    Isn't that the vent right behind that hole? Is it a threaded hole? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Where I work, we try not to use anything smaller than 16 ga because of the difficulties in welding smaller. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I got a Question

    Wow, is that a 14 bolt? Wow. FYI, the locker would be replacing that piece. If it were mine, I'd just run it probably. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I don't know for sure, but I would guess somewhere around 18-20 gauge. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Should be. You might occasionally see a 5 lug 60 rear. I got one from an early 70's f100 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Questions on sas swap

    Keep in mind, you can probably swap in a full size t-case and use pass side drop. As for axles, something that wasn't mentioned in the axle list, at least not by my first post is full size jeep pickups. I remember parting out a j series jeep pickup with my dad in high school. It was probably...

    A 79 front axle would have had cast wedges for the radius arms. They are not good candidates for leaf perches like the 77 and earlier were. Check yours, you probably have the 77 and earlier axle which is a good thing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Check your caster. I set mine like that with leafs in the front. My caster was horrendous, but it was to point the pinion at the t-case like your picture shows. I drove mine at 40 once, and it was scary as hell. I did not cut and turn my axles, and they probably had something like 4 degrees...

    I'm late to the conversation, but I really like the stance of that trucks. It's not obscenely tall, nor an obvious trailer queen like mine was. It's like a subtle sas, with just the right amount of lift. That's right where I would want one if I built it for daily driving. What size are the...

    My advice, Skip right over a normal D60 rear, they are not at the same level as the fronts for axle shaft size. If you want 8 lug, think 14b or D70. Both have larger shafts, the 14b is going to be cheaper. If you can find a semi float 60 rear, they will sometimes have 1.5"+ shafts, I've seen...

    Leafs can ride just as good, and are completely fine for daily driving, maybe even more so. The only real thing to worry about is shackle angle and maybe caster. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. It's Alive!

    4wd SFA
    At this point, I'm not sure I can even talk my wife into letting me get a pickup, let alone build it into a wheeler. It's just a low priority for both my limited time and limited money. We're buying a house too, which will soak up both of those. The good news is now my oldest boys who are 4 and...

    The point of them is to prevent the springs from turning into S shapes. The ladder bars try and force the energy that would normally load the springs, to be converted into propelling the vehicle forward instead. They also commonly help to reduce the "hopping" that occurs then the springs are...

    Geometry is not critical on ladder bars. Except for where the pivot point is. The above example was built poorly, because the pivot point is not the same as the springs. Adding a shackle to the pivot point gets rid of this issue. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Depending on which axle you use, you can even reuse axle mounts if you build the radius arm Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Getting to the original question, in my eyes, radius arms are basically either a 3 link or 4 link, where the upper and lower links converge at a single point. If you use a "wristed" arm on one side, it's the same as a 3 link. All the jeep guys that run "long arm" kits are basically converting to...
  20. Door removal question

    4wd SFA
    Old thread, but here is what I did. I used a piece of 5/16 round bar, with a shaft collar on top. The bottom was drilled for an R clip. It took about 10 seconds to take the doors on and off. It was a little loose with the door open because I removed the little plastic bushings. Once the door...
