    Yeah thats my dads truck, he restores old MIL trucks. We just finished a m38A1 and he has a '56 GMC 6x6 next after i get outta the garage.

    the fenders are sniper fab builder ones. Not to pleased with them and I might ditchem for a fiberglass hood/fender combo. As it sits right now the jeep is 75" tall to the top of the windshield with 4" on the shock bodies (14 travel, 10 down 4 up)

    Do these pics look familiar, lol!

    I've been there and done that and glad it's all over, well it's never over but you know what I mean! There is alot more info out on the net about swaping a GEN III now, then when I decided to do something a little different and swap one in. When you hit the skinny for the first time you will realize that it was all worth it!

    Nice build! Something worth looking at.

    one quarter turn before something breaks is a good torque spec.

    One of my buddies here in MI that works at GM racing told me that i should run about a 24X19in alum rad.. but if i can fit bigger i will go bigger.. The 4L60E fitss really well but the atlas is a bugggger to fit with no skid drop.. But thats what the sawzall is for= cutting the tranny tunnel to fit it..

    Saw the build title and wondered where the rest of the pages of my build went. Theif

    Sweet build, can't wait to get rid of my 6 popper next winter. When you planning on finishing? Stupid question. When you plan on it being wheelable.

    The m37 gets driven around? Was facing one direction in the first picture and then facing the other in a later one.

    Hey Benny,

    I used a 22" wide by 19" tall rad made by "Be cool" with the built in billet aluminum tranny cooler in the right tank. Make sure you know what your buying because there is a lot of aluminum rads out there that are not ALL aluminum. Like a Griffin rad is alot cheaper than most but it's for a reason. Everything is held together with epoxy like the tanks and the cooling fins. Make sure you buy one that is aluminum tig welded so it will hold up and also last a very long time. I have some buddies that used the Griffins and they ended up getting clogged up from the epoxy loosening up and finding a new home.

    I also thought of sinking the rad into the grill! The problem I found was that you would have to cut the hood latch out to it or it would not be high enough. I also ran into a problem mounting it the way I wanted to with it tucked into the grill.

    Anyway I had a problem burping my coolant system and it keeped over heating on my like 10 sec. after it running. When I finally released all the air out of the system the rad has never been hot, warm but no where close to hot!
