Hey 1/4,
I'm kind of up for anything. However, My buddy just built his rig, and it will be his first time out with it. Little moab is nice cause we wouldn't have to tow it far if it happens to break. He's trailering his rig.

On the other hand, the guy knows his stuff, and I'd bet he doesn't break.

I'm going to meet him at his place, then be in Lehi around 930.
I'll be talking to him later this evening, and he was talking with some guys he works with about going tomorrow.
you can call me at 783.7169

Hey,
lots of people at little moab today. don't know of any from the list other than me and my friend.

He just built his flattie, and needed to do some testing. It went really well, however, he stated early on that he probably would need some anti wrap bars.

wouldn't you know it......he threw his rear driveshaft because of axle wrap.

At least I got some good photos of his ride.

here is the flattie fully flexed!!

I'm not sure if he's a member of the list. I'll kick him and get him going.

However, here is some of what I do know.

4.3L v-6
4 speed manual trans (not sure of model)
I think Dana 300 tc
D44 front with hi-steer, ox locker, 5.36 ratio
D44 rear w/spool, warn full floater axle with lockout hubs
~90 inch wheelbase
I think waggy springs f&r
36" TSL/SX


I'll have to wait for him for any more specifics.

unfortunately, I don't think he (flattie owner) has access to the web during the day. I sent him a message letting him know that folks want details, so hopefully he'll get it later tonight and post soon after.

That is Scott, the manager of FWP. And that is a sweet flatty, very well built.

Yes, it is. I was hoping he'd log on and introduce himself, but I haven't heard from him yet.

I'll be stopping in there tomorrow, and if nothing else, get some tech specs on his ride.

Hey boys and girls,
Thanks for the kind words about my pile of Jeep. I was happy with how it performed. Damn that axlewrap, though! Ah well, knew it needed to be addressed. Some specs: 4.3 Chevy TBI, SM465, Dana300, Scout 44's w/5.38's, Spool/fullfloater/discs in rear, Warn inner/outer shafts/OX locker in front, Jeep XJ cherokee rear springs front and rear, linelocks, Toyota IFS P/S box and on and on... Also, feel free to comment on 4WPW - anything I can do to make it better for you guys works for me! Thanks for the good pics! Looking forward to next time - WITH the traction bar!

Hey Scott, Thanks for the update on the flatty. Oh and Welcome.

Question, what kind of "Linelocks" are you using?

Thanks,

Greg

Scott- Welcome to RME! Thanks for the info about your ride, is it a GPW? What year?

Scott

Thanks guys,
The tub is actually a '46 CJ2A w/ a GPW grille (allowed for a larger radiator and gets you the hinged headlight mounts so you can turn the headlights onto the engine!). The linelocks were just two $25 cheapies from JC Whitney (made by Jamar). They work - held it on that hill in the picture and allows for locking the brakes on front, rear or both axles. Took about a year and a half to build so far, so I appreciate the support. Later all.

Welcome Scott!!!

Hey, Greg asked about the wheelbase, because I thought you said it was near 90" (maybe less).

What say you?

Right about 90" on a good day. That's what me say.
