trip is this weekend, but im not going. too busy trying to move, and have other obligations that i need to put first...im hoping to go within the next month or two, but it wont be this weekend. still need to build sliders, build a doubler, possibly bob the bed, get 42s and beadocks, and should probably put in a new clutch. are there any better than OE clutchs for the 4L/m5od?

i just read my thread from the beginning, looked at the posting dates, then realized about 5 months ago i had a pretty much stock ranger, then swapped in 1/2 tons, drove on them for approx. 3-4 months, then went to tons. i thought that was pretty funny. i feel like i never have time to work on my truck, but 4 axle builds/swaps in 5 months is pretty good!! hahahaha

havent been on trs in a while, but still no pics. ill take some this weekend. finally really moving, we get the keys tomorrow, then head up to the house to pack everything up, hope to be out by saturday.

so a little update without pics:
i absolutely love one tons!!!!!! no more semi-float axle retaining problems, i can hold my foot on the gas when i used to lift, and i think the 5.38s are a big gain over the 5.13s. also picked up some 3/4 tread 38.5x15x16.5 tsl sx's for 500 off pirate. like the tires, hate how easy the bead unseats itself. so now im looking for a set of h1s, for a good price. besides having been my dd for about a month, ive takin the truck out 3 times, nearly rolled it about a dozen, and have not broken a single thing yet. although the next to go will be the clutch. i finally bought my wife a new car, so i got the exploder is my dd, which will hopefully take the place of my truck sitting in my buddies garage(once i get a reliable work truck). i would like to swap the exploder sooner vs later since i was a jackass and decided to take a sawzall to the heater box, and pulled the fan blower out(it was 105 during the middle of the summer).
PICS WILL BE COMING SOON

i know i know....been slackin alot lately on the pics. but theres not much to take pics of righnow. really. truck was torn down, pulled everything except for the motor, frame, and body. gave lots of parts to my buddy who bought my 1/2tons. now, all i have is a stock '94 exploder, suspension shit, steering shit, one tons, 38s, and no time to put them together. still need to order a bunch of more parts, rebuild the front, swap discs on the rear, and then get another truck for dd-ing/work duties.
