|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|

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.

I think I know most of the parts I need and I have stuff already but if you guys could point me in the right direction of where to post.. That'd be so helpful. Thank you so much in advance.

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!
I need more flex....

New here, got a 1997 F250 HD diesel with only 44,000 original miles. Wanted to change the independent front Dana 50, to a Dana 60 when the bushings and ball joints start to fail.
So I start looking around for an old f350, I help a friend pick up his '62 Chrysler 300h on a ranch up near Clearlake Ca. I see an old ford 4x4, and there it is a Dana 60 under the front of a '78 f250. I was told that when anyone would get stuck on the muddy trails on this ranch that they would fire up the old Ford and pull them out every time. It has a 300 6, 4 speed, np205, and 410 gears.
The truck hasn't been driven for 5 years so I ask the owner if he wants to sell it. He says yes $300, but I think it's worth more and I don't want to get over on a friend. So I offer him a Remington 30,06 that has a match barrel, worth about $700 to me.
The only problem now is i want to keep both trucks, so I still need to find a front Dana 60 for the '97.

|juanfo||Hi everyone. Began fixing a chevy pickup late last year. No rust but everything else doesn't work. Bolts cracked or threads stripped. Good times|
|06-14-2015 07:35 AM|
|Scrumhalf||I have started a new thread in the newb section with those points. Thanks for the advice. No hurry for the purchase - I can wait for the right deal to show up. Plenty of "regular' trails to keep me busy for a long time!|
|06-14-2015 05:00 AM|
There isn't really a FAQ here, so I am going to save my mini-rant here. It may come in handy in the future
