Re: Safari SLE upgrade-speaker question

Still following! So I’m here to admit that I am an audiophile Sarg. Schultz - I know nothing NOTHING! I do appreciate good sound though so I am truly interested in how you end up re-speakering your van. Do you have a ball park $$ amount for what you’re looking at?

Re: Shock Absorber choices?

Umm personally I would give them to anyone who asked for one. I don’t think anyone who was in need of a pearl would care where it came from. a·nal·o·gy /əˈnaləjē/ Learn to pronounce noun a comparison between two things, typically for the purpose of explanation or clarification.

Re: Safari SLE upgrade-speaker question

I was just looking at speaker sets for my van at Crutchfield inc. but I think I will watch with great interest as you explore options for what appears to be amazing sound in your van.
Carry on!? :guitar:

Re: Shock Absorber choices?

If a not very nice lady was eaten by a grizzly bear, would you sift through the bear poop for the pearls she was wearing?

Re: Front diff swap

I copied lumpdog on that one. He used rectangular steel tubing for his lift, 3”x5” iirc. I used 2”x3” because I had a chunk leaning against the shed and didn’t need to do the steering shaft. I drilled straight thu and then drilled another hole 1/2” forward on just one side. Deburring tool to dress i...

Re: Rear shock re mount

Ya it’s not a game changer either way but I’ve always hated having those things dangling under the van. It’s a cleaner look and a simple job so I did it. Wheeling here in NE. it’s the tree stumps that kill ya. You hit a rock and it’ll slide, you hit a stump and your backing up and changing your line...

Re: Front diff swap

It is a HUGE help having access to such a fine work space. Just about every tool, torches, welding you name it. I’m sad to hear your getting away from the astro scene but you’ve been a stalwart member of the society for many years and no one could blame you for calling it a day. I would LOVE to talk...

Re: Rear shock re mount

I cut and folded mine. I can’t see how two shocks designed to travel can have much if any effect on the rear axle wrap situation. I’m putting my money on the extra leaf of the S-10 pack to keep everything in line

Re: Front diff swap

Thanks Matt! I’m really pushing to get this one done. My 99 test mule never had the chance to roll down the street as a complete vehicle. I was so busy trying different and unique things like the first np236 swap and the first Torsen front diff that I didn’t pay any attention to corrosion control. N...

Thanks I’ll tell my brother you said so! I am very fortunate to have a brother in the biz. He keeps a very nice shop and is kind enough to let me wrench all weekend as long as I clean up after myself.

Re: Front diff swap

So the work continues... The S-10 springs are in and 2” body lift with just 1/2” forward slide for tire clearance. I will be increasing the lift and forward slide in the next stage but I needed to get going. I needed tires desperately and couldn’t wait til I had everything perfect so I’ll put this s...
