If money were no object, i'd be a harcore wheeler AND a hardcore hot rodder. God knows i can figure out how to do it myself... but i can't afford half the tools i need. Right now, like i said, i don't want to dump any money into this truck. When i blew up my NP 203 like a month ago, i just let it sit because i knew my friend had another NP 203 for me lined up for $50, i just had to wait until i was back in school. Now i have it hooked up, and i have a noise i didn't have before. Damnit. I would have gone with a 205, but then i would have needed new driveshafts, and for that kind of money i'd rather put gears in my lincoln. Can you bolt a 205 to the gear reduction on the 203? that might give me a low range good for more than burnouts. damn, there's that whole money thing again.
Anyway, if you guys don't mind, can you scroll up to general 4x4 discussion and check out my NP203 chain thread? I'm having a problem with a noise, and i REALLY don't want to drop that heavy-ass transfer case again. Of course i think the noise is from the case, since it started when i replaced it. Kind of a clunking, when the front end is under load and moving, not when i just rev it on the brakes without moving. goes away when i unlock the front hubs and lock the t-case (i had the part time conversion in the old one, but not the new one, figure i don't need it until spring). Any help that can be provided would be much appreciated.
Desertrat, i saw those pics of your truck, that is awesome. If i only had the time and the tools.
Heres a pic of my good car:
I'd love it if my truck was cooler, but for the same dollars i'd really rather add an S-trim and some other choice mods to that lincoln (which would make a kick-ass sleeper, hence my screen name. apparently someone else took sleeper, which is my name on the other boards i'm on).
