those are some aggresive looking tires. I don't think I've ever seen any like those, what brand are they?

I agree! I had 36" Super Swampers on an old beat up '77 Chevy that looked cool, but those look amazing.

Maxxis Trepador in a sticky compound. Super aggressive tread design but they don't work that well from brand new, they need to abused to get the stickiness happening.

Ok, Sunday we fitted the 40's and got it to the end ride height.


Then we cut the front off.


And then during my lunch break today, we got the cab off.



Tomorrow, Jnr should have the old drive train out and the new one sitting in between the chassis rails at the right height on Wednesday. Sunday, we start grinding the old mounts off the chassis.

It's getting there ha ha.

Jnr managed to get the old motor, box and transfer out yesterday, ready to mock up where the new one goes for today. Chassis should get cut this weekend.

Old motor is out, new motor is in! All welded in both engine wise and trans wise. Cab will go back on on Sunday to see how much of the firewall needs trimming as we moved the engine rearwards a tad. Then the cab will come so we can trim it all up and measure up for the sheeting to replace what we take out.

Wow !  You're making a lot of progress in a very short amount of time, especially considering the work that is required .  .  .

Cheers man! Things will slow a little from here as for a while as getting geometry right for the 4 link front and rear will be a tedious task. I've got until April to finish it though.

Man, what a day. Pretty much a full eight hours to remove the last part of the dash and wiring and fit the cab. We ended up running with a 1" body lift just to help with clearance.
So after some very careful measuring, we started cutting.


And then some more


And then some more


And then finally it fits. Huzzahhhh!!!!!!



Next thing we do is start on the link mounts. Can't wait!!

Awesome !  Seeing the power brake booster on the "wrong" side of the firewall made me do a double-take .  .  .

Cab and chassis cleaned, chassis cut and we start bending tube the weekend. Can't wait!

High pressure cleaning the chassis and cab, sick of touching something and getting covered in diesel soot.


A frame jigged up so we can still move it around the workshop minus wheels and suspension. Diffs are left in place at the location they were on the 40's.


Front chassis cut, ends will get capped and tubed higher than where to stock chassis went.


Rear chassis cut. Winch plate will rest between the chassis rails and all the rear tube work will run from here.


Will grab more pics this weekend of the first bends.
