Easiest way is find a complete donor with a blown motor or crash damage....

However, if you go that route don't buy a wreck that has front end damage for obvious reasons, good chance something you need might be damaged.

Yeah I'll definitely look for a donor with engine problems rather than a damaged one.

jk89cat,

You're right on that. Sorry, I didn't mean to sound rude about it I was just trying to get the point across.

I've still been thinking about this and I'm wondering if I gathered all of the parts I could bring everything to a shop and have them swap the parts in. I'm not so sure it would be very cheap though.

Thanks, Puddy!

Damn right it does! Can finally take it out mudding, and it will be nice driving in winter now.

Thanks! It's come a long ways. Next year is body work/paint.

The best part is I'm only 18 and I paid for every dollar going into making this truck 4x4 out of my own money.

To the next generation...

Congrats, Minnesotafisherman! You are an encouragement to those of us older guys who sometimes wonder about the future of these trucks and whether they will continue to have an avid following. We might often identify with Clint Eastwood's character in the movie "Gran Torino" when he disdainfully snarls his lip and and refers to those "rice burners". But when we see aficionados such as you our faith in the continuation of the hobby is bolstered. Keep up the good work!

dn.

Thank you, Donnor!

I know exactly what you mean. My generation doesn't have the greatest reputation, especially working on vehicles. Most kids around here get some brand new car that their parents bought for them, well I on the other hand paid for my truck in full with my own money when I turned 16 and have been working on it ever since. Everything I do to my truck comes out of my paychecks. Most people are shocked when I tell them about doing the conversion, and that I'm only 18.

I expect to have some kind of project car to work on throughout my life, and no, not a Rice burner. There's some around here, and they are the most obnoxious things.

Anyways, Gran Torino is one of my favorite movies btw.

Guess next upgrade in the logical progression of 4wd upgrades would be to SAS it. Heard a Dana 44 front out of a 78 or 79 Bronco is almost a direct bolt in if you use Bronco coils and radious arms.

Yeah, that would be nice so I wouldn't have to deal with alignment issues, etc. But right now it is aligned nice and straight, and this truck doesn't see a whole lot of off road use. I mainly wanted the 4wd for the winter.
