My junk, Goldie-Lox

Had to have a name. This fits

http://www.urbandictionary.com/defin...x&defid=343191

Specs are : '62 3b with, eewww (comp cut fenders), '95 4.3 cpi injected, Np435, re-geared Dana 20 (2.46:1), 5.38's, Detroit rear, ARB front (hence the name), Scout 44's, rolling on garbage 16.5 military's right this second (for mock-up), will be running 37's. 14" Fox airshox at all four. 3 link front, 4 link rear. Warn 8274-50, blah blah

I did most of this in a single entry basement door (I don't have a vehicle-sized door), so I had to take it in piece by piece, and remove it. It was in there for three years or so. Pretty excited to get it back out and get it this far.

Don't worry, the tub should have been scrapped, the floors were gone. It was this or a side-by-side. Easy choice for me. My grand-dad left it to me as a stocker, it has always been in the family and was purchased with a bag of silver dollars in '62.

Should be able to make some headway now that it's free from the underworld... Engine/trans/x-fer have already been fitted, sliders are cut to size. Need to bend some shock hoops for front and rear, and burn in everything you see. Add a cage and another couple of hundred hours...

Not really anything special here. This is a Scout Dana 20 with my Dana 18 levers. The Scout shift rails were welded up and ground to accept the 18 levers. They sit perfect in the Scout bracket.

The 18 also donated its gears to give me a 2.46:1 ratio. Cheap mod for those wanting to run a centered rear diff..

Thanks W4x4, yep, good eye Fred, Scout box.

Here is the Novak Np435 to Dana 20 adapter. I have already swapped the output shafts, transmission was really clean on the inside. I replaced the small plastic "sliders" on the shift forks because they were old/brittle. Thats a bell housing off of a SM465 on the front with a Novak front bearing retainer.

12" Chev. pressure plate and a Ford 11" disk. I had an NP 435, and a SM465, hell if I know why I used the NP. It was cleaner internally and a little smaller dimension wise. The 465 looked like a pig in the frame rails.

I've got to make a bracket for the 435 as seen from this angle to tie in the right lower ear

The Dana 20 bolted to the NP435. Appears snug at the transfer case levers, but they don't contact each other.

G2 5.38's, Detroit (rear), ARB (front). The G2 gear install kits come with U.S. made Timkens. Happy about that! Anyone have any experience with G2?

Final assembly of the engine/transmission/transfer case. Wire harness has been "weeded" and inline resistors added to simulate the values of the missing 4l60e transmission solenoids. Novak slave cylinder is seen in this photo also. Crappy cell pic

I had already sat the engine in the frame before I rolled it out of the basement. I also ground off the outer "C"'s, corrected the caster angle, and changed the front pinion angle years ago (literally. this has been going on since '06)

I used a lot of Ballistic tabs/brackets, not because I can't cut my own, but time is money, and it works better for me to just buy them. and wait. At the rate I'm going, I should be able to go wheelin' in 2015

Picked up a JD2 notcher along the way. Awesome tool.

Picked up a 8274-50 off of craigslist, and bought a TMR mount for it.

I cut the top of of the '95 donor fuel tank and grafted it into the stock tank (I added a small sump for the fuel pump in the tank as well)

My buddy gave me the hydroboost out of a CUCV, and the p/s pump. The p/s pump bolted right into the vortec front bracket. I used a puller and removed the single belt pulley and the serpentine belt pulley went right back on.

Bought 4 - 14" Fox airshox back in '07. And last, I had originally bought this PSC ram for my John Deere. It didn't fit. dern.

Not much progress that can be seen. Got the link brackets burned in. I had to re-do the rear upper links and make them an inch longer to gain a better pinion angle.

I also had to move the front right lower link bracket (on the axle) in a full inch so that the brake caliper would quit becoming the steering stop. The Scout axle is really tight on space on the pass side.

Also got the winch mount installed, I am going to add a 3/16 plate under it as a base plate, and tie it into the frame

Just started to get into the re-gearing part of this build. Here are some pics of the front axle and its link tabs, old gears (3.07's) and new ones (5.38's). This might take a while. I've been doing all the reading I can on gear set-ups. We'll see how this goes.

As I mentioned before, I had already corrected the caster angle by cutting the outer "C"s loose and turning them. I also flipped the tie rod to the top and reamed the existing tie rod holes in the knuckles to accept the flipped tie rod.

These photos are current as of today, frame flipped upside down. Brackets burned in, engine mounts in place, transmission mount/skid section is removable (will be plated to become a skid) frame is sleeved. Center section bolts in with 12 bolts. Lots of thanks to TVGUY for the help on this!

With a long way to go still, but a lot behind me, her are some updated photos of the progress. I still have to pull the tub off one more time for prep and paint. Still have to bend up a cage, mount seats, complete steering, brakes, electrical and fuel systems. ...But it's starting to look like something. Airshocks are mounted, but empty, hence the blocks. Front "hoop" is a cantilever design, 1 1/2" x .250 wall dom. There is no way its going to bend in that short of a distance.

And the rear... Most all of the brackets and tabs came from Ballistic, before things got ugly. The rear truss/cover is BTF, Ballistic didn't have one for a 44 at that particular time. I never had an issue with Ballistic btw, they always came through.

Thanks Alien!

No updates in a while, but here we are. FINALLY gassed up the Fox 2.0's and got it standing on its own.

Had a buddy bend the NP 435 shifter over to the right with some heat

Painted the tub, and ran back through the wiring one more time, fired it up just to hear it run for a second.

Ran the air line to the ARB in the front.

I'm now working on doubling the firewall panels with some 12ga to support the brake/clutch pedal set, and the ARB compressor on the right firewall

I have a cage planned out, it is in the near future.

I wanted to keep the dash simple, no aftermarket gauges. The idiot lights are good enough. I found a couple of decals for the shift pattern of the 435 and twin stick 20, they may help another driver at some point. ARB switches cut into the center of dash.
