No more like big and green and heavily armed like the super mutants from fallout 3. And yeah, if the pants stayed kinda makes you wonder what happens to the underwear. gives new meaning to the phrase tighty whities.

Well, I'm officially back among the living; don't tell anyone, though, because the holiday was actually quite nice.

It took me awhile to look over all of the helpful tips that people posted about gears; I'd be lying if I said I understood everything at this point. I do think that I need to procure a spreader, though; I'm sure I could easily do the job without one but I'd rather have it on-hand and not need it than to do it the other way around. Therefore...

...I'm hoping that this is the case. I looked up quite a few designs and it seems that there are two basic ways to go about it: you either build one that bolts into the cover holes on the side of the housing, or you build one that clamps into the recesses that are sort of there for that purpose. The former is far more popular than the latter, even though it seems that it could introduce a bit of unwanted deflection into the housing...perhaps not enough to matter. I don't know which one I'll go with, yet...but either way I could use the welding practice.

That's the popular variant...and yes, it's ugly but it works. Mine will probably be uglier.

That's pretty much the summation of it that I got, yes. A single bolt and nut on the outermost cover holes seems like it would work best for this design...but I still think that stretching the case along the central axis - i.e. the recesses that are sort of there for that purpose - would be optimal.

Damn right, it's time for that! Glad to have you along for the ride.

I'll return the favor with some Highland Winter Ale tomorrow. If I'm feeling up to it, I might scrap those axle wedges on Friday.

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.

Completely off topic but if that is the case I highly recommend the two issue graphic novel Future Imperfect starring Big Green himself.

I digress, back to topic!

Today's Jeeping: Wedge-removal from an axle housing, and possibly a factory swaybar removal, too...all depending on whether or not I feel energetic, of course.

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.

Have we given up entirely on this " girly things" kit or did I miss it during my adventures in working 14 hour days?

... and see what it's really going to take to build one...and then I'm going to triple that cost/time estimate and see how I feel.

Best gas milage from my Jeep to date: The time I pushed it across the lot at work.

I've worked with a Dana 30 and an 8.8, and in both cases, er, situations the carrier came out with little effort. I suppose, though, if you were setting up a new gear set a spreader would be needed.

I'm rather ashamed to admit this is the first time I've read this thread in quite a long time. I didn't read very far back, so disregard this if I'm rehashing previously articulated ideas...

'98 Wrangler Sahara - SOLD

'91 Ranger XLT 2WD - 4.0 V6, A4"hell"D, contemplating twin turbo 5.3

'79 C10 Big Ten 2WD - 350, TH350, contemplating rebuilding to 355ci with supercharger and programmable EFI

'12 Subaru Forester (AKA: Arctic Cat) - 2.5, non-CVT, wife's, still begging her to let me get an exhaust system


'01 SV650 - snorkelectomy, ebay slip-on, cam swap and re-jet in the near future

Update: Much work and appertaining tiredness. I have pictures of axle progress, but I haven't sorted them out yet...mostly because I'm slack. Oh, I also have a red tailgate sitting on my porch; that's Beasley's fault.

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.
