Thread: Home made mods.

    Re: Home made mods.

    I havn't had a chance to put any mileage on the suspension yet; I had thought about trying to put a sleeve through the frame but wasn't sure how I could do that and outboard the springs at the same time to allow for the Dana 44 front end to fit. I trimmed the fenders considerably and installed a long travel front driveshaft so hopefully I won't have any issues under compression and extension.

    I think your main issues will be ground clearance at the shackle if you take it offroad, and onroad handling as the front axle will move rearward quite a bit more when you hit a bump since the leaf spring is not level.

    I modded up a dome light on / off switch to use a hard top rear wiper button. Now, when I take my doors off, I can just flip a switch and have my dome lights off.

    My factory t-case shifter knob broke. So I found a 20mm dummy round at a military surplus store. My new t-case shifter!!
