CsAMNs build thread.
 
I figured i would make a build thread. Easier to track my progress to my ultimate goal.

When i bought it:

85k miles 2.5
D30 Front
D35 Rear
3.07 gearing
No lockers or LSD
30 inch tires
The only not stock thing on it was the radio, top, and ugly bumpers.

My Goals.

D60 rear (eventually)
D44 front (eventually)
4.56 gearing
ARB lockers both front and rear
33 inch Baja claws
3 or 4 inch lift short arm.
adjustable control arms all the way around
adjustable track bars
Curry HD steering
AD SYE and TW drive shaft
1 inch BL and MML
Swing out tire carrier.
Warn M8000 Winch with synth rope.

Pipe Dreams:
4BT swap

First purchase other than maintenance was a Smitty front bumper. Bought it used for 100 dollars, just had to pick it up. Also two cheap Harbor Freight off road lights. Also removed the ugly grill inserts. 22 Oct 09

Got some new 31 BFG ATs and flat black soft 8s. 4WD parts lied to me telling me they could get me some 31 baja claws with in 3 months. Also removed the fend flairs.

That is true. I was thinking if i do go that route eventually i would just run 35s or larger.

d60's are for lead footed hillbillys

cavediverjc 05-30-2010 11:12 AM

D60 is gonna need some shaving if you want to run 33's or even 35's. Throw some 37's on it and call it good.... :D

distortedtj 05-30-2010 02:39 PM

^^^ same,,, would even worry about a D60 without 37 or larger.

If I read your original post correctly you have a 2.5L engine. You most likely will want the power of a 6, but that is your call.
