What have you done to yours? Anything custom goes here.
11" brake upgrade!!
It is hard to say what the coolest mod will be on mine as it is still a project and there will be many custom mods throughout. My guess right now will be the 4.8L Chevy Gen III Vortec engine.
Not sure I would pick just one - over the years the OD, 11" Brakes and Saginaw became a requirement, and I love the V6. The 'just playing' resulted in the D30 Discs, SM465, and the OX Lockers pushed me to the FF Rear.
Besides 'accesories' like sliders and racks the only thing left to 'play with' is FI. Haven't done it yet (on an Odd Fire) and am curious.
Same for me as Warloc PLUS notched rear wheel wells so I can slide my Honda seats back. My knees don't cramp up any more. Hollbruck springs are near the top of the list too.
Since my m38 is a stock restore, everything about it is cool. I am putting a civvy pto winch on it however.
OD (but that came with it) so T-18 4 speed.
tough to pick my favorite. Top 5 are saginaw swap, 11" brakes, Summit heater, wheelhouse notch, Sahara seats.
Yep,to hard to pick just one. Saginaw steering,11"brakes,lift springs,V-6 are the top 4 for me.
LOL - I have those too so that my PRP suspension seats fit nice, the Holbrooks and R9000 take the 'bump' out of the ride

Holy mackeral! I forgot about the lockright lockers D25, D44, also 2Lo mod, sure helps with a locker in the front diff.
When instaling my front and rear ARB lockers I didnot want to use the switches they give with the kit.So I got my self An Eaton Fuller 13 speed shifter Knob off a Semi Truck.I ran the locker air lines to the shifter it has two switches so I can run them seperately.The other cool thing I did was installig a toggle switch inside the shifter this run my hill lock.

Getting it running
Besides that saginaw is pretty good, and I like my cage...
And the dual winches (front electric and rear pto) is pretty legit...
Dual res MC is nice as well.
Does a Coca-Cola cast iron bottle opener mounted in the center of the spare tire carrier count?
The biscuit Fenders
Tuned Port FI 350! Runs upside down and it's fun to see peoples reaction when I raise the hood on the old GPW. Narrowed 44 front axle out of a military ambulance with almost inch thick wall tubing is pretty cool.
231 v6 Hydroboost, 11x2 rear, disk front dana 44s curent project is onboard air. Then wider front fenders.
I vote Yes
