New to the site

Hi, I am new to the site. I built a wrangler for on/offroad use years ago and wheeled in Kentucky. I recently moved to northeastern utah and picked up a sweet project that will be strictly off road. I am building on a budget but have a great start. I have a 1988 Mitsubishi mighty max, it has half ton dodge axles with 4:10 gears, half ton leaf springs. frame and bed have been shortened 9" came with a dodge 3.7 v6, propane injection a 727 automatic transmission and I am unsure of what transfer case is included. All it lacks for completion is making motor/transmission mounts, hooking up the motor, having driveshafts built and building a cage. just going to need some advice on inexpensive ways to do things. When i built my wrangler funds were abundant so I was able to just order parts and throw it on there. this being completely custom, parts just can't be bought. I don't care what the final product looks like, function is my only concern. I would like to thank everyone in advance for the help and advice I will receive.

rerod Been lurking here for years. But with all the slams and bashing, I'm a little reluctant to ask questions..

Better late than never, I guess

Sorta newb here. Lurked since 06 or so, joined 09 from overseas, got back to the US in 14, finally got my new rig in Sep 15, so I guess now I'm actually back in the 4x4 business again, so here's my newbie post. Anyone in the NWA area is welcome to drop me a line for some trail riding &c.

Returning to this site and 4x4 in general

I am moving to Wisconsin - Black River Falls area at the end of September. Guess I am not a newbie. Been registered on the site since 2002 but I've not been active for several years. I've recently sold all of my 4x4 projects but now returning to 4x4 field and looking to purchase a decent 4x4 as a daily driver in October. So I thought I'd pretend to be a newbie
Anyone from that area?

Newbie postin. Got a wise 84 toyota x-tra cab that's teaching me patience.

I have purchased a CJ5 1979 with 360 AMC for fun. Many questions, hello all

dragrcr65 Cluck the link in my posts, build thread there. Once you when an auto you will never go back. Easier on the drivetrain, easier on mounts, easier to drive, there is no reason to drive a manual IMO

EmJay520 Hello, I'm Michael from Alpharetta GA. I'm new to the off road scene but have mechanical aptitude.
My current DD/project is a 2WD 1987 Mazda B2200 with stock motor/transmission, weber 38 and gutted exhaust. Rear lifted 3 inches with lift shackles and a helper leaf added to the spring pack. Front lifted 2.5" with cranked indexed torsion bars and 1/2" ball joint spacers. Running Wagoneer 15" wheels with 235/65/15 tires.

The day I got it, traded a dead car for it

How it sits now (minus camper shell)

A trailer I made (and yes the pictured Civic DID pull this trailer loaded with 600lbs of scrap before)

Plans include a bastard 4x4 upgrade and a bolt on turbocharged DOHC motor. I'm currently thinking either Wagoneer axles (ft and rear) with the Mazda 4x4 trans (if I can find em) or Grand Cherokee front/Explorer disc rear with a divorced Dana 18/20 t case.

A buddy of mine built a 90 Bronco with 35" s and a nice lift. He wheeled it until his daughter took it out, got stuck, and spun some bearings. He still has it but now he wheels a 07 Wrangler with 35" boggers on Chevy wheels.

Stormfeather New guy checking in, did a bit of off-roading when I owned a Jeep, Then spent a few years in Iraq & A-stan doing the extreme off-roading where they try to blow you up all the time. Now Im home and getting an itch. Bought a 95 Chevy Tahoe with a little bit of lift and tires, and looking to start building it up from there.
Been a long time quasi lurker, now decided to go full retard and dive in, gonna have lots of questions, so thanks in advance!
