So about 2 years ago I picked up a pretty custom and almost finished burb, I was able to work a deal for it and it came home with me... well, like any project, things snowballed very quickly with the truck, on the way to Elsinore new years day I hear a pretty loud knocking, I pull over and before I can shut it off it shut itself off, motor wasn't locked up, buuuuut it definitely didn't sound right, so I have it towed and that's where the trouble began, I've never seen anything like this in a stock application before, after some serious research and talking to the guy I bought it from, he rolled rod bearings into the motor since he was in there replacing the upper pan gasket, that created all the issues. I bought the truck with the intention of getting the ac working, getting the 4x4 working, making the gas gauge work, and putting the 11.5 in it. Here's a few pics of the destruction and some of the build along the way...
