Well, I went with the Dana 44 and Yukon chromos in my ranger. Seems to be holding up just fine so far with a lunchbox locker and some nasty deep mud and occasional big rocks. I went with a 78 bronco d44 chopped six inches and eb Yukon axles. The high pinion really makes a difference in the driveshaft angle and the Dana 44 has a little more ground clearance. I'm running 38" tsl's
Best of luck on any decision.

LETS WHEEL!

Too bad I already built my dana 60 ball joint axle after Dusty bought the parts rig.
Pat, any plans on trussing that axle a little? I know it will add some weight but I am pretty sure you can build or buy a light weight kit. Just dont do what I did on my old 60 (long gone and sold) and add half it's weight with truss material!

The axle is an F250 axle housing. It is thicker than the 100/150's. And yes I remember telling you to not truss that 60 like that lol.

Got most my lines made and installed. All Northern Fluid Power. Best guys around in my book. I have a lot of AN fittings now. Swapped from a 98 Jimmy fuel filter with a push lock, to an 88 TBI double bump fitting style filter and ran hose right off the stock location. Used the push lock for the return line. Return comes off the regulator after stepping down. I'll throw a second turn dial regulator on the return to further dial in carb pressure.

Gus helped me out and sold me a serpentine setup off a 91 TBI truck. I have all new water pump, steering pump, and alternator.

My transmission cooler will be mounted to the underside of my hood with a vent. It's literally the only place it's going to fit. My exhaust, shifter cable and drive shift on the driver side is going to be epically close. Not sure how that's all going to work out yet. And I am almost thinking the ear on the corner of my bell housing is going to.habe to come off (pass side) for my exhaust to clear.

Had to notch the transmission cross member to fit the new process 241.

Default Re: 98 Jimmy on tons.

Well, the motor is nearly done. Just have converter bolts, and cooling, and some wiring left. I finished the fuel system and the power steering lines.

I finished the serpentine system. Had to rob an idler pulley off the Vortec. But it was too big and the bolt was too small. I went and got a V8 one, but it didn't come with hardware. So I found a bolt that was correct and milled out the collar and washer from the old pulley.

I ended up cutting the ear off the bellhousing of the tranny. Made more room for the exhaust. I will need two 90 degree AN push locks for the tranny lines. I need the lines to run up the top of the transmission. There is nowhere else for them to go. Since the exhaust comes down right where the lines would go now. I think I spent 400 bucks on fluid lines and AN fittings lol. It's paying off though. And they will take the abuse I'm going to put them through.

The two last big ticket items I have left are exhaust and drive shafts. The rear needs to be shortened all of 2 or 3 inches. And the front needs to be completely made. It will contain an IFS flange output into a CV into a slipper then finally the D44 yoke end.

Still need to figure out how I'm going to do the shift cable and t case shifter along with drive shaft and exhaust all in the same space lol.

Need to wore up the Painless switch panel. Will be starter, fans, fuel pump, and volt guage.

Then it's on to resembling the core support and figuring out my cooling. Hope you guys are enjoying this. There's been a couple moments of "eff this". But I've had a couple good people around to keep it in check lol.

RCVs will hopefully be here next week. Then it's to Jones for the shafts and the exhaust shop. I already have my ball flanges and a 50 series Flowmaster. Screw the haters. I still like a Flowmaster.

Looks like your getting a lot closer. Got my rig out up to hatchers yesterday and it did well. Overstuffed the suspension on the rear a little and ended up bending some sheet metal but no broken parts and smooth trip overall.

Thanks man! It is getting close. Doing fluids right now, and waiting on Tim Jones for drive shafts today. Tomorrow morning it has an apt for a Y pipe for the exhaust. The RCV shafts come in on thursday. I leave Friday for two weeks. Will be back for M&G. I'll be replacing the clapped out 52s up front with some newer ones. Need the lift to clear the exhaust and front drive shaft. It's a tight fit.

Got a lot done. Have my rear driveshaft. I'll be driving it tonight. Ran into a couple snags. My steering pump pulley was bent and nearly threw the belt. But I was able to straighten it. Had a fuel leak after the filter on the high pressure side on an AN fitting. A hose clamp fixed it. Not happy with the hose. I'll replace it. Turned the idle down a touch and timed it. Oil pressure is perfect, and so far it runs at 190. Another bummer, my ceramic high temp header paint peeled off. Not happy. Oh well. Lol. Had some help in the shop too. Couldn't have gotten this for without Gus, Martha, Jason, and Nick. Another thanks to Northern Fluid Power and Tim Jones.

Of course, I had to over tighten an AN fitting on the return port of the main regulator. So, have to go find someone that has what I need asap. I wiped Northern clean of their whole stock. I'll call Jackavich and see if they have any. Was supposed to have this on the road by 9:45.

When I ran those tires, they performed pretty phenomenal in all conditions the lower I ran the pressure (as with most tires obviously). About 8psi was super impressive in the mud. Although with that power, you may be prone to tearing them up more at lower psi, depending on how heavy your foot is. Awesome job, post lots of pics on how she runs!

Thanks guys. Took it out for a spin last night. Needs some more tuning. But it ran and drove great. Tires don't seem to need balancing.

My RCV shafts will be in tonight. Tim Jones said my front drove shift will be done today. Since I had issues yesterday morning, I didn't get it into Quality for the Y pipe. He says he won't have time till tomorrow. So it may have to just wait.
