How much time/money do you have? What are you looking to gain?

A diesel swap will cost significantly more than refreshing the original drivetrain. The only real net positives are fuel mileage and torque, plus simplicity if you go for the Zombie Apocalypse proof all mechanical diesel.

I was thinking in this direction when I bought our '92, but the more I think about it the less sense it makes. Recent discussions here have been about LS swaps, and you can swap in an LS/modern trans/TC for about what a rebuilt and slightly upgraded 351 would cost (if you're doing the work). For a usable trail rig, this makes a LOT of sense (though putting a GM engine in a Bronco does hurt a bit).

rebuild *.8 or 9 in install?...TTB or SAS and how to do it ?
Again for a trail rig... cost vs. benefit... I'm still planning 3/4 ton axles and SAS eventually, but it's probably not necssary.

automatic to 5 speed?
Something else I originally thought about, but the auto is easier to drive off-road and in snow, especially for my wife. (See benefits of modern transmission with LS swap above...).

Dragon its not what they say about 10%rs! Its what they say about the other 90% that are still trying to find their way off the trail.

I think the FB club started because of the interest generated here on FSB. i was definitely a FSB'r before joining the FacePlant club. Look here more frequently than on FB.

@Lil' Red

Even tho' i was "right seat" in a toyota,
it was good to get out for the 1st time in over a year.

You Modified guys are going to Enjoy the November run thru Charleau Gap.

I know there is a wanted to buy section but I'm hoping someone local might have them or know someone who has them. I really don't want to pay shipping so I hope you all can help my son and I out. I would even be willing to buy a donor truck IF it is priced right.

I'm looking for a cheap but useable as is d50 3rd member with 4.10 gears. I swapped the 3.55 Sterling for a 4.10 limited and now I need a 4.10 d50 please. Cheapest I have found so far is $200 shipped.

I'm also looking for a front driveshaft to mate between the d50 and bw1356 behind a zf transmission. The one I had seems to have grown legs and walked away.

This is a budget build so I would rather put money in your pockets before I buy from a store/vendor


I drive a truck cross country so I'm only in Arizona 3 days a month. That's why I can't get to the pick a part. Plus I would rather help a private seller before a business
