  1. Bringing it home for a friend i szw ut show up on hi44 in star yesterday Needs alittle tls has the 47re converter us holding even tho fluids brown Im guessing 410 rear. 2200 is about as high as i like to run these Its an old state truck these beds run about 7000 new Gona flush trans with tractor trans fluid then drop pan put old style filter on and top off with dex 3/4 maybe ford f fluid and run it
  2. On the 4th heater core. Local shop in mtn home is doing the work. Everything checks out. Im guessing cracked head or head gasket but only under certain conditions does it build pressure. Truck has a egr delete and 346k on it. Were at a loss cores are lasting 3-6 months. I think im going to bypass the core put a valve in it crack it ooen in winter maybe crack it in summer to keep something else from blowing. Im just thinking out load as coolant drips on my feet
  3. Road 12.5 up hammett hil feathering off at wind sock at the bottom topped out at 60mph
  4. Its like a hole new rig https://flic.kr/p/Y7recH It is dana 80 dualy rear its very hard to tell that its wider https://flic.kr/p/WSVtXt
  5. Woah i wasnt long. This is for fencing on my property. Will be a on going project. Truck was running 900 deg at 75mph. Will most likely be throttleing out of hammet hill. A turbo upgrade is planned for the future some time.
  6. Scotts still messing with the truck. He decided to do a upgraded govenor. Found the broken accumulator spring when doing.
  7. I was going to leave it off. Then a few days agon coming from boise to mtn home i was bring thrown all over in wind. Ive got a 500lb welder in bed to. Its mit bad but i also have a 1500lb welder. The new rubber seems to be following grooves similar to how m55s do. With bar on truck is driving much better on the freeway. I have to go to jerome for a load of pioe next friday and wad starting to dread the trip with goose kneck. Glad i found time to get it back on.
  8. Sway bar back on. Okay okay after some freeway miles i would not recommend running without. Raised mounts in anticipation of steering also coming up
  9. At the tire store. Got tired of rough riding 35x12.5s Going with 285x75x17s 34x11 tire. Ill get a pick ounce mounted. I like the stance much better than the 12.5wide tire. For some reason body line doesnt quite line up Carefull moparman unexspected storms flat getting after it. Less than half inch was forcasted. Boise is up to 4-5" now. Mtn homes sitting between 1-2" we just got called to start pushing. Everyone tried to wait it out but mother natures having other ideas
  10. Cleaned up the knuckle and unit bearing with (death wheel) wire wheel. Now they fit together nicely. I threw the damn mud sheild as far as i could throw it same as i did the other side now they match. Ive found mud/dust sheilds do nothing but hold mud sticks and dirt agaisnt the rotor. Now its to damn cold to do anymore. Greased the uppers any holy hell they took alot of grease. Next up after this is steering or control arms. Control arms and track bar will be all adjustable. Still debating hiems or rubber or combinatiin of both Im getting used to driving the jeep and have a welder on back of the dodge wich is handy to not be tied to a 220 10ft extension cord. Also debating a hypotherm 30 air plazma to maintain portability but having 45xp in the shop has spoiled me. Also have 150ft of welding leads enroute. Its always been a dream of mine to bite into the portable welding word. Thinking about renewing a few certs though i never did find much need for certs. Holy cow im getting side tracked. My beaitiful Crystal watching me build a metal gate
  11. Fuel pressure gauge

    Im staying on the 44 with fuel run into the cab at my gauge
  12. Whered mopar man when you want to turn ball joints into a 30 minute job. Steered this hub off, cussed yelled and bled I wouldnt recomend ball joints as quick easy money saving job I rented a press and ended up fabbing sleeves myself nothing in balljoint kit would work. Im going to clean this hub up and antisieze the shit out of it The drivers side let go a few years ago. Its still good and i dont have money to replace it right now The hard parts done. Ended quitting here.
  13. When your foots on floor

    As youve gotten greedy and grabbed one to many gears for the 365 cummins to pull. Shes rolling black tacks holding 1500,cars are piling shes holding her own but gaining little your hoping for a few r'sss just a few more and shel pull out collecting building boost just as your hand goes to the stick she comes to life shes pulling shes gaining 1600 1700 1800 shes at 2000 just a slight haze now turbo screaming you hold her at 2200 and pull the rest of grade telling yourself one gear lower or hit it faster next time.
  14. Flushed all 16qts plus some. Tranny is working veey good. Was stumped for awhile. It took lots if throttle to movefrom a stop. Specially uo a incline. I went to check tv cable adjustment and found the cable was broken I zipp tied it and drives very good now. I still need to adjust rear band and drop some red fluid back in for color then i do believe shes rd worthy
  15. Mopar. Not so. Dex 3/4 ford f hydraulic fluid are all good to go The 727 is not picky. Nothing wrong with running slippery at 4 but theres nothing wrong with not running it. That debate is hashed out over years and years ever since at4 came out. I probly got 60k on my 47re running hydraulic/transmission fluid. I swit hed because it was slipping very bad on atf4 You dont have to believe.
  16. Mopar man im curious now. Ive never seen a green cruise light thati know of this trucks an 01 mines an 02. Im not sure ive ever drove a 2500 maube they have green and 3500s are yellow
  17. Ive never noticed different cruise lights. I think it's same color as my 02 though i am partially color blind He went and bought plus4 i told him i think it a waste to put in this tranny heck my tranny has never had plus 4 in it. I was thinking if alittle tlc doesnt revive that i just might tear i to a build myself. These trucks are often found for cheap with neglected 47res in them I think id go one step lower stall then i did on my tranny if i did it again. Chris did some machining on mine to fit more clutches. If i could just put a rebuild kit together and have it work id be happy
  18. He has landscape buisness so hes going to put it to work
  19. My xj

    More of the axle. Sometimes its scarey the first time but its not that bad ounce you just do it Welded tubes. Shaved and plated the bottom to help it slide over trees and rocks These are ruff stuff covers. Ill be putting one on dodge one of these years. Would be cool to have a steering stabalizer anchored to cover, even though stabalizers arent needed. Flanges are 1/2" and rest is 3/8" Mini dodge front end. Can you tell im bored lately
  20. My xj

    Good. Same as spool. My current dana 35 is welded the same. I drive it around town alittle but mostly on dirt. Itl definitely wear the tires out if on the pavent alot. Front axle pops alittle because ive got a broken ujoint cap and because itl load the right tire then transfer to left tire. Ive been holding off on fixing it because i also have a front axle im putting in it that runs bigger u joints. But i may have to just fix it since im taking so long on rear axle. Im in the middle of plumbing disc brakes on it Crap. I need to do motor mounts to
  21. My xj

    Thats a sweet willys. Heres the rear axle im building for it. Wrap around bumper. Cut off lower fenders My sone running the tube bender. Well be doing links on dodge and jeep soon. My mind get carried away at times. Though ive started simplify track bar ideas in my head. Well get to work on dodge axle mount for track bar. The factory track bar is od sized mount. Like 1 3/4 wide on axle end. Im assuming the jeep shares the same size bushing. Well be bumping it to a standerd 2" wide bushing. The tie rod end on track bar will be scrapped to 2x8x3/16 sliders grafted into the unibody Will some day tie tube fenders into sliders and numpers Next is long arms and steering

    You gota be a local, lol

    He built my tranny. Awesome tranny guy.
  24. Everyounce in a blue moon ill make a trip to grants pass oregon leaving here after work at 5. That would make good lighting worth it
