Good morning i hope your well rested, i have some garage stuff to show you plus we'll be hitting the trail today.
But first how about some video action you first saw me going down the crevice, this is going up.
Step into my garage one of my next upgrades besides 4:88 gearing and Auburn Ected Max Lockers fwd and aft, was a very expensive
Stak 4x4 3 speed Monster Box, with 1:1, 3:1, & 5:1 gears. I really liked the thought of being able to dislocate the rear drive tran from the frt,
for a couple of reasons but ill get into that later. West Coast Bronco along with others including four wheeler did a write up on them back in 2006.
heres the link to West Coast Bronco. West Coast Broncos
Unfortunately the company went belly up with a dispute amounst the ranks,
and some of the forums talk of the units having issues but i cant say i witnessed any of that. I love my monster box.
This is the 3 sticks, first stick on left is controls front axle, middle (yellowhead) stick controls low 3:1 & 5:1, right stick controls the rear.
The postioning of the sticks determine your gearing ratios.
The outside sticks straight back is 4 high move them forward for low and then move the middle stick fwd for 3:1 or pull it back for 5:1 (99:1 to the ground)
I call the yellow head knob Go slow herman. I dont have any clue why!!!
The next upgrade i did was my Hydro Assist Steering. I was tired of being in a spot trying to turn and couldnt turn the wheel, so i did some research and found
westtexasoffroad home of the RedNeck Ram. I think Bonsai and Cstrike both are running them. I wouldnt do without it, 2nd best upgrade i did.
I did the saginaw pump upgrade at the same time and added (though illegal a steering knob).
Being that the ram doesnt return to center 100% i had to figure out an easy, quick way to disconnect and connect plus mnt the ram when driving on the freeway.
So your seeing the original mounting bracket for my ram I'll explain the change in few more post.
Lets go outside and play. Heres just a couple of random photos. Doing some bumper dragging.
One day Ill drive all the way over this rock. shoot maybe we"ll make a video of it during the contest.
These pictures were of my trial run with the Deavers coils and 5150 Bilsteins. A couple of these you've already seen, but the comparsions are undeniable.
This picture shows the same rock but with the Super Lift stiffy non flexy coils
Remember the night run well its now day light the video is grainy, however it has alot of tire floating action with unseen devastation! costly too.
What you didnt hear at the end or did you? I gernaded the rear end. Heres where my transfer case come in to play I was able to dislocate the rear end back down the hill take a bypass and drive up with the frt axles pulling me.
Now I was about 7 miles from pavement, so My friends went on wheeling & I took my broke/lame horse home. 2 miles down the road rearend locked up on me, I had to open the rear cover and fish chunks of gears out so it would roll.
Now I'm on the pavement still doing the frt wheel drive thing, and every so often the rear end would catch and I'd almost come to a dead stop, needless to say it was an interesting trek back to town but I made it.
Time to head to work. Prepare for tonight.
