Thinking of out boarding the shocks.

Bought a pair of them Ford shock towers. Got them on the front thinking of cutting this set down to outboard the shocks.

Likely mount to the top of the axle. These are 9" travel bilsteins.

Got my front axle in and mocked up. Driveshaft will fit perfect don't have to get it re-made staying 1310.

Looks like I'm staying tie rod under the leafs has about 1/4 of clearance to dif cover if I run an 8 3/4 ram plenty if I run a 8" ram.

Still waiting on my 35 spline ARB I ordered back at the begining of Oct. Probably sitting on one of them ships in LA. FUCK Joe Biden.

Looking like it will all work out.

Wheeling the Piss out of 35s and haven't broken or worn a single one out yet. 2 years of wheeling.

I'd rather break a 1310 u joint than an axle shaft u joint or any axle components. They take about 30 min to replace.

Yeah, but now you're on 40s right? By that logic why didn't you stay with d44s?

I ran 1310s with 39s for a few years and would pop a driveshaft damn near every time I went out. I run 1350s with 42s now and have only worn out one driveshaft, no breaks knock on wood.

I understand the logic of building a fuse into the system, but I don't agree with it. Build it all strong and you'll be good.

Got my rear shocks out boarded, just used the Dorman Ford shock towers. I used these in the front too with the IHPA SOA kit. (Ford brand) I've got 3.75" up travel and 5.25 down travel with these shocks.

37s mounted for now 10.5" clearance on the diff with the TMR 15 bolt shave.

Measured for retuning my driveshaft yet again. 43.75".

Place near where I work Transaxle retubes for about $200. Well that was before steel price increase.

Thought about going to 1350 CV but the yoke is $150 cdn figure if I'm going 1350 I might as well just do the 32 spline output with 1350 flange yoke from JB conversions, but likely not doing this til I break shit or put an LS/ Tr4050 in it.

I know yall want me to go 1350 up front but I litterally only have enough driveshaft clearance for 1310 diameter. It's an Adams driveshaft 1310 CV shaft. Long spline for reverse shackle.

I blew apart my first 1350 cv this weekend, lol.

With your style of driving the 1310 may work well, time will tell. Still following along!

Haha yea I'm lucky to get over 2k rpm on the trail. Don't need it with all the downlow torques of an IH V8.

Got my soon to be 14 yo kiddo involved welding for the first time, and running the flap disc. She actually enjoyed it. I'm trying to push her into the trades as a career choice.

Getting my rear shaft retubed, hope to pick that up soon.

Told me the centering ball yoke on the 1310 CV was worn out, only has sun 15k km on it, said the joint was likely spinning in the tcase yoke which lead to it failing early. Was a Spicer joint too.

Filed down the yoke face a bit to hopefully tighten it up a bit.

Ordered a set of 5 nitto trail graps in the 40x13.5R17 variety $3100 cdn... Only other options were Brocomps or Maxxis (3-5 week wait) Toyos are on unended backorder unfortunately.

I wanted a made in North America set of tires!

Well my ARB 166 order was cancelled by supplier as ARB told them no special orders (back order) and no ETA on supply for the future...

Luckily found a guy local with an RD36 new in the box, but then couldn't find thick cut standard rotation 5.38s...

Then research shows a nitro gear (Mr gasket) Dana 60 ring gear spacer to use 4 series gears on a 3 series carrier. Since it's the front I'm not too worried about a huge failure point due to the spacer.

FUCK China virus and worldwide fucking bullshit.
