Default country0001's Blue B2 build




This is the start of my build thread.


I picked this truck up after I fell in love w my first B2.
Blew the engine shortly after I got it and have the 4.0 installed already.

Installed doors off an 88 that had manual windows cause I liked them.
The last truck will be the front clip donor that I'm getting soon. Will primer the truck when I get it all put together. More to come soon.

I know there is alot of work, but the body damage is just that, body damage.

Took Blue out for a test drive, it was awesome.

It would get sideways when I hit the gas. It was definitely worth the frustration. I had a alot of time issues and picked a poor donor for the swap. I still have to swap in my manual t case (aw shucks), and swap the front sheetmetal, but the truck rocks to drive. TOTALLY WORTH IT.

The engine was the easy swap. Figuring out the harness was rough. When I do the swap in my other B2(TAN) I'll be looking for one with a 5 spd and is 4wd. My donor for this was a 2wd and led to a few problems. But I'm happy with the results.

This is where I grafted the new inner fenders on to the old. Needed the new core support and the driver side was destroyed.


This was the destroyed side alond w the hood.


This last improvement was sure to add HP.

Going to try to get it primered in the next couple of weeks.

At this moment, no. I don't have a welder. I'm going too see how it holds up.
I'll keep a close eye on it.

I know its a lil redneck, but gotta do what I gotta do
