Thanks.
Originally I had 2" wheel spacers to get the Mitsu rear axle closer to the width of the D44. But then I replaced the mitsu rear with a Ford 9 inch rear that matches the D44.

Couple updates to share.

Got these LED under cabinet lights from a friend for free so i mounted one on each corner. Well one month later and two of them are inoperative and another has gotten dim:shaking:





Front bumper is done for now. I'm planning on taking a piece of tube from the side of the bumper, around the wheel well and landing it on the slider, but that will be a winter project.









Shaved the v shaped crossmember after getting hung up on some rocks.

before



after



Shaved the pinion guard, too

Thanks. I'll be ready this year, I'm currently shopping for a tow rig/work truck. :smokin:

Hope to see you in the trails!

It's been a few years. Original screen name was lost in the password-apocalypse.

Now photobucket stopped alowing free linking of pics, but they should still be there if you click them.

New pic, one of these things is not like the others!

Finally made it to Harlan County's Black Mountain Off Road Adventure Area last month. Been wanting to go for years. Some challenging stuff out there, to say the least.

Some of the trails I did; Cream Puff, Rock Garden, Killin' Time, White Trail Crawl.

The Sport has been reliable, and at this point, 10 years since the axle swap, I think I have most of the bugs worked out. Some temporary fixes have become permanent, and the interior could use some refining. She still runs hot, I think that might be because my radiator is at an angle, but most of the time I can keep it under 215 with the heater on.

Just haven't had time to do more of the things I wanted to. Got a half finished rear swaybar in the garage, still no winch, tubework around wheel wells.... That's the way it goes.:flipoff2:

Went to Bundy Hill in Michigan, struggled through the tire pit and then bkoke 2 axleshafts about a minute later. Got pinned between 2 huge tires and heard pop pop. Right front and left rear both broke at the diff.

Here's getting winched out after winching the huge tire over from in front of me.


I have spares for both, should be ready again shortly.
