    Cory's Cummins swap.

    I started this actual build at the first of march and posted it on another forum. Just trying to get yall caught up now. Some post might be of me replying to the original thread since im a lazy bastard and am going to just copy and paste the thread over here.

    Recipient:
    So i picked up this sweet rare 84 Dodge crew cab short bed juanton 4x4 from a friend about 3 years ago. I got it with the intentions of making a sweet tow truck out of it and now everything has lined up right to start working on it.

    Donor:
    My current tow truck has been a low miles ugly 94 single cab long bed 2wd cummings with a 5 speed. The only things i have liked about it have been the beast of a motor the mighty 12v has been and the interior is super clean. I hate the look of 2nd gens let alone a single cab with crappy paint. Luckily it was cheap enough and i have used it for the last 4 years with all my towing duties that i dont feel bad gutting it at this point.

    Heres the crew cab shortly after i got it. First thing i did was get on ebay and score a sweet windshield visor for it and replaced the roof cab lights. Next i replaced the rotten d/s floor. Other than the d/s floor there is a small corner of the rocker with rust. The rest of the truck is a little beat but nothing im going to cry over. Other than that i have swapped out the wheels and tires with more modern ones that you see later on.

    You had one chance to start this sub forum off on the right foot. And yet you chose to throw a g in Cummins. This forum is no longer any better than any other bro dozer filled mouth breathing, knuckle dragging Neanderthal, sister fucking diesel forum.

    Roll coal, bro

      I was hoping the "g" was tongue in cheek. Think this clown thinks it belongs. FML. Be sure and add some late model mirrors and keep them flipped up as well. Maybe this thread can be the first hgtd

            Last night i gutted the 2wd nv4500. It needs to be gone through before anything can really get done. I will be swapping a gm 32spline 4x4 main shaft into it and bolting a gm NP205 behind it. It will get a new clutch as this one was about on the rivets, it may of even been the original clutch in this thing. The truck has right at 182K miles on it now. i got it at 165k.

              We gutted the tranny and all the oem Timiken bearings look great. Waiting on the 4x4 gm main shaft, updated 5th gear lock nut and input seal, and spacer to bolt the 205 up. i already acquired a gm tail housing and a round pattern 205.

              Im not a Dodge or Cummins loyalist. I like all makes and models and prefer some parts to others. I like the simplicity and reliability that goes with the common rail Cummins engines. I like the interchangeability with chevy drive trains. I love fords continuance to improve and used Dana 60 front axles. I love old shit box Toyotas for around town getters. I wanted a 4door crew cab square body chev for the longest time before i found this dodge. I also love trolling those that are loyalist to a certain make because their daddies dads dads bought one off the assembly line 300 years ago and so does my buddie Brian. Brian had this sticker made for me for Christmas a few years ago and now it has a proper home.

              That time i got stuck in my own drive way in my ugly single cab Cummings. I literally let the clutch out slow and it never even moved in the slightest. I could just kind of feel it sinking lol.

                Far from a Cummins fan boy. I hate all diesels pretty much equally. I’ll run a gasser tow rig until I die. But I never miss the opportunity to call out a solid indicator of “I finger my cousin” when I see it

                  Should i delete this thread and any good potential tech that may come with it then? I wouldn't want to post anything that may cause you to think i finger my cousin. Does this buggy indicate that i finger my cousin?

                    Got the Cummings yanked out last night. All the forums I read said to drop the pan or disassemble the 5 and 6 valve train to get the motor out. Guess they didn't know you could just stretch the cowl a little and do some precision hackery to the frame motor mounts.

                      The buggy is badass, adding a g to cummins is gayer than cum on a mustache.

                      The jegs sticker on the chop saw is a little suspect though

                        Between badass and cousin fingering. . I can live with that.

                            What's wrong with my pics? They look good on my end? Other guy was able to see me buggy pic.

                            Richfield Utah. Yes long bed. There is one slight dent in the bed and a hole for a hidaball, no rust. I'll get pics of your serious.

                              I can see your buggy pic, but not the others. I follow the link and get a login screen.

                              you are too far away... unless I talk the wife into a road trip next month.

                              ill give you beer and let you help me put it on my truck! Lol.
