I6-1992 EFI motor swap (currently under way) 3G swap
It is mostly stock with a 8" lift. I replace the front axle pivet mount bracket and all the rubber bushings to poly. I regeared the 8.8 with 4:56 and an Auburn differential. I complete a rear shackle flip (sky products) and a belltech drop bracket to add more lift. I replaced the stock rubber body mounts for poly and added a 3" body lift. Added 40X17 supper mudder gumbo tires on 15"X12" wagon wheels
The cam shaft went flat and started to chatter real bad. i got a 1992 F150 and swapping the motor and goodies over to Jezebel. Updates listed below
