Hmmm, I don't get on forums much anymore, but was cruising here looking at threads catching up.

Thought this truck was in here, but I searched my posts in this thread and it doesn't show up...

My retro towrig....75' Crew dually, 3.73 LSD rear, 460, E4OD with a US shift controller (Electronic Overdrive trans), Vintage Air (needs installed), and a new radio with a aux input (needs installed too). Currently parked with all gas tanks out to be redone with Eastwood Restoration products.

Hoping by next year to have some very nice Alcoas on it, and about 3 inches lower.

Still think you need to swap in a 12 valve Blair. I love that truck regardless.

I hear ya!!!! One day more than likely it will get a dizzle swap. Probably before we head west when the kids are gone.

Right now it runs so good and has such low mileage on the motor (46k) I'm going to run it for a while.

I feel your pain there. When I did the "rebuild" on my jeep I REALLY wanted to put in a V8 and fun stuff like that, but I just didn't see the need to pull out a perfectly good, running motor. As long as it runs, I'm gonna keep rockin it till it dies. I'll slowly build a fun little stroker motor for it, so when the 4.0 dies, I'll have a "drop in" power boost for it.
