Update on my truck

Don't have any current pics right now but have done alot to it lately. Got my OBA going, front locker, new 350 (not too impressed since it has a big cam and not a lot of low end torque but it'll wrap 7,000rpm good for muddin), rear disk brakes, redesigned grill, 2 electric fans (a blow in front of and suck behind teh radiator), skidplate/shround to block off the engine fan after the body lift left it exposed underneith. So anyways, hope to get some pics. Probably running the tractor pull this weekend so if anyone has some tips.....

Didnt you have a 400sbc in there before? I thought that thing had gobs of torque?
7000 rpm [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] thats almost as much as my zuk engine spins, wow. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Update on my truck

throw it in 4Lo start out slow then get on her hard, thats how all the guys do it around here anyway, course they all have 2 wheel drives with alot of wheel spin, you might want to leave it in 4hi, but idk, without much torque maybe 4 lo would be better.
how do you like the Front locker?
did you ever get my Emails
also i dont know if you knew but i got 31s so looks like a real truck now, cept shes down forawhile, i [bleep] it up last night, throttle stuck wide open, My buddy and me got it to unstick but now for some reason its shifting up to soon and not kicking down, or at least i think thats the problem...i hope i didnt [bleep] the truck up bad...

Re: Update on my truck

I broke the crank in my 400sbc when I went a bit too deep in a mud hole. Had water flowing through the cab and covering teh hood. I plan on rebuilding the 400 but I got this 350 for $400 and it came with a weiand intake, 993 heads, and gobs of chrome bruhaha and was a quick replacement.
