Re: Fat City Pre-Runner build



It did end up a bit wider than I thought. It's a couple inches outside the fenders.

Re: Fat City Pre-Runner build

Thanks dude. I'm way stoaked on it. It rides 100 times better than the stock junk on the street and in the Mall parking lot, where I plan to spend most of my time...

We're leaving this afternoon, so I'm trying to finish up the stuff in the bed.
Ultimate camping set up.
64Qt. Engle fridge/cooler.
I also scored this tool box my brother was gonna S-can. I robbed all but to drawers out of it and am going to use it as my "camping pantry"

Re: Fat City Pre-Runner build

It's an import clamp that I got from my local weling supply shop here in Elsinore.
Kartek has them also, but they're almost twice as much. I got these for about $30 a piece.

Did about 50 miles of dirt Friday night where it absolutely kicked ass, couldnt be happier with the ride.
Saturday morning we woke up, got everyone moving and did about 25 miles before we got to the one spot I would need 4WD.

At some point, due to to much travel, the axles pulled on the stub shafts on the front housing untill they yanked the full circle clips that hold them in, off.

Trying to get up a rutted articulated hill climed I broke the 1310 yoke off the rear axle... No wheel drive...

I'm working on eliminating the disconect and have a 1350 Driveshaft with a slip being built today by Coast Driveline in Ventura.
Hope to have everything back together by Tuesday.

Had the front travel strapped at 16.5" but I'm going to re-strap it at 15"

Here's a pic of me jumping a tow truck... It was AWESOME!

Re: Fat City Pre-Runner build

Gonna get rid of the Slip Yoke


A little machining and some drill and tap action to the T-Case main shaft to bolt this Chromo 1350 yoke on to the 4406.
Coast is building me a 3.5" 1350 Chromoly driveshaft.
Should be bullet/Baja proof
