Not to bad at all!!

Spidertrax doesn't list these on their site for my size axle anymore, and the ones they do are around $50 a piece. Picked up some trail gear seals for $28 a piece .

Let me know how they fit. I had a couple minor issues with mine, but figure it due to housing design.

Don't say that!

*edit*
Put a little gear oil on the orings and they slid right in. Only downfall I see is they aren't machined for the set screw like the spidertrax ones are. I may grind a small notch in them and find a screw.

Started tinkering with the front again, hoping to have it assembled by next week.

Made a little more progress. Now I need to put the knuckles on and measure throw so I can order a ram.

I'm trying to decide if I don't weld a piece of flat bar in between the shock tabs I'll kill a bus load of nuns, or if I should just slap on some paint and roll with it.



Damage from my mishap...

You spent more time typing that than it'd take to make the little gusset. Quit being lazy

Not the most cost effective route, but at least they match now.

Have you thought about ditching the kingpins for a better steering angle?

Yes, but building a set of JHF portals isn't in the budget.

You can break 50* with a kingpin, they aren't my limiting factor. I would have to pull the chassis side lowers in tighter as the lowers are right against the third on the axle side. To me it's more work than its worth, I'm already improving by more than 10*.

We'll see how it turns out. The wiring is so hack I just bought all new wire and lights to redo everything. The jack is a 12v hydraulic setup with a big ram. It's kinda nice to push a button and the trailer jump up. The rear deck is tacked on, and pretty fair surface rust. I'm probably gonna have to cut the tacks and buff everything. It was a project he started a couple years ago and never painted. I would prefer aluminum for the rear deck, but we'll see.

Looks like a good project but but a lot of work!

Are you coming through Denver on your way to Moab?
