Still a bit tenative,
1983 rolling chassis is done deal. Thanks Ron
Currently a 2.5 TD so it's an easy 200tdi swap.

Late Model 110 crew cab is just about done.

So far I have the boosts, and the LHD windshield wipers. (pics to come)
Need a 200tdi and LHD parts? Anyone?

Subscribe! Was thinking of doing the same myself awhile back when I first started. I'm glad someone here is doing it. Lots of pics please.

Frame was cut and parts of it left just to hold the body together, drivetrain, axles, etc are gone, its pretty much everything north of the frame

change the pluses to sweat, tears, busted knuckles, grease and profanity and you will get your desired outcome :)

The kids are awesome, but I do a lot of work myself as well.
Thanks for the advice and keep it coming, I do realize my equation is oversimplified. I shoud have used a couple of varibles in there! Some X's andY's maybe even some Z's
I'll try and get my 10 year austistic math savant in my summer school class to draw something up! No joke, he will do it, he was just helping me with my 50:1 ratio in my 2.8 gal outboard gas tank. 5-7/25 ounces of oil per tank.
No more guessing at the pump, and the engine may survive the summer.

Its almost Done!

All the important parts are here! Boosts and bumpers.

I have to go pick up the Chassis this weekend, I hope. It's up to Earl.

200tdi is in the works. So the 2.5 TD will be going.

Pics of my new Shop DOG!

Yesterday I actually put a 235-85-16 on the hood of my 90 and I didn't really like it.

She's my second Ridgeback, I adopted her in June, shes awesome, its amazing how much like my first one she is.
I had my first one Haley for 12+ years.

The winch cover makes the truck, I may keep it! (kidding)
So far it the only thing with the LR logo!
