Ran into my first real issue, the used flat pit-man I bought, the TRE hole is too big. It not tapered anymore. I now need to buy another :thumbdown:. And work is eating up all my daylight! This ting needs to be done and tested by Tuesday morning.  :sheerterror:

And you used RUFs. How much distance is there between the tie-rod and the drag-link? If they where both level.

I'll check it out tomorrow and post up.

Didn't get a chance to measure today but your box location looks good. As long as they are parallel or further apart than parallel i would run it.

I finished. Yay! Pics of the final will be tomorrow as I flex it out and check for issues.

I need to practice my welding. Once I own a welder  :disturbed:

Now I just need to find the time and stuff to do my RUF packs. Then we'll see if I truly measured everything :)

Yes. I may add my leafs to a 2wd's rears. If 2wd rear leafs work. I think they have more arch.

They are hitting and they are the stock front bump stops. They flatten pretty good. My bump stop extensions are Marlins. They have not been cut down at all.

I'm off to Bald Mt on the 6th if you'd like to join. Other than that I will be looking for a place to wheel on the 20th.

I was going to camp but decided not to. Requirements? 33s with a locker, or two, or chains.

I have only been there once and the snow was crappy, as I'm told, so the trucks without lockers where having a bit of a time. From what I can tell this trip will have a ton more snow and it's suppose to be better snow. :dunno:

PS. 33...32..., that's the same  :biggthumpup:. I'll  pull you out all day long if you need it.

yes, it has the stock shackles. I may get longer ones depending on how much I hit the oil pan.
it looks like on articulation it will clear fine but strait up travel could be a problem untill I put bumpstops or get a bit more room up front.
I either plan to redrill my spring perches or running stock rear main leaves in the front.

If you mount your box before you do RUF, make sure you move it far enough forward to account for the RUF's pushing the axle forward. On my 85 with RUF i pushed the box to the front until it was aaaallmost touching the front radiator support. Post up pics of the progress.

Here is the box position. I moved it as far forward as i could without butting the rad support, i did give it a few good hits with a bfh though. the TRE almost hits the frame.

the box is so far ahead of my front axle that the drag link is not quite long enough so i cannot turn right completely. I think i will try to find some 2wd rear mains to swap in with some redrilled shackles to keep it low. or redrill my drivers perch so i can move it an inch.

Its all done and ive driven it around, i just don't have anygood pictures yet.

better daytime pics




 
BONK


ride height


I got the tie rod to hit the oil pan after a few assults up the curb at speed lol. I think i will just redrill my drivers side perch and move the axle forward before i go wheeling.  that way i will get a bit more clearance between the pan and the tie rod and my tires won't hit the firewall at all. AND my truck won't get any higher.
