Doubler is done.... (just painted up the linkage & shif trails tonight.

I had to notch the frame to get the NP205 to fit.



Made an extra bracket to hold the NP205:






Also completed the new tranny cover over the doubler (no pix yet though).

This week (July 10) I installed the staun beadlocks & mounted my new BFG krawlers.

4 krawlers have less than 100 miles, 2 have about 20% tread left.
Good tires are mounted on hummer h2 rims, while the spare is on a robby
gordon simulated beadlock. (second spare is off a rim).

How far offset is your drive train, when I had the 454-400-205 in my 800 it all fit in no problem

edit, I just realized that you are running a flipped 205

It's 4" toward the ps.

My d18 fit fine, but it wasn't as wide as a 205.
Flipped or not, width is the same .

Here is the story on pbb.

Spent the weekend on the rubicon. (disabled sports run).
Tahoe to rubicon springs Friday
springs to buck island & back Saturday
springs to tahoe on Sunday.
It wheeled really well.

Some minor problems I had to fix/work on:
1 front locking hub won't disengage
rear wheel centers weren't ground out enough so they didn't sit flush on the rotors (there is a little notch/step that gets fatter).
Power steering went out (I'm now the master of front digs).

Picked up a new power steering pump yesterday.
It was under warranty when it died on the disabled sports run (2 days short of being 1 year old).

While I was at it, I picked up a second pump, which was a bit more heavy duty.
The warranty pump will become a trail spare.

Here it is in camp just before the trip out...

Turned out the box caused the pump to go out.
I swapped in a spare box & the new pump.

Spent 8 days in tahoe (aug 15-22nd).

Took the kids to buck island & back (from tahoe side) on that Wednesday.
Explored fire roads/minor wheeling around barker pass on that Friday.
Did a rescue mission helping brandon down to the springs on Saturday...

Just before we left for the buck island:


Leaving buck island after swimming:



Returning through the springs that afternoon:

I broke 2 of 4 welds from the frame to the rear bumper on the way in to the springs. So I put the tire on the roof........
3rd & 4th welds held, but one can-opened the frame until it separated...

Awesome thread, Mike. Great pics. And we love how you wheel the crap outta that thing. Looks like a lot of fun!
Did it really have an m-22/Dana combo when you got it??? That's a new one on me.

Last week I added hydro-assist.... (still waiting on shorter lines)



Also fabbed a bracket to act as a rock-guard.
It's medium duty, but I figure better to hit/bend/hear that than the $100 ram.
(the picture is deceiving, it's not cockeyed)

The ram above was a 2" version.
I have a new stock pump (80 Chevy 1 ton truck), as well as a new spare.
Even though I ported the pump, it didn't have enough volume/flow to make the ram move fast enough.

Rather than spend lots of $$ on bigger pump (since I already have 2 brand new pump), I decided to get a new/smaller ram (1.5").

I recently noticed that when driving on the street that my dash/front body was vibrating a bit more than the cab.

At first I thought it was the front body mounts.
I upgraded/reinforced them but it didn't help much.

Further investigation revealed that the inner fender wells/where the fender meets the floor/next your feet, just in from of the door rockers was badly worn.
There were large cracks/rust holes.

I had cut out a section on the ps & weld in a new section, along with some angle iron & support pieces.
Ds is the same, only I covered the inside with an identical piece without removing the section.







(the round hole/patch is old from a few years ago.. Po put speakers in there).
