I live in a normal area i guess you would call it, even when i lived in Lansing and spent a lot of time in Hammond Indiana i still never seen them in the last 10 years, i just figured everyone used them as plow trucks or off-road trucks which is what i did.

But i been all over Nashville yesterday and today and havent seen anything old other then like a 90s Grand Prix driven by some kids. Everyone has nice new boring plastic cars. We are going to pigeon forge area tomorrow and following some huge garage sale that is up and down a road maybe ill find some old junk then

I hate to get all "after the fact" up in your ass, but a SAS w/HP44 is easier than a lift kit for your bronco.

I know and that's what I should have done. I was trying to keep it simple for once but that means I will probably end up doing it twice.

SAS with anything other than a SD60 in a coil sprung TTB truck is stupid. The SD60 is easier better and often cheaper.

Slid in to a crawlspace today and saw some “repairs”. I pulled the 4x4 out and slipped it back in. Good times...

Uhh, no.

Coil mounts are in the wrong place.

Have to fab radius arms and mounts.

Different bolt pattern

Different steering linkage setup.

Different brake caliper size, thus different MC.

Different Pinion length and u-joint size.

45 is right, 77-79 Bronco or F150 setup is the way to go if you can source one. Plenty of good cast wedge axles still floating around here in the south.

Ran out of newspaper for the chimney starter. The hunt is on. Seems like newspaper is unobtanium and super hard to come by. No way I am paying three fifty for the Sunday paper.

I asked around and checked the recycling center but no one got any. Planning on asking Beaver County Times if they will give me blems for free.

What are alternatives that you guys use to start the coal?

Find out where the news paper is printed. There will be dumpsters full of close by. I filled up a tote and it’s still got a bunch in it, been 3 years now.

We get local papers put into our mailbox for free. Great for starting the grill.

Agreed. A superpoopy 60 is $500 and so is a 44. For the little bit more work it takes it seems crazy not to put one in anything

Meh, depends on what you're gonna do with it. Really clean and 35's there's no sense in going tons when the HP44 is virtually drop in and matches the rear 5x5.5

My point is, twin tractor beam sucks balls unless you're spending big $$$- then it's kinda awesome.

All the big $$ stuff is just simple fabrication. If you've got a welder and a grinder the TTB is the cheapest and easiest IFS to build up. Eventually you hit a point where you want CTMs but it's cheap until then and you hit that point with every IFS.

SD coil buckets bolt up, or you can weld up the tops of the TTB ones to fit the SD coils
use the SD radarms and frame brackets, hell, even the track bar bracket pretty much bolts up
steering linkage ain't bad, you just use a 4wd f350 pitman to get the full steering range
big bore MC from an f-superduty is like $20
front driveshafts are easy to cobble

Most convenient stores have those little stands with free realtor and whatnot rags. They work just fine.

And you might as well throw a the $150 10-1/4 in the rear and buy some matching wheels. After you've replace the axle bearnings, brakes...etc.

I'm with 45....throw a HP44 in it and ride. Most people aren't bouncing their DD.

A SD 60 pretty much bolts up to a big bronco? Sweet!

Do you really want to be the guy that passes up an opportunity to wheel his DD because he's afraid of the 44 breaking.

It's for a vehicle with damn near the same frame width that uses the same steering geometry with coils. It can only be so hard to swap.

With decent axles and joints a 44 will hold up just fine. I beat on them for years with 36's and 38's without issue. 38's however was as far as I wanted to push them. 39.5 and up I'd recommend a 60.

Detroit in the front and spooled 9"

Did all the wheel bearings in the race car toter today. Had to fix some brake stuff too. Lost one on our way back from Laguna a couple weeks ago and the truck was stranded for a couple days, so it was time. That big truck/trailer stuff is fawkin heavy compared to the race car stuff

I was going to say carburator cleaner. Lost count of how many times I've set the rags on my work benches on fire by hitting the grinder a few hours after cleaning some car parts.
That stuff has a shelf life of forever once you let it out of the can.

I love babies, I really enjoy my kid, but i still hate most children

Quote:
Do you think there are kids who don't have any friends near by to play with? Because i think i am one of those kids
- my nearly 6 year old.

apparently the neighbor kids 'put him in trouble' because they think he was lying about quadrillion being a real number. so he came back to the house all sad. i asked him if it was worth it to argue over if the number was real or not, or if it were more fun to play and just agree to disagree about the number. Not everybody can math.

he said it would be more fun to play, so he went back across the street to try again. Nope, turns out my kid is 'still in trouble' and 'not allowed to set foot' on their property.

every couple of months he tries to play with these kids (youngest is about his age) and it usually doesn't go well. I think this time it might finally sink in that not everybody is friend material.


edit: my answer to his question was "yes, there are many kids like that" and every time he asks i tell him that i don't mind if he plays, but remind him it doesn't usually go well with them and that he should come right home if they are not being nice. he is pretty consistent about say "okay and maybe this time will be better".

Enjoyed a few hours at Cars & Coffee @ Cota this morning. Couple hundred cars, some were pretty sweet.

'74 DeThomaso Pantera GTS, driven by the original owner. Nice guy, was an engineer for Ford for quite a few years.

Ford GT in Gulf livery - pale blue and orange, looked like it should be at LeMans. Pretty car.

Porsche 911R - very subtle. Most of the GT3 hardware but not the bulging fenders, scoops, wings, and flares. On my bucket list when my Lotto numbers come up.
