    Rockwell 2.5 Tons

    This should all be obvious but...If this is your first 4x4 ever than I suggest you slow down just a bit. Figure out exactly what you want to accomplish with your money, time, truck etc. Do some reading...books, service manuals, tech info, build threads, articles, etc. Google search. If you know...

    Rockwell 2.5 Tons

    This should at least get you started. Step one: Cut off back half of frame, attach several feet of exhaust tubing for sliders and a good strong base for a roll cage.;missingteeth; Setp two: place rockwell axle behind hacked up ranger

    Rockwell 2.5 Tons

    Rockwells should bolt right up, although 35's are a little big, Id go 31's max unless you want to be replacing shafts everytime you go out.

    what coils to use???

    any of the jeep xj lift coils should be about right running a dana 30...... .....and modify your coil buckets to retain the coils similar to a Jeep and you will have all the flex you need.

    Stubborn 8.8 C-clip removal with Detroit Truetrac

    Stubborn 8.8 C-clip removal with Detroit Truetrac

    It will spin on, and/or with, the axle shaft but there is no room to push or pry the c clip off towards the pinion because it hits the enclosed truetrac body. I might end up calling Detroit's customer service line. Thanks for the quick replies.

    Stubborn 8.8 C-clip removal with Detroit Truetrac

    That may work, I tried to ratchet strap the axle tight onto/into the diff housing but that didnt move it enough. I also tried smacking the flange with a BFH to loosen up the seal some and using 3 C-clamps from the flange to the drum backing plate to press the shaft in but nothing works....I...

    Stubborn 8.8 C-clip removal with Detroit Truetrac

    I am having trouble removing the passenger side c-clip from an Explorer 8.8 axle. It is a '93 Explorer Drum brake 8.8. It has been regeared with a new carrier (Detroit Truetrac). The truetrac is essentially a solid body design with the helical gear limited slip internals hidden. This makes a...

    What axle shafts(U-Joints) are these?

    Those look to me to be the larger size 5-297 u joints, the same that are used in Dana 35 and Dana 44 axles. If you can measure the diameter of the caps with a caliper to know for sure. If they measure 1 3/16" then I would say run them as is, If you are wheeling your truck hard then grab some...
