Sorry to hear about your dad. What are you doing with all your donor trucks? I'd like to get that cab off the 2wd bed-donor truck.

All my donors get stripped of any good parts and i sell the rest. I already sold the truck the bed came off of.



So i got the hubs rebuilt for the rear and calipers on and it mounted along with my overloads. Also got my fuel tank today. Welded in the bung for the return line and put a couple coats of acid etch primer on it and ill prime and paint it tomorrow.

I might still have to put a 3" block on the rear before its all said and done with.

Ok all you cork snugglers i finally had time to go get a new memory card for the camera. Not alot of pics because most of what i got done fits into the engine pics. Anyhow. Other than the alternator and belt the motor is done. Trans crossmember is in along with the trans. Still working on the transfer setup. Heres a couple pics of the motor. Note the shiny importish turbo elbow. Stock pull offs on ebay were $80-100 plus shipping. Guy in vegas had this for $40 shipped. Im not a big fan but it was in my price range.





So heres the trans xmember. I solid mounted the trans to the xmember and bushing mounted it to the frame. Also had to do a cutout for front dshaft placement.





Also tucked up real nice. Only got about 1" hanging below the frame.



Heres a pic of how it sets now. Waiting on new windshield gasket to get here.



And heres a couple paintjob pics

Got a little more done. Downpipe is in along with the tcase side mount. Also got the tcase shifter done. Cab is back where it needs to be. I still have to do a little floor work for the tcase shifter. Looks like ill need some heat wrap for the downpipe.

So heres the throttle setup. Pedal is from a 88-96 chebby truck and the cable is from a 70s f-series with a 300 I-6. Also took the plastic crap linkage off the pump and made this from heims.








So as far as the radiator goes. I modified the stock rad cradle to fit the 93 dodge radiator. Heres the lower plate and the uppers i made. Uses the stock cummins rad hoses





Lower IC mounts.



Random turbo shot and small glimpse of how i loomed the wires.

Ok so ive got this thing together and took it for a drive today. Ive got a couple of problems i need advice on. Both are suspension and steering related. Ive got real bad bump steer and some death wobble. Ive already been told to put a trac bar on it even though it has leaves. Would that be my best option? And with the bump steer i have crossover and highsteer so i thought that shouldnt be a problem. But it shakes pretty hard.

How are your kingpins? And if you Havnt yet,put a couple 1/8 thick washers under kingpin caps. Make sure all suspension bushings are new and maybe even rubber cab mounts. O and tires. That might be your biggest issue. Make sure they are properly balanced. I'd start there as most stuff is new anyway I'm guessing.

Everything in the front is new including the springs. Cab bushings are new poly. Tthe highsteer arms are the springless ones and are adjusted as tight as i can get them.

So the front springs are moving side to side a quite a bit so it looks like a trac bar is needed. What about this kit? Get the inside mount frame bracket and the centered axle bracket. Mount the axle side to the pass side spring plate. Also with this being a leaf sprung truck does the trac bar need to be parallel with the drag link the same as a coil sprung truck?

Is there a reason you have both the high steer and the factory tie rods in place?

I guess i should update this a little bit. I ended up using a cut down factory bed. Took 12" out of the front of it. Also built a rear bumper and ive started on the front.
