And yes it gets stuck too. lol


It was pretty flexy too for a 104" wheelbase, yes thats a 65" tire on top of a 65" tire.






oops how'd that get there lol

They were an expiramental shock made by Fox but they use the same parts as a standard 2.0 Fox. These are off of the old Jack Wilman Taraus monster truck racer.

Those are the original shocks off of the Tauras monster truck racer, the very first race specific built monster.

Adam,

What steering setup have you found to work reliably. I am running full hydro with a 2"x8" single ended TSC ram. I got the orbital cheap and am not sure what it is, and I know my pump isn't up to the task.

I am planning on revamping several things on my Bronco this winter, and steering is one of them.

Just curious as to what pump and orbital you have found to work well?

Thank you
Another Adam, haha

I run the saginaw pump with the fitting drilled out and I run a big cooler. The orbital I have is from an older IH combine. The first one I had sucked but it was a freebie.

You know this would be even more badass if it had your other air locker steer axle in the back. But I guess when they're that rare and expensive, a full spare is always good to have. But common, a proper monster truck needs rear steer.

BTW, what all would have to be done to adapt those massive gearharteng 2 9/16" 50 spline shafts you posted about in the 5 ton topic to work with an air locker axle (aside from the normal stuff. Just air locker specific)? Aside from another set of splines on the shaft, would you just machine a new side gear for the air locker to fit the bigger shafts? Or is there more to it?

Oh, and you're going to be running a mid engine, what's the wheelbase going to be on it?
Thanks.

It would require a new splined collar for the axle shaft and a new carrier half and spiders gears. The wheelbase is going to be 104.
