    How to pick a JY A4LD

    What sort of things do you guys look for when grabbing an A4LD from a junkyard. I just came back from a you pick with an A4LD as they're on sale right now for $60 :headbang: and I'm hoping it'll be ok. The fluid looked nice and cherry and didn't smell burnt. There was a rubber seal drilled into...

    Lookout Lake Loop (56k warning)

    Well today we decided to head out to Mystery Creek FSR and pick up where we left off on our winter excursion that stopped us short of our goal. The weather was perfect & I highly doubted we'd be stopped by snow this time! :D made it through the rock garden that claimed a hub on my way...

    Yet another addition

    Well I was finally able to mount my rear bumper with swingaway tire carrier. I had to make some modifications to it to make it fit as well as reinforced the mounting brackets, but she's super solid and looks pretty good in my opinion. Next is rock sliders and build a custom bumper for the front...

    Would like Alburn Locker ected input

    Well after I burn through all 6 of my used replacement hubs, I'll give a set of those a try!:D Are all the internals still the same, just a matter of slipping the hub on, or do I need to replace anything? I'm rather fond of the hub being the weak spot as it's fairly easy to repair, I wonder...

    what's the best way to lift a 2005 Rnager 4x4

    A buddy has an 05 ranger and wants to lift it, he 'claims' leveling kits are no longer available. What are his options? He's already cranked the torsion bars, but still wants more. Any help is appreciated. :beer:

    Would like Alburn Locker ected input

    I'm running them front & rear in my ranger and so far I'm really impressed with them. The one down side is that I tend to get a little too excited with the skinny pedal and have blown up 2 hubs in the process, but the hubs are cheapies ford/warn/milemarker/noname type. I'm thinking of either zap...

    Snow Wheeling

    Well finally after just about a year of BS I finally got to test out my ranger off road. It all started last May with installing the lift, then came the axles & lockers, tires & flares and just recently completed the 4.0 swap. I've still got to throw an Aerostar 8.8 in the rear to widen the...

This morning, I drove about 10 blocks to the store, everything was fine. Coming home, it all went south. Here's the symptoms: Starts...

    Exploder 5.0 + ZF Trans swap

    Hey there, I tried a search but came up empty. I'm wanting to swap an exploder 5.0 mated with a ZF tranny into my 91 explorer. I can get a 96 explorer 5.0 but they only come with automatics. Can anyone help me find any links on how to run the computer with a ZF standard tranny? :icon_cheers:

    Mounting shocks outside the frame rails

    I'm throwing an 8.8 out of an aerostar in my '91 extended cab, and was planning on mounting the rear shocks vertical outside the frame rails. I'll be welding in some shock towers to the frame just above the rear tires. The reasoning for this is that I don't like how the current set up has the...

    Aerostar 8.8 swap

    Well I mounted my fender flares the other day and came to the realization that the current 8.8 isn't wide enough to make the tires and flares look good... (mounted are 34x10.5 LTB's, I wanted fairly skinny tires for better performance under varrying conditions) I didn't want to use wheel...
