    The parable of the pizza place

    This is a story that actually happened to me locally, involving off road "product", it was so ludicrous i had to share it. I have changed the specifics to be a pizza place analogy. I have been "buying pizza" for 8 years from various places locally, and nationally. I walk into a local...

    putting 2.9 A4LD into explorer help

    A buddy of mine has 2 1990 bronco ii a4ld trannies, and his 1993 explorer just dropped a Trans. I know the ex uses a different a4ld, with an additional solenoid or two. So it stands to reason that an older ECM lacks the controls for these an additional solenoids, so it won't work. But in...

    Anybody ever use a Sterling 10.25?

    In a recent issue of Petersen's they did a writeup on how to build one, the various model/year differences, and how it compares to its nearest counterpart (the gm 14bolt) if I am remembering correctly, apparently there are a total of (3) different pinion options (and thusly 3 different types...

    Jeep D35?

    I must apologize, I was basing my statement on real-world experience, as opposed to "on-paper" physics of spline angles or whatever. I stand by what I said: a d44, and 8.8 are roughly the same real-world strength the difference isn't wide enough to justify such a grand statement as "arguably...

    Jeep D35?

    I disagree, an 8.8 is not "arguably stronger than a D44". it's not really any weaker either in fact a D44 has an 8.9" ring gear :icon_confused: the only jeep guys who swap an 8.8 in, are the guys who had a D35 out back. Those with the rubicon (which already has a d44 rear), don't swap in an...

    SAS swap 1994 ford ranger

    The TTB-vs.-SA debate is never ending, take everyone's opinion, and decide which is best for you. but ttb has 1 more u-joint than a SA, i.e. one more "weak point" (the passenger side axle literally has 2 u-joints on it) i've also never seen a guy twist and destroy the entire housing of a...

    SAS swap 1994 ford ranger

    ok as far as the axle strength difference question goes: but that is only referring to the carrier itself, a TTB d35 has pivot points, and additional u-joints. which each one is a weak point that a solid axle doesn't have

    if you could have your parking brake on the front instead of the rear wheels?

    if you could choose between having your parking brake on the front instead of the rear, would you do it? the reason i ask is that i am putting a line-lock solenoid in-line on one of my brake lines to provide with a solid parking brake (easier than adapting e-brake cables in my situation, with...

    does redline oil contain zddp?

    i am a redline dealer (though i don't much care for it) and my redline rep was telling me that all redline oils contain zddp (zinc) even their motorcycle oils the epa outlawed zddp in motor oils and therefore all oils containing it must be labeled "for off-road use only" like royal purple...
