I think you are right.
No joke, I have a perfect frame sitting here. Still trying to track down either a Thunderbird IRS or a fX4 8.8.. Dana 35 is sitting here ready to go as well.I think you are right.
Look the frame over really really good too, especially behind brackets like the front spring mounts.
You might need a truck...
damn... if only I could load up dads junk S-blazers and my daughters 2 toasted compact cars (and the ‘94 F250) $3,750Yard that I use is $66 for any solid axle with brakes and all ??
Just going to wait on whichever is first, the IRS or the FX4.
Side note: These guys rolled into town in 2017. Since then, every single junkyard in Pittsburgh has been going out of business.
Place is always packed.
During the warm weather months,all engines are 99 out the door, and every Tuesday all Transmissions are 100 out the door. Doesnt matter what it is.
Every other weekend is 50% off everything, and they do at least one all yiu can carry day for $76.
Selling them any vehicle, running or non running, is $750.
Freaking. Love. Them.
If I spot one, want me to grab anything for you?FX4LII or equivalent stuff is stupid scarce around me.
I have seen two, neither had rear axles in them when I found them. Someone robbed the shift knobs out of one but I made off with the levers. 2 years later I have yet to see another one.
You surely know by now that you can't use an aluminum tank for methanol... You're also gonna want the largest tank you can fit in the truck, unless you really enjoy refilling a very hazardous fluid that burns invisibly..Tossed a stupid ricer aluminum radiator overflow bottle in, and an aluminum washer fluid tank. Needed a different tank for methanol, and wanted to clear out more room for the blower. Goodbye, plastic crap tanks!
Methanol = washer fluid.You surely know by now that you can't use an aluminum tank for methanol... You're also gonna want the largest tank you can fit in the truck, unless you really enjoy refilling a very hazardous fluid that burns invisibly..
