Almost done

10 years I bought my truck in a split second. If only I knew what I was starting, I would have done it earlier.

Thanks to all on this site, for answers, parts and inspiration.

This is what I started with:

And this is where I am today:

I kept the 230 that was in it. I adapted a T5 transmission, and it has a Dana 44 diff with 3.56 gears.

Re: Almost done

Sounds fun, T5s and straight sixes are like peanutbutter and Ritz crackers. A great combo.
