No pics yet but this weekend is theeeee weekend I'm gettin started on the ole binder:party0010:
Heres the rundown:
Gone are the d44 rear and d30 front with 3:55's and shot u'joints
Goin in are fullwidth d60 rear hdd44 front from a late 70's dodge power wagon (thanks Fourplay) they got 4:11's in em so I should be doin waaaaay better for power.
Gone are the old Ford superduty ranchos
Goin in is Rancho rs9000's Looooong ones with extended towers up front from a ford f250
Gone are the 36x12.5 swampers nothin wrong with em just gone
Goin in are 37x13x15 Boggers (thanks .)
Gone are the old 15x10 wheels
Goin in are new 15" beadlocks ( thanks B for a killer price!)
Frame will also be gettin reinforced around the steering box to fix up alittle play it has. Floor will be replaced the stupid 1/4" plate has to go solid but waaaaaay to heavy. The body mounts will all be redone at the same time. I'm also thinkin of building into the side of the tub a little airtight heater for those cold nights sleepin in the back. I'll be puttin on my winch finally as well. All the wheelwells are gonna be cut out and made larger for full stuff front and rear I'm intending on full flex with no rubbing[5]
And of course a cage no crazy jungle gym just a six point with full halo and some cross bracing with no roof at all I need some rain coverage a couple tubes should do just fine:D.

With the wheels stickin out an estimated 4 inches on either side some sort of flare will be needed (not gonna ugly up my chick magnet with conveyor belt)

This weekend it all begins so pics will follow my progress and I'm hopin to be done most of this by early to mid November and if anybody wants to come out and help it would be appreciated (this wont be happening in richmond it'll be in surrey)

Was sleepin when the power wagon got picked up, woke up and saw it moved to the front of my house.. flat bed driver said I have to completely remove the rear axle for him to haul it. Barry and me will pull the axle later today when we get back from wheelin and Sean towin said he'll haul it to chris's tommorrow. Sorry for the delay. He said he could haul it without the ubolts but I guess he couldn't.

Gimme a call later Phil, I should be home by 4pm.

That means this weekend the axles start goin in.

shoobear
01-23-2008, 07:34 AM
go for cross over.
I used a wagoneer arm. Its way shorter than the scout one.
Flat top knuckle with a OTT arm. Got some high angle tie rod ends and had the rod made from some bearing stock. Just clears the spring pack.
I will run some chevy springs next year so i hope it will still clear.

epic3
01-26-2008, 10:53 PM
No ghetto pics today but the truck made it into the shop and a few more things got checked off the too do list
1)Rear driveshaft is shortened new ujoints and in
2)Front brake lines are dealt with a touch short at full droop but in so I'll either use limit straps up front or get custom lines made I guess
3)Big hole under the battery is now patched
4) perches welded for the rear and pinion angle set

whats left to get it going?
Rear brake lines and e brake cables installed shocks mounted fronts are easy bolt in rears I gotta install some brackets I made front driveshaft fitted and installed grind the calipers but not till I test em and steering needs to be solved.
I thought I could just do what was done in the dodge I took the axles out of but my steering box is too close to the J-arm attached to the driverside knuckle its almost ontop of it


sooooo I'm thinkin reaming out my knuckles so I can use a waggy tie rod and attach my draglink to it like in a waggy ( I think ford does the same) untill I can afford to go hysteer and crossover

But its getting close
