i gessed it was time i started showing you guys what i have been up too.

my plan is
NISSAN FE6TA
445kg dry
6925cc 108mm Bore 126mm Stroke
235HP/173KW @ 2800RPM
and the best bit 647NM @ 1400RPM and over 520NM at 900RPM

keeping the STD truck Nissan box gives me a built in equivalent of dual transfers

I only picked up the motor last month & orgnised the chassie witch arrived for the long weekend

the 2 bodys that will be cut to make a mid wheel base sitting on a LWB chassie that has been shortened & had the ends cut off by 100mm front & 120mm rear to push the front & rear over hang to nearly nil

so far all i have done is made up mounts for the front of the chassie/body +65mm iv also cut the front off a wreck to wield on & extend the bonnet 140mm so i can fit it all in. have started the mounts for the gear linkages to sit on the chassie so i can run the remote shifter for the 6SPD & started looking at how to put a safari transfer case on the back of the box and have the adaptor in getting made up now.

also just organized for a mount strap to be bent up for me out of 200mm wide 1/2" plate to sit under the sump come back up across the top of the chassie & wrap around the sides to be wielded on & use the factory Nissan MKB210 mounts in the front i will then fab up some heave duty mounts for the rear using the factory mount peaces along with 3/8" plate.

currently the plan is for 40" trepdors & 4.1:1 ratio diffs

the rear diff is a HJ260 model out of a MK patrol with the short side cut off the housing (MKs are off centered) and a long side off another wielded back on in its place to give me a much wider track & full floater axles

im still unsure what to do with the front diff tho, open to suggestions.


the start of it all



by lunch time



by the end of the day.

wow that's a bit rich, mate of mine drowned his 05ish troopy and killed the motor, got insurance payout for a writeoff, bought the car back for 5k and then rebuilt the motor, had like 15k left over!
glad everyone was ok though, can't wait to see the finished product, going to go hard with the truck motor!
they go well enough in the truck when empty.

This should be an interesting build, keep the pics coming.

I was always worried that would happen in my old shorty, always felt unstable on the steep steps. Glad to hear everyone was still alive afterwards, that looks nasty.
