Still running and gets you where you need to go.
Formerly known as Ol'Yeller, owned by a guy named Brian.
I bought the truck on ebay going by the picks shown under the "Ol'Yeller" title.
Well, I learned my lesson, the truck needed lots of work and was NOT in as good a shape as I thought. That said, Scout purists beware, its not the same truck:) deal with it.
I installed a D.U.I. distributor and converted to a Weber 32/36 with good results. Also added a "Stans Header and flowmaster. The poly tank I put in the driverside was a bad call as far as upgrades go. Those things are even harder to fill than the stock metal tanks. I re-wired the whole truck using a kit from Painless which was a great idea and not TO bad for a wannabe mechanic. I put some new "Bestop" vinyl seats in the front and will re-upholster the rear eventually.
O yeah, the truck is now red.
Im on my way to Afghan for awhile and having some work done so this will be more capable as a daily driver. Here's the punch list.
- Hamy EFI, rebuilt 152
- T-18 Conversion
- Dana 18/20 hybrid T-case
- Warn Over Drive
- New D-44s
- Front Discs
- Maybe a power steering upgrade
- Reverse shackle
- Urethane body bushings
- Custom seat bases
- Single 20 gallon fuel tank
- Custom tailgate latch
