So, steering with 37" tires and a locker up front sucks......
Time to do something about it.
I think this is my plan, but I was wondering if anyone else has ever done it.
I am going to use the the stock pump and stock gear box. :shok:
Ya or No?
Money is tight, so I was going to give it a go like...
lol I did not have a tractor though... I made due though.
Then what I did is just sent my passenger axle shaft to dutchman axle and had them take off the same amount as I took from the tube.

I have the same set up. I am running 44 high pinion and soon to be 9" with 5.13s. You will need a new carrier for the 44; however, I don't think you need a new one for the 9". Is your 9" a 31 or 35 spline? Also, with the dana 44 and 9" the lowest gears you can go and still find matching ratios...
Anyone ever use a clarke welder before???
what did you think?
I was kind of looking at this one.
I don't have $700 to spend on another nice one, right now.
Get a full width dana 44 so you can have the high pinion. The EB axles also come with 260x (small) u-joints. If you find a high pinion with disk brakes they come with 5-297x u-joints. Bigger is better, go with a full width dana 44 high pinion with disk brakes.
That's what I did. Narrowing them...
Here is the new build thread i have been working on. I have a lot to update. I built a new trany mount and i finished my bumper. It looks pretty good :)
This is what I use.
Loaded they are at 17 and 3/4 which is about what you want right?
The picture of the coils on the website is a bit off though. This is what it will look like. They ride nice and have...
So I figured I would post a build thread so everyone can see what I did. Maybe it will help someone.
Picture as of 5/20/2013
79 dana 44 high pinion, 5.13 mini spool, warn hubs, 6" TJ lift coils, narrowed 5", f250 shock towers, custom coil buckets (for jeep coils), high steer using...
So I have a 2.9l and the alternator that comes with, just doesn't cut it. I have a 12000 lb winch and off road lights. Is there anything I can to to improve the system i have or possibly an alternator switch?
let me know thanks.
I will let you guys know. However, I do not know how soon that will be because I have no time.
I got the parts for the single pice drive line swap. I have an 89, so i had to get the bigger yoke for my rear axle.
I think I will be doing the swap on memorial day weekend. :yahoo:
The u-joints are smaller in the classic bronco axles. If you are narrowing the f-150 axle then just shorten the passenger side. Then you can send the passenger side inner axle shaft to dutchman axles to get it shortened and re-splined. That's the easiest and cheapest way to do it. That's what it...
ya your weld does suck, but you have a bigger problem. I see you have the bracket bolted to your radius arms and then welded to your axle. Those radius arms are made so they can move a little bit. That is why there are big C bushings. Something is going to give. Either your weld brakes or your...
I like them alright. I haven't had any problems with them and they are way better for flexing out than my 1' stock ranger radius arms.
They also kind of look stock too... which i kind of like. i have had people ask if it actually is stock haha
any who, i think my next project is a one peace...
Haha i love the conversations that go on this thread!! We are having way to much fun.
The steering radius is pretty close, maybe ever better. The only problem I have found is that my tires rub against my radius arms when I am turned all the way. You may want to invest in some offset wheels or...
