I love the before and after pictures.  It takes vision and determination to make the "after" actually happen.   Congratulations.  Joe

I'm jealous! I would LOVE a little truck like that to tool around in.

 

  My sentiments as well! You did  "good" Richard.  Well done.

   Your terrain could be in our southwest. Looks the same.

Actually there is quite a bit of head room, several inches over my head. A little tight on leg room, but that might be the bigger seats I put in.

Just to add a few things I've done to fine tune it, starting by adding a temperature sender to the transmission case to see the engine/trans oil temp.

And Dynamat Hoodliner to the hood/bonnet to absorb the engine noises. With foil tape on the edges.

And after replacing the flexible exhaust coupling, I cut the downward exhaust tubes to raise the exhaust a few inches, and added an aluminum skid plate

Then added a fuel pressure regulator to trop the pressure from 3 bars to 1.

and made a marine vinyl cover for the bed
