The cut doubler case is a 1350M and the full back base is a 1354M.

Alright, went wheeling yesterday, get to test the winch out a few times...and I finally found an issue(knew it would be eventually) but I poped my front drive shaft out, time for a long travel slip or just limit the droop, or both I was climbing a hill and I caught some air going up it, came down and heard flop flop flop...looked out and saw no tire spin, but it was an easy fix.

My truck broke...

my buddy freezing, fixing it for me



So on to the temporary solution

I have never checked how much engagement I have in my front shaft, it just never gave me any issues until now. But after seeing it apart I saw I had very little and since I pushed my axle forward about 1.5" I almost need to lengthen it too. Plan is to make a new one when I do the doubler so I just need something to work now. So I was in the garage and just happened to have a couple front shafts laying next to each other, one out a Ranger, the other out of and Explorer.



bottom one is the Explorer one, the top one is the Ranger one. Notice a difference between them?? I did...




the explorer slip area is about 1.5" longer. So my plan is to swap the front slips around and hopefully I will extend my shaft about 1.5", which will give me more engagement and should be a good temp solution until I limit it and build a new shaft. Here is the shaft on my truck as it sits now

Some work done, changed steering up a little.








You get the idea, but it is all 3/4" heims, with 3/4" bolts. The pitman arm is still cooling at work so it isn't on, but it will be a 5/8" bolt in double shear. The tube is 1.5" dia 1/4 wall DOM. All the gussets and tabs are 1/4"


I also swapped the Ranger slip out for the Explorer one, seems like it is gonna work.

its junk right?? Fawk it, I'll still update


Steering did great saturday, no isses.

Something broke in the front pig...and I developed a funny squeak.

Good news, locker is fine, everything looks to be in place.

Bad news, ring gear is broke.....F'n yukon gold.....


and I figured out my squeak, not sure how I made it driving around not noticing this...


My brake line running down the radius arm, split in 2, did it on some rocks. My brake was dragging since it wasn't connected anymore. Maybe I need to figure out something better for that, normally it runs on the inside towards the top of the arm, something must made it twist/rotate down..... Funny I didn't lose my brakes, least I had something going for me!

Still, lots of fun, got one vid of me getting some body damage, nothing else to show really

I'd run the line where you had it again, but tack weld some small angle iron on top of it to protect it, and hold it in place (isolated against rubbing of course).

Even better yet run it like you had it with a little piece of channel layed on top of it so it's protected on all sides.

Hey man I haven't seen this thread in a bit since I was in northern Kent which the internet is still new and scary there... Truck looks good bummer about the ring gear, is it under warranty? Love the double shear pitman arm.

Alright, I think it has been long enough, time for an update!

Well after waiting 4 or so weeks to hear back about my warranty on my gears, unable to get ahold of anyone to find out what the fawk was going on I decided to just go ahead and buy the stuff to build the HP 44. So I ordered up new gears and carrier, then picked up some 1.5" dia DOM for a new tie rod, some weld in bungs and a few other odds and ends an got started last weekend. Still don't know about the LP gears, but o-well, maybe I can sell them if I ever see them again.

Anyway, finished it all up today, looks good and drives good too.

here are the pictures!

full width...little off center, bout 3/4", shoulda spend more time centering it. I might have the adjustment in my heims, other wise I can shorten my track bar to fix it, O-well, it'll still wheel the same. The front is about 2" wider overall than the rear, I will run it this way for a while.



New to me HP





Limit straps I just put on, 18" long



My fix for my brake line guard, 1" angle. Looks good IMO and should work great.



Then just a few so we all remember how it looks....beat and bruised






Next on the todo list is put the explorer axle under it, inboard the springs, lose the blocks. I ordered a 8.8 ruffstuff diff cover and axle swap kit. I am also in process of making some new spring hangers. Gonna start this in a few weeks.

Thanks for looking!

Nice build, I like it. Another mentioned this earlier in the thread and I will again. Work on those radius arms some more! I have seen a few brake built like yours and seen several pics online as well. Dont want to take a chance with your little co-piolit in there!!! I would suggest sleaveing them and filling in the "C" area with some plate. BTW, great flex from a streetable rig! Good Luck.

Good to see some more Michigan boys on here, rockin the Rainjuhs.

I just got inside from working on mine....outside in the 14 degree weather = the SUCK.

I used to live in Traverse City, and a lot of your wheeling pics at Twisted Trails and the snow wheeling pics look familiar. I miss it up there so much. Quite a bit of wheeling, without a really long drive.

Did you redo any of your wiring harness or reroute any of it under the hood when you swapped bodies?

Your right, I should......but I don't feel like doing it, lol. One of these days I will probably get around to it.

Thanks!

Lots for Rangers in this area. And, I am ready for SPRING TIME!!! SIck of this cold, non motivating weather.

Yeah, I wheel at Twisted Trails and ROcks and Valleys mostly, fun places to go.

As far as wiring, the only thing I 'had' to do was move the battery since the hoops were in the way. The body swap, and harness swap was plug and play. It was a 93 into a 93.


Thanks for looking!
