Just got it this morning, it came all the way form Ohio (a lot cheaper up there then down here, even with the shipping cost).
It has a Chevy 350, TH400 automatic trans, Dana20 T-Case, front Dana 44, rear Ford 9Ē, power steering. The engine starts without a problem and sounds great. Frame is solid, the truck just need some cosmetic repairs.















Dogs are ready to go for a ride!

Yes sir. As for now it will be his whenever he comes to visit and I can use it when I need it. No plans yet for him to take it with him, maybe he will change his mind after I am done fixing it.

So far I need to replace the engine oil pan gasket, transmission pan gasket, and t-case gasket. They are all leaking. The engine is leaking a lot. This should be an easy fix.

The steering box has a leak so the steering pump fluid level was almost empty. The steering was super hard when I got it. I put some more power steering fluid in it and it got better but its still hard, like something is jamming it a bit. Any idea what it could be?

I want to do all the mechanical work before I start fixing the cosmetic things.

This is going to be a fun long project. I cant wait to start but first I need to finish a few things to the wrangler. My guess I should start working on this truck early next year but we will see if I can wait that long.

Thanks guys!!

It needs some work. The driverís floor has a big hole, so I need to replace it as well as both rocker panels and lower door sections, plus I need to fix random rust areas.

The engine has a leak at the timing chain cover and not the oil pan gasket as I thought (already replaced the oil pan gasket). So I will be replacing the taming chain cover gasket soon. Beside the leak, the engine is strong! I took it for a drive on a new closed/empty street at neighborhood, and the truck can go fast! I didnít floor it all the way because I still need to check the brakes but I was impress.

Do to future wedding expenses I am considering (again just considering, depending on an offer) selling this truck. It will include many parts to restore it that I have collected for example, front bumper, doors, new replacement panels, tailgate, etc. Strong frame and runs really good just needs cosmetic work.

PM me if you are interested
