    Anyone have good luck with the BA10

    I haven an AX-15 (5 spd) and D300 w/ 4.56 gears on 34s...... It is about perfect. 75 MPH is about 2700 rpm (oh, I have a 4.0 also - they like to curies at 2700-2900 ish on the hightway; much higher than the 4.2). I can't see how the 4.88 won't be too high unless it never sees a highway....

    I just bought and installed the rugged ridge heavy duty kit. I really liked the quality for the price. It appears to not use “off the shelf” TREs; but they don’t appear to be too expensive from rugged ridge...

    ‘82 Engine Swap & Restification

    I might have cheated a bit on the front axle placement; but not with the shackle reversal (that I know). The SR was on it when I got it; so I didn't have a before and after to compare. When I got the custom springs; I wanted it centered a tiny bit more; Alcan put the spring perch pin either...

    ‘82 Engine Swap & Restification

    I'm guessing stock width and 35s is going to give up some turning radius.... I'm likely going Izuzu D44 rear; just re-drill the rotors and add a locker and be done with it.... '63-69 J-200, J-2000 65.5" '63-69 J-300, J-3800 65.75" '70- 72, Gladiator J-2000 frnt-63.5" rr-63.81" '70- 72...

    ‘82 Engine Swap & Restification

    I'm running 295/70/17 tires (measure about 33.5 dia. - most equivalent to a 34" tire) on 17" method wheels (8.5" W x 4.75 BS). Tires stick out about 3" on each side... I know that 1" spacers wouldn't keep them out of my springs (tried). I do have a shackle reversal; but that shouldn't have...

    ‘82 Engine Swap & Restification

    I'm headed this direction as soon as funds are there... I want to be 60-61" wide (safe clearance to springs on both side at full lock). I currently have 2" spacers (I know, I know, but its temporary) allow the correct width. With 7 deg caster and an alignment it tracks down the highway at 75...
