D60's are a rare bird up here now, at least the SW ones. They average ~$1500 for used, and that usually means needs bearings and seals etc... I got my 44 for $75, with a steering box, drag link, tierod etc, so by the time its got a locker, new gears, warn alloys ang CTM's I'm still ahead of the game. If I had found a $500 D60(like I always hear about but never see ) then I'd have gone that route.... oh well... I almost considered going with a Toy axle w/spacers and run some Smurfields or Longs... Now thats a cheap axle....Grampa - For the price of alloys and ctm's you could probably have a dana 60...just something to think about.
I did a lot of research on the folding windshield idea for my Trooper last year. I can find and forward my notes to you if you on want to try it. I think it would not be that hard. Especially if your going topless.paulevans76 said:I hear taurus fans are good. there was a huge thread on them a few months back. search should get you to it easily.
As for ideas, well I always thought that choppin everything off and using a CJ/YJ/TJ/FJ fold down windshield would be cool. And maybe chopping the tops of the doors and leaving the lower halves, at least the backdoors. the fronts you could leave half, chop like the toyota guys do, or get tube.
Here's "Air Trooper" before the Dana 44 SAS.jyurs said:sssrodeo, got any pics of the "airtrooper"?
and about the doors, i am assuming the "b" pillar is the center pillar where the front and rear doors meet. also, i found a 2 door that runs and in good shape for $400 but no title...should i go that route.?
