I think you may of given inspiration to do Wheel bearing/hubs one is leaking have been eyeing it as I have done frame in POR-15 so have been under there a lot. & thanks for the lr4x4.index info that will certaintly help.

Good Luck finishing your truck.

Craig - I am not really sure what you mean by 2 panels and a space in between. My footwells consisted of the actual footwell and a reinforcement on the inside. There are replacement panels available but I just couldn't afford them. I made mine for about $50. I took a lot of pictures but I used this when I did my swivel, helped a lot:

Sure! I am off today anyway. Here they are from the front. Bolted in and getting prepped for paint. Why did you leave the 2 square areas on the bulkhead you ask? I only cut back to good metal, the rusts were located mostly towards the bottom. I left the 2 square areas because that is where the chassis mount holes are. Didn't want to have any alignment problems later when I put it back on the chassis.

Anyone who's ever rebuilt their bulkhead knows what a PITA the door hinges bolts are to get off. I had to drill through 2 of them to get them out. Definitely going to use anti-seize on the bolts when I put them back on.

MUDSUX sez: Don't get it on your skin, will be there for days and will not come off until the skin comes off. Don't ask me how I know.

I once had the top of a quart of Chassis Black literally explode off the can when it popped loose (it tends to glue itself shut). It sprayed my head with about a cup's worth. In my hair, down the front of my clothes, all over the workbench. I freaked. I spent about an hour rinsing my self with the special solvent. It burned fiercely.

Nice work, but make sure to plug off the ends of those ribs that you cut off or they will trap water/dirt and rust out again.

Since you have gone this far, why not take it out and have it blasted and galvanized? Your grandkids will thank you.

Unfortunately that is our plight here in the States. We can't just run out to the store/dealer and buy replacement parts. There aren't any to go to.

As to your previous post, mud in the roof carpet? Nice. There are a couple of different types of lockers out there. I think the ARBs are the most commonly used on our Rovers. They are powered by an air compressor and you should see an air hose attachment somewhere on the diff.

http://www.offroaders.com/tech/arb-air-locker.htm
http://www.coloradok5.com/arbinstall.shtml

Some other lockers include Detroit Lockers and KAM lockers. Here's a video from some of the guys here on the forum.



Someone with more experience will jump in I am sure.

and ordering from GB? Most parts we order also coming from GB, they just have shipment coming every week so it is not usually long to wait. also they manage many cheaper parts (just grabbed from the production line, not going through packaging etc)

thanks for the links, will crawl under the car and check if there is some hose attachment... maybe he had it also only for tires.

Yes, some of us do end up ordering from the UK. The shipping cost usually kills it for us though.

Do you feel or hear a clicking sound in the rear when you make a turn?

No clicking sound when turning? Probably not Detroit locker or some kind of limited slip locker. I was told they make a sound when you turn.

Yeah, I do not think you have any lockers in there. Only one way to find out for sure. Gotta get your hands dirty. Atleast it sounds like your diff lock is working correctly though.

Yeah, the TC works great but when you drive up and there's an old VW bug blocking the entrance to your ice cream shop, you're gonna want to the lockers. The 4x4xPro World says lockers are necessary for ice cream.

you are laughing now, but if you would see my way to the ice cream shop, you would stay with open mouth! It is longer then going on the street, but the way is much worse!

Total cost at the very outside would be in the $500 range and, if you ever sell the truck, you will get it back two fold.

Damn Ron why did you tell me that? I just figured it would be close to $1500-2000. The closest one here is in Tampa. Hmmm.....

Getting stuff galvanized is pretty cheap and well worth it.

Most places have a min charge so you can blast a bunch of stuff and have it dipped for the same price as just the bulkhead.

I took a bunch of stuff down a month ago and it was $150

You know you want to
