I'm running the Dodge 2500 MC as well. Zero issues on my end. Had to make my own push rod out of a grade 8 bolt that I ground the head down on.


Also welcome to the YJ unlimited club. Those 37s look small, time to step up to some 42s. They're more proportional on our long WB rigs.

i AGREE The 37s came with the axles but my friend has 40s on his unstretched CJ so we might swap.

ended up making a new drive shaft with parts on hand so I could get rolling, had to put the slip on the bottom which I don't like but good enough for now. There is no substitute for fleaxing out for real, which I have not done yet but best I can tell from jacking up here the front shaft only slides about 1 inch either way. Will see when I can get out and drive it in the rocks.

Meantime, got the master cyl and put it in but none of my friends were avail this weeking to help bleed it so have not been able to drive it yet. Ended up with this one" 1998 DODGE B3500 5.9L V8 from rockauto for $50 shipped. Literally bolted right in, fittings hooked right up and just had to turn the push rod adjustment out about 1 turn.

Spent the rest of the weekend doing oil changes and started on widening the trailer.

How close are you to being wheelable? My crews season opener in Truckhaven is the weekend of the 23rd.

Ready, except need to drive and flex the thing before commiting to an actual run. Hoping to get the trailer done this weekend then drag it someplace to test.

good progress on the trailer widening. Just need to finish this side tonight and start on the other, which will probably take half as long.
