Ok so I know i've been totally slacking on keeping this updated, sorry here's an update. this is how it sits currently
It runs great, I had to trace a couple intake leaks and some other misc. things but now she purrs. Currently the gas tank is sitting right behind the seat. I plan on mounting it laterally between the frame rails where the stock spare tire used to be. I am not useing the original 12 gallon tank, I wanted to go with the larger efi tank which didn't fit in the original tanks space. There are still holes in the floor but those should get fixed soon and I have a couple of other goodies for it.
Some fox 2.0's I picked up brand new for $100 for the pair from this guy who bought them and didn't end up useing them
The donor truck I bought from my friend included a brand new set of never mounted fiberglass fenders. He bought them and wrecked his truck before he had a chance to mount them so he said I could have them. Sorry Corey, if these weren't free I would've bought a pair from you. Just couldn't beat the price.
I am trying to plug away on my trekker I just have too many things going on, i have this project and I have to part out this t-100 I bought b/c I'm going to do a 3.4 swap into my 3rd gen pickup. I ended up picking this truck up for $600 This old couple owned it and they drove off of the road to avoid hitting a moose.
Oh yeah I'm still looking for side windows and a rear hatch if anyone has some extras laying around. I am going to call the number from that craigslist add in Oregon and see if he still has some parts. I'll try and stay current on this thread as I make progress.
Thanks for posting an update. Thought maybe you had sold it or something. Those fenders were a good deal to be included with the other truck. That t100 for $600 will give you just about everything you need for the 3.4 swap (I want to do one). The old folks made a smart move not hitting the moose. Saw way too many people get munched after hitting a moose when I was up there...
As far as side windows you might want to look at some canopy windows in the junkyards. I have not found any that are exact but some that are pretty dang close that maybe with a little cutting and glass work might work as an alternative. Just a thought..
So there was some crazy coincidence, I called that number for the rear trekker parts in Oregon and he is selling a suburban to some guy from anchorage (where I live) and the dude is driving it up to Alaska towing a boat so he's going to ask that guy if he minds if he hauls the hatch and side windows for me! hopefully it works out, I'm supposed to call the guy on Friday and find out. I'm super pumped!
Thats pretty cool he still had the stuff. I had not seen the ad for quite awhile so I figured the guy had sold the stuff. I need to give him a call, not to buy the stuff, but I am pretty sure that he was a former owner of my Trekker. Hope that deal works out having the Suburban buyer bring him up. Probably worth giving the guy some cash for his troubles. $4.25 or so a gallon in a Suburban....might take a Permanent fund check to get up there!
