i say its tool ate to ever figure of converting your 4x2 back to stock, so might as well just bite the bullet, spend a couple extra bucks and do an SAS....

just a note, wouldnt have getting a 4x4 94, then doing a 5.0 swap with a body swap have been easier? i htink i answered my own question ;)

WINCH!


Just got back from trying out the new selectable tcase. There was a lot of snow and it was the nasty snow that you can't get traction on and you just sink up to the skid plates.

It started out with two Explorers (me and my buddy. Buddy is 100% stock V6 4WD). Ended up running into a group of 7 others (1 Sami, 3 SA Toyotas, S10, Ranger, T100). Every single person got stuck at least once. The T100 was buried. So was the S10. And of course they were blocking the trail to get back down the hill. It was a lot of fun though.. sorta. :D But the 4LO worked great. But I am going with a winch here soon. It would have made my day (and early evening) a lot more fun!

A couple pics:

The Zuk and the 3 Toyotas were. The T100 was a hazzard.. so was the S10. And my buddy's stocker Explorer on street slicks was a little out of it's element. :p

Warning: Extremely Ghey Video...

Oh yeah.. there was body damage too. The S10 was getting yaked out by one of the Yotas.. slid into the winch plate with the non-functioning winch.. and put a nice big ol dent below the tail light. It was a pretty nice.. newer S10 too.

Is it just me, or is shackle on that yota in the last pic just hanging there, not connected to the frame?

It has the funky leafs sping setup. Where the front of the leaf is mounted to the frame... but the rear is mounted to another leaf deal.. that is sorta hinged... to allow for more droop. :confused: :D

I don't know. How much HP does a stock T100 have (while buried in the snow)? :D

Looks like a lot of fun. Where are you planning to mount the winch?

Keep up the good work! :)
