I think the whole town being gone was just as difficult to deal with, if not more, than loosing our house and belongings. Such a sudden end to so many things. Very sad, but in the end, I feel fortunate, the real important things to me, my family and friends, are all safe. Many souls were not as fortunate.

Definitely gives you a different perspective on material things.

I sold some samurai stuff to Jeremy but it wasn't that much money. Sold a CRD 60 to Mike for $2000 bucks and it burned up with his race car.

just thought change those ujoints in the stub shaft they look like the originals and have most likely operate at a specific angle forever and probably half siezed

as long as the output and input flange angles are the same you should be vibration free

Wilson gave them to me, they came on his sami. I got it registered so I figured I'd try them out on the last trip up with no trailer. The problem is that they're ~2.5" backspacing and still need the 1" spacer in the front. so they rub really really bad in the front.

I didn't think there was a difference in the body parts from 89 to 98. But my white one is a 96 with a left front fender off and older one and it doesn't line up right, body lines not even the same. Looks like 89 to 95 are one, then 96 97 and 98 were a little different. The grill on the 96 up looks like crap to, they made it different just to be different and I want the older style.

I'm pre-running ridgecrest in the tracker thursday and friday.

Not sure how to tell what year a fender is, but the guy I'm supposed to trade with says he has a bunch of extra track kick parts.

Are you going to be in CA any time soon?

Driveline. Tcase is good, I actually drove the sami it was in on a snow run last winter.

Just got in a hurry, it shouldn't be too hard to move it about 3" to the passenger side.

YotaAtieToo Well it's a fail, vibrates and makes a horrible sound.
09-08-2019 07:42 PM
YotaAtieToo Well I got a lot done today, didn't take a single picture though because I was trying to keep rolling.

I ended up cutting the exhaust right after the o2 and right before the muffler. Right after the o2 it dropped down and then went straight into the muffler, plan is to flip it so it stays high until right before the muffler.

Turns out the front drive line from my burnt 4runner is going to work in the rear. It's a little short so I used the same spacer I had as an adapter (same bolt pattern, but very slightly smaller pilot.

Hopefully I can drive it tomorrow.

YotaAtieToo Funny you mention that, I was actually just out there.

Here is what I came up for a crossmember.



Roughly mocked up under there. Exhaust will need a little modification, but not much.



Driveline angle seems steeper to the driver side than I remember when I took the measurements what do you guys think? Too much? It's not going to be a highway cruiser, but in low range it may see the same rpm. I my be able to shift the trans over a little bit to help, but not much. Moving the tcase would mean some major floor work.



Now that I think about it, it's just roughed under there. It could be cocked, making it look worse than it is.

2big bronco Wheres the updates

YotaAtieToo Started on the sami case swap. First thing was to get the transmission supported. I was able to use the stock mount from the 1st Gen tcase with a little modification. Slotted one hole and sanded some ridges off. Didn't get a great pic, but it almost bolted up to my modified stock crossmember, I just cut the flat bar off and moved a little forward and to the passenger side. I plan on replacing this with something a little beefier when I build the full belly pan skid.



At first I was going to try to use the stock style mounts on the mighty Kong, but the driver side mount would have been inside the cab I decided to just build a full width crossmember off the bottom of the MK and brace it up and out to the wings.

This is the start of the passenger side, had to test out the dimple dies
