Re: Complete build change. Lifted 2wd

The Cherry picker sank into the dirt when the cab was lifted which actually made it vary sturdy and easy to roll the new frame under it.Name:  IMG_2837.jpg

With the cab on we set the front clip on just to see how it was gonna look. Pretty happy with it.

My brother is 6'2" so you can compare how tall the truck is to him.

Im thinking this will come down slightly when the motor is dropped in and when the rear is raised to match the front. But for now on 29" tires the fender opening sits at 42-1/8".

Re: Complete build change. Lifted 2wd

what are you going to do about the bed, since the floor was raised to fit the bagged frame?

Well thats been kinda a headache as of recent. I want to save the original sheet metal because my dad gave me the truck when I was young. The bed was only really modified on the inner walls but it was somewhat a lot. Been looking for patch panels but cant seem to get a deal on anything. A buddy has a complete bed that I might just settle on for $250 bucks.

Other option is to just run it as a raised floor for temporary. Not ideal but it would match and still function.

If it's important to you to keep the original sheet metal then you could always cut the bedsides up from the bed you have now and the bed your buddy has to make your bedsides good. Not ideal and would certainly make the purists on this site go crazy (especially if the other bedsides are in good shape), but would most certainly work.

I've considered it. Just not sure what to do there. For now its last on the list. I can run it without temporarily while I work that out. Still need to get it running and driving first haha

Re: Complete build change. Lifted 2wd

Small update but feels like big progress. Finished making the brake lines up to the master cylinder. Gotta give credit to my brother, he really did well on all the bends I asked of him in my opinion.

Just need to get some more clamps to finish tidying them up. bled the system and only had one small fitting seeping, tightened the fitting and no leaks. I got brakes!

Onto the Parking brake cables. Ideally I would have liked to have them not run across the rear end but I wanted to use the stock mounting points for the frame to keep all the other cables on the truck factory, So we used 2 Driver side E-Brake cables from the newer silverado. They function well so this is how they will stay.

The cables have little mounting tabs which allowed us to mount the cables and keep things from flopping around.

Picked up some inner fenders from a buddy and started the prep for them to get installed. Pretty solid other than a small amount of rust on the passenger side front

Set the motor in. Fought us a bit but we got it done. Unfortunately we are planning to pull it again to do the harness. We haven't done an LS before so we figure it would be easy to miss a sensor or something if we try to wire it without the motor sitting in front of us in the garage.

I do have a question if there is any experts. The motor seems to sit slightly higher than others i have seen. The pan is only about a 1/4" below the cross member. No clearance issues with the firewall or anything. I have a 73-87 cross member and 73-87 motor mount towers, 73-87 clams and Poly motor mounts with 3/8" thick adapter plates. Does anyone see this being an issue or just sit slightly high? Hood still closes also.

Also turned out that the manifolds my buddy gave me were not TBSS. They were off a F-Body. I test fitted both and the truck manifolds fit with such little adjustment and have the O2's in the down pipes already that I'm gonna run those.

Re: Complete build change. Lifted 2wd

Well Photobucket officially deleted most the first page pictures in this thread. if anyone needs any info or wants to see anything specific just ask and I'll repost it.

Picked up a new battery tray thanks to my buddies at Brothers trucks. Good group of guys and quality parts, fit like a glove and saves me a lot of time.

loosely fit the fuel lines onto the motor for a test fit. looks like I can use the stock lines from the motor all the way to the frame, will adjust the bracket slightly but i will even be able to use the stock fuel filter.

Re: Complete build change. Lifted 2wd

Made a ton of progress on the truck since last updated this thread. Hoping to be driving it within a month.

Stock transmission linkage worked simply by moving the frame mount back about an inch. Actually lines up perfect on the gear shift indicator on the column and I'm able to get from Park all the way to 1st without binding or issues. "Need to clean and touch up the frame"

Chopped up the stock 2000 Tahoe pedal and used the stock 69 pedal bracket mounting holes on the firewall. lines up pretty good. will look into either changing the chrome trim pad that I have for a standard waffle pad, or upgrading to the chrome trim gas pedal once its driving.

Re: Complete build change. Lifted 2wd

Ended up abandoning my 31 gallon gas tank in favor of a 25 gallon tank out of the 87 and later EFI blazer/suburbans. Going to run the stock Silverado pump I have in this tank since it is baffled.

It tucks up in the frame much better also. It is the same physical dimensions of the 31 gallon tank, just shallower so all we had to do was shorten the straps. Sits above the hitch now, which is also a huge plus.

Test fit the Ford Windstar fans. As other members have said, they fit really well. Unfortunately these fans are junk. Got them from eBay and when received, tested them and the motors/bearings are bad. got a refund, and purchased some brand new ones from Amazon.

Jumped the fuel pump and a few other connections to see if it would fire. We had a few things that stopped it from firing the first time and it was pretty frustrating but once we realized our little mistakes it fired up and ran perfect. Hooked up the obd2 port and scanned for codes. . All clear so far! Had roughly 30-40 psi of oil pressure on my gauge. Not bad for a junkyard find!
Heres a video of it firing up if you wanna check it out

Next is wheels and tires since the stockers that are on it hit the tie rods and are much too small for the lift. Gonna run Mud terrains on one of these two wheels. Just need to make up my mind.

Re: Complete build change. Lifted 2wd

Test fit the wheels off my Titan to see how a 33" would look on the truck. obviously not a good looking wheel on the Chevy and the front body panel isn't bolted up and aligned yet but there is plenty of room for a 33".

We finished up all the loose ends, put some fluids in her, ran it up to temp. Fans worked as they should. idled really well. and did a small test for the transmission in the back yard. not much room back there but we got a 1/10th of a mile on the odometer. real test will be after we get the wheels and tires so we can see if she shifts. fingers crossed!

she drives under her own power!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l2V_...ature=youtu.be

Wheels and tires to come this week. Than an alignment and some exhaust and should be ready to go. Also got a buddy with a bed for it so probably gonna pick that up asap.
