Indeed this little truck has seen some heavy hard usage as you can tell by the damage on the fenders and cab it takes a beating and keeps ticking. its been laid over on both sides in water deep enough that it came in through the doors climbed over some pretty steep stuff and shows no sign of slowing down... thanks for the comments

if your changing the gearing you might want to go a little lower for those 33's, and I believe that truck already has 4:10 gears, but anyway its a nice yoder

I inherited this from My older brother Monte R.I.P. The first vehicle with a stick I drove. I learned how to drive a manual with my brother and this truck on dusty dirt roads of Nebraska. Monte did alot to it since we first went and looked at it. He bought it on the spot for 1500. It was pretty clean then but it has had some good hard usage since then. He built the flat bed for it him self. He also put 31's Micky's on it and a auto locking rear end, a 83 motor/tranny/gear driven transfer case in it as well not sure what else he did.


22r engine with a Marlin Crawler L52 Heavy Duty transmission.
NGK plug and wire set. Heavy Duty drive shafts. 31 Micky Thompson.

Factory Options

DLX cab, 5 speed manual tranny, 22r engine.


We Rebuilt the front drive shaft with heavy duty u joints. We put in a 1200 pound marlin crawler clutch with a L52 marlin crawler heavy duty tranny. Looking to put 4:88 gears in it with a mild cam, headers/new exhaust so i can run 33's Goodyear A/T and a marlin crawler craw box "double transfer case" There's other plans but those will come later when we get the first things on the list done. I also did a few minor cosmetic things like installing a semi functional hood scoop "hole in the Hood but not hooked up to air cleaner" and a few fog lights 4 i took of the brush guard my brother installed so i could put on a HD bumper the lights will go on that.
