The home of the 3.6 litre turbo diesel engine


My engine

History:

The idea is to rebuild it to a road worthy 4x4 truck. My previus rig was a GMC Jimmy 6.2 -83, it was a nice truck but it had some pros and cons. Pros, relative short wheelbase, mechanical diesel engine, easy to find part. Cons: wrong axles D44 and 14 BSF with 3:73 gears, wrong transfercase NP208 weak and has a sliding yoke. I did some mods to the rig like 52" spings in front and 56" in the rear and renovated the axles, the ring was prepared for cross over steering because the D44 had milled flat head nuckles. Bur still it wasn't right from the begining.

The old rig

 

After selling the Jimmy I brought a JEEP J20 early in 2008 as a new project rig. As you can see its a "project", lots of work.

As you can see there are some rust on the left side of the bed.

Some pics in the engine department before renovation.

Atfer some work.
