This is what I had been calling one of the Instagram swaps. This is the first time I've seen anything on it in one place.
Random google search find!
And tiny clutch assembly, with small friction surface area, not ideal behind these engines. Wonder if this is the fellow that bolted a piece of plate steel to the cummins fly wheel to move the friction surface back and allow him to incorporate the rover pressure plate bolt pattern.Interesting. He kept his LT77 transmission.
Looks like yes? Heavy flywheel assy would hurt his mileage. Pic below. Username on IG is rtbmx1And tiny clutch assembly.Wonder of this is the fellow that bolted a piece of plate steel to the cummins fly wheel

Haha! They offer a 12 year car loan to purchase it, yikes!The exhaust, also featuring a Summit Racing muffler, is tig welded stainless steel from the engine back. A hand machined billet aluminum trans adapter connects the new Cummins engine to the original transmission and transfer case.www.ebay.com
I somehow managed to notice the interior on this truck and the fact that it was still rhd....but didn't notice it was a 2.8 swap when it was first listed. No mention of the trans/tc so I think it's safe to assume lt77 and 1.4.
One things for sure. Its one of those things that if you do regret doing it after the fact, you won't admit it.It would be nice to see some unbiased reviews including things like accurate fuel consumption measurements. When people spent $20k+ on a swap, it is hard to remain unbiased.
