You could check out Tech Tim's version at Wild West Off Road....
This is as close as you can get to a Kit. Then you will need to hire someone to install it.
Kits are tough, and a ground breaking as this build is, Tech Tim has taken it one step further. Yes, his is designed for Toyota, but IFS is IFS, and it could easily be adapted to any vehicle.

Just read through the entire thread. Incredible stuff!

|Cornercarver82||coming from a former modded duramax owner, yes you need the intercooler on those engines unless you detune the crap out of them, the reason alot of older small diesels dont have intercoolers is because...they dont have turbo's. The other reason is heat, cast iron handles heat and pressure much better than aluminum, which the duramax is entirely constructed from|

Honestly, I find most folks over-think it. It's not that scary in this way, because you're not building it from scratch. The problem is in the IFS world, folks don't share much info...

|westracing01||I'd venture to guess there are a lot of pretty high dollar IFS trail rigs out there that aren't built as well as this thing is, let alone other H3's. Somewhere way back in this thread Bellydoc mentioned that this is the future of IFS, at least IFS for the common man. I don't understand why more people aren't building their rigs like this one, especially the later model trucks that have so much electronic junk in them.|

|Cornercarver82||You guys should put this together as a kit, I'd buy it. Absolutely incredible work, I'm still pretty new to the Hummer beyond what my unit has and I havent seen another H3 taken as far as yours. I saw the Bully Dog Duramax H3 but that truck just doesnt seem practical and without the intercooler I doubt it'll be relaible. Post up some vids of it on the trails/sand|

|westracing01||Been wanting to post this and kept forgetting. Excellent build. Has actually inspired me to change the direction I wanted to go with my rig. First time in a long time I have a pretty clear idea of where I want to go. Thank you!|

Just read through the thread, and have to say that I love your build.
I really like the face that you kept the IFS, and built it like it should have been built.
You've got the only H3 I like.

|cv6767||What housing ends did you use on your front diff? I'm trying to work out doing the same with a chevy colorado and am having trouble finding any sort of housing ends for a dana 44|

Bebe, this is my second time thru this tread in many weeks and it was just great to see the rig is working soooo well for ya. I really just enjoyed it so much! lol
Glad to see the driveline corrected.
Liked the tube door thread also.

Sorry for the slow response, I couldn't remember which online catalog had the specs.
My tie rods are "custom" as are the clevis mounts, so this is the best I can get for you.
Napa's information is the most thorough

I am impressed that is the first with all the trails you run since '05 that's the first one. Speaks volumes about your driving style/ability as we both have known a few that couldn't keep a half shaft, tie rod or front diff in an H3 longer than a few runs
Of course I have always carried an extra half shaft and a few tie rods which all but means I will never need them until the day I for some reason forget to load them for the trail

Those look cool.

|Bebe||Actually, later is better, late August is probably best, but anytime from mid August to mid September is good.|
|09-04-2012 11:27 AM|
Definitely sounds like a good time and I'm in! When is a good time? Late June?
