well went out and did some light wheeling today, out in the laguna mountains area. shaking down the bugs out of the car. didn't air down at first, cause there was a ford expedition following me on the easy trail that follows the washes i was in. oops, bound and broke a stubby shaft! (anyone have a few they want to sell?) i only have like 2 more spares... so a little over half the day i was running on one rear shaft and a front lsd. which sucks going up climbs... night day differance in traction... so here's some pics! hope you enjoy! and whoever says subaru's can't play... :-p :cool:

Have you thought about putting in a longnose R180 or an R200? Only problem is driveshafts. Not sure what splines they are on the nissans.

maybe a wee bit... not much bigger than yours and a little shorter than ken's brat. i'll make some drop bumpers for it... it's a suspension lift in my eyes... so it's not illegal (except bumper height)... subframe, higher gvw :( ....... a lot of the front pics are up hill and the suspension's pulling out. and or flexed on a rock. and remember, i'm only 5' 6"... a few of those shots are from down hill, making it look bigger......

Do you have hi-res copies of those pics? The last one and the one two up from it would make great desktop pics.
Maybe email 'em to me if you can? I've got another use for them too.

the marine corp measures me as 5'6"... for the last 4 and a 1/2 years... :)

yeah i did just replace the left side... and blew the right... should of aired down, it might of still broke, but it broke on shock load while twisting and bouncing on a rock. if i would of been at 12 to 15 psi (at least, these bfg's flex really well!) instead of 30... i probably would have had plenty of traction and just crawled over. instead of that lovely light and slow bouncing effect i got... it's even more important with the lack of flex i have with the independent suspension to air down on the rocks. but i wasn't even planing on doing those washes... since my friend was following in in his stock expedition... i just passed a few of the crossings... and finally took the turn into the washes... i couldn't resist the feeling to really play!

i'll try to remember to measure tomorrow. it's around 12 to 13 at the diffs and 14 at the tcase... but it's been years since i've measured. the rear diff is the lowest point.


yeah and here you can wheel in any navigatable wash... which means you can pretty much wheel all over... :) i'll miss that when i leave.

That thing is an absolute animal. When your Yota becomes the wheelin' rig, will you sell it?

not sure if i'll sell it... it's my first car and there's a lot of memories... it'll probably get the diffs opened back up and used as a DD.
