I know it's a bit of a bump, but got some updates:

So when I got the thing home, we tried to see if we could get her to turn over. Threw a battery in, and she turned over but wasn't getting spark. It had one of those "lumination" ignition systems in it, which I suppose are known for not being hugely reliable. So after about 2 days of chasing wires and getting agrivated, I decided to just get a Buick 215 HEI distributor and be done with it. Threw it it, starts up and runs great!

Next in the list, there are a couple spots on the rear x-member needing fixing. Oh, and seats, I guess those are important too.

Never really did the math to be honest... I know of a few people with the xml's on their 101's, and they seem to do fine. It moves around the yard fine. The tires are only about a 2-3" difference from stock anyway, and still has the stock 5.57 axle gears so I can't foresee them being much of a problem

It is a pretty cool truck though.

Lol, it was an old jeep bumper, I just had no where to put it so I stuck it up there. The iron-mongery on the front will be coming off at some point I think

I'd like to do winter romp if I can get her on the road in time!

But in the meantime, have another pic!

May have, I've been poking around quite a bit. I'm terrible with putting a truck to a face though

It's a turbo diesel with an R380, RHD, on 40s. It's hard to miss, and driving it was one of the sketchier experiences I've had

Winter? It's been 60 and clear and sunny 80% of this winter. Why do you have all that foam on the FC?
