What is your profession? (not required, just if you want to share your knowledge)
IT admin (in training)
I am a natural born potato picker in Boise. I grew up working on cars and have been in many automotive trades. Now that i am getting older i just want to wrench on my stuff as a hobby, not someone else s shit as a career. My love for Nissan minnies started with a 63 620 truck but soon gave it up for a 720 style. Thats right i have driven a 720 truck for 9 years now and i can still say that i love it. I spend time snowboarding, snowmobiling, 4Weelin, mountainbiking, taking care of my 2 children, Time with my wonderful wife and wrenching on friends, family's and my own shit when i get a chance.
How many 720's or other Nissan trucks do you own? What years and types?
I have had two 720's. My first one was an 84 that i notched out, custom 4 linked, and bagged. It was pearl white with blue metallic flake. Then it got totaled in a hit and run down town. Three months later i bought a new 86 for $600 bucks and am currently starting over.
What modifications have you done to your truck(s)
Lowered with 2 in blocks and minus some leaf springs, i dropped the front with the torsion bars. 17 in wheels with two inch tires. A 2000 watt stereo system that kicks ass. My custom interior from hideous brown to Black and Grey, and olds alero seats. I plan on putting a VG30et Turbo motor in it this winter and possibly another 4 link with bags. Hope to re paint it red but with silver flake in it this time by next summer.
What modifications do you still plan to do to your truck(s)
finnish it soon
How many miles would you travel to attend an all 720 truck meet?
Sorry man, I just seen your request...haha! Yeah I'm in Garden Shitty. I will let you know if I need anything...I find most parts at Jalopy, but if I can't find something I will let you know. And if you need something let me know. I would like to see your project in person sometime...looks like a badass build!!! I bought mine on CL for $800 so as you can imagine it needs quite a bit of work to get it where I want it, but it's coming along.
Hey bud, I'll get some pics when the weather is good, its lousey here at the min, been crap for days, I didn't do the work it was done before I got it, they did shorten the chassis and the bed is about 2 ft shorter at a guess, it now measures 4ft by 4ft, I did not see it at full length but at a guess it was 6ft by 4ft originally?
Hi there Seth, awesome truck bud, I am converting mine with the same engine, non turbo thought, I wonder if you could give me some help ith the wiring, how did you mate the wiring harnesses, did you do a wiring diagram for how to do this? Any help would be appreciated bud.
