Thanks and nope, a lot of people have asked me this but I have never had that happen. In fact even on the trail the second shackle (the one tucked against the frame) rarely drops down. I have to get really flexed out for it to go into action. I was worried about inverting shackles at first but it has been over a year now and I havnt not had that happen. If you set the shackle angle right and place your chevy spring hanger in the right place it should prevent any unnecessary unloading except on the trail when you need it most. It really doenst act any different than a single shackle IMO (except when flexing like a madman).

thanks. I have those same stock Chevy shackles sitting in my garage. What did you use for those bumpstops on the frame?

I used a set of IFS bumstops from the front suspension of a stock toyota ifs truck. later though i swapped them with extended bumpstops in conjunction with an add a leaf for a little extra rear lift. you can probably find some ifs bumpstops at a local 4x4 shop usualy they keep them after sas swaps my friend has a big bin of them at his shop thats where i found mine.

Ok thanks for the info. I have a whole IFS front end my buddy cut off of his truck and dumped it at my house. I can rob them off of there.

46, you were right, I got my highsteer done a few days ago. It is sick, I do need a steering stablizer though. But man way better than push pull. When you hit a bump the wheel doesn't jerk outta your hand. Just thought I would let ya know!

Right on man. High steer is still one of my favorite modifications I have done. The steering stabilizer did help stiffen the wheel up a little bit and eliminate extra slop. I thought it was worth the 80 bucks.

Well snow has been pretty chump around here lately, not much worth writing about, last weekend I went on a little scenic run by some of the old mining diggins scattered through out the area. We knew there wasnt going to be much snow but the weather was nice and we just felt like checking out the scenery and screwing around.

It was mostly a stocker run, my buddy had the most equipped truck (green yota: 37s, exo, dual ultimates, F&R lockers, onboard air ect) and that made me the second most equipped truck, the rest of the group consisted of: 1 stock 85, one stock 87, one stock 92, and a gmc yukon with F&R posi and bald ass tires (amazing he never got stuck).

The stockers got stuck a number of times, i had to give em a push here and there. my buddy wade in the green truck got stuck once but it only took a minute or two of shovel work to get him out. anyway here are the pictures enjoy

Meeting up at the start of the trail:





For anyone who has never seen the scars of hydraulic mining, here are some pictures. I was standing on the edge of about a 300 foot cliff. the "valley" below is not actually a valley but where the hydraulic mining tore away the earth, cutting down over 300 feet into the ground. All those trees below were planted after the mining was over in the 1800s. they are about 100-150 foot tall trees. all the ground they grow on used to sit at level with where I was standing. The road we took was a very old mining road used for hundreds of years by horse buggies and carriages to ferry supplies from Nevada City to the mining camps. The evidence of mining is everywhere in northern california. It is not uncommon to find furnaces, old buggies ect scattered across the landscape. most are so old they are consider archeology artifacts are you can be fined severely for tampering with them. Its always a trip to find some 200 year old piece of mining equipment half burried in the forest.

Nasty mud hole. It was completely frozen over before Wade drove over it. at the end there is a ledge about 2 feet tall of solid ice.



Some deep drifts we found. Underneath was over a foot of solid ice from the last storm a few days earlier. there were tons of rock solid ice ruts from people 3 or 4 days before burried in about 2 feet of snow. Wade eventually got stuck after he tore through the powder and landed on the ice. didnt take much to get him out. 3 minutes later he was on his way.







Headed home...







Problem with red is that it doesnt show dirt and mud well!!

We have loaders equipped with BIG ASS snow blowers on the fronts and they have to blow the snow into dump trucks and haul it off to a field, cause its piling up so much.

we have had a few warm days here which dwindled down our snow amount.. we have over 35in on the ground as of now... but over 5feet of total snowfall in our valley (2100ft) and it keeps snowing.

most of our trails are unaccessable without a snowmobile.
so i would like to go somewhere in the middle of where you and i are..

few feet of powder? that'd be nice.

right on though.. great pictures.

Damn thats a lot of snow for that elevation. is that typical? it rarely drops below 3000 feet in california though it does happen just not very often.

no those are from like two weeks ago I think, the last storm before the BIG storms. Yeah we got hit pretty hard. at my house which is around 3600 ft or so we only got about 1.5-2 ft of snow but in truckee and tahoe they were getting up to 10 feet of snow on the mountains. the winds were what sucked, they tore the area apart just before the snow came so a ton of people were out of power and the snow prevented PG&E from getting a lot done because they were so busy. our phones went out and the cell tower came down too but everything is good now. i still have friends without power though.

Sounds like it would be a lot of fun. Do you have any pictures of your town or how much snow you have?? Another storm rolled in tonight but i think its just rain again. :( A bunch of guys I know are going on a snow run tomorrow up by Truckee but they are all running 42"+ tires and here I am with 35s and no rear locker...I just told em I wish I could go but i dont want to hold the group up, I know there is nasty snow. Not doubting my 4runners ability in the snow, it does great up to about 3.5 feet of snow and with 6 psi in the tires...but they are talking about4+ feet of snow and in that I would just get stuck and it would be lame. I need a locker damnit.

I have decided I am going to get an Aussie on the next payday though work will slow down because im now in school 4 days a week. So if I cant find the time to swap third members to install the aussie in my rear axle I will see how much my friend's shop will do it for. hopefully there is a vacation in the next month or so, so that i can just do it myself.

Oh yeah and I got the new wheels mounted on my girlfriend's truck today. this was her xmas gift and she was stoked. At least I wont feel so bad driving it with the roxy and heart stickers in the windows  :outtahere:

Funny thing is, if you look back at the picture of my truck with the 32 bfgs, these are those rims. I bought these like 3 and a half years ago, ran em for about a year and a half then sold them to my friend Adam, and he ran em for the last two years. About a week before Xmas he tells me he is selling my old tires and rims because he got some 35 mtrs already on rims. Offered him a bill for the rims and now they are back in my possession again after almost 4 years. My gf had been wanting rock crawlers for her truck for a long time but i couldnt find any good deals locally but this sprang up right before xmas so I jumped on it. They are 15x10s with i believe 2" back spacing if i remember correctly. Definitely widened the stance of her 93 though for the better. it was just too narrow before.

So if I cant find the time to swap third members to install the aussie in my rear axle I will see how much my friend's shop will do it for. hopefully there is a vacation in the next month or so, so that i can just do it myself.

Oh yeah and I got the new wheels mounted on my girlfriend's truck today. this was her xmas gift and she was stoked. At least I wont feel so bad driving it with the roxy and heart stickers in the windows  :outtahere:

Funny thing is, if you look back at the picture of my truck with the 32 bfgs, these are those rims. I bought these like 3 and a half years ago, ran em for about a year and a half then sold them to my friend Adam, and he ran em for the last two years. About a week before Xmas he tells me he is selling my old tires and rims because he got some 35 mtrs already on rims. Offered him a bill for the rims and now they are back in my possession again after almost 4 years. My gf had been wanting rock crawlers for her truck for a long time but i couldnt find any good deals locally but this sprang up right before xmas so I jumped on it. They are 15x10s with i believe 2" back spacing if i remember correctly. Definitely widened the stance of her 93 though for the better. it was just too narrow before.




NICE!
I definately think those 3rd gens look silly stock...
the body is too wide for the axles/ifs
i like the look of the wheels sticking out like that.
and low stance.

nice looking, and way to keep the girlfriend happy
and sticking around
now make hers into your tow rig :haha:

Justin (just2much19) and I went out to the CAL 4WD Winter Funfest at Greenhorn today. We got there at about 10 am and stayed almost all day. Got some good wheeling in and got to check out all the bad ass rigs that came from all over nor cal. it was a good day, didnt see any good roll overs though.  :(


Probably 600-800 people showed up



My friend brandon's linked third gen with coilovers



Twisted Metal Fab buggy...that thing is awesome!



A cool Zuk buggy



My buddy's first gen
