capton Hello every one...I'm brand new here... I joined here to gather opinions on a Chevy I picked up. I bought the big blue Chevy that Spencer Pratt sold on eBay.

Is this the right place to gather info on this truck? If no...link please

And the big question...why did this truck flop?
And what is this trucks true value?
Thanks

only4x4s [QUOTE=timothyalderson;11060148]You know I really like this idea. I'd really like to see.....
1. Making Rockwells work under a fullsize Chevy without having to lift it to the moon. Or maybe how to cut them down width wise. Like a best way kinda thing
3. Bobbed beds.
5. Dovetailing/narrowing the front and rear clips of a fullsize.
6. Homebrew dual transfercase adapters.
1.Full hydro/hydro assist steering, DIY style.
3. Homemade flatbeds/tube beds for fullsize rigs.
4. Homemade dash panels.
5. Body swaps (Pickup cab on K5 frame, etc.)
6. In cab rollcages that have the a-pillar tubes going through the dash.
8. Ways to lighten up a fullsize rig without turning it into a buggy.
9. Mega-flex suspensions on a budget.l[/QUOTE

g-wizz how about a section for homebrew tools. just stuff that you have had to fabricate to make fabrication easier. like benders, benches work tables, jigs, what ever random stuff that you have made and use alot.

URBNFLX How about Fusible Link ratings and replacement ideas via circuit breakers, maxi fuses or fmx - jcase fuses?

kpj How about getting more power out of the 4.3?
04-17-2007 12:57 AM
turtle4x4 We can also do one on different bumper designs, exo's, internal cages, rock sliders(basically all types protection) and winches.
04-17-2007 12:54 AM
turtle4x4 How about different front suspension setups... there is already some info on rear suspension upgrades so it only makes sense to move to the front.
07-01-2005 11:25 AM
Ten_Bucks I just came up with a few more suggestions:

1. Making Rockwells work under a fullsize Chevy without having to lift it to the moon.
2. Unimog axle swaps.
3. Bobbed beds.
4. 52"/56" spring swaps.
5. Dovetailing/narrowing the front and rear clips of a fullsize.
6. Homebrew dual transfercase adapters.
7. Homebrew traction bars.

It would be interesting reading at the minimum.

smog late model engines in carberated vehicles

One of the big swaps in CJ jeeps is 4.0 fuel injected into the carbarated CJ.
The trick to make it easy is to go to the smog referee first and ask him what he wants you to do. Then when you are done, you have it in writting what is needed and they will sign you off.

Remember, the idea with smog is to reduce the amount of smog produced. If they can get you to swap in a late model EFI engine, into an old carberated vehicle, there is a dramatic drop in smog output.

In the Cherokee 4.0 to CJ 258, you pull the 100 vacumm hoses engine and carb. Install 4.0 with EFI and 3 vacumm hoses, make sure you get all the computer and sensors, or you will die trying to find them for that motor.
Same goes for Late model Chevy camero and corvette engine swaps, get the referee's nod and make sure you get all the computer and sensor stuff.

I have a 91 3/4 ton that has no bed. Is there any plans floating around for a homemade flatbed?
02-28-2005 11:59 AM
Merlin_57 Can we get a sticky for smog legal engine swaps - say late model fuel injected big blocks into older carbed vehicles. Thanx

I've got an idea. How about doing a TOTW about full hydraulic and hydraulic assist steering?
I second this one. I am in the middle of trying to figure out how to do this the cheapest way possible. I.E. boneyard parts and such. I am just another average un-rich Joe.

joefear7 yea im likeing all the FAQ ideas id really like to do one on TBI and TPI setups Chevy guys as well as all those swappers would love that i know i would
04-25-2003 04:55 PM
Dan shsss All these ideas are great but,, I would like the first topic to about safety ,The reason I say this is because Ive seen to many people put money in there rigs but none of it went into safety. Im even guilty of these myself.. I rolled with my son in the truck the other day at hollister And thank god I had my cage.. Safety should be the first topic!! Damn I didnt see how old this post was!
Roll cages
Securing things
Power cutoffs
Proper seat belts
etc etc

BadDog 1) Electrical Mods - I just got through with a complete rewire. Info on schematics, relay usage, switches, etc. would be cool.

2) Torque Improving Mods - Try to avoid "Stick a big block" in it.

3) Frame improvements - Like brooks plating. New cross members under the engine. Even trany/case cross member designs.

4) Cage designs - Not general cage stuff, but cool "features" to consider. For instance, I've never seen one like mine where the a-pillar bar is just outside the windshield frame (no doors). Protects the windshield like an exo without adding to the width of an already too wide rig... Also, rather than connecting the cage to the frame, I hulled out the "C" sheet metal under the floor and replaced with a 1/4" sub frame still using the isolators. Cage mounts to that, and the GM fire wall/floor/cowl basically just bolt inside the cage (might also go in #3 above).

5) Body mods. Narrowed hoods, cut core supports, angled radiators to get more visibility, grafted in lights. Cut fenders are the obvious entry point, but might get some good stuff?

6) Relocated shocks for extreme travel?

7) Non stock springs? Maybe one on leafs, another on links, qtr-ellip, etc.?

8) Solutions for Death Wobble?

9) How/where do you carry spare parts (and tools?) ?

10) Custom skids and protection?

11) Better cooling for the engine/trans, etc.?

Yeah, some may be lame, hard to keep focused, etc. Just somethings that occurred to my tired, half alcohol soaked brain late at night. Just trying to help.
02-17-2003 09:17 PM
sunshineoffroad While we're on the subjects of suspension, etc. Why not roll cages, designs and materials. Also:
Radiator relocation
Safety harness install with internal cage
Onboard Air
Recovery tools/techniques
Fuel Injection swaps
Carburetor install/tune/tricks
