Nearing completion -spy pics

And all in time for the end of the season

Mods done this year:

AX-15 to TF999 Auto
Dana 300
79 Waggy Dana 44 full rebuild w/Roggy high steer
Waggy front springs, mount relocated up 1.5" on frame
F-150 rear springs, mount relocated up 6". Custom mount from fabbed up bumper, all this giving me 101" wheelbase.
Homemade belly-up skidplate...and a whole bunch more to do.





-edit, how the heck do I get pics to show..I used IMG?

Damn! Is it tall enough?
How much do you think the springs will sag?
What size rubbers will it have when complete?
Nice work.

Ya the spring rate is kinda scary at the moment. The F-150 rears will settle a bit as for the front I am kinda concerned considering those are 24 year old waggy springs I am hoping when I reinstall the 8274 it will weigh er down a bit. Tires I am staying on the 35's till I get rich again. Lots to do before heading up to a 38.5 that I would like -4.88's Warn shafts CTMS...and a few other beef up things.

Looks like you could get some mad flex with some p235s

I've felt the hate rise up in me, kneel down and clear the stone of leaves, I wander over where you can't see, inside my shell, I wait and bleed... Goodbye!

Yup been that big for a while but the new springs ans W.B will be sweet. The 44 will also save me cursing and taking apart my Dana 30 every time I hit the trail.

Calgary's a bit of a drive from here but we are thinking of doing a west coast trip someday, we will make sure to stop by on our way out, or if you have the time free we could all do some runs.

I was planning on a Canada-tour for this year - but being laid off kinda screwed them plans. I had 7 weeks of vacation coming to me!

I was hoping to drive across Canada in my Jeep - with only my stereo and a tent trailer for company. I was going to take all the little known back roads, and visit many trails along the way.
