    James Duff Radius Arm Pics

    For years I have searched and searched to find good pics of the JD radius arms to only find one or two under body shots. I finally droped some dime and got my very own set. I'm hoping to get the other suspension components off and have them all coated black. My undercarrage needs a littel TLC...

    No 4wd

    I finally got home from the desert and went wheeling with some friends. After trying to climb a hill I have conqured before, being muddy, I couldn't make it. Before leaving, I was "dared" to try it backwards. After goosing it a bit in reverse (knowing I wasn't going to make it) I heard a very...

    Able to use my QD's again

    After the combination spring and spacer lift on my Ex, the swaybars wouldn't fit anymore. I cut the old sway bar mounts off, grinded them down smooth and relocated them to line up properly. I had a friend do a quick weld to hold them in place. Now the bumpsteer is virtually gone when...

    vent lines are important

    A while back in mid Fall, AlaskanJack and I did a little wheeling up at Jims Creek near Knick Glacier. While going down the trail to the 4wheeling, I remembered I didn't ever put a vent line on my front diff. Of corse I realized this after going through some puddles that were over my hubs...

    2 - 4dr driveshaft differences

    Had to ask! Couldn't find the answer by doing a search! I have done the rear SOA to my '93 2 door and the driveshaft is near seperating. Will the 4 door driveshaft of the same year model be the right length to make up the difference. It will only cost $75 for it compared to $350 for a...

    Rear wiper won't shut off!

    Since I went wheeling the otherday, the rear wiper will come on by itself with the switch turned off. When I was down-jacking the rear after getting unstuck with my hi-lift, the jack pushed the wiper arm up but didn't break it. It just cycled through and came back on the rest stop. Since...

    For those who have GM tow hooks

    When I bought my front gears, the salvage yard threw in a set of GM tow hooks. I just went to install them but I found out it wouldn't be as easy as I thought. It seems that the front bumper will be in the way. Will I have to make some notches for these to work properly? I can see a good...

    Front end clunking

    This noise started after I installed and removed the F150 spacers. When I hit the brake really hard, and sometimes when starting I hear the front end bang or clunk (really loud). I made sure the radius arms were tightened and they were. I think the bushings might be worn though. Will...
