54 3600 mountaineer awd chassis swap " mountain cat"

I started a new thread seeing how the mountaineer wasn't complete. I'm now using an aviator chassis http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...d.php?t=717927

I hope I'm doing this post correctly. This is my first post on this forum and the first time to post a build. 1st I'd like to thank this forum and everyone that post so much useful information. I can not thank all of you enough! In return I'm going to do my best to post my next build. Which is only my second build. Saying that I just want to say any advice and consideration about this build is truly appreciated. So here we go!
I lucked out and found a 1954 3600 caterpillar service truck on CL for $500, the guy was clueless. I talked him down to 400 before I even made the drive to go see it, once I saw it I gave him the full asking price of $500. I also found a wrecked 2002 mountaineer awd at a auction for another $500. So far so good on price. My 1st build took me 10 years and $30k. My goal on this one is less then $10k and less then a year to build. I know I will need yalls help! To start off I'm just going to start with tearing it apart and see what I have to work with. I also have a wrecked Tahoe that has a 5.3 to use for hp. I really would like to add a turbo to this one. I pick up the mountaineer Tuesday. I'll post more pics soon. The mountain cat build has begun!

I can't figure out how to post multiple pics at once?

I also got lucky and found these fully functional gauges on CL. The back still has the original inspectors red tag on it.

The cleanest original floor I've ever seen. I only had to patch one rear corner

This is one of the fenders that looked like the cab before a little clr and buffing with cutting compound. At one point someone tried to touch it up with a different yellow. It's been a challenge to save as much original yellow that I can. I will be leaving it to its original Yukon yellow

Welcome and Great find on a new project..not sure how your posting but on mine when I post below this box where I click submit it says "manage attachments" when I click that it gives me 5 spots to choose files..when I click those it takes me to my pic gallery and I click the pics I want and then hit download..and all the pics go to the post...I know some can load more than that on a single post..

If your gonna do a build thread you might want to move this to the project and build section..

what a great and weird idea to use the mountaineer, I am very interested in this!

I like bright paint jobs too, yellow, orange, kawasaki green, especially red. I used to have a yellow truck and some of my friends had the others, we used to all park together and take a skittles picture.

Cjcolbyjack: I did the same thing when I started mine a few years back. You'll have to start over and you will be able to download 5 photos at a time. Great find!! Looking forward to the build. dug

What problems are you having with pictures?

I can only upload 1 pic at a time. I go to advanced and it gives me 5 "choose file" options. I then pick 5 photos and hit upload. Once the upload is complete it only shows the 1st pic I put in choose file? Thanks!

Re: 54 3600 mountaineer awd chassis swap " mountain cat"
 
Hmmm.I'm not sure what's going on..are you putting each pic in a different "choose file" location..when you do it should show the picture file number...each time you click a open"choose file" it should let you choose a pic.

I have this problem when I use the IPad. Others do too. Haven't figured a way around it.

And on a computer I am able to upload five pictures. Select first picture, upload it, select second picture, upload it...and so on. Doesn't work so well to select five pictures and upload all at once.

When posting a reply I have to go to advanced to get to manage attachments. Then I have the 5 lines to choose file then upload. I'm sorry I must be doing something wrong. I hope my build doesn't go this bad lol

Re: 54 3600 mountaineer awd chassis swap " mountain cat"
 
Ok looks like you've got one pic loaded..go to the next line that says choose file and add another...and so on until you have several choose files filled...unless your having issues like Doug is saying...what type of device are you using? Mine shows up like my pic above..not an actual pic in the spot...where are you getting your pics from? I have to go to gallery on my tablet to download pics..

mongocanfly 09-06-2016 11:03 PM

Re: 54 3600 mountaineer awd chassis swap " mountain cat"
 
I don't have to go advanced...I just click post reply under the posts and it takes me to that page..your build will be fine I'm sure...I have way more trouble with computers than I do building stuff..haha

Re: 54 3600 mountaineer awd chassis swap " mountain cat"
 
Ahhh...now I see (ipad) at the top of your page..that's the trouble Doug was describing..that counts me out on this one..maybe someone else can help with your problem..I'm using a samsung tablet..

Omg! Nobody said anything about a freaking paperclip! I can upload multiple pics. Whoever sent me the private message telling me that? Now I cant even find how to get back to my messages to see your name, but thank you so much!

Cjcolbyjack 09-06-2016 11:34 PM

Re: 54 3600 mountaineer awd chassis swap " mountain cat"
 
Flip! It's still did just one pic. Chingow!

Re: 54 3600 mountaineer awd chassis swap " mountain cat"
 
That's good to know considering I'm on my iPad! Thank you!
