What are you going to do on the beam?
Stock wheels? BFG tires?RustabusParticipantMay 7, 2019 at 6:06 pmPost count: 2078
Pull it and put in this stocker I’ve had forever! 🙂
Also have these redux boxes waiting! Have sets of powder coated rims for this in 14 and 15, not sure if I wanna go all meaty on the tires but I want them off-road worthy!FranzKeymasterMay 7, 2019 at 6:25 pmPost count: 3923
So adjusters on the beam, and all new bearings in the reduction boxes and front end.RustabusParticipantMay 8, 2019 at 6:47 amPost count: 2078
You know Best!!! I’m gonna shoot for all new/rebuilt parts and try to start out right on this lift job! Order up whatever I need!!!! Bearings, adjusters, shocks, tires…..what else??? (Please!) 🙂
I’ve got E brake cables and rims, that’s it! 🙂John JonesKeymasterMay 8, 2019 at 7:36 amPost count: 7352
I think you should just do it like you do customers Franz… Just flip the springs and call it good… 😎 Some Bilsteins would be good… 😎ColeBModeratorMay 8, 2019 at 7:58 amPost count: 2001
I’d recommend the bilsteins from a stock beam perspective! Excited to rally them off-road next weekend and give them the true test. They are also blue and yellow which =speedPat KKeymasterMay 8, 2019 at 8:12 amPost count: 1655
Finished up basic engine wiring yesterday. This one has a few extra wires, for worry gauges, to hook up that I need to speak to Franz about.
Fit the oil cooler housing. Had to fill in the gaps with a bit of filler for a flush fit.
Sanded and laid down some spray polly.
Also mounted the oil filter and crank case breather.
Sanded and sealed the cooler housing this morning.
Mike was here yesterday and started on his front window seal. Hoping I see him today. We need some oil lines, and some perforated stainless for oil cooler housing grills.
We will build it if it comes.FranzKeymasterMay 8, 2019 at 8:39 amPost count: 3923
Stainless punch plate is probably a mcmaster item.
Tell Mike to “hurry up” like you did Will. 🙂
I’ll try to come in tomorrow morning. This ankle is still hurting like crazy.RustabusParticipantMay 8, 2019 at 6:45 pmPost count: 2078

Mike grabbed some expanded alum. yesterday for the snorkel grills. I got them bent up and in by days end. Mike went to get oil lines made up today. Parker store was out of stainless braided line. Should have everything tomorrow for final install.
We will build it if it comes.BAJAMIKEParticipantMay 9, 2019 at 8:24 pmPost count: 11
