So,
Eric says he needs to install a set of gears in his tunahoe.

I am willing to donate a set of axles he needs so he can have 4x4 for the potatoe run.


who is going to help him, so he has no excuses?
I would when i come up, but won't have the time OR the right tools to do it in the back of the bush pig.

I am sure tuna can find a good mechanic some where.

I'd write more but I'm installing a 13ton gearset.

He needs front shafts installed? He used to have a jeep, jeep drivers can do that shit with their eyes closed

he doesn't have the front axle shafts, I'll have them for him on the 18th of feb.

He needs gear help.

He didn't ask me to put this up, i did it on my own accord

If I remember the quote from Tuna months ago when being razzed about his "invisa" axles, "No point putting it together without a ARB or Detroit, I just wouldn't be happy with it". So who is donating the locker [f]lol

Pretty sure i have everything to make it work. Was just missing the inner axles cuz we modified the diff.


Jer was nice enough to offer a homeboy hook up ( aka loan) of a couple inners to get me through till i pay for the ones a good friendof mine offered to sell me.

As for the locker... Sometimes plans change due to circumstances.


I dont think 4wd will happen before potatoepotatoepotatoepotatoepotatoe but ya never know... Maybe just maybe i might be able to get that ring/pinion and carrier installed and then slide them inners in at potatoepotatoepotatoepotatoepotatoe.


1st thing 1st though im scrambling to earn some cash so i can have the exaust done.

The factory set up is single and the collector sits right where the diveshaft should be..

I have a pair of Flowmaster mufflers and some pipe.. Just need a couple flanges to cook up to my stock manifold and is a Straight run to the rear wheels with tons of room

Well i have some progress to report.


The exaust is done.. Now have a clear path to run the front shaft.

So now it's just gears and shaft.. I have the gears pinion and carrier and possibly a drive shaft that might fit......

Sucks u couldn't of had that part done when it wasn't in the truck a lot easier to do it on jackstands in front of u on a chair then under the truck if yea don't have a lift. Its not hard just time consuming and sometimes just luck if yea don't need to adjust anything. Did u buy the install kit that comes with bearings and shims?
