Default My D21 build "Lil' Ugly"...Enjoi

I'm new to this site but not to D21's. I had a 91 back in 93 and loved it. I always said I wanted another one and a couple months ago, I picked on up. I had the idea of keeping it a completely simple build and keeping it 90's style, but that is slowly changing. So as of now, I'm not exactly sure what direction this build may go. Here are a few pics from the day I picked it up and the few transformations it has taken.


The day I brought it home





Clean interior with low miles





1st bed swap and side mirrors (not powered up yet)




Even though the original plan was to go with 15" pathy wheels (which I did pick up a clean set), decided to go with 18" Titan wheels. Maybe the pathy wheels will go on another build in the future Also installed 3" blocks in the rear and 2" spindles in the front





Here is how it sits now after putting some more work into it last weekend. Did a second bed/rear bumper swap (this one is in much better condition, but still needs a small section of cancer cut out and patched), swapped seats from the donor truck (original drivers had 2 burn holes and the "new" ones are just cleaner), finally got my hands on a full set of 4wd fenders, and pulled the solid rear window out of the donor(not installed yet)




A few of the things on my list to do are leaf spring hanger bolt relocate, crank the torsions, tach clock install, paint (obviously) and a few other small things. And depending on the overall direction of the build, there may be a few other larger items on the list to get done soon

Sweet project, looked like a pretty clean truck to begin with. Nice additions.

I would love that instrument cluster! How do I get a hold of one of those, and can it fit inside a square dash 91 d21?

Like later 90's dashes. And no it will not fit in the square dash. It's called a round dash swap. There is a how to in one of the threads on how to do it properly.

4wd fenders have larger wheel openings and wider flaring. They make a 2wd truck look more muscular, as well as adding clearance for wider wheels.

Did you get the donor truck from Craigslist? I saw a black one with titans that was wrecked in the front that looks real similar to the one in the background. How is the rear bumper on the donor?

As a matter of fact I did, but those aren't the Titans that are on the "white" truck
