bought this truck a few years ago had a JD stage 1 list and the 289 already done but it ran like crap and wouldnt charge the issue was wiring it was done by ROOKIES took a couple weekend but I managed to get her done this is how she looked the day I bought her



on way home did a tire swap and got rid of the balding all-terrians but did keep one for a spare



I took her out wheeling for the first time and had many issues worst was the carb flooding had to get the truck pulled up hill many times so I bought this




edelbrock performer intake and off-road thunder carb




then bought a 91 ranger for parts mainly D 35 and 8.8 and started a swap and supension upgrade and by this time I had moved and lost my shop so things had to be done on a gravel driveway this slowed me down but been working on her as much as possible here are some swap pics

the suspension parts extended radius arms and dual shocks



the old D28 out



the d 35 install had also installed a lock rite in this



here are some pics of the suspension being upgraded







also added JD headers and gutted interior then painted with dupli color bed liner

don't have much to go exhaust and have to have a cross member fabbed so I can bolt on the dana 20
and future plans are to install that 8.8 and have them re geared and also a twin stick for the dana 20
and need exhaust

lotsa money spent guess more to spend

its been a slow build but its coming along I get a big bonus soon for a huge job we did so I am hoping I can get the rest done maybe early April we'll see.I used to have a shop to work on her but landlord sold house here everything gets done outside and on gravel driveway and here rains and rains all the time and when weather nice I generally work.
