Wow. You really are getting the snow.


Nothing to speak of here. Ground is still bare and dry.

Crazy what 50 miles does. Freeway must be closed. Freeway traffic appears to be being routed through town. Appears to be another squal coming

My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

Ford poser shot with its semi unfinished bumper. Bumper Center is 1/4" and boxed to stiffin around winch bolt pattern. Need to bolt winch on then figure out what I want for revovery points(cheap ones)

This project has sucked up more money than I had planned to get to this drivable stage.

Probly going to try foa shocks 12 or 14" and maybe 1-3" coils to lift front alittle then fab shackle reversal to lift rear 1" ish to level with front maybe 1" higher.

It has a broken ujoint in the front or some kinda limited slip thing. I might put a spool in it if theyre available for the 44 or weld the spiders to case.

Cant forget castor bushing is shot. I haven't measured but it looks and drives like it doesnt have any positive castor.

I think ive decided not to do 3 link for now. . The front shocks I might do threaded bodies for that rainy day that I might happen to have parts for a suspension build. Luckily its nearly identical weight compared to my xj . Kinda have dual rate spring rates figured out in my head.

Before that refresh all ujoints axles and drivelines and drive it ohhh and steering ughhh money.

This 300 with ported head and chevy stuff is a tourqe Monster. The carb is a 600cfm holley street avenger that I putt the truck avenger stuff in . Did a steep climb in 4low with no issues.
But ohhh man the xj rides offroad 200% better. This things for sure a old 76 ford truck.

Re: My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

You're planning on a spool or welding the front? Lot of folks would scoff at even the notion... idk, I have a grizzly up front and selectable hubs. I don't see much difference Than if it was a full time locker with selectable hubs. When I lock in the hubs and put it in 4x4 it's nearly always locked. If I'm easy on the throttle around a bend (rarel lol) I MIGHT hear it ratchet.
Is this truck build just a soft spot I'm your heart? Man I'd have a had time not swapping front axles with the jeep. Granted the work to get both in is silly, and getting 1tons for the xj waaaay more smarterer

Yes I couldn't spool or weld a jeep axle. My grizzly is same. Only ounce in a blue miin feel it unlock.

We had two of these fords when I was a kid. Might turn rhis ford into my welding offroad recovery rig if it can handle the 1500lb welding machine

It did almost lose its axles to the xj. I think rcvs in a 44 will make a killer combo

My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

The fuel pump took a crap on my cummins. I havent had time to fix it so im driving the ford more renewed intrest.

Trying to figure what route to take with steering suspension
Looks like 35s will work well with minimal lift.2"

My 3" coils off the xj might even work


Im pretending to be a welder for a few days this trucks making the computer from mtn home to Meridian

Even getting 12mpg
