What I have....
-High and low pinion e-lockers
-3" front allpro springs
-4" rear marlin springs
-2 12" bilstine shocks
-2 pair 5" shackles
-Wireing harnesses and  :bling: 12volt guy switch panal
-Malrin Knuckle rebuild kit
-ARP knuckle studs
-Sky widening kit
-Spring perches
-5.29 ring and pinion set for the stock High pinion E-locker.
-Spare Front housing to mod while picking up other parts
-5 35" MTR's mounted on black steel wheels

I have many more parts on order  :yesnod:

I have a question: I could get the stock Hi-pinion 3rd to rotate when I turned the flange. However I could not turn the flange on the Low pinion 3rd. I tried changing the switch, and that did nothing.

Cleaned and painted my rear springs saturday.

So I got my new tires sunday.


Then on the way home I was having a problem where I was buring oil. Some how oil was leaking o=in my engine bay. A few of the possible sources... Loose dip stick, and missing clamps on hoses on top of valve cover. I have made the dip stick stay beter and added some hose clamps. Sadly I am having problems starting and keeping it running now. Checked spark plugs, and distrubitor, No problems there.  :headscratch:


I did learn that a previous owner descided to put something other then cherry juice in teh power steering res. So at this point my truck is non op  :rivers:

Welcome home man. Must be good to be back.  :usa:

That sucks about your engine, maybe try a compression test and see where they are all at? At least you have a big pile of parts though, you can get a lot done while you figure out whats up with your engine.

So a littel update.....
Turns out I somehow blew my main seal. On top of that there is a serious blow by problem. :rivers:
So I descided to get a used engine dropped in. It should last me 3 or 4 years easy.

1 more thing, the man in brwon just dropped off my Crawl box. MRCo7-R10 with stock 2.28 gears.

Welcome back from Iraq!  :usa:

You're throwin' some coin at that bad boy, but if you've got it may as well spend it  :twocents:

Glad to see you decided against Trail-Queer and Downer springs. They both suck  :shake: I had some ranchos when I first started building my Runner, and they brought the suck, too. My RUFs are bringin' the flex now.

Keep us posted with pics. That's what Marlin's kids love  :yupyup:

Looks like  I have everything except my dual case cross member and IFS steering box. Ive already paid for both and am just waiting on shipping.

So once my truck gets out of the shop with the new used engine I will be ready to weld.

Looking good!

I hope they're not finished with the crossmember mockup, though. It's really really low  :suprised:

My guess is the pic was taken as they were lifting it up into place. You might be able to tell that its also backwards. They already figured that part out.

I decided to be a little different and not go with the typical Plate crossmember. I like this design alot.
