Well, it is Tuesday,and you're Dakota is bad ass.... But why are you driving over the wagon in the first pic? I love those...

I'm not sure where the tech is in this thread. Maybe I'm too sick to care, or to be mean... But what is going on???

I'm hoping this is an intro to a build thread for the 4BT swap. If it's just a "Hey look, I can park on cars and I'm going to swap an engine sometime" post then I'll just have it deleted. Needs tech.

. im waiting for my 47RH tranny to get done. should have other parts in the mail this week. long story short i have everything or its on the way. if i missed anything i have the funds to buy it.

getting 4bt resealed painted. should have tranny by Friday.

need to rid my truck of the boat anchor 5.2.

should be painless as long as my four link setup isn't going to cause any clearance issues


oh and elwenil get the fuck off my thread you homo

Wish I was doing this to my Dakota. Needs a re-link and coilovers and better rear springs way before anything happens to the 318 other than better exhaust though.

I bet if you throw in your walker, and a couple cases of ensure, he might actually consider your offer.

Neat build.

Nah, I need my walker to make it back and forth from the shitter to the fridgeand I'd have to borrow $20 to pay him $100 so I don't think I can afford to give up any dietary supplements.

Check out Jennskennels build for a trans mount. I copied the one that was made for his truck to put a 47rh in my 93 to fix the front drive line problem and it works great. Need to know exactly where the trans will line up before you have it bent and the pieces cut so you don't have to make it twice

I think one on here does allow you to change the links to parallel instead of triangulated. I'll see if I can find it on my computer
