    ‘82 Engine Swap & Restification

    I might have cheated a bit on the front axle placement; but not with the shackle reversal (that I know). The SR was on it when I got it; so I didn't have a before and after to compare. When I got the custom springs; I wanted it centered a tiny bit more; Alcan put the spring perch pin either...

    ‘82 Engine Swap & Restification

    I'm guessing stock width and 35s is going to give up some turning radius.... I'm likely going Izuzu D44 rear; just re-drill the rotors and add a locker and be done with it.... '63-69 J-200, J-2000 65.5" '63-69 J-300, J-3800 65.75" '70- 72, Gladiator J-2000 frnt-63.5" rr-63.81" '70- 72...

    ‘82 Engine Swap & Restification

    I'm headed this direction as soon as funds are there... I want to be 60-61" wide (safe clearance to springs on both side at full lock). I currently have 2" spacers (I know, I know, but its temporary) allow the correct width. With 7 deg caster and an alignment it tracks down the highway at 75...

    The other variable is shift quality. Nv-4500 shifts like a HD truck; which isn’t much fun. Ax-15 and Nv-3500 are much nicer....
