KYMC.ORG Ride Today

So a couple of guys from our group went out today. Im going to post some pictures of mine, and looking for some suggestions for my rig. It did pretty good overall, but high centered alot, LONG wheel base. So suggestions for more flexibility, crawl ratio, etc. would be appreciated!

Get an atlas or doubler for a better crawl ratio and make it look like this.

Also, I dont have shocks in the back, so it was a pretty rough ride today, I actually think I grew an ab before it was over due to bouncing so much lol.

But I do have shocks in front and leafs all around. What would be the best set up for rock crawling?

First off for that size truck you need some 40+ inch tires. Don't lift it just hack the sheetmetal to make them fit.

Second get some 5.13 gears for the diffs.

That will give you a good base to work from.

Not sure what my gear ratio is, but I have a chrysler 9.25 in the rear and a D44 w/ ezlocker in the front. Are these ok to run 40s with?

Oh yeah, the rear has a limited slip for some reason, not sure where it come from.

This is my old blazer with 52" springs in the front and shackle flip with 56" springs in the rear. 35" tires all around. If you want flex this will give it to you.





I did add shocks after a while, but they are not really needed unless you are driving fast.

Also don't go over 35" tires with your axles.
