yeah saw that one, guy must be crazy! I've been keeping an eye out for a decent running/looking (and cheap ) Jeep truck for a while, be it a J10/Comanche I don't think a 20 would fit in the garage. I'm in no hurry the right one will pop up eventually! There's a pretty clean Comanche on cl now but it has a 2.8 GM.

Not sure, last time that we went through was at night and she had a metal gate that was open. From looking at Google Earth there are a few trails that go around her gate.

That is going to be one long front driveshaft. In the first picture it looks like the pumpkin was going to be offset to the passengers side, but the finished ones looked like it is centered right in front of the engine.

I don't imagine it would be any longer then say a rear shaft on a standard cab truck that's not using a 2 piece and carrier bearing. And on top of that it doesn't have to worry about plunge or u-joint angles since the t-case and diff are solid mounted in relation to each other.












Did you notice in the quote they're talking IRS trailing arm? Typically that would be something along these lines assuming it's really what they mean!
