Ever cursed auto engineers? The solution is to tear their stuff up and start over.

Dang almost 3 months since the last update. Got alot done but not putting in near the hours since summer started. We did fill the freezer w/sockeye when set netting was open and have had the atvs and TH out a couple times, even worked a couple of "trail" projects. But that's not why you're here right

Here are some pics of the front axle housing.

I busted the pilot drill on my hole saw after making one hole so the rest of the drain holes are 1"





The pieces on the flat are the lower spring retainers. Kinda different putting the springs in front of the axle. If it doesn't work I'll try something else. The flange at the top is for a brace that mounts to the drop in.

Thanx It'd be great if it all works on the first try. Maybe next summer we should have a run of the "rockwells"

I wish I had something to report. Summer progress has been painfully slow and the next six weeks are booked up. The axle is still hanging from the cherry picker But the lockers should be "in the mail"

I did get the seat frame mocked up. Visability over the hood sucks. Cant see the ground for 25' in front of the rig Tore off the front clip and am working on other options.

Designing the trans case linkage (triple stick) has got me down right stumped.

So its still a great big pile of parts. It takes a bit of imagination to "see" a completed rig

Holy Crap! 25ft! Small animals like year old moose better watchout. Maybe a camera placed in the bumpers front and rear would help. That would be cool.

Finally back at it. Had a bad case of withdrawls, shakes and all :-)

Got the first air locker installed and need to test before final assembly. Anybody built or bought a tester like the ARB #ALTG01 I might be able to borrow?

Not sure if I'll add taper cone washers. Problem has been finding longer tap-end studs. Probably just run'm like this

Triple stick v2.0 I think this will work better than the original attempt. Got a couple links fabbed up, grainger was short two rod ends so ordered them via their web site. Should be here soon. The 205 shifts very very hard, I mean it requires a pry bar and doesn't seem to have been twin sticked.

More progress on the front axle. This thing has become a project in itself. (the redneck spacers are temporary :-)

Rockwell boot guards

The rest of the 'design'


Cut, tack and see if they'll fit




The top of the wings are too tall and hit the axle. Final version is alittle shorter.


Knock it apart, pretty it up and tack one all together




Test fit again (sorry for the lame pics)
