Hehehe!~ you know me. Its all about beating Grant on page numbers.Shadow man said:talk about milking a thread from Febuary!!! :flipoff2:
Got it pinched in the layer under eh? We've used it a couple times with other guy's and haven't had any problems yet ~ but Led's truggy isn't anywhere close to the weight of the Scout.When you pull that syn rope hard, your gonna find out why I won't run it anymore. :shaking: What a pain in the ass. I went back to steel rope.
I agree. Very nice with the 42's.Snoopy said:The biggest surprise I have for ya'll is a slight change in the drivetrain and tire/wheel decission.
I guess there is only one way to explain this...
Yup ~ thats a 42" tall, 14" wide Super Swamper IROK tire. Man is it sweet ~ I went to 4WheelParts and sized it up to a couple other tires. In fact, I found that the 39.5" IROK is as big as a standard 42" TSL ~ and the 42" IROK is 1.25-1.5" taller than the standard 42" TSL.
However, the 42" IROK only measures 40.75" tall without air. Yet, at the same time, without air the center of the tire is recessed a bit. I fully expect the tire to measure a true 42" after its mounted and air'd up.
So the question is "Why" ~ the answer is: "Because I can ~ and I want to." Led and I were chatting about things as we stood around Rusty late into the evening. The subject of tires came up and we started talking about going BIGGER. We both agreed that I couldn't get 39.5s on the D44/9-inch combo without beefing EVERYTHING up ~ so to make a long story short ~ we decided that IF I could sell the wheels/tires for enought to pick up some new axles and tires ~ then I'd do it.
Guess what....I got what I needed. $1350 for the set of 5 37s, 4 mounted on new beadlocks, 1 on a spare matching chrome rim ~ shipping brought it up to an even $1500. And that was enough....JUST enough.
In the end, this is the difference:
I think it looks more porportional .
Sounds like Dan's trucks to me also.Snoopy said:Sounds alot like Dave King and his family. Black, narrowed up front, 42 on D60/D80 ~ coils up front, quarter ellip in back ~ his dad's rig is the diesel, 118" WB, coil-overs in back ~ and stuff.
Arguably one of the best IH builders I know!
Dave's 800 was one of the two 800s I fanticized over back in 2000 ~then he had orange (or was it red) highlights. The other was Dan Swartz's (sp) Red 800 on 38s. Before it was beat to crap ~ still looks good though. That was when I started dreamin' up my 4-link system. Lil Mule was built (although it didn't make it to RMIHR) and I was looking for a better answer than it's setup.
Dave is a top-notch guy. Good wheeler, great builder, and friendly to boot!
