Re: Dbear's '71 4x4 Burb with some USA Military Diesel

An update....

Got the burb running and tranny adjusted out. Had new exhaust ran. Next thing will be to change springs out. I am taking off the Skyjacker 4 in spring lift, and putting about an 2 1/2 - 3 inch lift back on. I will then be selling the Skyjacker kit, which has about 10 miles on it, just a little high for this DD. I will then be replacing the entire front clip, with a 67 Chevy front end. Will add new aux battery tray and front replacement bumper as well.

In the pic, is my first trip to buy Diesel fuel. Those are 235/85/16's on the tank, and trying to decide to go up to 255/85/16's in the same tire, which is Cooper Discoverer ST's. Really like the tread, just not sure about size? Feel free to give opinion, because might help me decide.

I think 285/75/16 wrapped on those skinny steels would look tough.

Something about a 4x4 with tall skinny tires just gets me excited. Definately tough but classy and tasteful!

Re: Dbear's '71 4x4 Burb with some USA Military Diesel

Nice swap! Are you going to add a turbo? Gassers are ok for most but when you want to have it all then you step up to diesel. You can't tell I'm a diesel tech can you? Looks like a fairly straight forward swap. Close to the same dementions as a small block. I too like the 67-68 front clips especially the GMC's.

If you decide to go with a turbo on that thing, I know someone with a complete setup.

The Burb is looking good Tommy. I think I would like it a little lower too, but you know how short I am...

Hey, did you use SBC perches and BBC mounts or did you do something different to get the 6.2L to fit?

hey bud....I moved the engine cradle forward about 1 7/8in, mostly for the 700r4 swap, but it actually helped the motor fit very nicely. I basically mounted the 6.2 to the stock sbc chevy engine cradle with sbc engine mounts in between. Everything cleared very good. let me know if you have any more questions.

As a matter of fact we are headed to Houston for Thanksgiving. If we have time on the way back maybe I will give you a call and we can go somewhere and have a soda or bite to eat.
