here is my baby :) ...sitting pretty with 500km on new OME suspension install ( thanks to Cruiser Outfitters ) . All I can say is I wish I did this years ago ! She rides so smoothly now it is unbelievable that it is the same truck...this set-up breathes new life into a tired truck.
I have owned her for 6 years and it has been a love hate relationship , more love though .
In the last 4 months I have redone the body buy removing and replacing all rust with new metal and repainting her the factory color . Removed the rear diff and rebuilt by John Zwicker at AFAR . Repaired any rust issues on the frame . During OME install both axle assemblies were removed and painted with por 15 . Most of the frame has been also painted with por 15 . Relocated axle breathers up on the firewall . Rebuilt cooling fan clutch :banana: ( big improvment in cooling ) .
Things in progress are to finish turbo manifold and install turbo system . Put on some larger tires and rebuild the knuckles .
:cheers: Daryl
