    Rear drivetrain clunk, what’s worn? (Video)

    I zoomed in on those suckers while watching from my phone and yup, there seems to be some play in that poly bushing. That’ll be next on the list to replace as soon as I can figure out what size they are. Thank you for spotting that by the way!

    Rear drivetrain clunk, what’s worn? (Video)

    The spots at the hubs, are those pressed on? As in if those are slightly worn can those be semi easily replaced like the front drive flanges? Or does that require removing the pumpkin and removing the shafts? Also thanks for making a sweet product. Snagged one of these right when you started...

    Rear drivetrain clunk, what’s worn? (Video)

    The truck was regeared about 30k miles ago to 4.88. The same play before and after from what I remember.

    Gears are 4.88 nitro that have about ~30k miles on them.

    Rear drivetrain clunk, what’s worn? (Video)

    I’ve read over nearly every reverse to drive clunk thread and can’t seem to figure out my issue. First off, it’s nothing front end related as I have the front driveshaft removed and the center diff locked. I’ve removed the rear DS, cleaned the ujoints, regreased, cleaned the slip joint splines...

    Thud from driveshaft when shifting into D -- u-joints are new

    This. I can’t figure out what mine is. Definitely not any of the things above as I have my front DS removed and running with the center diff locked. When I’m park I can grab the rear driveshaft and rotate it back and forth a decent amount. No play at the joints either. Have disassembled the slip...

    Bump it Offroad (BIO) rear bumper

    X2. Periodically, when they start getting rough, remove, clean, grease, reinstall. It would be nice if BIO had that as an option/upgrade for those pins to be stainless.

    For the second fender, I decided to order these strong hand magnets. They made setting the angle for the fender frames a million times easier. Highly recommend for metal fab. Merry Christmas from me and Roux!!!

    For the inner side of the fender I had though of using the wall of the cabin. But then figured that wouldn’t work very well so built an inner wall. I built the fender 1cm away from the outer edge of the main frame to leave room to attach the wall and trim around the lower edge of the cabin. The...

    I then tacked the fender in place. I tried TIG welding the fender to the 2x2”, but i just don’t have the skill. I couldn’t get a steady position and kept melting too much of the skin. Plus, it would have taken a 4-6 Times as long to TIG the the whole skin vs MIG. The welds along the outer edge I...

    I bought a 4x8 sheet of 16gauge steel (~$50) for making the fender skin. I used some cardboard to get the sizing right. Traced on the sheet, and then used a jigsaw with a metal cutting blade. A sheet metal brake would have been perfect here. I thought about building one, but I don’t have a...

    For building the fenders, the maths got a little harder. I needed to break out some pen and paper to figure out the right cutting angle. I wanted the upright to be at 60* (45* would have to make the fenders a lot wider to clear a 35). I tried to recreate what I drew with some sketches on the...

    Started the frame for the fender. These are built out of 1” square 16 gauge hot rolled. I added a piece of 1” angle steel in the center as a support and brace for the top of the fender so that I could use it as a step to access the roof of the trailer.

    I ended up running the main hitch tube back from the front of the trailer to the rear with a 4 ft section as to have a hitch receiver in the rear. Excuse my poor, beginner TIG welds haha. They get better, I promise. Starting to fit the front section of the fender. This will hopefully help...

    Just had the busiest 4 weeks of my work for the year (4 weeks of 10-12 hours a day) with only a couple days off and in the middle my mother passed away. Now that works over, I’ve been spending a lot of time on the trailer. Got a lot to post. Got the AHP alpha TIG 200 welder in. Spent a lot of...
