My project '88 SWB pioneer

Recommended Posts

I did an introduction elsewhere on the site and have now decided to make a project out of this thing. I will update as I get things done. Not going to be anything special but it will be a "Florida" manche with no rust!!!


My Son bought it thinking he would make a trail rig but had a new baby and didn't have time for this so I bought it from him. As he got it:

Put a new fuel pump in and made it run!! :D

Tranny's shot!! :mad: Did a tranny - t/c swap and now it moves!! comanche.gif

Called a local jy and found out they had one to look at. Jackpot!! Got a seat, rear window, marker light and a "Monster" rear bumper!!

Put the seat & rear window in it. Now it's dry and I can see where I am going!! jamminz.gif

Need to clean up and repaint the bumper and then recruit some weightlifters to help install it.

Plan on licensing it soon and take it for a spin at speed to see how it rides and what else I need to fix.

Hope to put on different wheels / tires soon - 31 x 10.5's probably.

Completed the wheels & tires this past weekend. JY wheels and 31x10.5-15 tires. Might do a small lift but do not have any clearance problems as is.
