I need to thank a few friends for all of their hard work. All of their time and labor was after work hours and on weekends.
These guys helped me. out of friendship and their love of the sport :dblthumb: not the pursuit of money or fame. thumb.gif

The list includes all employees of ESSENTIALLY OFFROAD:
Jimmy Penner
Jon Coleman
Morgan Shepard
Chris Soloman
CJ Ryan
Blake Northern
AND
Ryan Hendrixson of HE-MAN MACHINE
Shannon Taylor Motorwerks
Tim Cameron Scrap & Salvage
Doug & Lucy Tractor service


After digging through the Cameron scrap pile, I took the front axle to Ryan at He-Man Machine to replace the broken front centersection and knuckle.
He made short work of a difficult job. Up next was power from Shannon, a 6.0 with a few secrets :dunno:
then we crammed it into the chassis along with an Atlas and a built powerglide from PTC, thanks Ed.

Cut out the door bars to mount the seats as well as everything else in the interior....

The wheels are 20 bolt and are more like 8 bolt hummers than 12 or 24 bolts....Its the only set I've been able to find,

What kind of EFI set up is that? Why switch from the factory set up?

It's a carb intake with bungs and rails added, the management is Holley thumb.gif

It needed to be this way to look like the original, and fill up the engine cage :dblthumb:
