Re: Project Eat Soot

BADASS!!!

Did you do anything to the front end for the added weight?

Thats a low hp/tq cummins, but how much will the stock frame hold without twisting?

Re: Project Eat Soot

Thanks guys. For the extra weight up front I had Alcan build me the 6" lift springs for front. I also boxed the front frame from the firewall forward.

The suspension and tires consists of:
6" Alcan front springs
4" ORD rear springs
ORD shackle flip
ORD 1" zero rate for the rear to move axle back to center wheel well

37" 12.50 BFG KM2 Tires
Weld Cheyenne 8 17x10 Wheels

Re: Project Eat Soot

Wow!!!! is all i can say, great job. What a transformation.

Few questions for you.

Where did you get the engine crossmember from and the mounting brackets for your hydroboost?

Keep the pics coming and post some vid when all done. I want to see it in action.

Re: Project Eat Soot

Thanks it's been a long road to get here so I'm ready to enjoy it at this time. As far as the crossmember it is a SSOR (Screamin Seeman Off Road) its for a 73-87 and I had to modify a little. The hydroboost bracket is from Captain Fab he is a vendor on this site and makes a very nice product and fast shipping...believe he is in Idaho.

Re: Project Eat Soot

Awesome job, it sure looks really nice! How does it ride with the shorter wheel base? On your cross over manifold, I've used a 4 1/2" angle grinder with a flap wheel and removed the dodge and let the other stuff. It looks pretty cool after you sand it all out and polish it up.

Nice truck! i have been thinking about doing the same engine swap. Did you use the factory gas tank and lines from the tank to the engine?

What size lift is on the truck and tires? I give you mad respect, the rig you you have has to be the cleanest i have ever seen. I would like to do a cummins swap in the future. Sweet truck.

Re: Project Eat Soot

Thanks all of you. As far as the ride it rides fairly good still a little choppy with the short wheelbase. It needs some weight in the back still. I had the 6" Alcan springs made for this application with this engine so the front is dialed. To answer the question 7" lift total with the Dana 60 front it gave me another 1". The rear has an ORD shackle flip and 4" ORD springs. Tires are BFG 37x12.50 on 17x10 Welds

The fuel tank is a factory replacement tank and I ran all new lines that I made..basically same as stock with a return line to the tank. Pretty simple setup really
