    That looked like it was a ton of work.

    What plans do you have for the lift? Long arms?

    Ya... she didn't want to cooperate with me! The 44 housing is sitting in the back yard. I figure it will help with the sale when I pull the D30/44 out.

    The next stage is a 2 year plan... Throw the axles, suspension and tires under the frame this winter. Then next winter swap the drivetrain and body.

    Picked up some goodies from TMR to assist with getting the axles under the frame. Nothing too special... Johnny Joints, 14 Bolt truss/pinion gaurd, hood pin kit and coil mounts.

    For the rear I picked up a 14 Bolt that a buddy had kicking around.



    Pulled the cover... Found the carrier had been damaged and the cover had actually been welded up but no metal chunks anywhere. R&P look mint so I'm hoping that the carrier bearings might be new? I'm guessing when it was in a truck it was backed into something crushing through the diff cover and taking chunks out of the carrier when it was spinning. Oh well, find another carrier.





    This should pass a safety, right? Pulled the drum brake assembly off.

    "LJ Fetish"... So to make more room in the tub and stretch the wheelbase I decided to go hunting for an Unlimited frame. Luck for me I actually found one, a 2005. Cut whatever brackets I figured I wouldn't need and threw on some primer on to the bare metal areas. Not too sure if sandblasting is the route I will go or just wire wheel the surface rust areas.

    After removing the brakes and cutting off all the brackets I decided to clean all the dirt off the center section before removing the carrier... Once I had it cleaned I noticed two markings on the center section. One appeared to have a piece of metal sticking out and the other appeared to have a crack, both on the top side. After pulling the carrier I could clearly see what had happened. After the explosion in the diff someone had cleaned everything out and then welded up the damaged center section. After finding this I decided to find another 14B.







    I do have a couple questions about the wheel studs and brakes. I plan on running 3/4 ton rotors on the 14B, any suggestions on running 3/4 ton rotors on the front D60 with a different caliper/bracket setup? Also my second question plays a part in the first. The 14B runs different size wheel studs then the front D60. Should I both making them all the same? Machine hubs/rotors/etc.

    I kept the stock one ton brakes up front and 1975 3/4 ton Chev rotors and calipers on the rear. Use the stock 14b studs to hold the rotor on and TMR caliper brackets. With hydroboost, off the donor truck I got the axles from, I can lock up the 39 Maddogs at 100 km/h with no effort.

    What did you end up running for actual brake components? Year and vehicle. I actually just traded the 14B housing for a complete 14B from one of the local yards.

    Were you able to run all the same studs front and rear? Did you use anything to balance your 39's?

    TMR rear brackets, Rockspyder front brackets/sleeves/races. Something like 73-88 chevy (truck/blazer/burban) 3/4 ton 4x4 front calipers/rotors/pads all around. Studwise you shoooouuuld be fine running the H1 steelies. Not sure how Chris pulled off running stock studs on the aluminum H2's. Must have sprinkled it with unicorn hair and rainbow dust.

    I got away with the stock studs cause I found the proper lug nuts.
    I put about 8oz of high density airsoft bbs in each tire. They come in .12g and .20g flavours. High density ones don't show any wear after a year in the tires and work great with a little drop of antifreeze to keep them from freezing into a clump.

    Due to the wonderful warm weather this evening I decided to work in the garage instead of working on the deck. A while back I had taken my H1 rims and stiffeners to the local machine shop to have the stiffeners welded on. After some sandblasting and a couple coats of paint I had them almost looking like new, for a second

    Here are a couple pictures from tonight. It took a couple of tries... but by the last one we had the process figured out!





    Fighting to get the PVC tubing in...



    Lubing up the O-ring.





    "TJ" trying to help out.

    Went for a little trail run this weekend, just 3 of us. Nothing fancy but the Grand blew a rear brake line.

















    ---------- Post added at 06:32 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:30 PM ----------

    Also this weekend stripped down the "new" 14B... Brakes, brackets and fluids.

    Cut the trac bar bracket off the frame this weekend and moved her inside... slowly getting closer to completion



    After trying to get some parts from TWF for my H1's... And them obviously having SOME communication issues on their end or just not interested in dealing with a $60 order I went looking for nuts and o-rings.

    For reference...

    Nuts are 1/2" NF 20. Less then $.50 each (Fastenal)

    O-rings B1000-457 2-457 Buna-N $1.00 each from Marco Rubber (Received 3 days after ordering)

    Prices are significantly less then TWF...

    After getting the frame in and kind of mocked up I noticed a possible problem... If I leave the 14B in the stock location and running 2.5" of lift am I going to have any issues with the cross member about the rear axle? Clearance?

    Just wanted to give a big shout out to Big Country Customs in BC for the $25 Gift Certificate I won from their Fall Giveaway when I submitted the ^ above 2011 picture of my beverage fridge wearing their BCC sticker.
