Funny you mention that, I was actually just out there.

Here is what I came up for a crossmember. :confused:



Roughly mocked up under there. Exhaust will need a little modification, but not much.



Driveline angle seems steeper to the driver side than I remember when I took the measurements :laughing: what do you guys think? Too much? It's not going to be a highway cruiser, but in low range it may see the same rpm. I my be able to shift the trans over a little bit to help, but not much. Moving the tcase would mean some major floor work.



Now that I think about it, it's just roughed under there. It could be cocked, making it look worse than it is.

Well I got a lot done today, didn't take a single picture though because I was trying to keep rolling.

I ended up cutting the exhaust right after the o2 and right before the muffler. Right after the o2 it dropped down and then went straight into the muffler, plan is to flip it so it stays high until right before the muffler.

Turns out the front drive line from my burnt 4runner is going to work in the rear. It's a little short so I used the same spacer I had as an adapter (same bolt pattern, but very slightly smaller pilot.

Hopefully I can drive it tomorrow.

In all you guy's parts piles do either of you (2big bronco) have a grill or left front fender for a first gen track/kick? I'd like a grill from say a 95, need a fender from a 96+.

Driveline only or got t-case issues?
Driveline. Tcase is good, I actually drove the sami it was in on a snow run last winter.

Just got in a hurry, it shouldn't be too hard to move it about 3" to the passenger side.

Not sure how to tell what year a fender is, but the guy I'm supposed to trade with says he has a bunch of extra track kick parts.

Are you going to be in CA any time soon?

Shane, your ecu is still on my shelf, it won't go with the sidekick. If you need it, I'll get it to you asap.

I'm coming to ridgecrest this weekend. Then I'll be in Reno in october. Got friends coming from paradise to one or both of those events.

I didn't think there was a difference in the body parts from 89 to 98. But my white one is a 96 with a left front fender off and older one and it doesn't line up right, body lines not even the same. Looks like 89 to 95 are one, then 96 97 and 98 were a little different. The grill on the 96 up looks like crap to, they made it different just to be different and I want the older style.

I'm pre-running ridgecrest in the tracker thursday and friday.

i see an old school MTR tire in your recent pics....
Wilson gave them to me, they came on his sami. I got it registered so I figured I'd try them out on the last trip up with no trailer. The problem is that they're ~2.5" backspacing and still need the 1" spacer in the front. :barf: so they rub really really bad in the front.

Well it's a fail, vibrates and makes a horrible sound.
just thought change those ujoints in the stub shaft they look like the originals and have most likely operate at a specific angle forever and probably half siezed

as long as the output and input flange angles are the same you should be vibration free

Ah, I know them both. Jeremy pretty well.
I feel terrible, I sold stuff to both of them right before the fire, all of which burned up in the fire. :(

I sold some samurai stuff to Jeremy but it wasn't that much money. Sold a CRD 60 to Mike for $2000 bucks and it burned up with his race car. :(:(:(

Jeremy had borrowed a samurai case from me and it burned up, but it would have burned up at my house too. Little truck parts are pretty low on the list when you loose everything.
