    A couple of real world upgrades

    Problem statement: The spring pivots on the rear of my junk were giving up the ghost, the outside support was collapsing into the floor, and the blind nuts were both broken off inside the boxed section of chassis. They were junk. I was originally on a rear 4 link path, but decided against...

    Why am I such an ass?

    Why do I have to make eveything so complicated? Why is nothing "good enough"? Why does my rig have to be perfect, and not wheeling? Why not just drive junk, and actually wheel, vs. missing a season of wheeling due to an unfinished rig? Am I the only perfectionist dumb-ass out there?

    So, you’ve determined that for a variety of reasons the Dana 30 is not going to hold up for you. You need something bigger, manlier, beefier. Dana 44 is what I need, you say. Bravo. Splendid. Now get ready for a reality check. Shoving a Dana 44 under an XJ is not a bolt in affair. Far from it...

    I can't seem to see all pics in a thread anymore. The D-60 thread in ADvanced for instance. I can see the "fishing" pics, but not pics that Cracker originally posted. I checked my preferences, and I have it set to see pics. This all started after the fawing Russians attacked........

    V&V in Vault and Vodka. Anyone tried this combo yet? It's spectacularly effective at keeping you productive, yet in an altered state of mind. Mmmmmmm......wish I could add some V to my V right now, but alas, the boss would frown upon it.

    I know what you did last winter, spring, summer and early fall.

    Well, thanks to Jes, I had to tear apart the best suspension I have ever built, in order to fit his old Atlas 4.3. The Atlas is bigger in almost every dimension, except for one. Because my old three link was built around an NV4500/NP231 combo, and all clearances were withing 1/4", I knew I was...
