so this is a build I am doing for a friend... some series truck currently on a 95? RRC chassis... it came with everything to put it together including the whole wiring harness... but I am not going to use any of it...so it is getting a v8 swap with a "unknown" transmission mated to an np205. axles will be 1-tons.

as of right now we are stripping it down to the chassis... the truck came with stuff hanging off of it, tacked on or just held together with vice grips. so we have to start from there. it has a very solid chassis, the bulkhead looks like it was repaired... a lot.. but it will work.

if anyone wants a complete 3.9 w/tran/case/wiring harness. I am sure my friend will sell.

My D60/Sterling axles are almost done. I have 38" swampers, but they are too small.
SBC/700r4/NP231-231 doubler are in the shed.
Chassis fab and 3 link front 4 link rear suspension planned for this winter.

awesome!! is yours a 109 I forgot? how is that 700r4 going to fit? it looks massive to fit in an 88... that's why we are leaning towords the NP435 again. Would love to fit a 700r4 combo in if possible.

started to work on this a bit this weekend... found a mock up trash engine out back and bolted **** together and started to get stuff into position... started making custom motor mounts and plating frame rails where needed.







cant touch it for about a month now due to traveling =(((
