205 linkage problems will give you front wheel drive only
the top most rail doesnt get pushed in far enough when you go to low range
it is proabably fine, just not getting fully engaged

sorry.. soo much goin on in my life the last feew weeks.. been crazy...

well not much for pics...im in the middel of removing every rivet on the donor frame and replacing with bolts and my own crossmembers.... the frame is in great shape just needs a lil love in the rear section...

HEAVY METAL

hey dean why u swappin all the rivets to bolts? easier to replace if broken?


couploe of reasons...i am working on bare frame.. easier, the rivets over time when wheelin come loose which cauze the crossmemebrs too become loose and eventually tear, when it come time for next frame i can just unbolt everything and add it too the next truck.. ie my custom crossmembers, rock sliders etc...

Kinslayer
05-15-2007, 09:32 AM
Bolts are way stronger than rivets. The only reason they use rivets is because it's easy for a machine to do it, and they are 'good enough'.
