History: Bought it in the summer of 2007 with 278,000 kms and put on 18000 that summer and found out the odometer was faulty. It came with 4.0l H0, ax-15, two tops, 33" bfg's, warn 8000# winch, bumpers and a lot of new noises. Had the diff rally start clunking 600km from home and limped it back. Rebuilt the dana 30 :oops: and geared it to 4.56 from 3.73.Sprayed the tub inside with gator guard box liner. Got really tired of the 4.0l and yanked it in the fall and built a chev 350: bored over to 355ci, dual plane intake, yada yada yada, it is a blast but needs to be dyno'd for bragging. Adapted the ax-15 to the 350 for simplicity. Took the pinion out along with some exhaust playing one day and got warranty from the gear center :lol:
Now that the dana 30/35 combo is pulled and sold I've got a m.o.r.e shackle reversal kit half installed and has so far brought the front spring is forward 3 1/2"s. Planning on installing a EB ford 9" in the rear and a waggy 44 in the front until I get enough to build a 609 (ford 9" with dana 60 knuckles to make it a steer axle) for the front. Still looking for some stockish springs to bring it back down a bit after the SOA. Gonna full cage it and possibly strech the rear out a bit. Should have some picks of the shacle reversal installed soon. Then on to the twinsticked/flipped dana 300. If my wife ask's it cost $20. OK.

I will probably not be able to make the meeting this month as I'm on afternoons shifts right now. Over all its working great, its mostly engine issues that have slowed the build speed. Carb sputters under load right off idle, doesnt have much response to the 4barrels, smells like fuel when running, and both crank seals leak.

Got the old AX-15 pulled and replaced it with a mint T-18. Shifter is less than desirable as low is half and inch from the dash and in reverse my hand is in the cup holder, but my front driveshaft is 35"s and the rear is 34.5" long! The next project is a fancy skid plate and anti wrap bar on the rear axle. Then to install my front locker.....
