Depends on what sort of winter we have. Still have to rewire the entire thing and plumb the brakes, raise the rear and tons of little crap. I'd say there's a 75% chance I can get it to the KOA. 100% if it trailer queens At least all the 'heavy' stuff is paid for and done.

Ideally, I'd like to run 36/37" millitary take offs, but for now these 38's should be ok. I think they're far too heavy and wide for non-ram assist steering..and THAT's not in the plan. Won't know till I drive it. I'd also like a spool for the rear, or perhaps Lincoln Lock it.

I need a wench that can wrench! Thanks! I posted a thread in Offroad too. Your hangers are awesome man!

And hey, anyone reading, I had a pair of 2" wide 1" lift perches Tad sent me for the original build, I'd be happy to pass them on for the cost of shipping.

I have a SOA thread in Off Road with the latest crap. Basically trying to scrounge up gas money to go fetch a 4" DPA I need to set up the steering. I'm going out now and seeing how these new springs will bolt up.

Well...got em on. I'm wondering if I messed up with the spring front to back..I put the little eye in the front, big eye to the back. It seems pushed forward.

I need to get it on level ground and try and flex it out some...but I think this is pretty darn close to how the monster is going to sit.

Not sure if the 3" lift I was going to try in the back is going to be enough..I'll slap the 2" blocks I have now in and maybe it wont look so redneck ghetto







Maybe it's ok, hard tell, not like anything is OEM lined up anymore.

The long end goes to the front but since you are going to have to get drive shafts to fit, it may not matter. Reckon it depends on the steering link. I like that stance.

It has a pretty darn nice approach angle like that. Think I'll leave it that way.

No mulah in the budget for any different tires right now. But thanks too Flint, I have a DPA to install tomorrow perhaps

Looks sweet Ryan! But what are you going to do about that pinion angle?

I dunno..haven't checked it yet. I did mention the option of tom wood's high angle offset ujoints if it's too untenable as is.

Check your caster angle while you are at it.
If you can keep the caster angle in check you may be able to shim the pinion up.
I was able to go with 6* shims and still keep 3* of caster on my D60, good pinion angle and still drives fine on the interstate.

Are you kidding, when was OEM ever "lined up" on these rigs?

Love the build up.
Did you ever get the rear fenders mounted?
Did you go with the original squared fenders from the thrift side bed, or the round ones of a M715 to match the front?

Just an update..I haven't touched this since fall..I no longer live at that house, or with my family, but my jeeps still do. I'll be doing my best to finish the truck, although I would sell it to a forum member if anyone is interested. But the good news is that for the near future, it's ok there. So..hopefully I can get it running this spring, eh?
