I just reread the whole thread, but maybe I missed something... Are you using the original motor that came with it or that cobra motor?

Not bad, lots to see and do. Everything is expensive, and I miss my truck, lol. On the upside.. I finally got around to learning to ride a motorcycle. Got me a little 400cc Suzuki Savage. Hoping to pick up a harley when I come back stateside.

well i have a few updates.

i didnt feel like spending $100 to get a body lift for this truck, so instead i spent about 20 and made my own. some 2 3/8 washers and some 2.5" rigid conduit. only took about an hour to make them.







and the new height with the body lift installed:



i went down to a local steel yard and bought about 30 dollars worth of 3/8 flat plate and some square stock and went to town making some radius arm drop brackets and a tranny cross member

radius arm drop brackets:





and the tranny cross member:





oh and i also have the motor, tranny, and t-case installed





and just a side view of the truck with some fenders back on it.



also for those of you wanting to install a c6 with a np208 in a first gen you will have to notch/plate/ box in the frame the frame under the driver door so the t-case will clear
