Can't forget the donkey dick I imagine the blurry pics are some photobucket BS.
|09-29-2019 07:40 PM|
I don't know what the hell happened happened. thought it was just on my end.
Hopefully its fixed now. Well the last ones anyway...

|waterhorse||Are the pics all blurry for everybody else?|
|09-29-2019 05:17 PM|
I got some used Beard seats put in with some Crow harnesses
My buddy said something was missing on the front bumper. He had a shock hoop laying around and I had some left over DOM.

|03f350||Ya I was pretty sure that was going to be the case. I did have a method to my madness though. Bushings were in pretty bad shape. Truck has 240k on it. I figured pushing the front axle forward at the same time would be beneficial. $7-800 for arms with heims or Jonny joints didn't seem smart when I plan to do the ruff stuff radius arms when I swap the axles and 39.5s. These were $300. Figured it was a good compromise. And I was being lazy...|

I'd get me some arms with some Johnny Joints or similar. Those tube arms with poly bushings are going to bind. Arms like that came on a TJ I had, a stock YJ would out flex that thing they bound so bad. The stockers flex the whole length of the link, so bushings are ok. With tube, not so much.

I never really had wheel hop or axle wrap or anything before. I mainly did it so I didn't spit out a block. The rear feels a little softer now as well so be aware of that.
I'd recommend Apoc, cant beat the price and they were super helpful getting me the right part.
|09-04-2019 07:55 AM|
i so want to do this with my 2500 . hate those stupid blocks .. any advice ?
how do you find the wheel hop now ?

Went to Hollister for a day trip. Left at 6am.
did some trails. i think there was like ten people there. didnt get many pictures. But got stuck...
Got some body damage. Should have built sliders first. oh well.
I also ordered some longer control arms. mostly because I got lazy. they are 1 1/4" longer than stock. Shockingly I didnt have to cut out the old cam bolts to put them in...
Fits a little better in the fender

Did a little flex testing yesterday at the shop. Did better than I was expecting. I probably could have gone a little more.

Maybe I'll see you on the trail one of these days. If I ever get time to take it out.

|]4RunnerKid[||truck looks good, man. nice to see another local guy on here|

Quick shot of the stance

Got the fuel tank moved
I need to figure something out for the filler to make it look cleaner. It does work though. I might be a redneck, but i ain't that redneck...
Got the parts from Artec Ind. They are awesome and fit great. they come with 7/16" grade 8. Im using 1/2" so i drilled them out. Also my bumper is mounted with the same bolts so I burned them in. Less of a pain to remove the bumper.
Also some Ruff Stuff spring perches to move the axle back
Super happy how it turned out and getting rid of the factory blocks. The rear is a little higher than i wanted but Im ok with it.
super motor keeps turning my photos and i don't know why, i also like my computer so i switched back to shitbucket before my computer ends up in the creek...

So I talked to Josh at Apoc Ind. yesterday. Great guy! I guess there was a problem in manufacturing. He said he would be sending out the correct part in the next day or two. Great customer service! Once I got to talking to someone.
So now I should be back on track with the shackle flip.
He's probably not on here, but thanks Josh!
|07-23-2019 08:36 AM|
Good news. I finally got a response from Apoc Ind. We'll see what happens.
Also decided to go with the 70. $200.
I really wanted to run 5.38s but I guess I'm going with 5.89s. Oh well.
|07-18-2019 05:07 PM|
|YotaAtieToo||May as well use the 70 if you are replacing everything. No 5.38s for the 70 Fwiw gotta do 5.13s or jump to 5.89s|
|07-18-2019 01:59 PM|
I haven't pulled the shafts to check yet. Maybe today. But everything I've read says they are 30 spline. Front and rear.
I want to say the 70 is 32 spline. Not sure.
|07-17-2019 08:14 AM|
Is that 60 you have 35 spline? Using the 70 seems like a lot of extra cash into it to replace all the guts.
The old 60s you had to bore the spindles to get a 35sp 1.5" shaft in, not sure about that Dodge application.

|carslut||nice looking build|

Those hangars are probably for a 1 ton
measure the frame width on your parts truck
|07-13-2019 02:22 PM|
Also got a question about 60 or 70 rear.
My buddy has a 98 70U thats fucked. Grenaded diff, broken shafts, no brakes. So basically a housing. The rear I have is a 60 (perfect shape 100k mi.) which I had planned on doing a locker gears discs and 35 spl. anyway.
Would the 70U be a better candidate?
Can you 40 spl a 70?
|07-13-2019 02:09 PM|
Not sure why the pictures are sideways
Dont really give a fuck right now
|07-13-2019 02:07 PM|
So I tried to see what I could do about these shackle hangers today.
Its a no go. Not even close. Still no word from Apoc ind.
I may end up making my own. There is some 4x1/4 in the shop i can use. Or Ruff Stuff (Kinda love that place) has custom ones that look really good. For right now I'm going to wait with my fingers crossed for Apoc to contact me back. Sent another Email today. Its been a month though.
