WOW!! Just read the whole post/history, what a treat! Skill, craftsmanship,abilty to re-do "no big deal" attitude and (again) skill...very impressive..and actually using BettySue (I am guessing mmmbeer plate a little too noticeable?lol) absolutely great! Only thing I noticed, maybe some insolation over wheel well? Since lines are so close and MORE PICTURES OF ADVENTURES!! Thanks again for the entertainment on this coldcovidwinternight!

Thanks!

Thanks! I am adding insulation over the wheel wells, just haven't got to it yet. I will when I build the under bed slide.


.....................................

Sorry I haven't posted a update, but here we go.

Wife wanted a bench to sit on. And I moved the water pump switch from under the bed, back of the van, to under the sink. That way I can just switch it on and off when needed. A round USB plug is next to it.

I also moved the power center up front for easy access too. I didn't take any pics of the mattress in, but it's in now. I'm still waiting on the custom order blinds to come in so I can build my window frames out.

Before:



After:



More to come when I finish everything.

Looks good!
Funny how we constantly want/wish to change things around to suit our desires... and the "what if's", "why not's", & "just because" upgrades always seem to spawn additional projects - it truly never ends.

That's no lie.

Finally got the van on 35". I still have one leaf spring left to install, shocks, and transmission. But it's getting there. I picked the best time to do this. It's freaking freezing here.

I was gonna rebuild my transmission, but decided to go another route to finish 4WD.

I ordered a extension housing from Quigley. It makes the 2WD transmission bolt up to a NV271 without a rebuild.



I have to pull the driveshaft to check the spline count of the tail shaft. It's either 31 or 34 splines. Either way, I have both input shafts to match it.

I'm waiting on the rebuild kit for my NV271 to come in. Should be here later this week. It seems complicated, but rebuilding a transfer case is VERY easy. If you can change your brakes, you can tackle this job. It's one main shaft and a selector fork. And a chain with 2 gears. The secret is, a good set of external snap ring pliers. The MATCO P24a pliers. They're $40, but it will save you a lot of headache.

What did the Quigley Adapter cost roughly? Thanks!!!! Can't wait to see your progress!!!!
