Yeah I suspected that for awhile. Just got to the point I was tired of fixing the damn thing EVERY time I went out. Now I'm having fun spanking Jeeps offroad , upgrading and taking side hills like a H1.
Next is getting a new body. Something in the 2000's with the opening back doors.
And I'll add my 2 cents ( Canadian ) here. I had no problem with the D35 wheel bearing coming loose or ball joint life. Even made my own custom steering that worked pretty good. Keep in mind I don't drive on the street, trailer it everywhere.
But I could not keep an axle shaft in it. All most...
Been awhile since I've been around here. Finally have time to mess with my Ranger. I installed a pair of used Duff coil buckets and new EB coils . Unfortunately the coils are way ,way to soft. Don't know what I was thinking when I bought them 190lbs springs.
Anyways, what's the latest in...
Some of the old WWII 6x6 trucks used a transfer case with 2 rear outputs. The front rear diff was offset to the same side as the t-case drop with a driveshaft connecting the two. The back diff driveshaft was a two piece with the carrier bearing mounted on top of the front diff.
Don't know if...
If anyone was interested , he has it built and there are 2 videos. For those who don't know, this is a Jeep built for KOH 2011 with a much modified TTB D50 .
scroll down ,you'll see them.
