Default My B2 FW SAS

Thought I would add some of the earlier pics before the SAS...
30's and 3" JD lift

32's

35's


Took a couple of weeks to complete. 1979 D44

Mock up with 5.5 Wildhorse springs

Modified JD buckets

4.88's and Lockrite

Complete disc to disc


1989 F150 8.8

Gotta set the pinion angle and add brakes and shocks. Not a fan of blocks but new springs are not in the budget..

Back on her wheels!



Little more progress today... :thumby: Just waiting for the steering and the new axle shaft to show up.

Pinion angle set, just gotta check for bind at full droop. And yes I know I need a new muffler...Jack stand incident!!

New brake lines installed



Little more work done. Made new rear brake lines and checked driveshaft angle at full droop. Right at the 30 degrees Tom Woods recommends! With my anti-wrap bar on, the joint at the pinion should be straight.





More progress...
I got the front d-shaft mounted and modified the x-member. Looking at the angles, a double cardan shaft is in the future! Ran into one problem, I bought a 1310 yoke from BGY and they sent me a 1330...which I already had . I didnt pay attention and installed it. To my suprise yesterday I had a u-joint issue. I ended up with a bastard u-joint in the front 1310-1330 joint aka Spicer 5-134X. Just waiting on the steering and trac-bar bracket.



Got the steering and trac-bar done. Just need an alignment and some longer shocks. 7/8" Heim joints, 1 1/2" .250 wall DOM tubing for the tie rod and drag link!



A few pics of the test run...at the Hammers! Ran great...but I would like to extend the radius arms quite a bit...







Here are the most recent pics of the B2, I have done a few mods to her for the Ultimate Adventure. Getting ready for the trip, I swapped in a 4.0. Installed beadlocks on my wheels and added Goodyear MTR's. Replaced the POS Milemarker winch with a Warn and added a stinger. I like the new look. However, after the trip...I now have lots of things to fix and upgrade!

Awesome! Good work on the build.

I really like the bumper/stinger. Now you just need a paintjob, poo-brown was never the best color

Is that Junkie's BII in the background of the pic when you still had a TTB?

RUTH...its been built for almost 2 years now with the SAS. Just recently I did the upgrades for the UA trip. I normally post over on BroncoII.org and thats where you have seen it. I have been a lurker on here for a long time and Andrew talked me into coming over and posting more. Thought this would be a good intro to TRS.

However after the UA trip...I definately have a few mods to make. Hydro assist steering is a must! A few others are important but I would say that is the top of the list.

Here are a few pics off Petersens website. I cant post much more till after the magazine comes out. I do have 3 trips coming up, so I should have some new pics then too!
