Question.... Will it do a wheelie?

it does wicked *** wheelies


Seriously it does....clutch needs adjusting as it doesn't fully disengage.


Drove it down the street and back after swapping in my new lift springs.  clutch needs adjusted.  better alignment.  still need to finish up wiring some junk on it which will be the plans for this weekend I think.

not sure how I missed updating this thread!

looming got a bit melty and that was all.

Fought a bad misfire all summer of 2016 (idled fine but would drop cylinders BAD over 1200rpm)  Found that cap was shorting out to a braided fuel line jacket.  rerouted and was tip top after that.

Then picked up a cylinder dropping occasionally and it ended up being a cracked porcelain on #3

Had a thump in the seat and ended up being my driveshaft that was fabbed 1/2" too long and was bottoming out.

Spat the bolts out of a ring gear in the rear axle destroying the e-locker carrier.




Then broke a tooth on a front ring gear out playing around.


Caught a stump at 10mph on a trail with the front axle:




Swapped out the 4.7:1 gears in the rear transfer case for just stock 2.28 ratio gears.

Rebuilt my steering column so I could add a new smaller ujoint to clear a larger double diaphragm booster I upgraded to.

Swapped in my front left springs (all-Pro's) and some GM bumpstops that really smoothed the ride out.

Added a long slip front driveline

Wheeled the **** out of it.
