    Jim, I just wish I could remember to take pics and maybe write articles about a lot of the little mods I have done. Hope to get some of my other projects close to completion and maybe get back to doing some more on my truck. Oh well...... there's a reason that it's name is "someday"

    JP, ask away, I have turned several onto the easiest swap that I have ever found. Have a friend in Tulsa doing a 52 Suburban and a 50 Willys wagon right now.

    I knew if I searched long enough I would find someone who has swapped the MB diesel in a F1...seeing your build I have decided I am going with the diesel and I will prob be asking questions, I hope you wont mind.

    Although it is far from being a hotrod, I love the MB diesel. Good fuel economy, long life, fairly cheap to buy plus the wow factor at shows makes it perfect. I've put about 42K miles on it in just under 4 years and hope for many more.

    How do you like the OM617? Is that working well for you in your truck?

    Thanks, it has been a blast! I spent 63 nights in it last year and plan to do many more than that this year. I have a teardrop gathering in late March and from there I plan to head west till I hit water and turn north till I run out of road, final destination.... Deadhorse, AK Probably put between 10-15K on the truck and trailer before I come home.
