The biggest tire I'm going to run is 35's with the toy stuff.I'm going to use this truck for all my trail runs also sans the body panels. I will also swap in a 4.7 case for trail runs and since its a modular platform d60's with 40's are in the works. All I would have to do is swap the master cyl,axles,drivelines.
I welded up the manifold so it does not have hot water. Then I took the plug out below the thermostat so it can circulate to the water pump. Next I took of the plate at the back off head and made an aluminum one with a fitting and routed a hose to the other side of the water pump behind the timing cover. It's a block off plate that I welded a tube to. In this pic you see the back of the head
and here is the manifold
Thanks I didn't want the same ole sliders under the rocker look. I've been using rectangular tubing for sliders for customers and I always put it on at an angle like that. Got rid of the long shackles and also sleeved the bushings at the same time. I'm going to weld in a piece in between them. I'm making the front ones the same way.
Now the front shackle angle is better and the pinion angle is much improved. Here's a redneck tip o the week. Take a normal front inner seal and fill it silicone to make it hebby dooby faba alba. Just let it dry first.
