When my truck was totaled in an accident, I took it as an opportunity to build it back up. Now, it has a 500 C.I.D. Big Block with a shopping list of top-shelf performance parts, including, Bushwacker fender flares, Goodyear 40” MTR tires, custom reverse shackle kit, rear disc brakes, and much more.
After destroying all that nice new sheet metal on my newest joy (rocks and trails), I have decided to retire the truck from its wheeling duties other than light mud and sand, instead using it for towing my cars to and from the track. Now my focus is on finishing the build of my 1969 Bronco for the real wheeling. In the near future, I have plans to convert the truck over to a diesel to make the truck more tow-friendly. While I love the power that the 500-inch big blocks provide, it will only get 5.5 MPG on the best day. This makes it hard to justify driving the truck just for pleasure. I am also considering lowering the truck back down to 35” tires to make it more tow-friendly and more useful when it comes to loading and unloading engines and other heavy parts.
Along with the diesel conversion, I am planning to swap out the C-6 3-speed automatic transmission to an E4OD 4-speed automatic transmission with an overdrive. I also want to swap out the 5.13 gears for a set of 3.73 or 4.10 gears to further increase fuel economy. I will, of course, keep the front and rear lockers to maintain the truck’s off-road abilities.
