One step forward, three steps back for me at this time. I have the Rusty's 8 inch long arm on, and the front axle under her so she can roll outside and get some sun, but the next step is locating the track bar properly on the axle.
I can't do that without loading her down with the engine, tranny and x fer case, but I don't want to do that until the undercarriage is cleaned, fixed and painted, so my gears have shifted to my floorboards for now. Maybe late this year or early next year is when I can continue with the lift. I am getting excited seeing her sit up high, but my goal is absolutely NO RUST!!!! Oh well, that is how it goes,,,better get back to the garage and do something productive now.

Once something significant is done, I will post pictures.

If I knew the weights of the components, I could cheat a bit, but this stage gives me the excuse to just finish the underneath to my demanding standards I suppose.

Got to get the floor boards in one piece for now, then continue on the lift. I hate rust, so some things need to be addressed before I get too deep in this Rust'y 8+ lift. So far, so good as far as the stance of the vehicle. More to come.
Some sponsorship would help for this project, but in the meantime, I will continue to work on it at a snails pace!
Patience is a virtue!

I can't believe that I am the only one out here who has done/been working on a Rusty's 8+ lift. Anybody???



Sure would like to share some war stories.

When drilling thru the frame for the cross member brackets for the Rusty's long arm, I only hope you are planning on doing some floorboard replacement at the time. BECAUSE, there are inner-frame reinforcements that will be hidden in the process, unless you have the floor open already. I would have been mad if my floor was solid before I took on this mission.

What axles are you thinking about for running 37s?
