I'll wait till I get the money for a Detroit Locker. Which will wait till I have money for 4.88s.
Thats a better way to go. I'm gonna do the same eventually . I can't even use 4th, unless I'm going downhill.
Hatch Brat? You mean the GL wagon? Yeah, Scott did real good with it. He followed us everywhere.
I mean that black hatch that got the back chopped off of it.

The video page includes a few other trips to Walker Valley, one of which including a cutoff hatch.

That place looks like heaven to me. When I die can I go there instead?

yeah, exellent vid clips. i just watched all of them and it makes me stoked to get my new project lifted. its an '83 ea81, just picked up a set of a.a. rims. i wanna weld up my diff too. looking forward to going on a trip this winter. thats the best time to go around here. nothing like slogging thru the mud for a day!!!!

almost looks like the first hill of express way. Cant tell for sure though, I'd have to see it from the botom. or is that shark fin?
Amyway, nice vids, wouldnt have minded them being in longer segments though, I think anyone crazy enough to dl thm is going to have a good enough internet conection to handle alot biger file sizes. I know I wouldnt even think about the small ones if I was on dial up.
One of these years I'm going to have to get one of my rigs together so I can go with you guys.
Also, scott how much air are you running in them SSR's ? looks like too much. On a car like that I'd have them down around 8-10 psi. that would give you way better traction.

, scott how much air are you running in them SSR's ? .
22 PSI gives me more clearance and I dont worry about air down / up and popping a tire off the rim, also , traction isnt a problem, lack of a low enuff gear is, this allows more spin wich helps my RPMs

Oh, and this isnt ment to be a rant about your driving or vehicle setup, just my thoughts and observations. You did seem to do prety well out there in the vids!
One of these days when I get young and rich I need to get one of your 6" kits for my 86 wagon.
Also this is probably the wrong thread for this but the car you are wheeling now has your smaler lift on it right? howcome you went with that instead of the 6" ? also how is the 6" on driveshafts and cv's? is the geometry still ok or is it pushing the limits of driveability and reliability on your cv's?

running the shorter lift as this was the first car to have it installed on and it ended up being my DD . the 6" lift has better geometry then the 3-1/2" as the 3 .5 has higher CV angles , with both lifts we have not had a failed CV yet , my next car Im building will have 8" lift with a T-case but will not be my DD SJR

Is the 8" going to be a one off or the beginning of a new kit? .
hopefully a new T-case kit
