Dumbass, dangerous, redneck tools - confess your sins here!

Show us your worst, go on - amuse us all with your potentially bone crushing, finger mangling, eye-loosing contraptions!

Here's my redneck tranny jack!










Actually, it' just to clock the thing for bolt-hole allignment (loacting dowels only serve to get my fingers smashed between adapters and gear boxes when the wife gives an enthusiastic shove on the T-cases!)

I ended up using straps and chains and a big hole in the floor to sling it into place.

any picture with a hi-lift will do.. bout killed myself with one of those once! Slipped and flew by my face ripping my HAT off, an inch closer and it woulda been my skull!

I used an engine hoist to do that like you got pictured - since the hole in the floor was there why not

dumbass redneck tools

I don`t have eny pictures for you.picture this in your mind .205 transfer case jack adapter. 2 twelve bolt spring plates welded to gether turned upside down,apiece of pipe in the center the size of the hole for the floor jack pad.apiece 11/2" angle iron in the front a piece of 2''pipe on one side,apiece of1/4" plate6"x8" on the other side with slots to hold bolts to go into the two holes for the brace on the 205.I got real proud.Ran some beads that said 205 on it.Worked great to get the transfercase out without the adapter.I finished changeing out the bearings,seals.Found gskts for the adapter.bolted the adapter on to trasfercase while on floor jack.Jacked the whole thing up.Learned about balanceing things when all the wieght on one side was enough to flip the floor jack and everything over on my arm! I got to see a grown man piss his pants.My buddy that was watching that is!He still can`t stop laughing every time he see`s me .That was three years ago.P.S I redesigned it.Just waiting for one of my Buddys to borrow it to see if that balance problems fixed.Jon

Until my cousin got his 2 post lift, we were using these huge tree stumps that took 2 of us to roll around the shop. We chainsawed them flat as possible and then would stack a jackstand on top to finally reach the bottom of the frame. So many trucks got lifted in that shop that way, its comical looking back, but we didn't have anything else.

I fondly refer to this contraption as the 'triangle of death'. I have since chopped it up and scrapped it. I still use my hi-lift on a regular basis though.

Not dangerous but very redneck. My lockout was stuck in my d60 because teh splines were all fawked up. I couldnt pry it out using BillaVistas pry tool recomendation for the lift of me so I made this thing. Just tighten the screws that hold the outer lockout on and use a socket between teh wood and the shaft and you have a home made lockout puller!

Damn, now thats pretty ingenious...


Knowing a few rednecks and ranchers, I've seen some booty-assed stuff. The only thing that I can think of lately doing myself though is welding a piece of pipe to the rear output nut of a D20 with a long assed pipe wrench on the case, and a piece of bar stock welded to the pipe, it still took heat and teh pb blaster to get that bastid off....I'll think of some good ones I've seen when I'm not so tired.

I try to make it a point not to take pictures of myself showing my stupid gene . . .

However, I did run across these a couple of years ago whilst surfing the web and expanding my horizons. I was impressed!

Hey, that's how I got my dana 60 out of the bed of my dad's truck! No pics, but we chained one of the knuckles to a tree branch, took the tailgate off the truck, and he floored it outta there. Wow! Kinda scary to have 500 lbs of rusty iron swingin at ya.

No pics but 2 deep wall sockets, a piece of 1/2-20 all thread and a couple nuts used to push out the spring bushes in the frame. It works but there are faster ways...

Lookin for

Good redneck idea to jack up an f250 cause the front axle has been giving me trouble and am swappin it with a 78 hp d60.
The donor vehicle is sittin front end high enough so the donor axle rolled right out without lettin any air out of the tires. Its sitten on about 3 feet of 4x12 under the cross brace. (pretty redneck) Need to do my truck too but ran out of 4x12 the triangle of death looks lilke it would work but need to jack a fullsize with a big block.

All my contraptions are never that safe by the time the truck gets that high.......

I was changing the front axle in the jeep one day on really unlevel surface in the back yard.When I got the engine hiost up high enough to pull the axle out it kept falling over but just needed a little weight on that side.So we told my friends 4 year old to stand on that side and do not move while I was under the jeep cuting some stuff off with the torch.The only thing I was worried about was that the kid mined about like to telling a wild animal to mind..lol..he tried to move but I bribed him from under the truck and he stayed there...

The shirt makes the pic..



I'll have to post pics of us straightening my front D60 this weekend while it was in the truck. We used a 10-ton porta pak, some chain, and a torch. We only broke the chain once.
