Default 75 Travelette 200 (Project Hereford 4x4)

Hey y'all. I haven't been active on this forum but some of you have probably seen my builds on the planet. Thought I'd share my travelette build here as well. I picked up this beast last spring. It's got a 392 and 727 auto. As you prob know already, all 74-75 travelettes were 2x4s from the factory, and the frames are different than the 69-73 d series. After a lot of questions, head scratching, and staring at this truck I've started on the 4x4 conversion. I started by removing the complete coil spring fa-7 front end. It wasn't easy, but I left the motor in place. I picked up a 74 200 4x4 Travelall for parts. I used it's engine mounts, and the u-shaped crossmember that the 74-75 4x4's have. I also picked up a 78 furd hp Dana 60 and a furd NP205 t-case. I'm using a wfo front spring hanger and ruff stuff shackle hangers which will mount through the old strut-rod holes in the frame. I pulled the rear 52" springs out of the Travelall and am using them for the front springs in hereford. They sit pretty flat and should be flexy. I'm really slow and have a limited trickle for a budget but I think this rig will be awesome. Thanks for looking and feel free to comment, give advice, and encouragement. Cheers, caz

Welcome to the forum. Looks like a worthwhile endeavor. As to your sideways pics, you need to rotate them 90 degrees using whatever desktop image viewer you have, then save that as a new image. Then select that edited image rather than the original to upload to your thread. The pics will display in whatever way the camera was oriented when the shutter was clicked. The awesome moderator power that I wield does allow me to edit images by copying and saving them to my desktop. I was able to rotate one of your images, but I'm just not sure that the image quality would be maintained on my end, so I stopped short of modifying it for you. See what you can do on your end first.

Thanks, trevor. I'll try that. How about posting images in the text, instead of a link?

Yep, that works more guuder. A little more involved process from what I recall. It's been awhile since the last time I did it, but it does create a more user friendly experience for anyone visiting the thread.

Still trying to figure out the nuances of this format. Bear with me.
