Haha jason, how did i know you were gunna try to schwindle me out of my drive flanges?lol. Good news though. Got the fuel cell in this weekend. One step closer. I think im gunna scratch the front stretch and just do the RK rear stretch and build up my axles. Maybe stretch the front in years to come. Dont want to put too much on my plate at one time.
Should i stick with the dual piston calipers that come with the hp60? I would like to do hummer dbl beads but i might just do weld on beads on some cheap 15" steelies.
Haha, you seen my inbetween words
I have a set no worrys, plus they make easy trail spares no real parts to loose. Hell you can even duct tape the drive flange into the hub body if you lost the OEM cap and seal.
I really like my duel piston calipers up front with Chevy 1/2's in the rear. I'm having a brake issue now and I have it narrowed down to a bad caliper, but for 7 or so years that combo was killer, still is.
I could very easly stop with 39's and no upgrades done to the master Cyl.
There was another thread about the H1 where I expressed some of my opinions on them.
I love the design, I hate the fact that there 16.5"s. Thats what it boils down to, there very tuff rims but your very limted to selction of tire.
For me 8+ years ago I went with 16" Iroks in the 39" flavor. I'm outer beadlocked with a kit from one of the major companys, forgot now.
Now If I was you I would skip the 15" and go straight to a 17".
Why you ask well selction and side wall are where its at now. The less side wall the less you pinch and of course 17's are a very popular size in NON DOT tire's like comp tire's or the very popular Red Lable's.
But even a Irok can be had in the 17", 39's or 42's. So If i where starting out with a mojor build, me I would skip the 15" and the 16.5" and head to a 17" rim.
Early 2000 Dodge 2500's and SRW 3500's had a stock 17 rim and are found in most junkyards now. They share the same 8 on 6.5 pattern as our one tons and offer a small 7" wide rim, wich when done with a weld on kit will be around 8.5" wide. IMO is perfect for a Red lable or a 13.5" Irok.
Thats puts more pressure on the inner side wall so the bead wont blow out as easy.
My next purchase ( big purchase ) is Red Lable's hands down they work. The Jeep wont see them, the buggy that I have slated to start in the late fall will get them.
Its 2K worth of tire but they will new and should last at least 3-4 years behind 350HP.
Nothing is better as far as tire's go, but they come at a big expense, well worth it IMO.
