In May 2009 I bought the truck. It had with a blown motor, but came spare block & crank, 3" BL and some not so desirable rear suspension. For $500 bucks I figured it was a good enough deal.

Day I got it home.



Notice the 3" blocks and aal in the back, but no lift in the front.


Hole in each side of the block

Bought another 22R with a new clutch on it for $100 bucks, then rebuilt it. I used a engnbldr kit and went ahead and threw in a crawler cam. New alternator, water pump, fuel pump, hoses, belts, carb rebuild kit, etc, were purchased with my buddy's employee discount at O'reilly's. :D





Teardown in Progress

Bought some 35x12.50 SSR's and had to put em on just to see how much trimming I'll have to do. I also put on a bumper given to me.





If plans pan out, I'm hittin it hard after the first of the year. Rears up front, along with crossover steering, stock Taco springs in the rear, and dual cases along with a front axle rebuild. :dancing:

I've been seeing a lot of DP just sitting around these last couple of weeks. I'm finally getting some work done, and now DP is sitting down there all by itself.

Well I managed to get the duals put in in, but the rear crossmember is in the way of the driveshaft. I'll have to cut it out and put a crossmember somewhere else. I'm planning on picking up some more steel tomorrow. I'll get pics when it's all done.

The Budbuilt flat cross member still requires a lot of cutting despite the body lift.
Only a phone pic for now.
