I'm going Detroit for sure. I know it's a little more dough but I've done a lot of reading on it and I watched on in action last night and was very impressed. Plus I've got a friend that is willing to help with the install.

And I do want your rear leafs (if they are not wore out) and your tcase. If you aren't using any of the drive shafts let me know.

Werd, sounds like a good choice.

I'm definately keeping my front shaft, and maybe the rear to make spares. Still have the stock rear shaft from the '85. If you are doing dual cases you will want a double cardan rear shaft, like the stock front, so you don't have vibes. I had a shop clearance an '87 front d/c shaft for more angle and build it for the rear and it is smooth as silk. I had bad vibes with the stock driviline and TG springs because of the angle. You might be able to just swap the driveshafts around, because the front angle decreases so much with dual cases, and even more if you get a front HP. I have clearanced single joints on my front shaft and it works great. I didn't know any better when Carolina truggies installed my suspension and they kept my stock front double cardan driveshaft and had someone build me a new one from scratch

I got my spot cleaned up in the backyard but couldn't get any help to move the '87 this weekend. . Hopefully one evening this week.
Yep, we're thinking of the same place. I have a few friends who go up there on occasion.

And I hear you. Sometimes it can be a PITA trying to get things done by yourself. I'm still not sure where I can put my cab yet to work on the floor pans and cab mounts.

Yeah I remember you recommending that and it seems like the way to go. For my go to setup I think you're idea is best, just swapping the current ones around but I do think it would be a good idea to get a spare set.

I'm gonna get those doors started this week and get the alternator swapped the week after next. I think I need to order the TG battery box. I'll snag some pictures of the current battery "tray".

I wonder if the TG box would make it easy to mount this monster...


Its made specifically for those batteries so I would think so. I'm going to have mine welded into place. They are like $40 I think.

Group 31? Pelfreybilt makes a box but might need some mods to fit the t4r

Ah well then that won't work lol. I may go for one of the batteries that will fit just to keep things simpler for myself. Do you think it would be ok to wire the winch directly to the battery? The only other part hooked up to is is the CB.

Werd.

I'm just trying to keep things simple for the time being. I want to be able to wheel this summer, not chase problems/broken shit. My new job will allow me to finally have weekends this summer.
