1973 J4000 - FSJ_Daniel

1973 j4000

My dad purchased it about 30 years ago and has owned it ever since, i turned 16 and wanted it and so then i got it and started doing the mods to it, im 18 now almost 19 and i have loved ever moment of this truck, i have to say its the most badass 1st car you can have IMO

Anyway on to the mods, its got the big ol' 500ci Caddy in there, dad put that in about 12 years ago now, its got a 6 inch alcan lift kit on the with some 6 inch travel Rancho RS5000 shocks and as well a RS5000 Steering stabalizer, Has some 35x12.5x15 BFGoodrich A/T's mounted on some shiney 15x10 Chrome Nomad II Cragars steelies. Still has the turbo 400 and the dana 44's front and rear with 3.07 gears, these were all rebuilt about 8 years ago and now has about 52,xxx miles on them, the exhaust is straight piped, none of the enviromentally friendly stuff on there. The paint i had done at a great paint shop and they pulled the code under the hood and gave me what i got now, i dont know the name of it because it doesnt have a listing in the service manual and a brand new windshield oh and the goodies for the musical people i have a 12" polk audio sub with a ported box and a 1400W amp to go with it and matching 5" door speakers

Future mods:
Rhino Grill
2-3 more inches of lift
k&n air filter
BFGoodrich KM2's 35's or 37's not sure yet
Possibly putting the white 2-tone back on there
redoing the bedliner
3.52 or 3.73 gears

2000 Infinity QX4, 3.3L, MPFI, 4 speed auto, 2 speed Nissan tcase, Unibody, IFS front, 4 link rear solid axle with 255-70/16s


...Pay no attention to these heathen barbarians with their cutting torches and 8" lift kits!...
