i can't believe i missed this one....anyway, m.i.t. has my rear axle because i decided to find a way to fry the stock lim-slip clutches to the point that my spider and side geard were chewed up by all the pieces of metal floating around! but they are putting a locker in there after my failed attempt to do it myself, and also a nice burly diff cover with the stud girdles and all that. boo hoo
I finally got my pics uploaded to the website. Sorry it took so long, I couldn't remember how to lower the rez on the pics at first. Anyways I put a link to my Truck Haven 2005 Photo Album on the first post.
Colin, I got those Pics e-mailed out to you tonight also.
Can't wait to get everyone back together for another run.
Okay now some of those pics might actually do t haven justice....pucker factor is HIGH...rollercoaster style
Matt your not getting any idea's here are you? I know the inline six is tempting but step away from the Jeep:
I can almost hear you say "look how small that air intake horn thingy is on the airbox, how does it breathe?"
My daily driver is a 01 Wrangler Sahara while I do my 5.0L conversion, its a fun little Jeep with alot of balls! I will give it that, it also seems to go anywhere and through anything...but its really tempermental so I'll stick with my bronco.....
Felix, SAS turned out great! Very impressive for the first trip on the new digs...after seeing it perform what tweaks are you planning?
Tweeks are going to be heim jointed track bar and stearing system. I am also putting together a M5OD swap. Once the tranny is swaped I am going to be getting an Atlas t-case and extending my radius arms w/ heim jointed ends (not sure how long it will take for the atlas to be purchased). I also need to trim my front fenders big time. Along with leveling out the rear of the truck like 1.5 to 3 inches will fix it.
Other than that a front locker is a must. That will be purchased and installed within the next few months along with the stearing and tranny.
Acutally i was looking at how the motor layout was. That is the same motor (98 4.0) that we swaped in to tracys jeep. Just trying to see where everything origionally went verse were we put it cause it would fit.
