Past History:1978 Toyota 4x4 pickup - Sure wish I still had this one.1978 Jeep CJ7 - Small V8 that had a mild cam and big 4barrel got 10 miles to the gallon on a good day. Had fun, but I do not miss it.1993 Chevrolet 1/2 ton 4x4. Nothing special, my son still has it.1997 Chevrolet 1/2 ton 4x4. Again, standard stuff.2004 Chevrolet Colorado Z71. Great ride and gas millage, but not that great off road.Todays stuff:2010 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off Road. Stock as hell, but give me a break I only had it two months.Tried and true Ramsey REP8000 on a receiver mount.New in the box waiting, Warn 9000 with synthetic ropeI forgot to mention it had already been to the bend once.
How about mine?.1993 F-350 diesel:- (2000) 7.3 Navistar rebuilt diesel engine- Banks power elbow exhaust,manifold and 4" inch outlet muffler with Turbo condenser- Centerforce dual friction cluth (brass and ceramics)- ZF-5 manual tranny- 6.5" Superlift lift system- Procomp 6" steering pump drop arm- Dana 60 front axle with U-bolt tightening screws, not leaf retainers- Warn manual reinforced differential actuators. I am done with those automatic hub lockers that always betrayed me.- Excentric sprockets and heavily reinforced welded front end bar- Aluminum 3.78: 1 Honeywell explosion proof transfer case. This baby crawls over rocks..in third gear, with out coughing.- Heavily reinforced back yokes in all transfer points also with excentric ubolts.- Sterling (ford) 10.25 back differential mounted on 35" B.F. Goodrich Mud Terrain tires- Warn 16,500 lbs winch with 30,000 lbs. snatch block. Doubling the winch capacity on a 3/16" Leschen braided wire rope- Handmade back tube bumper,still working on the front one. Now steering the ammo batteries towards getting a Jeep XJ with those amaizng Dana 44's differentials and that awsome 4.00: 1 transfer case and modify it to a 2.8 lts. CRD diesel engine with manual tranny..still in my dreams.Quote from: 04LJ on January 28, 2010, 12:24:12 AM Ahhhh, No hiking,biking,or Cell phone coverage stories Well I hope we can pass along some useful info.Ahh a bliss.......
