Santana 200tdi hybrid build

So I am slowly starting my hybrid build. I am using a 94 Range Rover LWB frame.





Yesterday I started step one by removing the body, I also removed the body off a second LWB for my buddy so he could start a similar project. 1 day down many to go.

Cool project. For some reason the LWB body on stilts reminds me of my home planet:

That was my first thought when I saw the body up on the 'stilts'.

I like the way it can walk from the garage then park itself outside

The body in the garage was cut up into managable pieces, the one outside is the second one of the day.

So project is on hold for a couple of months, the wife let me order a brand new 110 chassis from Northwest Defenders. Plus the fact that I tore my ACL in half and and my MCL so I am getting surgery in July



I did install a new heater from Summit, it bolted right up to blower box. The tape is a termporary seal. I make it cleaner when I swap bulkheads.

Have the part number on that heater? Looks good. Improvement over stock?

It honestly puts out 3x times the air. I had a Santana heater before so i might not just bolt up to a series box. Part # is SUM-991102-1. I was torn between this and the bigger one SUM-991106

Jeeez! You are really going to town on that. What are those seats from they look very comfy! It's me from Bring a Trailer. I left a message for you on the other site for you but you didn't reply. I found this site accidentally through all the snatched Defender furor. Let me know if I can help with anything.

Could you post some photos of the drivetrain removed from the truck? I know it won't look like much but I am pipe dream engineering a 200Tdi/Santana LT85/LT230 into my Series III.

Got the bed painted and started to tear down the motor, but I am still waiting on my frame. I am now leaving Alaska in November, so I need to get it in gear soon.

Tore into my lt230 tonight and verified it actually has selectable 2wd and 2 hi. From the looks of it Santana did not install a limited slip style main shaft but instead they put a solid shaft in like a spool.
