1 Ton 1971 3 door suburban with 1973 454, TH350 tranny, NP205 w/PTO knockout and Ramsey winch, dana 60 w/truetrac, 14 bolt w/clutched and spring pack Eaton posie to act more like a real locker w/out driveshaft play. Was planning on adding a second transfer case so axles were geared w/4:11s. This was built to go anywhere so it's not meant to be looked at, it's meant to be used. If you're looking for something to enjoy looking at please keep browsing. That is unless you have a body you want to use (to much work for me). Frame is in great shape. Skip to the cons if you want to know what needs fixed. Pictures of pto/wench are not this vehicle, they are just to show there was a factory pto option back in the day. Also comes with a rear heater but not currently installed. I also have the a/c radiator and condenser for it.
Please understand I am in no rush to sell. Please don't bother sending me an email expressing your opinions, just move on and save us both the time. There has been a lot of time and money dumped into this thing over the last 25+ years. I've just moved on to other projects that make this one obsolete now. Front axle alone is worth more than the asking price.
-Motor was originally built by renowned master engine builder and has about 40k miles on it (see cons for current issues).
-1 Ton axles w/locker have about 5,000 mile on them.
-PTO knockout (rare) and Ramsey winch.
-Hot rod headers w/flowmaster mufflers.
-New high flow Electric fuel pump.
-New 1 ton breaks (rear was left as monster drums for towing).
-Brand new set of AutoMeter gauges to match original (speedo and gas left original but still match new set).
-New 120+ amp alternator.
-A lot of the original wiring harness has been replaced including 2 AWG power and ignition run around the vehicle for electric fans, lights wenches, etc. Relays were used to take large power load off the original switches for lights, horn, etc.
-Monster 2 stage electric fan with cut switch for river crossings.
-4" lift, new springs Pro comp nitro shocks and bushings all around.
-40 gal gas tank.
-Ram air style intake that was going to turn into a snorkel.
-Nice steel 16" wheels.
-CD player w/6" coaxial speakers (4).
-Have original seats but currently the front bench seat was move to the middle and it has bucket seats in the front.
-Engine was originally built with flat tapped cams and was not used with zinc treated oil which caused the lobes to wear down slightly and not fully open. It still ran like a dream but I made the mistake of paying someone to install new cam and rollers while I was out of town, shortly after break-in it developed a knock and was parked due to lack time to work on it.
-Body is in about the ROUGHEST shape you could possibly imagine but was meant to be that way so when you plow into a tree or rock no tender feelings are exposed, just added character.
-PTO and winch are not installed yet and missing some of the carrier bearing "mounts". Only the mounts, I have the bearings. Planned on tucking winch in bumper so would be custom anyway.
