Darksider's Realm

(this is not a place for lazy video game freaks. We Darksiders have been around doing our thing for decades before the mindless couch blobs latched onto the term Darksider)



DARKSIDER In the world of automotive hobbyists a Darksider is one who modifies and or customizes any and all sorts of vehicles. The Darksiders are in a class of their own simply because they endeavor to be different and do things that others would not attempt for a number of reasons mostly being related to a lack of ability and fear of non conformity.

This is a forum for people who think outside the box in everything they do. It doesn’t matter if you are modifying or building from scratch. It doesn’t matter what brand or brands of vehicles or components you are using. It doesn’t matter if you are working on a mini car or a bus.

We will not be asking you for donations or any kind of monetary payments. We will be asking for help in terms moderators and encouraging you to spread the word and add to our membership.

    Willys 4x4 wagon

    Post  DL BOGART on Mon Nov 08, 2010 11:36 pm

    Well that's what I hope my next project will be. I am trying to make a swap or trade with a junk man for a basketcase one. Plans are for a Ranger/exploder frame and 4x4 running gear, not sure whether to go 4.0 or v/8. I was a lifetime ford hater until 1) I bought a $100 ranger for a work truck, 2) Ford didn't accept the "stimulus money" and subsequent govt takeover. It's hard to get the G.M. ideology out of my head though, I had many good years with small block chevies and r series oldsmobiles. Still drive an 02 gmc crewcab for a "family car".

    I made a deal to swap an antique metal lathe for a willys wagon, along with more junk for a 4.0 ranger to use as a donor for suspension etc. Now to get the daughters dollhouse built for Christmas so I have room to get it in the garage.

    I went to see about getting the willys out of the yard, and decided I was not willing to trade my lathe for it after all. the drivers side was pretty decent, but I had not looked at the passenger side nearly enough. the b pillar is pushed in, the door is fubar, the windshield frame looks as though they put a hook in it and picked the whole thing up....The donor ranger has no trans or transfer case. I may still get the 4.0 and harness to put in my '87 ranger in place of the worn out 2.9, but haven't been able to find out if it's still in running condition. It had been covered, but the wind blew the tarp to shreds, so now it's out in the open with a rag stuffed in the throttle body.
