Mark will correct if wrong but you'll need to use a Sandon mounted with his brackets to clear the steering box. There is a pic in the early, early part of this thread.

All:

What's the best option for a radiator with the LC9 engine? Nick's? Or the Allisport? Mine is in need of replacement so I want to make sure I get the best one for the job.

Thanks,

Paul.

I suggest you go with Nicks, you'll not get the Alisport rad in with the fan shroud, I moved my engine back 1" to allow for it.

No worries, just so everyone reading is clear I already had the Allisport rad for the 3.9 that was in my truck and as I needed to move the t'case mounts back to accomodate the crawler box, moving the engine mounts back 1" wasn't a big deal. Have posted a couple of pics of the rad hoses I used in the Gen III thread for info.

69 pages. Does anybody know if there is a website for rover works or how to get in contact with Nick's shop? This thread is impossible to follow.

Nick, I'll take it no questions asked. Talk next week after I've got the truck home. Need to do the deal on the diagnostic tool anyway.

Neat... And you also need to make a wide brake pedal converter plate as well as a robust 'dead' pedal... Not that your slacking.....

Andy, Ashcroft seems to have the wider brake pedal and dead pedal covered. I placed the order and will have them this week. Nick needs to focus on the strut kit, body control module and paddle shifters for momo wheels to go with tap up/down.

Ok, here is the scoop on the Lokar pedals. The one pictured is the old style, DBW-GM01. Which is compatible with my pedal adapter.

The current one (all billet) is BDBW-GM01.

The older ones are still in limited stock at various distributors. At least you can determine which one you are getting based on the part number.

This forum needs a re-org. LS swap should have it's own sub section instead of a single thread.

Hood strut looks simple and straight forward. Will that work in conjunction with the NAS air cleaner bracket?

Also, after having done a couple of these swaps with Nick's components I'm pretty familiar with the process. I know he's a tough guy to get a hold of at times, so if anyone needs technical advice or a sounding board I'm happy to assist where possible.

I also think it needs a Interior/Exterior, Lighting/Electrical, Wheels/Tires, Engine, Brakes/Steering/Suspension, Transmission, Service/Maintenance, Custom Fabrication, Parts reviews sections broken out

A little on-topic motivation for those of you out there considering the conversion. I just did 1,000 miles on my latest build, most of which were highway. The truck just lugs right along at speed.
