Wheeling Piggy is a blast! The V-8, 6.32 granny First of the T-18, 2.0 Low of the Dana 20, 4.10 factory axle gears, and 31-inch tires make this thing an absolute torque monster. The Motorcraft 2100 two-barrel works surprisingly well off-road, although the engine is a little hesitant to start on angles when shut off. The suspension is pretty shot. Piggy needs new shocks and bushings. We’re willing to bet these are the original shocks. The entire drivetrain is coated in something that looks like black brownie batter—ancient road grime mixed with oil residue. The axles, tranny, and T-case probably still hold factory-original gear oil.
