Re: [Project] Clean Start

I like the way the front axle is a little forward of the centerline of the wheel openings. Will there be bigger meats eventually?

Re: [Project] Clean Start

Eventually, I'm shootinng for next month, hopefully in which I will also have the parts to make it 4wd again. I'm still shopping for what tires i want exactly, its a tough decision balancing something good in the snow, that wont sing on the road, and doesnt wear super fast, but isnt so stiff that they dont grip...

Re: [Project] Clean Start

I could take that damn truck apart blindfolded. We'll see what happens.

What has to be done to get your 4wd back to functioning?

Re: [Project] Clean Start

Truck looks odd. Why is it so high in the air? You should slam it and try to tuck some big tires.

Re: [Project] Clean Start

I used 3.1158. Never realized that 4x4's had different mounts. Makes sense I suppose.
