That's a pretty clean looking ride! I'd be scared to actually race it! NORRA would be rad with it though!

What are you guys using brand wise for torque wrenches? I have just noticed my 40yo craftsman is no longer accurate and craftsman won't recalibrate it due to its age. Any suggestions? I'm kinda leaning towards getting another craftsman but was wondering what you guys have?

What are you looking to do with it? Crawl? Go fast? Daily drive/commute with it? No dirt at all? budget? Little of everything?

I use a Brown Line digital 1/2", Craftsman 3/8" and 1/4"....I had a Snap On 1/2" about 5 years ago, but it broke and they wouldn't replace it, trying to up-sell me so I chunked it. I even have cheap harbor freight ones I use now and then for not so critical things, but satisfies my OCD lol

I've never been much of a snap on fan. Super expensive and independently sold. So when it breaks of course the guy making payments on the truck wants to sell another tool. I guess I'll be shopping sears in the near future.

1984-85 for solid axle front. 86-current for IFS. "Of course you can always swap solid axle in depending on what you want to do with it. On the early years, a 22RE is a good little 4banger. I prefer auto trans, but the Toy autos rob a lot of power. My '84 had a 22R, Marlin built W56, inchworm dual cases, FROR/ Allpro suspension, for what it was, it was pretty awesome.....of course my experience is from rockcrawling only. I also had a '94, but that was a whole different beast.

Andy, You should get this beast and throw some suspension at it. 4 wheel drive and pretty unique, and it has a built on camper shell! haha

Like Garza said then, the older ones are solid axle and can be built as crazy as you want to go but with just a couple mild mods can do really well! The catch is finding an older one in good condition to be reliable. Slap on some good leafs, bigger tires, gear it and maybe double up the T-case and you're styling! 22R or 22RE are bullet proof great motors.

Newer ones, with the "little cash as possible" clause... I'm not sure I'd go that route. They can be built to work but once you go IFS the cash involved goes up in price pretty substantially.

Cheap SUV... I'm biased but 91-94 Expos are DIRT cheap and if you're not afraid to get dirty and do the work yourself can be built to be pretty gnarly for cheap. Follow Andy's lead. D44 beams out of the junkyard. Cheap custom set of hangers, build/buy some radius arms. F150 coil, LONG shocks up front. Set of leafs and LONG shocks in the rear and game on! Don't waste your time on any exploder '95 or newer though, junk!!!

God I can't wait for an Atlas so I don't have to use the clutch while wheeling!!!!
