12-18-2006, 12:03 AM
does tyson think his is going to flop???

12-18-2006, 09:32 AM
no he will flop no doubt about it

12-18-2006, 09:57 AM
I just came to the realization that it is pretty cool that I can come in on a monday morning and check out pictures over the weekend of buddies who've rolled their vehicles over and laugh about it.

12-18-2006, 05:29 PM
yea, it is just a matter of time, once i get the front locker and the swampers it will probably be more likly to happen

12-18-2006, 11:33 PM
ur locking the front........................... dont do it.

12-18-2006, 11:55 PM
sure do it. Just make it a selectable locker, not a weld.

its a suzuki on 31s.....

12-19-2006, 07:13 AM
looks like a big oops but gooder times

12-19-2006, 04:49 PM
why not lock the front?

12-19-2006, 05:24 PM
sweet [15]

12-19-2006, 07:06 PM
The reasoning behind not locking the front (permanently) is simple - imagine you are on an off camber hill and your front end is locked - you hit the gas and your front end lights up - instantly no lateral traction on your front end and you slide down the hill.

12-19-2006, 07:48 PM
yea, but there are upsides as well. I'm getting a lockrite in the front so if that happened, push in the clutch and I have my steering back. The plan is to run with only one hub locked in and if I need/want it locked then hop out and lock in the drivers hub. But with the weight of a suzuki im thinking that the steering shouldn't be too bad, might just only un-lock one hub on tight trails.

12-19-2006, 07:53 PM
that would work too I guess. I'd think it's a giant pain in the ass though - I'd get a lockrite for the rear and a cable lock for the front for money savings, otherwise just cable front and rear.

Fuck, or you could just get a spool for the rear and giver.

12-19-2006, 08:28 PM
i have a detroit ez locker in the rear and then getting a 3pin lockrite front. For us sidekick guys there only front options are weld, lockrite or ARB. I don't want welded because when going down a hill i won't be able to turn even with the clutch in. ARB is WAY outta my price range and that leaves the lockrite as my last option.

dont lock front because its a suzuki on 31s:D

12-19-2006, 11:10 PM
i need to get as far as i can, locking the front is just another way of doing that.

meh, chains won't help if one tire is in the air spinning and then one on the ground isn't turning, maybe locked f&r with swampers and chains :D

12-19-2006, 11:16 PM
lock it up!!!!

12-19-2006, 11:17 PM
well heres a question this thing going to TTC or something..... its the challenge dont make everything so easy then it wont be fun to wheel it anymore. wheel in now. wait till u get ur LISENCE then lock it if u deside u have to if not. get EAT BY EXPLORER.

12-19-2006, 11:20 PM
it still wont be easy to wheel that thing, it flex's but nothing crazy. it will flop. proubly before mine flops

12-19-2006, 11:22 PM
haha, im getting tcase gears from trail tough and paying 50 bucks for shippiing so i might aswell buy the front locker so i don't have to pay shipping twice. there are hard enough trails in okanagan area that will still be fun even if im locked in the front, a few feet of snow and any trail is fun because im not lifted 12" with 40's. I want it too be streetable and still as capable as possible without spending alot of money. ohh, i do have a L ;)

12-19-2006, 11:23 PM
hahaha and you will have that L for what another 11 months

12-20-2006, 12:05 AM
Here's a question - where the hell are you going that you can't get there with a samurai with a locked rear and open front?

the only way to "light up" the front is to also "light up" the rear.
all the wheels are connected so you cannot spin one without spinning them all
in the same situation an open vehicle will be in more trouble

12-20-2006, 07:52 AM
weld it up then push it over a cliff

12-20-2006, 08:09 AM
well, in mud, locked front would be sweet, or in snow with your tetering from a front to back tire, just the rear locker isn't enough to keep you moving, i just think it would be nice, it is only 300 bucks anywho.

Jake: Naww, i think i will keep it

12-20-2006, 12:30 PM
good pics!!!

Explorer guy418
12-20-2006, 06:32 PM

12-20-2006, 06:47 PM

12-20-2006, 06:49 PM
hey hey hey....... i know a guy who wheelin his ifs with 36s and did fine.. its how u build it.. and drive it the guy said. in tysons case.... he has a weedeater motor so not much shit he can break.:) anywho back to the original post. :D

Explorer guy418
12-20-2006, 06:52 PM
i admit SAS is better.. but ifs can be good. im going to be runnning a full ifs lift.

12-20-2006, 08:09 PM
yea, i have no power to break parts, i know a guy running stock sidekick driveline with the front locker and 34" swampers and not break, and he giver hell.

ok, back to my original question, how much damage after that flop?

12-22-2006, 05:21 PM
nothing brings friends together better than beer, fire, and turn a vehical right side up!!!!!
