new from the PNW

hello all. I came across the site looking for ideas for my next mod and it seems to have a butt ton of info on here. figured I'd join to add just one more opinion I'm currently redoing my truck 96 Nissan PU, ok for those that have not given up and would like to see. I'm close to the end and ready to take it out again. It has been forever and a day since I last went wheeling. current mods are 3-link front and rear, SAS'd, custom winch bumper, V8 swap, and in the middle of the king cab conversion.

started with...

thanks for the welcomes, basicly all there is now is body work, not my favorite, but it must get done. then, the last teardown, inspection, and reassembly. I've been itching to get in and drive the thing.

Welcome to the forum

Your truck looks and sounds like a capable wheeler. Are you over on the West side?

Love the vintage paint scheme! How does that LS look under the hood? I'm surprised entropy didn't give you a rash about it.

That isn't exhaust exiting above the rear tire is it? Tell me the camera is playing tricks.

This is one of the few places the LS belongs

I love old school engines and the sound of their raw HP but it's crazy how easy it is to get power out of the LS based engines.Don't be a technology hater.It just pisses me off they went so many years with garbage flowing small blocks before they decided to do some R&D.I still roll in a big block for my tow machine but if your looking for a good engine to build upon it has to be LS in a car,hotrod,crawler,etc.I'm sure this won't be the last time I get flamed for a comment like this. Lol

So how does this work in the dirt?

I'd like to do the bob-n-weave you did on the bed of the truck however it cuts directly into the fuel capacity on our Ranger. I'm toying with multiple tanks and that complexity to solve that problem.
