I think I might've seen you driving on 97 the other day. Is your truck the one with the chrome rollbar and all the lights? And was that dual exhaust I saw? What engine do you have in your truck right now?

Oh yeah, and a guy named mudrunner just did the whole 350 conversion about a month ago or so, so he'd be the one to talk to.

I can't tell you what parts you're going to need, but 4.10 gears are perfect for a 350 so if you do the motor at the same time as the tires then that shouldn't be a problem. Definetly check out mudrunner or callan's trucks to get an idea of what's involved in the swap.

Oh yeah with the 350 you won't have to change your gears to run 35s I do have 5.29s but am planning on running 38s.Also with the 4" lift you will have an easier time doing the exhuast.Mudrunner went to 3 different shops or more before he could get exhuast made with out an 4" lift.

Oh, on the exhaust thing. For my 4.3 I got it done at Speedy Exhaust on the highway, right by rocky mountain fitness, accross from london drugs. It's 2" dual, cost $400. Really tight job, looks good-took the guy 3 hours.

Just because the next guy has frosted tips, an earing, and a jeep doesn't mean you have to!
89 Toy p/u, locked rear, 4.3l on propane, still ifs. Work in progress

My 21\4" exhaust cost the same except form Jerry's Muffler.I had suspension lift which made it easeier but still also took 3hours to do.

my buddy is selling the bolt-in motor mounts, advance adaptor headers, and 700r4 to toy transfercase adaptor in the for sale section under my name. He also has the custom 4-core rad your gonna need.These are all for a 350 conversion. He doesn't have a computer so give him a call 604-454-7329 ask for Stu.
