New Improved Wildweasel!

Here is a pic of the Wildweasel On new 33" muds,
with the new Missing link suspension (CJ rears)
and traction bar/ 4.62 gears. http://www.cs.umass.edu/~glenn/wea1.JPG
I also updated the webpage with a few shots of the trac-bar.

Re: New Improved Wildweasel!

Glenn,
The Weasel looks good.
I got that Prop valve yesterday, hopefully
I'll get a chance to install it by this weekend.
Thanks again.

Re: New Improved Wildweasel!

glenn:

looks sweeeet!!! how much lift do you need to fit 33's? as you know I have 4" under the axles and I really want 33's (proably will never get them though) - would a 2" body lift clear them?

thanks,

pug

Re: New Improved Wildweasel!

looks like good work. What kind of disk brakes do you have on the rear?

Re: New Improved Wildweasel!

The disk brakes are suzuki, welded on mounts. Very easy to do, the only hard thing is the wheel adapter you need to have turned at a machine shop. (Unless you have a lathe and like screecing cast iron...) There are write ups on off-road.com and the BC canada site where I first saw it.
As to Pugs question, I know Yankee Tim has 33's with
the calmin 5" (With 3" body)but the wheels stuff into the wheel wells way too easy. I think I am pushing 9" of lift at this point. All suspension lift BTW.If you never really twist the rig up offroad then you may be able to, But I am all about function I still need to add bumpstops back on,
With them and the traction bar my springs will hopefully last.

Re: New Improved Wildweasel!

I will be doing that soon. (Inspection) I need to get my e-brake back together first. I think I have a fix for the broken drum. (This is if they don't just laugh me out of the
place becuase of the lift.)

Re: New Improved Wildweasel!

cool Glenn, looks like you got alot done. Did you try out that traction bar yet? I see you got those Rollin' Rockers installed also. I just got mt wheels and tires, gonna get them mounted tomorrow. Got my on-board air working, works good. At idle I can inflate my spare (33x15.5) from 0psi to 25psi in 1.5 minutes, and thats without an air tank.
