The Beast 2.0?
« on: September 16, 2018, 09:10:33 PM »
Drug home project #3...........I may have a problem, but I couldn't pass up this opportunity

This rig is going to get thrown together fast with almost no money into it. Hoping to trail wheel it before the end of the year

Below is all of the parts we already have laying around

350 crate motor with Holley Fuel Injection
TH400 (needs rebuild)
NP203/205 doubler (needs adapter to trans)
Dana 60 front w/4.56 gears and locker, chromalloy shafts, PSC Hydro Assist
Shaved 14bff (came with the truck) I already have a line on a 4.56 14 bolt (needs disc brakes and ring turned down)
Suspension is all staying original. I just need to change out one of the front main leafs
We have a whole wiring harness set up for the 350 we will swap into this rig
I still have the old smittybuilt winch from my blazer
Going to add a few more supporting tubes to the roll cage. I have all of the tubing laying around the house.

Need to find seats and buy seat belts, but we might just use the Jeep seats until we find something cheap.
All of the plumbing will need to be done
Need a shifter for the trans
Also need to find a set of tires and wheels which will be where most of the money for the build goes.

I think we just found some old 37"s that I'm going to run for now. Just need some wheels

Got Optimus Primer's engine, trans, and doubler out. Engine is on the stand getting ready for a new PSC pump, manifolds, flexplate and a few other odds and ends that broke or failed. Luckily we have a TH400 in the shed already set up for a np203, so I just ordered an adapter. I will take the trans down to Sun Transmission this week to get a reverse manual valve body, stock rebuild, and new torque converter. Hoping to get the D60 out from under it next weekend and into the beast

Engine is cleaned up. Installed new manifolds and PSC pump. We had to play musical vehicles and tires to get the blazer in the right position for the axle swap. Mounted all 4 bald treps and picked up all of the brake parts needed for rear discs. We are going to use a pair of almost new 2.5" lift springs for the front that were laying around. I just need to stop at Copperstate tomorrow for new pins and the front axles will get swapped sometime this week.

Got the axle swap done this weekend. 2.5" front springs added, but I'm not sure if they will settle low enough. I guess we will figure that out when we get to that point. Stripped the last few pieces needed off of the grey truck and moved it back to the backyard.

I don't know when the transmission is going to be done, so if it isn't ready this week I'll probably set up the rear discs and put the new wheels in the back

The beast got a new pitman arm, tie rod ends, and drag link ends this week. Finished up the brakes on the rear 14 bolt and mounted the new wheels and tires on the back. Also got a lucky score on some cheap used suspension seats. Just need to buy one more and we are set. Hopefully the transmission is done soon. I'd like to work on engine mounts and cross member after KOH
