LT230? Is the rear output moved back a bit with the lt77 in there? Since my OD is toast I am thinking of doing an LT77 but my rear shaft is at max angle now and if the rear output moves back than I am looking at a double double CV shaft to make things work.

I know he is going to be working on something like that but with a 300tdi.

I was thinking that keeping it all in the D1 family might keep it relatively affordable...

No reason it could not be done.

I have seen it done a couple different ways.

1. The cleanest was to cut the bulkhead down shorter and remake the galv capping piece.
crappy ASCI art

\__/

So the horizontal bit was maybe 6" above the tub floor. the sides were probably a 60*-70* angle.

2. On my tub I totally removed the bulkhead. I have a full interior cage. The B hoop has tabs that go and bolt to the cappings on the tub sides. No flex or movement when closing the doors. Worked out well.
I have moved my seat back 3-4 inches. made up a new mount for the sliders. The passenger seat was moved back 2. Can't go further due to the fuel neck.

3. Totally removed and then use a 90 type stiffening bar.

4. A 109 3-door tub is deeper behind the seats then an 88. I have seen where someone uses a 109 tub, cut the back end off, and 88 sides.

On my current build I am using the modifed 109 tub, but I am thinking about modifying the tub as in #1

You can also use a 109 bulkhead and cappings on an 88 tub.

I would just pull the bulkhead out of there (if you do it cleanly you could always put it back in). and put in a NAS style bar between the seats.

Randy,

I removed most of the bulkhead on my tub and don't use any bar. If you look at each end of the bulkhead you will see a lot of bends, and if left on will give plenty of strength. Give me a call and I can go into it at length. I also moved the driver seat 2" in towards the center of the vehicle and then moved the tracks back 2". What a difference. I have Recaro seats in mine and like the snugness the bolsters offer. I will try to take some photos for you. Wasn't there something else that I was suppose to take photos of as well?

I've wheeled with a few of them. One was a direct transplant from a Range Rover Classic, the other was similar, but had a 4.6 replacing the old 3.5.

Both nice trucks though.
