been busy lately.

well, these last 2 weeks have been real crazy. i have done coutnless repairs to both of my fords trying to keep them going, and the zuk has gotten way more mods to it. lots of 18-20 hour days, and very little sleep. i have been checkign the board, but not posting due to my being so exhausted, but it will all be good next week as i can relax some. been workin gon getting 99jeeperxj's rig done fo rthe SWB jeep ORC bash that is this friday through sunday. i am also attending that with my zuk, and so that means i wont be on for quite a few days, as the convoy is meeting at my house thursday night.
I just wanted to let you guys know what was going on, and ill see you guys monday or so.

oh, some ideas for you guys to ponder for the fullsizes.


built like how steve would make stuff, 1/4"


sprry, they where zuk mods, but can easily be transfered to the broncos.

writeup on my SF site on how to bust tires by hand also, also numerous other tech items.

Re: been busy lately.

how exact did you get those knuckles? i guess on the trail zuk it doesnt really matter... also is the pinion angle right on that rear axle? it looks like the pinion is higher than it needs to be for a double-cardan shaft, but again, on the trail zuk it wont matter much. good work, have fun!

Re: been busy lately.

the front axle is exact, it got measured with a caliper from mark to mark. The rear axle was correct for the old standard U joint shaft, but it is about aa degree and a half high for the bronco CV i transpalnted a few weeks ago. the thing is it doesnt hurt it, but helps it since it doesnt bind when it droops all the way down since the extra tad of pinion angle keeps it off the flanges. my rear drilineline is temp anyway. im looking for 2 new rear axles for it anyways, a jeep offset 44 thjat ill cut down and toss nder it for about 6 months use, then i toss under my project axle that i have a lead on. give you guys one clue, its the axle you all want to transplant into the front of your bronco.

Re: been busy lately.

What's the deal with the single radius arm with the leafs? I'm not questioning smart as$ like I'd just like to know what you did there and why for my gen knowledge.

Re: been busy lately.

I'm guessing that there single radius arm looking thing is a traction bar. Keeps the Pinion from climbing, drive line u joints from tweaking and the tires from hopping. I need to make one, can't drop the clutch without hopping. Looks good! Have you noticed a difference?

Re: been busy lately.

traction bar that doesnt limit flex. works awsome, no more axle wrap, and it had it real bad before, now it has none, and it will still outflex my bronco

Re: been busy lately.

If I had a Zuk it would look like Zach's. [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] I like it buddy! Especially the hydrosteer! How in the word do you fit duel Tcases in that thing? Why do guys say that you can't do it in a Bronco with an auto trans? I figure that the Jeep and Zuk guys have alot less space than we do yet they do it. Is there a special rear Driveshaft you use? Enquiring Norm's want to know! [img]images/graemlins/burnout.gif[/img]
