|DMANbluesfreak||It's always something "easy" that causes the worst breakage, it seems. Good luck getting it back together!|

not much to update other then he swapped out his front coils for some firmer ones and seems to like it better. we went out for a quick test run to make sure everything is good before insanity fab. right at the end of the day the fat ass truck broke through the ice and got really stuck. i was way a head and did not know what happened. when he was trying to get out the driver side axle or ujoint let go. so now its race to find a replacement inner and outer before we leave to go race

Since day 1 of this thread I've been thinking this build was prime for a V10. I get why the aren't popular swap candidates given size and lack of LS-like aftermarket support but I dig em, they're good engines and make some good power even stock. Looking at the grill on the truck I'm guessing its pre-05 so its a 2 valve motor?
Whats the trans plan? Gonna run one of the 2 4R100's? Rebuild one of them with strong bits? ZF6? Other? Too early?

|squamch||Kinda off topicish, but is there a good supply of those trucks for parts up there? I need a long box and a zf6 that doesn't sound like it has rocks in it, and they're damn near non-existent down here.|

got out again this weekend and hit up one of the better trails around our area. hit snow part way up the trail so made it more challenging for sure. other then truck throwing codes in the morning and braking the driver side door glass truck did well and no issues.

he got the truck back together. new shocks mounts and over motor brace, TMR machined knuckles with full hydro and new bump stops.
with the ram mounted up high he had to move the trac bar bracket but actually for the better as its flatter now. bump stops off the back of the truss and tied into lower link mounts
took it out and steering worked well

Awesome, all of it!
I love my v10!

even with the brake on the last course his time from first day we good enough to get 2nd place in big tire for the weekend and fastest big tire pass in the second course.
he washed the truck the other night and looks like both front bump stops are missing. coil over looks ok but will have to pull coils and check to make sure shaft is ok. he was talking to me this morning about air bumps so that might happen soon. still has to get around to putting all his full hydro parts on that he has as well. he was talking about needing more power so i have been trying to talk him into a V10 swap

proved that pigs can fly
then found out what happens when you air out 7000 pounds and beat on it non stop. upper coil over mount busted off the tube. one side the weld failed but other side it ripped the tab in half. he didnt even know it had happened till the coil over pulled the mass air flow wiring and killed the truck
