Taxxman's SAS

Well since everyone and their brother is starting an SAS thread I thought I would start one for mine.

According to the Fed Ex tracking number the Scout steering box is sitting at my house waiting for me to get home tonight. My 44 is sitting at a shipping dock waiting for me to drag the trailer over there tomorrow to pic it up. I'll get some pics tomorrow or Wednesday.

I am putting a Dana 44 from a 76 bronco under the front of my truck. It will be coil sprung and steered by a scout steering box.

Little by little there is always something. Its not a pavement princess so even though I am a perfectionist at times I am trying to hold back and let a few things slide. Functionality over looks.;)

"form follows funtion" as my pottery teacher used to say.

its what i live by.

you better load us up with some pics from this weekend. I havent wheeled in a few weeks so im getting the bug (dora is at the ford place again - bad ECM)


btw - im headed your way later this year to see my relatives. i migh tlook you up and may be we could go wheeling.

my great grandma is in Evansville, cousins in Princeton, other cousins in Hoosierville, uncles in Michagen City and rest of them across the line in Illinois near Tera Haute. We normally stay with friends in Louisville before we head into corn country so may be I can look you up. I may or may not be in the explorer, depends on how she is running.

Good to hear, hope everything works alright and the rig does good on the trail! By the looks of the pics I'm sure it will. By the way where are you going?

unfortunately not. Only update is it wheeled well in 2wd once i got used to it, then last week something started vibrating bad and the t-case is bleeding so my next step is to crawl under there and figure out what is vibrating in the rear and fix that leak. Then I will mess with the fron shaft. Hopefully this weekend. ALl that is left is the front shaft and lifting the rear a bit. Plus lengthening may trac bar, it is about 1" too short.
