zjlarson New person checking in. Been a lurker for a few years, mostly here for the technical info and vendors. Licensed aircraft mechanic (part time side work now), and cnc programmer and maintenance at a sheet metal fabrication shop. Several vehicles but pertaining to this board, I have a 1988 V20 suburban, factory 465 4spd. Ton swapping it, and chopped the back off, more rust then solid sheet metal. Its a reliable working ol gal, so I kept it and am modding the shit out of it.

SonOfDilbert Ohla! New to the forum, mainly because of my recent purchase. A 1976 Plymouth Trailduster:

No stranger to off-roading, have an 04 Nissan Xterra that I turned into an overlander/trail rig but didn't really touch the drive train or axles. I want to get into wrenching and customization end of off-roading and restoration. Currently in the process of tearing down the Plymouth.

She's got a DANA 44 in the front, Chrysler 9 1/4 in the back and a 318 that one of the number of owners put in after blowing the original with a transfer case that doesn't shift to anything. So, I want to swap most of it. The motor, transmission (want a manual) and the transfer case.

All in all, I'm eager to learn, have at least welding, soldering, and mechanical knowledge I've picked up through my service and just general breaking shit till I figure out how it's supposed to work.

underatree Hey I'm a newbie here.I live about 30 miles south of st louis.I'm 31 years old and a sheet metal worker by trade.I have been into going four wheeling since I was a young kid.As my dad always went four wheeling in his jeeps and 4wd chevy trucks.

I use to frequent yellow bullet.com But I'm not liking what's going on there anymore.So I figured I would try out a new place.

I have a 1970 nova that a take to test and tunes every once in a while and it's fully street legal.Nothing crazy it runs low 8's in the 1/8th mile with a 355sbc/th400 combo.I also have a 69 c-10 that I converted to 4x4.It's powered by a 355 sbc/th400/np 205 with a 12 bolt rear and dana 44 front.I converted it to 4wd than realized I didn't want to tear it up going four wheeling.

So I got my 78 k10 that I pulled outta the woods.And have spent the last couple years getting here going.It's powered by a 2002 chevy 5.3 that's all stock.Backed up by th350/np203.Still stock gears but welded in the rear.

The truck was extremely rusty when I got it.I built new floorpans and cab supports for it.And changed the bed and front fenders.It's still not done.But I have some fun in it.

But obviously by this photo you can tell she has been getting stuck in the mud pit I dug out.So that brings me here and I hope you guys can help me in my quest of making this truck a badass 4x4!

Newb checking in!

Heard great things about this site...I have lurked from time to time. Thinking about getting into a build in the near future and doing some research. I have an 03 TACO, 2.5" suspension lift and rock armored up, but thinking the build should be an early to mid 80's 1st, 2nd, or 3rd Gen Toyota truck.

Newbie here

Hi, new here but been on 4x4 since I was born.
Now working on my RamCharger on setting it up with Dana 60īs and looking for tires maybe 38īs or 40īs.
Just a 4"lift but will cut out fenders to clear those meats. Too high is a no no.

Newbie Check-in

I am a newbie and will gladly admit it.I have drove some dirt roads and mud holes a bit, but nothing like you guys. I have a 1966 Ford Galaxie 500. It sits on a 1967 F-100 truck frame I shortened 11 3/4 inches with 1978 Bronco running gear. 4.11 gears with posi traction front and rear running 15x10 white wagon rims with Irock 39.5x13.5x.15 super swampers which need replacing. The engine was a stock '66 Galaxie 390 4bbl but now is board 40 over, balanced, valve job, heads all reworked, offy dual port intake with Holley 650 dual line, Msd ignition, hedman headers, Taylor wires. 325hp 435 torque. I'm 62 in a couple months, I have multiple Sclerorsis and the 8" lift makes it a bit difficult to get in the car sometimes. Also so-so security limits my finances to work on my hobby. I do some work as a licensed locksmith here in middle Tn. So that's a good part of my introduction and I'm stickin to it. Yeah the tires need replacin but my wife said i HAVE SPENT MY ALLOWANCE SO FAR. Guess I need to cut a few keys.

1978 Dodge Club Cab stocker

(Moved this message to the Newbie check-in after NOT reading the READ FIRST post )

Hey everyone-
I'm picking up a nice, stock '78 Club Cab today; 360ci with auto trans. I'm new to American trucks and have a lot to learn about suspensions, brakes, etc, but I plan to swap (with help from friends) a 4BT and 5 speed OD trans in there eventually. Probably converting to 4WD in the process.
This will be a 90% road truck- nothing hardcore, not towing or hauling anything major on a regular basis. I'll be reading up on this stuff but I'm going to have questions, maybe/probably some dumb ones, but I'll try to keep those to a minimum. Pics ASAP.
