mauidogg's runner build

Hey boyz, so here is gonna be the start of my build. So far nothing on my rig has been worthy of posting any real pics...but its gonna get better now.

Here's what I got today...my pallet from davez. It was wrapped very well, tied down to the pallet with wire and tons of bubble wrap. The only damage to anything was the box with the engine gasket kit was smashed on one side but everything inside the box was fine.
contents


Davez off road Rebuilt 22re with upgraded cam

TG dual case transfer Skid plate (its under the motor)
TG 4.7 gear set kit

TG 23 spline dual case adpater kit
& 3 triple drilled t-case flanges (dave actually sent me an extra one)

3 heavy duty shift springs (in one of the pics)

1 TG t-case mount
2 davez motor mounts


??? question are the bushings fine in these pics, I don't know if I should just run it or ask for replacement bushings???



and a special wedding gift.............TG trunion elminator kit!!!
(though apparently I am missing the upper pins and shims)

the next order from davez has not come in yet but I am expecting in next week or so. I also have other parts that have come in from Mr. longfield, his lifetime knuckle wiper seals, and the 6 pin dowel kit for the front hubs. ALso the arp hub stud kit from front range should be on its way.

I will post pics in the spot once the other package from davez comes in.

update from dave is that the bushings are fine as is but he is sending me an extra just in case.
edit: (dave said my upper pins should be with my package thats on its way.)

I could use help throwing together the dual cases if anyone has spare time. This friday or maybe eary saturday, free kalo for helpers! I was thinking about how to jimmy rig a bar to hold the t-case flange while I take of the flange nut and tighten it back down. i think i gots everything else tool wise.

Make sure you go heavy with the Perma Grey when you put your cases together. I thought I had it handled but I have a weep some where between the crawl box and rear case. It doesn't leave puddles but it's enough to piss me off.

The hardest part of a dual case build is getting the snap ring set when you build your crawl box. I ended up modding a pair of needle nose pliers with some 3/4 tubing I had laying around. You'll need a bearing press too (I've fucked up bearing's before trying to DIY when I didn't have a press, what a PITA).

thanks dave, but I gots me some good snap ring pliers from when I rebuilt the rear axle, but thanks for the offer. I also started my new work schedule, so no working on truck for a while. County job from 7:45am to 4:30pm, Summer Program for KSBE 5pm to 7:30am. Not much time inbetween to work on the truck for the next 6 weeks

yup, Davez hooked it up with the wedding present! new springs are gonna have to wait now. I would still like to drop it down some but we will see what kind of time and money I will be able to pull off with all the madness going down. I am running 4" in the front and 5" in the back...you talking about running 5" for your truck? if so then maybe we can figure something out
