    Thinking about a solid axle swap for my truck...

    Yeah I had actually read Junkies info on another forum or thread. Being in Alaska a D30 is going to 1000x easier and cheaper to come by. And the other reason I want a D30 is because i can pull one from a newer jeep and keep front abs and swap on manual hubs much easier. The reason i dont'...

    Thinking about a solid axle swap for my truck...

    Alright so I have a 99' Supercab 3.0L 4x4. I've got a manual trans/t-case, swapped in explorer leafs and an expo 8.8 in the back already. Cranked the t bars but with the addition of the explorer rear end stuff it now sits like 2 - 3" taller then the front again. Currently i've got the IFS with...

    Duratec 2.3l terrible gas mileage

    I think its like ever extra 100lb's will see you a drop of .5 - 1 % drop in fuel economy. Ok well is the truck auto or manual and are you using cruise control in a hilly area? Cruise Control will only really work if your driving very flat roads. Otherwise its actually very inefficent, becuase...

    Duratec 2.3l terrible gas mileage

    If you didn't increase the tires size then it shouldn't affect the MPG's that much... However short slow city driving will kill mileage, and put alot of wear and tear on your truck. if you take less then 30 minutes to drive it where ever in winter then its not warming up fully and carbon and...

    not your normal speedometer problem

    Your truck (if its the 94) won't have this modual. It will have a gear in the back of the transmission or t case that you change to adjust the spedometer.Perhaps its not in quite right or have you pulled the dash out recently? I know on my 84 I pulled the dash out for something and when i...
