Got the transfer case in with no cutting

I can't shift it though, so I'll have to cut one for that

And this is a first for Florida, I only have a front driver shaft , most trucks down here haven't had one in years

My floor also turned out to be in very good condition

The wheels will be bronze. I took a pic of a wheel that I sprayed a small section but you cant really see it that good.

Are those like 12 ga stamped sprint car beadlocks? I wouldn't run them on anything 4x4 personally, especially when you can get them for around $50 per wheel on the board here.

Yeah something like that, I was just thinking those would balance better than heavy 1/4" steel

I'm looking into rim stiffeners also, I have reverse centers so I wouldn't benefit too much with bead locks. I think they are probably my best bet

On a big Interco bias balance is not going to happen well regardless of the beadlock. A 1/4 thick lock will likely balance just as well really though since it's a balanced pattern all the way around. It's the tire that doesn't balance. If it bothers you, fill it with airsoft or golf balls and call them good.

I wouldn't run those. Circle track guys around here fuck'em up all the time, even on the shit boxes and Modifieds. Lightwieght- yes, Strong and what you need -no.

Don't those go on the bead that your supposed to weld the beadlock too. Or do those sit inside and leave room for the beadlock? I'm thinkin either non beadlock wheels or H-1 style wheels.

The rear is going to go up a little bit and the front will be lowered some

I'm not sure what I want to do to the front bumper yet either, either a stinger and the two supports or something pre runnerish like this





Heres the stinger

Bought these lowering shackles on ebay

Can't go wrong for 45 bucks, the bushings alone will cost me like 20 bucks

I'll probably box them

I have been running the janky looking Beltech "lowering" shackles in the "flipped" orientation on my trail rig for the last 4 years and have had no problems at all with them. They seem thin and cheap at a glance but hey, they've held up just fine and I havent done any extra bracing on em.

I know you're well past this point but hacking the floor to move the t-case up would probably be worth the effort. I clocked the shit out of my case but quite a bit of clearance can be gained with an unclocked case too. My truck was previously a 2wd too.

I think I'm going to go to an np241 and I'll need to clock it up so rocks cant get to it.


I've got some more crap done though, not much though, I've been lazy. Mostly stuff you can't see, like transmission cooler, wiring, alternator, power steering, brakelines

Here is the ride height after the shackles, the angle is perfect now

I think I'm gonna try to pull a leaf out to lower the front

EDIT: I need to get more bronze paint also
