H8DWINGS Long time lurker, first time poster.

1989 XJ with 4.5" lift. First off road toy of my own. Grew up doing ATVs. Did the crawling thing a few times with a friend (also member here) and bought this Jeep since I couldn't find a 4 runner. I'm learning there is a TON of information I don't have and will learn. One of them is how trying to go cheap on stuff ends up costing more.

new to forum North IN

Hi....I'm building an M35A3 4x4, have an M929A2 and have bought and sold 15 5 ton MV's. Is there a MV section on Pirate4x4?

I'm looking for an alternative to Steel Soldiers because I like to have political discussions among friends. I'm an entrepreneur, designer, fabricator, a supporter of AE911TRUTH.com.... and an old hippy.

Finally getting back to the axle rebuild

Took 3 years to get around to my first post and starting to rebuild the Dana 50 TTB in my 85 F250. Pumpkin is ok but the seals and u-joints were shot. And the tie rod ends. And the ball joints. And the brake rotors. And...
Well anyway, at least it runs good.

Slednx Not so much a newbie checking in. Life got in the way creating no time for 4 wheeled projects but I am back and with a new account. Looking for help on an axle swap right now.

anwat So, I'm checking in. First time on a forum. Been reading for several years, I think it's called lurking. Reason for posting is I'm looking for idle specs for a Gen 6 7.4 crate motor with a very moderate cam. I know a bit about small blocks, but this is my first big block, I would expect it to idle lower than the 675 I'm used to, but this one isn't happy below 800. I can't find any info on what I should be shooting for as a warm base idle. Definitely a newbie question, but that's what this section is here for, right?

Ambrose3737 Just found this site. Interesting and informative.
Been trailriding 20+ years. Work truck, daily driver, dirt bike, fourwheeler, whatever I owned in the mountains of Harlan Ky.
Current project- 02 Dakota 3.9l with piston rod through oil pan (my last trailride)- very low budget 4x4.....
Hood, fenders, bumper removed.
In the works- 5.2l swap from parts truck, remove bedsides, rear bumper, doors, glass, roof, and A-pillars. Tube roll bars for safety. Weld rear end, leave front open. Shackle flip in rear. 3" lift by lift blocks and torsion keys, mostly to add clearance for frame. 35's or 37's (undecided, clearance between front tires and frame will decide for me), 2 bucket seats on remaining bedpan, and relocate radiator and battery to rear of vehicle (if you can call it a vehicle at this point).
Not ideal. Not my dream ride. Weak front diff, little flex. Things I'll address as time and $$ allows.
But will it climb? Yes, it will!
Will it be fun to wheel? You know it!
Will a friend have to tow me out of the mountains, half-drunk and enjoying every minute of it? It's bound to happen!

Questions about my 2nd Gen SAS Dakota cummins swap

got questions about some issues I'm having with my 12v Dakota

67StingrayJ I wish this site had more about RZRs and Can Am X3s. Yes, there is some on here but it seems to be geared more towards jeeps and old trucks. Ya know, slow rock crawling type stuff. Not that that's a bad thing

weldermaker I'm going to move springs to the top of axles. I have a tentative plan to move the steering arms to the top of the Dana 27. Looks like a protect for the milling machine. I also want to add power steering

Newb Here

I have 0 trail vehicles now. Moved from Tennessee to Nevada. Want to find something and go riding again. This site was a great source for info when I was building a rig 10 years ago. I'll be frequenting the classifieds.

ABCAB Hey Guys,

Noob here from the tip of Africa, and I have a 97 2.7TD Nissan Hardbody D21 converted by a local company to be a first gen Pathfinder look alike. Body is Fibreglass, with just the doors and bonnet metal.

I have got a lot of info from this forum, but my botched SFA needs a bit more specific expertise, I believe some the Pirate 4x4 members may be able to help me with.

Please check out my thread "Newbie from South Africa" in the Nissan section. I have some questions for the suspension experts, and I don't want to be hijacking other peoples threads.

The newest Noob

Hi, I'm a newbie here. I've got an old '96 Isuzu Trooper that's been out back collecting dust for a few years, and I'm thinking about redoing it in the next year or so. I can repair damn near anything, but swapping engines, transmissions, etc. around is pretty new to me so don't be surprised if I ask about something everybody here already knows.
02-27-2019 07:46 PM
killian I did post in the newb section, but without the photo I don't think itll get answered. Maybe I will try to explain and the dialogue will happen. Im not really sure what I am looking for is searchable, but will try. Thanks man.
