Dont worry about the pic placement. But if you want to clean it up so its to your liking after you post up you can use the EDIT button at the bottom of that particular posting and once inside it you can copy what you want moved and then paste it where you actually want it, then delete where it was before.

As far as your 6BT goes ... I'M SUBSCRIBED!! You're off to a great start. Keep us updated, with pics too of course.

I'm gonna be picking up my J-truck in short order and after dragging it home begins the slow transformation. My "shop" isnt as clean as yours, but it'll hafta do. I had intended on a 4BTA, but just might make the jump to the 6BTA instead.

Cant wait to see what you have got going on this weekend!

What front springs did you use? Looks like they are holding all that motor up pretty well. You going to go high steer with the SOA front?

Looks like a great build! Good luck. I'd love to swap a 6bt/NV4500 into the wife's truck, maybe I'd stop getting those stupid trans codes then

Camper special J20 springs, they hardly moved when I set the engine in their and seem like they will ride really nice with all the weight. I think those springs had a gvw of like 8400 so I'm not to worried about them. If they do sag I was thinking of running airbags front and rear anyways, a couple of my buddys who did these conversions in chevys say thats the way to go. I haven't got my high steer kit yet but I think i might go with the one from bjs offroad but right now I'm busy with the whole drivetrain set up so that will be last in line.

Here is the engine all mounted up and the crossmember relocated about 6 inches back after I boxed out the frame farther.

I also did the killer dowel pin upgrade this weekend, I didn't take to many pics because there is a million write ups on many forums for the fix. Mine had wiggled almost all the way out it was a good thing I remembered to do it. I will take pictures of the altenator conversion that I am doing next, I got a kit to make the stock dodge alt. internally regulated. More on that in a bit

Question

I'm getting closer to making the final jump to a 6BT over the 4BT and I keep hearing about having to make sheetmetal mods in the engine bay to get the 6BT to fit. What have you noticed with the cab and fenders n such fitting around the 6BT ?

I have takin a lot of measurements and with the 3 inch bodylift it looks like everything will clear but I won't know until the body is actually on the frame. Wish me luck haha, I do own a sawzall and a torch if all else fails I will make it fit.

For the tunnel side to side its ok but the heater probably won't clear but who knows maybe I will get lucky. Worst case scenario I got to get a cab heater. I'm not seeing a problem anywhere else and reading up on the forums were other people did the 6by swaps the heater is in the way and battery tray if u don't modify the air intake which I'm modifying mine to go under the inner fender and through the grill were the light deleted are. Also keep in mind its non intercooled so there won,t be any extra hoses and such.
