Tracker Math

This...


...plus these...


...and some lovin' from this...


...equals...


Still need to trim the fenders. The sawzall only came with one blade and I didn't think to buy more. I have to trim the back side of the front fenderwells and the front side of the rear fender wells.

The new tires are 36x13.50x15 Super Swamper IROKs on 15x8 wheels with 2.5" backspacing. The old tires are 32.9.50x15 bias ply TSLs on 15x7 Allied beadlocks with 2" backspacing. Believe it or not, the new tires and wheels are lighter than the smaller package.

A couple of random shots.




Time to eat then head out to buy more blades. [img]images/graemlins/givemebeer.gif[/img]

Re: Tracker Math

Nice - I have MTR 35x12.5's on mine.
Your next step - low t-case gears - they made a huge differenc turning the meats.
Then lockers, Power steering, then ---- never ends.

Unfortunately it isn't very "street friendly" anymore, but who cares!

Re: Tracker Math

Rich, I have power steering.

I'm not going to drop the cash on T-case gears, though...would rather wait and do a 4.3/700r4/Dana 300 swap.

Then solid axles. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Tracker Math

No, the IROK's. Haven't heard anything on them yet as to how well or bad they work.

Re: Tracker Math

Once you actually wheel it you'll find the low range gearing is way too high now.
The dana 300 is only slightly lower than the Tracker t-case. Tracker t-case is 2.268 vs. D-300 is 2.60. Not much ratio change there.
That will give you a crawl ratio around 40. The higher power of the 4.3 will help, but 4.3's aren't noted for low end torque.

The auto will help some because of the torque converter - especially if you opt for a high stall speed converter - like 2000 or so to keep the R's in the power band.
The 700r4 converter you can add a switch in the lock-up converter for downhilling - nice!

But you'll still want to install the Terra-low 4.0 in the D-300 to make it all work together.

It'll be heavy, mostly front heavy, and by the time you add lockers to keep the power on the ground it'll be lots of $$$ all told. You'll love it once it's finished.

Mine is still the stock motor with a crawl ratio of 80 - I'd rather have it around 120. Most of the time it doesn't need to be that low, but it would sure help sometimes.

He He - I get laughed at all the time by the 3 Jeep clubs I run with "Rice Burner" etc. I love it!!! At every run, and that's nearly every weekend, someone teases me. The others that know me keep quiet - they've been there before.
Than when it gets a little tough I go right on through when they have trouble.
It easily outperforms by new highly modified Rubicon Jeep.

Keep us informed of how the project goes.
