Really enjoyed reading this build so far. Keep up the good work. Nice seeing another Marylander. Subscribed! Makes me kinda regret selling my CJ7 (stock), but still thankful for my TJ.

Does anyone know off hand what seals are needed between the tranny and trans case? Auto Turbo 350 trans, 205 trans case. This will be my first time pulling it apart.

You should give it a try sometime. Great place with all kinds of terrain. People that run the park are second to none

Northern Maryland (almost PA) in Carroll Co, work in Baltimore Co though. Would like to try Big Dogs out but want to trailer it down there (don't have trailer yet). Rausch Creek is alot closer and is about 1 hour and half compared to I believe over 4 hours for Big Dogs. Either way would be cool to go wheeling.

Bedwell, you have to be close to me. We are on the south side of hanover just over the line.

Boarder, if you want to check rausch maybe we could meet up and go. It would be neat to see two old jeeps there.

Bedwell, I have to trailer my rig anywhere now so I feel you! I gott get the rig fixed....get some tires under her and what not. I just got a line on some H1's with internal beads with worn 37s for $550 plus shipping. I got pics of them. I told the guy no but am still considering. Thoughts?

I think I read you are going to run a 14 bolt in the rear. I would think 37's would be the smallest you would want to run with an unshaved 14 bolt it you will be dragging a lot. I'm not sure they would be worth it, no offense to anyone, since the guy on rausch wants $1000 for 5 h1s and 5 42" tsl tires that are 90% tread. Just my .02

between the two should be a dry connection, the trans has it's own fluid and so does the t case.

100% agree, unshaved 14 bolt and 37 will net similar ground clearence as D35 with 31 (or so I recall)

also there are deals out there, last summer, two friends both bought a set (4) 42" iroks for a grand each set, one set were stickies, both about 90% tread.

Yeah I agree they should be a dry connection....but they are very wet right now. The seals between the two are blown and I have tranny fluid in my transfer case and vice versa. So I don't know if a standard 205 transfer case rebuild seal kit will have what I need. Figured a gear head on here would know better than anyone else.

I'm already running a Dana 60 front and a 14 bolt rear. So ground clearence has become the issue with the 14 not being shaven. I have a buyer for my 35's and should have those gone by this weekend. I thought I had a buyer for my new rims but can't seem to get the guy on the phone. I couldn't find the 42in TSL's with 90% tread on Rausch. Plus I'm two hours from there so it would have to be planned. I am waiting on a guy to send me pics of his MTR 37's that he wants $500 for 17in rims. I would just need to find 17in rims for cheap at that point. I have adds eveywhere I can think looking for tires are rims and trying to sell all the things I don't need!

Just incase no one has seen them. I have a set of 5 Powder White Steelies from Pro Comp. 15 x 10, 8 on 6.5 brand new 3 week old rims! I will let them go for $325 or trade towards 17's, H1's, or 37in, 39in, or 42in tires.

when i replaced the seals in my tranny and t-case, i just figured out what vehicle they where in from the factory. then went to a parts store and got the seals. i dont know much about the chevy trannies and t-cases so i cant help whith what years they came out of.

as for the tires i would really suggest 39's or bigger. not trying to get in your business but from my own experience i have done enough dragging with my 14 bolt and i am running 42's.

No I definately hear the advice. I am looking for 39's and higher but have had little luck on a great find if you know what I'm saying.

Thanks for the detail! My 5 is somewhere back on your tab 3. You've saved me a few hard lessons to be learned.

Love the fuel cell under the tub. I didn't want to give up the back seat. (kids)


Bet motor pool loves you.

Yeah its understandable! I appreciate the your vote! Its been a long hard build (Thats what she said) but it will eventually come together. I am still stuck after all this time and money spent but thats Jeeping. I just need to take a step back...save some money and buy stuff that I know I'll be running for years like an atlus and hydro assist. Just sucks that I won't be able to run her on the streets after that.... Oh well you either love cruising or you love wheeling hard.

Oh yeah I'm offloading my spare tire as well. I have a brand new Good year MTR with Kevlar which is a 35 x 12.50 R 15 LT that I am selling for $250. Since these have been in such high demand Goodyear can't keep up with stocking them. I am being told there is a nationwide shortage and there won't be anymore available until September. If your interested PM me

Well I emailed PSC with the information on my rig and here is what they suggested. The SK100 kit or SK115. I can also send my gear to them for porting and save $150.00-$200.00 on the kit.

They said a Borgeson BOR0009100 will fix the shaft issues.

Anyone have any experience with these kits? I'm completely in the dark when it comes to steering. From what I have read about the Borgeson component that should just drop right in but the full hydro assist is night and day.

Suggestions?
