-Dana 60 front diff with air locker 3.73 ratio
-12k ramsey or warn winch
-front skid plate (steering linkage protection)
-4" suspension lift
-custom built 6.2 w/20 psi turbo, timing gears, db2 pump, custom built air and intake manifold, block bedplated plus 1" blockcrete, 4130 crank, ceramic coat...well everything, block and heads machined for brass cylinder seal rings, custom built exhaust manifolds w/ 1 3/4" tubes and 3" collectors. and 3" dual exhaust with mufflers, ARP head/main studs....can you say "Hot Rod"
-33"-34" tires
-NV 4500 tranny with removeable bellhousing and old style mechanical clutch
-NP 205 transfer case
-14 bolt full floater rear diff with air locker and 3.73 ratio
-HHO generator

After thinking about it a bit, hell this is a dream anyway,...I'd use the NV 5600 tranny.

You can't use a manual linkage on either of those transmissions...and besides, why the hell would you want to?!



My dream truck:

Mine, completed with a 6BT swap, NV4500, and NP205

The drivetrain sounds dynomite, but I would go with a 91-93 truck, and make it a 1500, 2WD, reg. cab, short box. Of course i would put a 14 bolt FF or a Dana in the back also, but imagine the power to weight ratio on that baby Oh and who needs creature comforts, cruise power windows and power locks are for the lazy.

Since you insist on duel exhausts, better have twin turbos to go with them. I still like the suburban body.

Of course you can, its a matter of will. I've just never been a fan of the hydraulic set-ups.

The idea here was thay you guys build your own damn truck and quit trying to change mine....Besides that, its a good way to spark ideas amongst some knowledgeable people.
