What do yall think about body lifts? Do u think I should keep it or take it off? It has 33's on it know and I think it will clear 35's with or without the body lift!

Personally I don't like them, but with these smaller trucks it's necessary sometimes. Comes down to personal preference.

I may what and see if I have enuff clearance once the motor and tyranny r n and if there is room I may remove the body lift!
I may cut the bed down alittle. There ant much on this ol' datsun bed to to Bob the frame is only about two or three inches from the end of the bed! Anything is possible on this old Thanh!!!
I'm going to take the bed back off tonight so I can cut the back of the cab out and bed so I can make the walk through. More like craw through on this thang!!!! Stay toned. For a little bit of HACKING TONIGHT

I think I'm going to lower the bed about 3 or so inches so that the back seat will be close to the same level as the front two seats! I just got to find a new location for the gas tank!

My step brother had one when we were 16. I loved that little truck. I played baseball in high school and use to sit in the back and hold my metal cleats on the pavement while he was driving and through sparks down main street.

I purchased a th350 tranny off of Craigslist for $80.00 its pretty clean had it check by a buddy of mine he said its in good shape. So I bolted them up and

I'm in process of looking for a 350 complete. Motor for a cheap price and I'm also tring to find some 1 1/2 polyurethane bushings with steel inserts to make some motor mounts and tranny and transfercase mounts!

Some people frown on it, but I built a high steer on my buddies 44 knuckle, all out of 1/4" plate, been going 2 years now and still good to go. Not sure if it suits your application, why I was asking. Will get ya a pic tomorrow!
