My credo
Smog is for pussies.
So I'm halfway through a project I've been wanting to do for years. I thought it would be a good idea to post it on here. I am building my truck, finally.

I've got the Solo Motorsports stage 2 long travel kit for the front, a 40 gallon fuel tank is going behind the axle.

And the stock 4.0 is getting built as well. I found a set of brand new 4.0 con rods and slapped ARP bolts in em. I got .030 over flat top hypereutectic pistons, hastings plasma moly rings, king bearings, 6300rpm Delta camshaft, 98TM heads with a DIY exhaust port job, double roll timing chain, melling high volume oil pump, TwEECer equipped ECU, SPEC stage 4 unsprung clutch hub and their overpressured pressure plate, screamin demon 45,000V coil pack, Taylor cable 8.2 spiro-wound wires, motorcraft platinum plugs. 24

The rear axle tubes are tig welded into the housing. And the shackles are flipped.
I'm going to break in the engine on an old clutch and with a 2wd transmission. Leave the t-case and front driveshaft out until it is ready for the unsprung clutch.

I am running 100LL/89e10 50/50
Should be 97 octane at sea level.
