If I get my hands on one definitely, I've only made one set of sliders for a Gen 1 before and it was a long long time ago but they turned out nice. I'll keep you posted, if I get a local to go for a set of bumpers and sliders I can just make a double order and you'll be set.

I pulled the skids off the Gen 3 to be drawn up in solidworks and a trans skid designed for both Gen 2 and 3 (not sure why Mitsubishi left those out.

In the works, we've got some simple bumpers for sale right now but a different style is on it's way.

Yeah for real, my underbody guards are rough and greasy. Was thinking i'd just contract a proficient to make some diamond plate guards to the Gen 1 specs.

Gen 1 4G54b 2.6l that is mounted to a 5 speed manual KM145 can be pulled and replaced with a wideblock 6 bolt 4G64 block with no bellhousing mods or any other save for electrical and fuel adaptations. I'm Working on a 4G64 2.4l block + 4G63 DOHC cylinder head. The cylinder head will need to be cleverly layed out as the RWD orientation of it conflicts with the firewall of the Gen 1 (so I've heard) then again I am lifting the body 2" so maybe not.

How about a AC compressor to engine powered compressed air and tank on board for the Gen 1? It'd be truck-ception as you could take apart the truck with the truck using pnuematic tools.

What about a Gen 1 underbody drawer system/underbody armor? like two drawers of equal width between the wheels on the driver side and the passenger side. Put supplies for whatever in em, tools even. Ball bearing drawers similar to tool box kind.

What about a tube storage system mounted to the back spare tire bracket? It could be circular or square. the square idea would hold 9 pvc tubes for storage. The tubes could even be modded for specific use as in one tube could be for water storage or as a cooler. make a simple valve at the bottom to drain out water. The tops could be threaded to easily screw off a cap to the tube. I think of this idea as a 'missle pod' or pods kinda rack.

Alternative gauges would be nice cosmetically as well. My ideas tend to apply mostly to the Gen 1 as that's what I own and am building.

It'd be really great if there were performance and durability minded transmission upgrades for the km145 or transfer case as well. The tuff pan is great but surely more could be made. Hell if it's not made by the time I'm done with my motorsports engineering degree I'll see what I can figure out and model on solidworks and ansys

The Gen 1 alternator puts out I think 50 amps? Its poopy low though compared to modern alts that put out the 150 amp range (im pretty sure)
Daisy chained 2-3 batteries secured down in the back of the truck and wired up to solar panels on either side of it.
Throw in a hard switch to bridge the power and it could suffice to start the truck in a bad spot or power auxiliary stuff like a TV or a raspberry pi mini computer.

Mini computer like a raspberry pi might also be helpful and efficient for use as an mpfi, efi. Id really like to have one for this purpose as its way way less expensive and more powerful then oem ecu's or that instrument gauge box. It would even be possible to have a setup using a mini computer to just watch the engine operations and have is own freak out signal when it has a measurement like oil pressure drop lower then a set value or higher. The possibilities could really be endless with a mini computer on board

I'll look into alternators, I know which ones to swap onto the 3.0 but I haven't had a 4 cylinder rig in a while. I think IncorporatedX has a mini computer something or other in the works.

I can't speak to the Gen 1, but I know the Gen 2s (6G74) can use alternators from the 2003-2006 Hyundai Santa Fe 3.5L since it's basically the same engine and those alternators are 120 amps vs the "stock" 85 amps.

Regarding Bumpers maybe making adapters so that you can use commonly available bumpers from other vehicles like Cherokees or similar sized vehicles would be a good offering, for both front and rear.

If I get my '94 SR running again I'd be looking for bumpers, winch mounting, dual-battery mount and some roof rack options.

Aluminum drawers in a box, same height as wheel humps, drilled to bolt to factory seat and tie-down threaded holes. bolt tiedowns to the top. Allow for optional plywood deck to go all the way across. maybe a hi-lift mount on the side, it'll fit between the box and the fender.

Oh, how about a bracket that replaces the idler pulley on the 2.6 and fits up a York compressor and a belt tensioner? Or just a blank bracket with a centered shaft hole and base holes/slots to adjust alignment.
