its done

well I have gone and done it now. I had to buy a trail rig I was so worried about breaking the daily driver last time out that it ruined my day and I couldnt pass up on this deal. Its a 84 cj7 with a 90 chevy caprice tbi 305 backed by a 350 trans with a dana 20 transfer case. I will be putting in dana 44 front and rear. it all ready has 5 in suspension lift (springs 4" / shackle 2") and a 3 in body lift. I will leave it spring under axle and probably take out a inch of the body lift it already has a snorkel on it to. all of this for $800. so what do you all think

Re: its done

Another one bites the dust! Whatever fits your needs. Great price and looks to be in good shape. I'm happy with where my bronc takes me. I may do some exo-caging to get it into more stuff without tearing it up. I've too have had thoughts of a jeep, zuk, or Bronco II that I could tow behind the Bronc. Maybe even mount my pop-up camper on a flatbed that would also carry the little trail rig. Not sure if the bronc could tow all that though. Good luck with the jeep!

Re: its done

That's cool 80B, what's it got for axles now, AMC rear, Dana 30 front? Any traction aids in the axles now? Looks pretty capable. How's the rear driveshaft angle, got to be real bad with the combo of lift and v8/auto. What's it got a 6" rear driveshaft?

When you swap to 44's (axles) why aren't you thinking spring over?

Nothing better Scoring any good 4x4 at that price and shape. Even if ya didn't like it ya can resale it and make money..lol. Find a jeep wagoneer now to rob the Axle's from, They come with the D44 upfront that'll swap right in. and a D44 rear if wanted.

Re: its done

He juice the axles that are in it are stock dana 30 front amc 30 rear (still 2 peice). I plan on putting a lock rite in the dana 44 rear. as I hear they hold up to the jeeps weight pretty good. actually the rear drive shaft is at a really good angle and is about 2ft long. I will get a true measurement some day.. the rear axle is real stiff nut it has this coil over type shock set up on it and I think it is adjustable so I will losse the heck out of it and see what happens.
