Re: New 4x4 Build/03 7.3 with SMB top

Been working on this rig, mocking up some new parts that I'll be selling soon. A new fuel tank, aluminum and 39 gallons.



Side view



We installed my standard EB rear skid system, and added an underfloor storage to make it a "combo" rear skid. Turned out really nice!



Inside view (before finish welding and pre drilling the mounting holes)


Added a Sterling 10.5 rear, stage 2 with a True Trac.


Front hitch

Ooooooooohhhh.
I will be waiting for more details on the fuel tank. The Quigley fuel tank is ridiculously small for a big van.



That is coming along nicely!

We'll be in production late Jan. Won't work on a Q van though since they add the big t-case adapter and move the tank back. You'd have to change the output shaft and add a truck t-case adapter to make room.

Not yet. We'll be starting with the bolt in sending units, I believe the 92 has a slide lock style sending unit.
