New guy from San Angelo.

I have been reading this site for a while and decided to join. I have a 84 CJ that is built very mild and am about to finish the first phase of my 89 K30 crew. They are not real crawlers yet. I have been spending too much time and money hunting for the last 20 years and have decided to go another direction with my hobbies.

Some specs on the crew cab. tbi350/TH400/NP205 D60 Front 14FF rear It was stock when I got it, with bad fuel pumps, broken off dipstick tube pouring out oil, no flywheel cover on the trans and tons of other little crap problems along with a junk bed. I never planned on having a bed so it went straight to the scrap yard. There was a rough country 6 or 8 lift in the back seat so I started there. All I used was the front springs and shocks. I installed a set of ORD brake lines, and steering box brace, a Parts Mike crossover steering arm and drag link, along with a used 2wd steering gear. In the rear I stripped the frame down to just the frame rails and front spring hangers and started over. I put a DIY4x shackle flip and switch in with some junkyard 64" 2500HD springs, this required moving the shackle hangers back and a 5.5" longer driveshaft. Now this truck is really long. I also put a suburban tank at the rear of the frame. I have a 9' Easley flatbed that will be going on for now and later I may pull the flat bed and chop out 20 or so inches of frame. I plan on using this for my getaway vehicle/base camp and having the jeep as the crawler. I am not cutting any corners on the truck as I don't ever want to be stranded. I have rebuilt most components short of the ring and pinions (they are 4.10 and I am going to see how it works before installing the ARB in the front and probably change out the gears). The engine is getting MSD tune up and stainless shorty headers and a magnaflow converter and muffler. All this engine and trans will most likely be going in my other CJ to make room for the 12 valve that is sitting in my shop just waiting for a home. That would be phase 2.
