Great job on the truck! I love that rear bumper and plan on copying it with a swing-out on my Dodge Diesel.

Man that thing is AWESOME!!! Have you looked at the orbit eyes Deaver springs yet? I'd definatly loose the block but I wouldnt want to have a really arched spring either cause they ride like poop. Gotta be a better combo for a DD/weekend warrior.

I love the Ex man keep the upgrades/updates comming.

Awesome build. I have a 99 v10 250 that I cant even give away. I was thinking about selling my jeep and wheeling it. I know you said you have a front 60, but what did it come out of? Also, what gears are you running? Also, what amount of lift? I looked and couldn't find much. my tuck has a front leveling kit but it is STIFFFFF! I doubt it would flex worth a shit.

My dana 60 is out of a 2003 F350...you will have a dana 50. I am running 5.38 gears.

My lift kit is a 6" kit for a f350 from Icon Vehicle Dynamics....a 6" SD lift is a 8" lift on an excursion

I hope its ok if I keep putting wheeling pics in my build/tech thread

Thursday night, three guys got stuck out on the snomobile trail, so one of my buddies goes out to rescue them and ends up breaking his jeep really bad. He broke a front axleshaft, the rear driveshaft and his winch..this left him with 1 wheel drive..the front diff was welded. I was unable to help out friday night, but they went out again and got 2 of the trucks out, and left my buddies jeep and the worst stuck truck for me on saturday.

First up was getting my pals jeep up a long rocky hill. He was too far down to winch, so i just hooked on and pulled him up....i thought it was going to be easier than it was, but the jeep was usless with just 1 wheel drive



here are the vids so far

Excursion on boggers jeep rescue 1 - YouTube

Excursion on boggers jeep rescue 2 - YouTube

Excursion on boggers jeep rescue 3 - YouTube

Excursion on boggers jeep rescue 4 - YouTube

buddies driveshaft




I then went back down the hill to get the other truck that was hung up in a swamp



we decided to winch him up and out







a few other pics





I've got a few more vids to upload...will post them soon

I like that you post up lots of pics and videos, and it's your own thread anyhow. It's reward for the rest of us who watched your buildup, and shows people what works and doesn't. What's the point of a build thread if you never get to see the finished product doing what it was designed for?

Not enough people post this stuff up, IMO.

Don't know how I missed this the whole time, but it sounds like a great build. I'll have to check the pics at home.

Small tech update

My powersteering cooler (AKA my old tranny cooler) cracked yesterday. I don't know whether it was due to the high pressure pump and cold temperatures -20c, or it was just not strong enough to handle the power steering duties. I didn't think the low pressure power steering fluid had more pressure than the transmission cooling lines, but I could be wrong.





Anyways, I just threw in the stock cooler for now....Im sure it wont get too hot during the winter months

Took the words right out of my mouth. I don't think the low side on the power steering would have anywhere near the pressure to crack the transmission cooler, maybe just a couple psi.

Got my first rescue call of the year.....this was stuck for 3 days before they called me.





Hooked him up to my big MileMarker winch and out she came...it put up a good fight though.


Now it just needs a good carpet cleaning

Thats funny.
The conversation before they hit the hole:

"Do you thing we can make it man?"
"Oh I have a Jeep and it has a "Trail Rated" badge on it. OF COURSE it can make it".

LOL

You should have tried to yank it out with a recovery strap...would have been funner.

His shitty little trailer hitch broke in half when someone else tried to yank him...they had to put a strap around the axle for a winch point
