      An 80 is not practical in any way at all they are just fun and really cool.

      You need to run some springs that push the front axle forward. Rear springs or the fancy Sky Off-road springs would do it. That’s the only way you are going to keep a 35 out of the body.

      Nothing to add. Chopping is super easy. It’s the filling in the holes that takes a while.

      I’ve got a set of 86-95 Toyota pickup/4runner 4.88s diffs for sale. Rear is a rebuilt 4cylinder Marlin crawler unit and front is a factory 4.88 takeout. I pulled these out of my semi-daily driver when I put in a solid axle. No issues with the...

      The other update is the rear bumper. This was a "make-it-up-as-you-go" design. I just built it from whatever steel I had on hand. Main bumper is 3x4" rec tube. Wings and center section are 3/16". DOM corner guards. Full 1" thick recovery...

      Agree. You figure with 400 foot pounds at your disposal the 8 speed would trust 6-7-8 to get the job done on highway inclines but it's about as indecisive as a hipster at a beer tasting event.

      I thought I’d go wheeling and my front springs would settle. Instead the rears did, and now she squats pretty hard. Otherwise everything worked perfectly. Single picture from the trail and the highway to prove I did both. I got denied on that...

      I was just trying to save a fellow cruiserheads life. One minor front end collision would have put about 400 lbs of stuff through @davidp14 windshield. I’m assuming his head would have gone with it.

      The last several weekends but I finished my drawers. The main Caracas was given to by local badass @BlueCruiser84. I built the drawers, wings, and covered the top. Camping/cooking stuff is in the bigger drawer on the ds and tools and more...

      It was a fun project. If I take one single picture while I’m wheeling, I’ll post it. This is not a thread with extensive content. I’d say I’m too old, but I don’t think that’s true. Still to do: -Rear bumpstops -Get both elockers working -Rear...

      She lives! I put about 45 miles on it so far breaking in the gears. Drives really well. I outdid my expectations. There’s the obligatory flex shot. It had more to go but I ran out of dirt pile. Still a bunch of loose ends to tie up, but it’s...
