Burger here. My K5 Blazer is long gone but I still want to do some mild offroading. Only car now is a 2012 f150 ecoboost. Already has a rear locker and skid plates from the factory, and recently got Falken wildpeak tires in the stock size. Ride height is stock. What else can I do to make it better off road, at least so it won't grenade the second it gets off pavement? Was thinking rock sliders, 2" leveling kit in front, getting eid of the air dam, and some better/more protective skid plates. Am I missing anything? I would prefer to keep the stock tire size and rear ride height. I know its too big to be great off road but I want it to be able to have fun at least. Pic is like mine but not actually mine.
This has not run sense 2006. But I have almost a complete 2nd series 3 for parts. I am going to use the drive train out of that to fix this one. The body from the parts Rover will be used on a different project.
The Parts Rover body is going on this. A 1995 Discovery. It has had a ton of suspension mods done and it is great offroad. The body was so bad it started to break free from the frame and could not be driven anymore. Hope to have this does in a few months.
meh you can accomplish plenty with it basically as is. i would definitely dump the front air damn as that is free and drastically increases approach angle. personally i dont like leveling kits but rock sliders are definitely a good idea and depends on how intense you are getting if its worth it to upgrade the factory skids.
beautiful. they all need work. i just got my 40 running again. all it needed was a starter. i was shocked. hopefully will have some new pics once it finally gets warm outside
Thanks bro. The lowest spots on the truck are the air dam and the factory running boards. I would ditch the boards completely but the wife would complain, she likes the truck because it is huge and super comfy. I think some decent lookong sliders might be an ok compromise. My only other worry is that taking out the air dam is gonna suck rocks and shit into the gap between intercooler and radiator and engine front. Some engine accessories are mounted pretty low. I thought about just cutting a thin aluminum plate and wingnutting it in that space to prevent this. Worth it?
Can't wait to take the top off again this year. Just waiting for some good weather, maybe late spring
>not liking dorkels jk i think they look kind of tryhard. then again i guess people have an actual use for them
air damn is an easy toss. thats a no brainer. sliders would be a great compromise, running boards are the biggest hinderance of all time on the trail and if you are stock height or close to it you will absolutely want sliders. meh i wouldnt worry too much about that happening. just keep an eye on it and you should be fine. unless you are high speed desert running this shouldnt be that common of an occurence. if you are that worried about it though i dont see anything wrong with your solution. best solution would be a full on aftermarket steel replacement bumper but those are not cheap.
my dick more pics bls
>tfw you dont live in utah i need to kill myself my man
i got it for a good deal because it was in rough shape but i've grown attached to it over the last couple years. i'm not sure about the bed yet; a cap is easy and there's tons of used ones around but part of me wants to go full boomer with a bedslide and RTT.
that is one clean 40! how long did it take you to find a suitable one? any plans for it besides popping the bikini top off?
great platform for some plasti dip and led light bars :DDD
i didnt know boomers like bedslides and rtt's. i thought that was a young mans game. that would be amazing you should do it if you can swing the cash. most ideal situation though would be something like a 4 wheel camper slide in or something like an adventure trailer habitat but both of those are $$$$$$
man i love that the gx is becoming a popular choice as they get cheaper. those things are spectacular.
what are your goals with this truck? im honestly curious what about it would make it even part of a consideration. it doesnt appear to have anything at all going for it. what is your thought process user i am trying to udnerstand it
I don't have anything new to post anyway, I don't wheel in the winter. Got a trip planned late May though. Winch bumper is supposed to ship tomorrow, it's diy so I'll be working on that for a week or so. I'll contribute that if anyone wants.
So because a construction site burnt down I don't have enough money to replace it so my 2WD S10 is getting a 3in spindle/shackle lift and eventually different springs since I cracked one of the original leafs at some point and only just now noticed. Gonna get a 3.42 lsd 8.5 disk brake axle from a blazer at some point but if I can find a shop that can do it cheap enough I'll try to find an exploder eddie baurer 8.8. My friend is gonna sell me some good condition 235/75/15 KO2's which is good enough for me.
Anyone in south Ontario have any Land Cruiser parts?
