Re: Ghetto Suspension

Ditch the tall spring perch and custom build a perch that sits close to level with the top of the axle tube and make it longer than stock. The more surface area the perch has with the springs the better. This should reduce the leverage on the springs and help a lot with axle wrap. I have always want...

Re: The Glorified Tonka Truck

I forgot to mention but my dash bar was done after all of the roof area was done, With the A pillar legs cut short and nothing yet tacked to the floor this allowed me just enough wiggle room to place the dash bar and get it fully welded before I sleeved the A pillar and welded it to the floor plates.

Re: The Glorified Tonka Truck

I tacked mine together then pulled the A pillar bars out and tilted it forward. This allowed me to weld everything up except the A pillar. I then stood it back up and tacked in the A pillar. I then cut about 8 inches off the end of the A pillar. This gave me enough clearence to weld up everything pr...

Re: Has the forum been abandoned?

Haven't talked to the current leadership much. Will ask if they have decided not to use it. Would be a bit disappointing, leaving out a lot of members on the forum who aren't in school anymore. Exactly. I have heard of a lot of new members but havent seen any new sign ups. There are quite a few peo...

Re: Treehugger

Got ya I misunderstood. I looked at this at one point and most of the stuff I read recommended using marine battery switches. I never did install one though. https://www.waytekwire.com/item/44043/Battery-Selector-Master/?gclid=Cj0KCQjw5LbWBRDCARIsALAbcOcff2H1K0voA-qe-NejHmYWofYvG-fYU-4h-YJLltTRIbv7c...

Re: Treehugger

Terry look into the superwinch contactor aka albright solenoid. I retrofitted a warn with superwich stuff it was a lot cheaper and worked fine. Also try and put everything under the hood. It keeps everything out of the rain and snow salt mess. I did this on the 83 and I have had no issues with the o...
