Get the 4" pipe on there and route it out to the very back of the truck. For whatever reason, 3" has been louder for me.

Use a straight-thru muffler or none at all. I've found this to be the...

47RH swap is the logical upgrade (94-95 2ndgen trans)... its the a518 with a lockup convertor. Its does require the 2ndgen flywheel housing and matching starter though.

Measure the wheelbase vs what the tag says. Also how tall is the frame channel? 6, 7, ot 8"? Those are probably your best clues as to whether the doors & nose have been swapped, or its a pickup...

In broad strokes... the 2nd gen tank isn't that different. But its also not a direct fit. I plan to use one in my '75 to get away from the in-cab tank. I think its 5gal bigger too.

That sailun pdf says the 16" sizes are for trailer applications only.

Where the LT tire falls short is at full load with the scrubbing of tandem/tridems. Torquing the tires sideways is really hard...

I'm not sure of the pros/cons of each.

What does look intriguing is rocker-beam or walking-beam setups... but seems to be limited off-the-shelf solutions. Good reading on building trailers...

1. Inside the timing cover. Main thing is having gaskets and tools. The tab itself can be improvised. Covered in lots of write-ups.

I deleted the hinge, cylinder and latch (thrashed) when I swapped them from my RC to the pickup. Anyone that can fit in the back of the clubcab has to be skinny and athletic enough to crawl over the...

The wheels can be centered one way or the other. Not both ways. The hub is a few thousandths smaller, maybe even a ~1/4" smaller, to let the tapered seats do the job. 16x6" or 16x6.5" wheels are...
