It has begun... what's funny is it won't look ANY different at ALL lol. it drives so nice now i don't really want to mess with that too much, but some things i've been meaning to do finally starting to come to fruition...
so this is how it sits/is right now:
RK 2.5 stock mod, 35's, bumpers, winch, D44/30 open with 5.13's, etc
My goal is to keep it just as friendly as it is now but make it more capable. What i just bought from riverraider:
freshened up Front Rubi D44:
4.88 gears (they'll be getting ditched)
Manual lockout hub kit with warn hubs and 5x5.5 bolt pattern
RROR diff cover
I have a bone stock rear rubi 44 that's been sitting in my garage waiting for some love.
i'm putting in an order in the next week for:
Rear alloy shafts (to convert to 5x5.5)
Tatton driveshafts front and rear
Rear Upper control arms
new ATX justice wheels in 5x5.5
I know it's kinda mundane stuff but my idea was to make this look the same (not too extreme) but really build it to work. Eventually i'll put a rubi crawler in it and i figure i'll have a "better than a rubi" daily driver. I'll have the D44's, lockers, and a killer low range when/if i need it.
Anyway, just figured i'd share.
