Yeah I'm thinking on that one. I'd love to make a steering 9" but that is pretty pricey, but so are the Dana 60s in my neck of the woods. My setup right now is working really good and I don't think I would change much before UA. I'm thinking next year some links in the rear with ORIs would be badass and maybe a beefier front axle with some 40s. I have the smallest tires by a lot in the dirty dozen

Hell yea man. Sounds like you made it to the dirty dozen for UA, that's awesome!

What's your opinions on the Atlas after all the road and off-road miles? the 203/205 setup in the ranger is really effing noisy and doesn't really have all that great of a low range.

I'm glad I finally nutted up and went atlas. Great on and off-road. Shifts great. I got the 4.3 and with my granny first it does great for low crawling and I swap around 2nd and third for the in between stuff. I think if I went 5.0 it would be a touch to low and I would be going in and out of high and low all the time

Great Moab pics! Looks like the truck did well, broken hub the only casualty?

For my truck that was the only issue. The suburban lost 2nd and 4th on the way to Moab, so he found a trans while we were there and we changed the trans one night in a campground parking lot. Then the burb broke an axle shaft and called it quits. I hauled him out of cliffhanger and he found a trailer ride home.

Nice build!! I'm starting a Ranger project myself.

So I see the pic with it lined up to climb out of the Devils Hot tub, did it make it?

No I got denied. I winched up though. Some videos should be coming soon. I needed lower air pressure and in hind sight I needed to backup more in the hole and hit it from farther back. Plus my distributed slipped and I called it quits

Does anyone have experience with a link bracket like this? Some good sales this weekend and thinking about using a bracket like this.

use it and post up.......i am looking at them too. i assume it is for the rear? i want them for the front but the leafs do get the job done on road very well, especially at freeway speeds...been playing around a bit in west virginia and wellsville recently and i do think i am ready for some more travel and a softer ride off road. and real fawking lockers....way overdue for those.


what trans in the burb?




i would not have used a rear axle that was not full float. i am really surprised by that unless your keeping the power level where it is and maybe tuning down a bit or something...dont remember what injection system your using at the moment. of course with the sane tire size, your deep in the comfort range with what you have. very smart to stay with the lighter axles based on your breakage so far.

again i am jealous of your weight. you have done an outstanding job in that department...though with wb and distribution i think it also had an effect on the hot tub exit. i have wanted to run my rig through there for decades and am glad you checked it off the list of shit you built it for!

my truck is 6k. that is cruise to work weight! its a fatty!! with the big diesel in there i dont have room for too much up travel, but i plan a cage similar to yours and some custom rails to alleviate that issue and tie it up for max strength and minimal weight.

there are 5 main rbv here i watch careful for the executed results and this is one of them. thanks for taking the time to post this shit!

Thanks for the compliments I really appreciate that coming from you!

Yes I am going to link the rear as the next big project for the truck. I think I am going to pull the trigger on those brackets and I'll post up how well they workout for me. Plan is triangulated 4 link in the rear with coil overs and ditch the coils up front for some coil overs up there as as well. After wheeling a week straight in the rig, I was feeling pretty beat up and getting a smoother and better performing suspension is on the top of the list now. Also I am hoping with the links and coil overs I can get a bit more stability in the rear.

I am using a MAF setup and some larger injectors. I have been pretty happy with the power and torque I have right now so I haven't had the urge to mess with the engine much. It dynoed 330 hp and 390 tq at the crank. With the atlas, 9 inch with 4.56 and the 37s its probably significantly less at the wheels, but my parts have been surviving.

I think you hit the nail with my weight bias too. The wall coming out of the hot tub is massive and steep, having 1000lb bias on the front end doesn't help powering up that. I have been trying to think of things to do to equalize it a bit, but aside from hacking the cab apart and moving the engine back I can't do much to make a significant impact.

Yeah we had the 4k drone and like 4 go pros with various gimbles and mounts. A couple of the guys on the trip have a youtube channel and are putting together a video for each day. There was a ton of footage so it is taking a while but it should be cool when they come out. I'll update here and post a link when they do
