    decided it was time to get some work done on the Twin hammers again.. its sat for so long with a blown motor and propshaft..

    I quite liked the tyres from my TRx4  Blazer kit so unglued them and stuck a set of SSD D Hole copies on them giving a slightly bigger diameter tyre than the original TH..

    Next plan is making some new alloy panels for it.. may start that today

    Al..

    I fitted an RC4WD delrin low profile skid to my TF2, massive difference to stock, can’t wait to try it out

    Original land anchor:

    With new skid fitted:

    It’s not just lower profile but also designed better to go over things rather than hook up on them!:

    Loads better:

    Best £27 I’ve spent in a long time

    I dug out my Gelande II, put it back together and finally resolved the driveshaft fouling the transmission by swapping the axles around so the pumpkin is on the other side.  Unfortunately it’s now on the wrong side but at least the ride height resembles something a little more realistic.

    I also swapped out the oversized tyres for some 90mm Falken Wildpeaks that I orginally bought for the Range Rover and put some narrower hexes on to decrease the track width.

    I tried to get a pic of all my Jeeps, then work interrupted so they got put away. I also missed a few out.

    Cheers, I think I’m going to treat it to its own thread.

    Nice investment, I keep meaning to do this but then worry about the psychological effects for both myself and my wife.  Whilst stuck in isolation with her I’m not sure this is a good idea.

    My wife’s cool with the trucks. She puts up with them in the same way as I do her flowers.

    I need to do a Hilux line up but the effort needed is scary.

    Small thing that will never be seen:

    A bronze bushing on the end of each torquetube to take the load out of the universal joint. The opposite side of the shaft has the 2 regular bearings for the pinion

    I had to replace the SSD CVD’s on my Bobtail Rangey after one side completely failed under some light driving in the garden. The rig is very heavy but still disappointed, it’s the first time I’ve had any problems with bits from SSD. I’ve replaced them with some Axial AX31402 Axial UJ CVDs from RCBitz. I run the latter on my class 2 comp truck and they’ve been in plenty of binds with no problems.
