SFAS Question regarding 2000 Jimmy 4x4
Ok, this is what i want to do.
15x7 AR-767 Rims (5" backspacing), should i go with 4" to set it out a little more? or would that be too much?
i dont want to go bigger than 33" tires. I want to put a D30 up there. what the hell is a D30? as opposed to a D44? ok the D44 is stronger, the D30 can handle 33"s...fine, but what is the difference? is it just where the drive shaft goes into the pumpkin? the size of the spline or something? how do we make our S-10 transfer case give power to the front Diff? what drive shaft? a YJ one, or the existing one? is it just a matter of bolting up the new U-Joints to the stuff, do we have to chop or lengthen the drive shaft?
i just found an 87 YJ front axle assembly here in town for $400 CDN. but that doesnt come with any of the steering components...i wonder how much all of that stuff will run me...prolly another $400 or so eh?
where do the leafs bolt up to? i saw someone that had a Gen1 Jimmy, made their own brackets to hold the leafs...was it you Grizz Axxemann? anyways...just how much of the old suspension has to be torched off? cant it just be unbolted or left there? and how much welding is necessary? i dont have a problem with welding, or torching...i do it a lot at work on the equipment we manufacture actually.....but anyways, yeah so there are all of y questions wrapped up into one post after days of reading through these informative posts on here. you guys are all awesome with how you help each other out...i think i will be staying on this board for a long time...like it or not!
