Flame on...

What up guys/gals...

I introduced myself on the main ttora site: poseur

I am looking for some good peeps to go wheeling with in Tucson. I live in Sahuarita, and need to get out, haha.

I do expect as much ribbing as possible, My "home" is nissan4wheelers, and we have a couple of jeep guys there that are always gettin ribbed. They are always doing runs either in Phoenix area, or up by Flagstaff... never down here.

Anyway, just dropping by. Hope to wheel soon

Hey Man..

Welcome to the board.. we do have some members in Tucson, but he majority of the "active members" are Phoenix wheelers..

Nice wheels you got there.. I'm trying to figure out how much lift you actually have since the 33's actually look pretty small. Truck looks plenty capable too..

Later.

Just keep an eye out for upcoming runs and show up...simple as that. Do you have any problems with that spring under setup? Seems like they would be getting hung up all the time. Welcome!

What's the thing on the dash? Is that a gauge cluster or am I seeing things?

Hey guys,

Thanks for the compliments.

Last question first - it is a JDM inclometer from a Nissan Terrano in Japan. It measures pitch and roll, and has an altimeter... got if for the bling

My SUA setup... yeah, those hangers are prone to getting nabbed on the rocks. I am gonna fab up some better ones that will fully recess the nuts on the bolts. It flexes pretty good, and should be pretty capable. I have a friend on the nissan4wheelers.com site that also SASed his Fronty almost the same way, except he is using rough country springs, and I am using Rancho 44044s.

Total lift... is probably 12-14" over stock. I will start with the 3" BL. In the rear, I flipped the springs above the axle, giving me approx 5" there. I kept the 2wd springs, but added a 2-leaf AAL from Calmini, another 4". Stock length shackles. The front... SUA (duh) with rancho 44044s. They are supposed to be a 4" lift spring for a wagoneer, but the front end of this truck is nowhere near as heavy, so I am probably getting some more arch.

The bottom of the front bumper to the ground is approx 34", the sliders to ground are 24", and door handles to ground are 50" ...hopefully, that gives an idea for lift,

confused???

So I thought nissans were drivers side drop (front differential) - at least mine is.

And the pics you posted confirm that: http://pic10.picturetrail.com/VOL320.../170642045.jpg

But all your swap pics show you using a passenger side drop:

huh?

i found the cure for hope

What is the reason for running spring under in the front?

Alright...
I used a passanger drop axle because I was originally going to run dual cases... I was going to use the nissan (which is driver drop), with a divorced marlin crawler box behind it. Well, that got to be more involved than I wanted, and being a daily driver, I couldn't keep the truck down for more than a weekend. So, I sourced a driver drop axle, and pulled the pass one out.

I did spring under, because I didn't want the rig to be 30' tall. This truck is my only vehicle, so I wanted it to be comfortable for highway driving, and easy enough for my fiance to get in and out of... As soon as I pick up another car, I will probably relocate the springs, and set it up for high steer... but for now, it serves the purpose that I want. Plus, I can still park it in the garage, haha
