I am dying to know how the 4.6 does in a 110. I am really thinking about swapping one in for my 4.0.

So just to clarify were you able to reuse the orig axle shafts or were they to short after the conversion to discs? I promise I will stop asking about the rear axle soon!

Later.

The 4.6 is nice in a 110, if it's in front of a 5 speed. If you're truck has an auto conversion, it's so-so....just my .02
I think that all auto's kill any performance in a 90 or 110.

Thanks for the good words everyone.

I'm getting an r380 and a 1.2 t-case, and I'm also really curious to see how it all does in the 110. I still need to get the right computer set-up to get everything optimized, but that's a bit down the road.

Plans for the inside are to get rid of all the grey color. The new style door cards are all black and I'll get rid of the carpet and use rubber mats and line-x for the tub, but I'm not going overboard with that stuff. I'm planning on putting in the Melville and Moon canvas seat covers since the canvas should look good with the exterior color. I've got a new-style bulkhead, so its a good time to switch to the new-style dash. I"m thinking about painting the window trims a light tan color so the inside will just be black and tan.

And Tyler - I used the original axles shafts - they're fine.

Tyler - to clarify this, you use the same stub axles, so nothing changes in the distance from the diff to the drive flange. Literally all that happen in this conversion is you get hubs that have holes for a disc, and you bolt a caliper bracket to the axle flange instead of the drum brake backing plate. I've got a ton of pix, I'll post them when I can.

Damn Jim, your 110 looks great... If the Army doesn't work out maybe you could work with Fidel.

Post more pics when you can.

Here are some from last weekend.

After galvanizing the bulkhead, replacing the outriggers and galvanizing the chassis, the holes were only off by a fraction of an inch, so I was pretty happy. A quick squeeze with a clamp and the bolt slid right through the hole.

There's a shot of the gas tank blasted and coated in the now-ubiquitous zinc-rich primer. I'll shoot it black with Rustoleum before I install it.

And lastly is a pic of the t-supports on. Looks like mine were damaged in shipping, so I'm going to have a little extra hassle installing them, but overall, the body lines are lining up well. We'll see if I remain this luck when its time to adjust the door gaps.

Next step is finish prepping the tub and get it out for paint.

So what's the process Jim? You test fit it all, then disassemble, paint and re-assemble? Did you just want to make sure you didn't have any issues before doing another paint run?

Pretty much. I just wanted to make sure I didn't have any major fit issues before I fully committed to the paint. I didn't test fit the body between fixing the rear crossmember and replacing the bulkhead outriggers, so I kind of skipped a step there since I ran out of time.

Ok makes sense. I forgot about the frame changes - I was thinking the tub came right off that truck so why would it need test fitting

Looking good btw.

Don't forget shim, shim, shim don't bend bend bend.

Make sure you put the washed on the big bulkhead bolts in the right places too.

The bulkhead is really the only part that does not have any fudge room (other than washers), the rest you can really make up for the gaps with adjustments and washers/shims.
