Hi all,

I am building a Dune Runner based on an early Bronco frame. I want to use a Dana 44 TTB out of a full size 90's Bronco.

Does anyone have any info on modification to the beams for longer travel than stock applications?

Thanks, Jim

No idea, but it was not the wisest to post more then once :rofl:

Dont pre runner sites have stuff like that? I know the ford ranger is a popular one.

1) Lengthen the beams as much as possible.
2) Angle the pivot bolt bushings so that each bolt points at its own radius arm bracket (opposite side). That'll allow it to droop fully, limited only by the shocks, radius arm bushings, & limit straps.
3) Angle the radius arm bushings down for more downtravel.

i believe that camburg suspension makes someone for the TTB makes the alot wider.
Thanks,

If I can't find any info on cutting, and turning them myself I will probably go with those.

There was an Explorer done several years ago that had around 20-22 inches of travel from the TTB. There used to be an outstanding build series on offroad.com, but no idea if it still exists. They went into how to build the jigs and all the mods to make it strong again. Sorry, don't have a link anymore.

a prerunner bronco...doesnt sound like the greatest rig i would get something with A arms or you would have to beef up the TTB big time to withstand jumping and actually anything with the weight of a bronco. i would say get a ranger for a jumper prolly cheaper and easier to work on also.. but hey i could be wrong.
