Hi-

We were just wondering if the "Doghouse" is able to be removed seperate from the cab of our 1986 S10 4x4? Or do both have to come off as one?

Thanks in Advance,
Mathew

i wasn't aware that any s10 had a doghouse,now if its the floor console(the one wit the 4x4 shifter on it) then theres 4 screws on it, just take those out and lift it up, but i'm not to sure what you are talkin about as the "doghouse"

Ya we need more info on that one. Do you mean the whole front clip or maybe the extended part of the cab?

Sorry bout' that...
We were just wondering if the complete front clip, including everything from the firewall forward, is able to be removed? Or does the complete front clip have to be removed with the cab?

Thanks,
Mathew

Fenders forward can be removed in one part, yes... (This would be a front clip...)

Thanks for the Info!
We are currently in the process of removing the 2.8 V6 for a rebuild, and we have decided to remove the clip to paint the frame. Are there just a couple of mounts on the underside? We have already located the front two body mounts..

Take Care,
Mathew

Front body mounts, rear firewall mounts (inner fender, through doorway, under cab in front of door), and upper fender mounts... Once these are loose simply remove everything attached to the front clip and remove...

Being a van owner, I can tell you that that's not what doghouse means. Doghouse it the access panel in vans and other vehicles where the hood is very short. It's the area where the transmission tunnel is. For example, I change the dist. cap from the floorboards of my van. PITA by the way, take 2 people to time the sucker.

In body shop terms, the dog house is the fenders, core support, hood, grille, headlights, inner fenders, etc. all removed in one chunk. Unbolt the body mounts on the core support, unbolt the fenders from the body, unhook the radiator and any wiring, and lift it off.

Just FYI.

We appreciate your help on those terms motley!
For the time that we have been messing with pick-ups the "doghouse" has always been the term we have used for the front end, including fenders forward.
Either way, we finally have the complete body off of our S10 and were now stripping the frame of its rust...

We appreciate the help from all of you..
Mathew
