The Zuk is Alive!! Put everything together and went for a little test run at Prairie City OHV and I dont have a front drive line yet (not till wednesday) and It was still amazing!!!
A couple things i need to fix are....Power steering (went out my last trip), rear shackles (need the anti kick back one...i can flatten the rear springs and the shackle will stay flat.)....but that is it so far....I tried to beat it up pretty hard out there...and it just kept going!!

They flex pretty damn well....and they arent 16" wide!!!

Check out the front drivers side tire...this is with 2-3 lbs in them on just a little rock.

What back-spacing are you running on your wheels? I want to convert to Wagoneer's over the winter, but I'm going to keep my 15x8 MRT's beadlocks w/ 2" b/s. I'm thinking of 35x12.50 MT/R's or 36x12.50 SX's with the new axles, too. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> ~Steve

I am a standard 4" BS on a 10" rim. Those SX's are nice....I almost picked up a set of those to put on mine!!

Maybe it was said B4, but what do you have to do to keep the axles full witdh? I was measuring up a set the other day and if you put the RS spring in the front housing pad it will be too far to the LS. Did you move out your spring mounts?

<IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0"> that's looking beefy <IMG SRC="smilies/grinpimp.gif" border="0"> what's up with the tire flex!? my 33x14 boogers wouldn't do anything close to that... maybe the axle weight? how do like the waggy springs? they look like they work great. are those stock waggys or 44044s? did you take any leaves out or just run the full pack?

Poppy, those are the 44044's....I love em!!! They come a 6 pack but i took out the bottom spring and they work pretty damn awesome for this being there first trip!!! Fully aired up, i can pull up on a 36" sx like nothing!!! Get rid of the OME, and get some 44044's on there...they are 2" longer than wranglers and flex alot more!!!

Doug O Well my spring mounts have been moved before, but the rears are 34" and the fronts are 28.5"...I had a custom front chevy housing made for the front to be like that and to match the rear end.....Also Wagoneer fronts are set up SPUA, and Chevy is SPOA.
