    getting my truck awd ...

    ok guys never posted too much since my computer had broken down but anyways ive got a 88 s-10 with regular cab short box ... i wanna make it awd just liek the syclone ... i know all the process and all ... but for now i cant find a frame 4x4 off a reg cab short box 1st gen

    so i will take a 1st gen frame 4x4 reg cab long box shorten the frame or take the back part of mine to fit on it ...

    so my main question is how much time should it take to remove everything that is on the frame ... box, cab, fenders, engine (350), tranny gas tank .......


    thanks alot for the help

    It wouldn't take that long to strip a truck off the frame....

    Pull the front clip all together, pull the motor tranny together, pull the bed, drop the gas tank, pull the cab..

    Should only take a weekend...

    for the front end do i have to get the fenders by their own off and then the grill and the rad support or there is a way to bring it all out in one piece ? i dont think so but just curious if i could save time there


    one important fact is that i will be working in snow at -20 celsius not sure what that is in ferenheit ...

    so all i will remove will go on 12inch cube blocks ( i mean one on each corners )

    exept for the drivetrain that will go from one to the other directly

    Fenders/grille/coresupport/etc can come off as one item, just unbolt everything from the firewall door hinge area, and then undo the bolts holding the core support to the frame, and then have a few buddies help you hoist it up and out of the way.


    I replaced a transmission in really cold weather on a tennis court at my old apartment house.. if you're motivated, the temperature is just an obstacle.




    and post pictures
