FWIW the only major difference between a current D44HD rear and a D60 is 3/4" of ring gear. The Rubicon 44s went to 60-size pinions and tubes a while ago and the JL's axle has massive pinion bearings. You can even fit 1410 U-joints in the front Cs. Those axles have come a long way over the years.450 torques is more than enough for any offroading.
I'm more concerned that someone at FCA thinks that Dana 44s are enough axle for 37" tires with that power level. Yeah, I know the rear is an upgraded version with a slightly larger ring gear but north of 400ft lb I'd like to see a 60, especially with that tire size.
Can you buy a tent?.... Oh, and I guess I should mention this here. I am divesting from virtually all of my project cars by virtue of receiving a code enforcement notice telling me to do it or go to jail.
Apparently on 7/1, a new ordinance went into effect banning the outdoor storage of unregistered and/or inoperative vehicles.
Almost all of it is going to scrap because the timeframe I have to work with is very, very short.
My guess is, somebody in his neighborhood got a hold of someone in local government and pitched a bitch.So that counts for people that have collections of cars in the woods too? I can see a lot of restorable classics being scrapped, which is presumably the point of the law.
When I bought my Mustang, I didn’t know stick well enough to drive home or do the test drive. I had moved cars around with manual but never drove it on a daily basis. After a day or so, it was easy, being smooth with the clutch took longer but I never killed it in traffic.That guy would learn to drive stick, like it, and pay for the car. What are the odds of them lasting the length of the loan?
Just keep me in mind. Question is, will it be cheap, real cheap?In the event that I do an ill-advised bailout, yeah. If not, then in a couple months I'll be replacing it with something else anyway.
I think this is attempt #3 for me to buy it from him...Just sell him the damn Toyobaru
Possibly, send me a list of it's current state, when you get a chance, no rush.A couple grand, delivered to the Amtrak station in either Kansas City or Oklahoma City?
... What kind of hellworld have we come to where Amtrak is the most sensible way to travel without a car?
