<STRONG>Does anyone have plans for prepping their rigs? I'm available all day Saturday, and at least some of Sunday.
We all have stuff to do, lets get together!</STRONG>
If we can plan a big WAT, then yes. I might even be able to spend the night, and continue working until about 2PM Sunday. I need to set up the rear gears, swap my front diff. Some kind of skid plate. Knock out a cheap-ass lower control arm brace. Get the quick-releases done on the doors.Originally posted by JackA:
Mike, you going to drive up to the big city or something?</STRONG>
It's on at my place for sure! UPS delivered my tranny today and I finished fabbing my motor mount lift blocks last night and i am ready to make it happen. Still need to fab the tranny lift block or a new crossmember. Need to consider the impacts of the drivetrain lift. I'll need to modify my exhaust to compensate for the lift, raise the radiator back up with the body, modify the horse collar crossmember. Hell i might even strip the rear housing pivot it a little and re-weld the perches and stuff back on to help the pinion angle.Originally posted by Pazuzu:
<STRONG>Can we nail something down here? Is Kong's shop a possibility? Eric, are you finalizing plans at your place?
I've got a hella drive, I need to know! If everyone ends up working sepaprately, that's cool, but I need to know before 6AM tomorrow.</STRONG>
Blocks are already fabricated. I'm lifting the motor 2" and the tranny 1.25". The gas tank is already lifted.Originally posted by ScottD:
<STRONG>Hey Eric, just an FYI:
It took longer to do my d-train lift than my SAS. 12 hours in all.....
Things to consider:
radiator (relocate to stock)
engine mount spacers
If I were you, i'd make the lift blocks 1/4" shorter than your bodylift, or you might have tranny tunnel clearance issues....</STRONG>
