1badb2Who was the guy on the old site that built an idi with all kinds of power. I think it was a crewcab dually. Something like 400hp.
Not sure if it is allowed to post to links to over there, but here goesHow about those trailer axles you built from sterlings? Was that here, or pirate?
I don't know, dude. What's it matter? It's probably over there. It's not rocket surgery. You slide the axle tubes into some 4" squate tube and then hook up a hydraulic actuator to the stock brakes. Easy peasy.
Sterling 10.25 axles are .500 wall 3.5" tube. I slipped them into 4" .250 box. Added 4" of width and have some 315/75r16's to pair with them under my dump trailer for better float on soft ground and overall better off road performance.
I'm using a Hydrastar HBA-10 electric over hydraulic master cylinder to run the juice brakes.
So there's this place in town now that sells overstock and factory defect materials for a big processor that recently opened. They're cheap and the sales girl has a crush on me so I get a good discount. It was $90 for two 144" pieces of slightly rusted odd length tube. :rolleyes: I'd imagine it's a few hundred worth of material though.
Reminds me of white bird summit a little further south on 95, I think this one is longer. Also, unlike most big grades where you can get a good run at them, the white bird has a 90* at the bottom and the one in Lewiston has a whole fucking town at the bottomYotaAtieToo that Lewiston grade is a NIGHTMARE!!!! I’ve been up in many times in my company car but never the F550. You would think a small suv made in 2019 would have no problem with that hill. The 2019 Equinox I have has a little 1.5L turbo and even a bone stock suv built in 2019 struggles up that hill. It will hold the speed limit if you are revving the shit out of it and don’t even think about trying to pass....it’s a POS
White bird is another bitch of a climb.Reminds me of white bird summit a little further south on 95, I think this one is longer. Also, unlike most big grades where you can get a good run at them, the white bird has a 90* at the bottom and the one in Lewiston has a whole fucking town at the bottom
Would have been OKish if my brake controller wasn't acting up, but it's definitely a good haul.
