NISSAN Hardbody Rock Crawler with a body lift, Solid Front axle.

I spotted Ernie in his 91 Hardbody. He did all the work himself. He is a Nissan Expert and works at a mechanic shop in Santa Rosa. He was kind enough to let me snap some pictures of his rig.

If I remember correctly, he used a Ford front end and narrowed it to match the back. He had a welded rear differential and an air locker in front. He had headers and a cone air filter on the VG30. He said this made a big difference in low end torque.

But first, lets pay some bills:

  1. Narrowed Ford solid front axle.

  2. A look at the narrowed axle and the hi-piñon front differential. He explained that to me, but honestly I didn't catch it.

  3. Looking over my rig to his rig.

  4. A better look at the lifted 1991 Hardbody King Cab V6. Good work, Ernie.

  5. Next I sold out to make 02¢ so I can fulfill my lifelong dream of owning a 1986 944 with blown head gaskets.

    But no minivans!

  6. Then I finished my beer.
