Re: new rig

i really don't think big blocks are a good choice for these trucks. i will most likely build the 351 eventually. big blocks require cutting the wheel wells and heavier springs up front and its a relatively light rig anyways, you don't need a big block

Re: new rig

What Axles and what gears, Dana is the maker, they are probably 44s just wondering. The old Broncos are nice, my buddy has a 72(I think) in his shop getting some work done on it. Wheeled with the guy a year or so ago, it will go anywhere and has been on its lid once or twice. You got your self a nice rig. I do agree that a big block is over kill and will not bring anything to the party over a small block or even a good stright six. Depending on where you are at and what you have planed to do with it get a GOOD cage, 1.75 .120 wall DOM. That is the way i went and I am sure it will be plenty strong just in case we go rubber up.

Re: new rig

Sheesh, guys use 375CT to kill paper,unoffending iron plates etc, then claim a BB is overkill in a wheeler. The Chebby part was tongue in cheek but then I would. Still a damn nice rig B Joe!

Re: new rig

Nice looking rig. You will defiantly want to get the floor shifter in this from wheeling with a few guys with similar rigs you can always tell who hasn’t converted yet.
