Wow, I forgot about this thread.....I need to show the rest of the build and completion.

In order to set the 4.3 I had to find a good placement position which required gabbing my own motor mounts and a new trans/tcase crossmember.

After this it took a bit of thinning of the original wiring harness and the use of a Howell stand-alone computer and harness to get it up and running. Comp was flashed to get rid of emissions crap and need for a catalytic.

Well its been a while since the last update and I have wheeled this thing hard......it is finally time to roll it into garage and make some major changes and upgrades.
Time for some new power
'99 4.3L motor and a TH350 with a reverse manual valvebody, I will be wiring it with a stand alone Howell engine harness.
Minor suspension tweaks
Possibly need new gears in the front after the last trip out (something is making noise)

Put some small tires on to make it a bit lower and easier to work on.....looks funny with tiny boots.
Cut the whole front off as I want to tube it and dove the front end
New motor and tranny combo....doing some upkeep, gaskets, cleaning etc... before she goes in

So far just sorting out lots of little parts etc... and figuring out what can be deleted.

Google Earth, imagination and the desire to get there.

There are also different GPS type apps you can put on your phone that show air photos and your place on them, record your tracks and distances travelled.....simple and a great tool

Tie rod was spagetti'd and the idler arm on that side was bent up pretty good.....got it bent back down with the use of 2 hi-lift jacks.....good enough for him to back road it home.....he is gonna build a double shear set up for it.
He was definately using that tracker hard :)
