The Old Clowns SFA thread

1,031 posts in this topic

I was very lucky to have Bill (gogogadgetbiker) looking out for me, He told me that Courtney (Redneck Yankee) was looking for one buyer to take both his axles and all of his wheels off his hands..

Link to Rednecks Thread

I became that buyer!!!

I now am the pumped up owner of both his axles and all five rims and tires.

The front is a HP D44 with 4.88’s and a locker, The rear is a GM 10 bolt, with 4.88s and a locker. Tires are 36x13.50 Irok’s..

Also got lucky and was able to get Bills T-case out of his truggy..

 

I plan on using the same set up that Courtney used, same leaf springs on up..

 

I still need to buy a bunch of parts, Leaf springs, Shocks and a crap load more… I have a list but it has been changing a bit, So After I fine tune it I will post it up.

 

I would be very uncomfortable if I was the one doing this by myself, but having Bill and his shop doing a lot of the fab work on the frame and X-members, I am not worried at all.

Not really knowing what I am doing and not knowing all the little tricks I think it was a wise move for me just to let Bill help me out!

 

I am looking a having the major work done late this year or next spring. Money and parts on hand will have a lot of say in how this all goes down… Also what Bills got cooking will also play a large part in this as well…

 

 

Here is the pics of what I have right now.. It not a lot but it’s some of the major ones!!!!!!!!!!

Great to see man. Nice job on picking up the used stuff. That's definitely the best way to buy parts. Those axles and tires are practically new still. Bill will take good care of you. Congrats. :thumbup:

Gah well, I'm sure it'll be that much more bad ass once you get done with the project.

HAHAHA Thanks to all of you... I just had to jump all over them parts!!!! Many thanks to Courtney for going bigger, so I could grab them up.....

 

With the wheelin I do the GM 10 Bolt should be fine???? But I have been thinking about getting better shafts and that C-clip eliminator kit..

Right now my focus is to get what I have under the truck,...

Thanks Man!!!!! Naaaa it only looked good at a distance, It has a lot of scrathes and dings.... Need to bust some rust and paint....

 

I just want to be able to wheel just a tad bit harder and not have to worry about ball joints hub bearing, and a host of other crap that always needed changing...

yep, he should be able to get them for ya no prob. don't bother the c-clip elim UNLESS you have drums. if you have discs, it's a waste of time.

Looks like a great start! Just curious as to why your finish date is so far out? Looks like leafs, shocks, SOA kit for back, and new/lengthened driveshafts are really all you need (besides the fab. work up front)? Maybe there's something I'm missing?

Hey Crusty, it is starting to take place.. slowly but surely.

 

You said you are taking your time with this.. gathering part's, etc.

 

When is the estimated ball park time that you want to get this thing under the knife?

 

I'm really excited for you brother. It is going to be sharp as hell. :)
