The club is hosting a ride on Saturday, September 17th and non club members are welcome to attend.  It's in Lowville, NY on private property.  If you are interested or would like some more information on the trails, send me a PM.  There's a limited number of vehicles that the property can accomodate, so it's first come first serve.

Here's a link to last year's ride: http://twistedaxles.org/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=933

Harbor Feight now carries an adjustable compressed air oiler for $8 and an oil seperator for $8.  They both work great so far. I put the oiler on the inlet to my stock AC compressor and put the separator on the high pressure side just upstream of the unloader valve.

Please respond if you are interested in attending the King of Trucks.  http://www.rightcoastcars.com/king-of-trucks.php

I'm going on Friday, May 27.  I'd like to hit the obstacle course, then head over to the show truck area to set up the banner and see if we can do some recruiting.  Post if you are interested in going with a vehicle or as a spectator, and what day you are interested in attending.  Thanks

Mark

you can have a double CV shaft made by a number of companies (JE Reel, Tom Woods, High Angle Driveline, Driveshaftsuperstore) but they are expensive.  I paid $400 just to have a regular single CV shaft built for the rear of mine.  Probably be cheaper to look around for a centered axle.  If you get lucky and find what you need they are only about $75 at pick and pull.  Worst case, you should be able to find one on craigslist or ebay for less than $200.

put np205 in fsj. took measurements and got front driveshaft made, no problems. rear shaft is another problem. fsj has off set rear axle . wonder if i could take a newer style front cv style driveshaft ( with ball bearings) from a 4x4 trk of maybe like a grand cherokee or 1/2 ton pickup and have shaft made so that the cv shaft is at the axle and regular joint at t-case. have to do this because of the offset to pass side. or does someone have a dana 44 out of a newer wagoneer with 3.54 gears? any ideas

1)  Yes it is ugly, especially without a rear frame.
2)  Proof that a Ford can haul a Dodges ass.
3)  Frame all welded and plated in with the body mounts re-attached
4)  Fresh coat of rattle can primer at 30°=runs

I figured a flat surface would be easier to mount the winch, suspension points and anything else i can think of.  The frame rails are 5" c-channel and the rear is a combination of 3X6X1/4 tube and 1/4" plate.

This is why I need a new garage.  I was lifting the front axle up on the driver side with a Highlift jack to compress the suspension to see how screwed i was going to be with the front drive shaft by the front pto assembly.  As fortune has it the floor jack on the opposite side went through my crappy floor and the whole vehicle shifted sideways stuffing the hub through the wall. 

My poor ford all up on blocks with nowhere to go.  I guess it would be more redneck if it was a camaro in my front yard.  But for bonus points I was tool lazy to unhook the plow blade.
