Sure. Ill buy the parts and you bring the welder. We'd have to move the ram and figure up a panhard bar.

OH I got some things up my sleeves for mine. Remember my axle doesn't have the wedges on it anymore.

That's not an acronym but the last four letters of my first name "Laurits" which is a Danish name. :-)

Speaking of axles and wedges, anybody know how to figure the proper pinion angle? I'm about to ditch the blocks on my 96 and modify the spring perches and shackle mounts to reduce axle wrap and want to get the new perches right

Lets discuss this in March. I really would like your input on it. I was thinking of using these ballistic mounts as a coil mount and building custom arms.

Just over two weeks away! I still have to replace 3 brake assemblies on the trailer, mount the new tow pig tires, and add a hitch on my gooseneck to pull the camper.

Ima try and drive mine around town a bit and get used to its interstate manners again. I also need to make sure all of my recovery stuff is in there. The navigator will have most of the tools, but I'll carry around a few things.

Brand new here but liking what I see especially seeing my fellow Georgians. Would love to get up there but I just got my bronco and its not ready. Lift tires and wheels being installed now get her back tomorrow. Do you guys in Ga ride together regularly? I'm in Dawsonville.

We don't ride as regularly as we should. The few who do get together are pretty spread out.

Bump reminder to nega, n al, and tn peeps...this is weekend after next (if anyone still reads this stuff). One thing I'd like to stress to whomever might see this and be nervous about what the trails are like, let me assure its a place for everyone, and you'll never know if its something you like to do unless you try it. I was nervous the first time, hell I'm a little nervous now with an untested truck, but if you've been dumping money into it like I have, this is the perfect place to test/shakedown. Plus, Id bet there's a few extra seats to ride in if your truck isn't quite where you want it to be (ask me how I know, sh1t I've ridden far more than I've driven). I'd love to see some new faces and maybe even a few of you old farts too.

I am trying to get there. Had two set backs last week that I am not working on. The biggest being my guys screwed up my trailer on Friday and now I am trying to get that fixed. I have to get the front tongue cut off and re-welded. The other is the bronco started running crazy again last week. Just shut off on the way home friday. Needless to say Friday was not a good day.

I feel you, right now my front axle for my trailer is down to just spindles. Ordered the new brake drum assemblies with bearings and seals and only one has come in and the bearings and seals are trashed from bad packing.

Was looking at the forecast and it rain and rain and some more rain. It's snowing there now also. It looks like it will be a muddy mess.

Its so much more fun when its icy and wet let me tell you. Theres nothing quite like backing down a mountain. I can guarantee you one thing: I will never again make way for any side by sides...they can just wait their asses behind me.
