Both really, t'case is ~9" rearwards than stock due to the crawler box between the NV4500 & nicks adaptor and I need to get over the front 3 link cross member. So, it moves the front top drive shaft joint to about where the t'case output would have been.

The intermediate drive shaft will be just 'U' joints on each end, the front & rear drive shafts will be double cardon at the upper ends. All drive shafts will be Spicer with 1310 H/D (solid) 'U' joints.

Damn, I thought they were out of business. I contacted them a few years ago to get a remote input shaft from them and didn't get a reply!

Starting to get things bolted back together... front fenders all powder coated and bolted back on. Rear tire carrier finished off too.

Time to start some of the smaller refurbishment jobs, first up the front 8274. Stripped, media blasted & painted, then treated to a Giggle Pin heavy duty main shaft & brake discs. Will be running a 6.5hp Xp motor on it for great pulling power.







Not bad for a $400 Craigslist find

I used 'Plasticote' etch primer, grey engine enamel and bumper guard gloss black. Found it holds up pretty good for rattle can paint.

Got the rear 8274 stripped & painted, this one was in a bit of a state and it needed the first idle gear stripping down as the needle bearings were rusted up (that's what you get when you buy $300 Craigslist finds). So, I'll replace the needle bearings with the GP uprated bush kit (Gigglepin 4x4 Top Housing Bush Kit For Warn 8274) and use that top housing on the front as it'll be getting the Xp motor.





Will also swap the brake assy's over too as the rear ones a later model with the longer stiffer/spring.

Been busy on house & garden works the past few months

However, did get chance to get the dash loom 99% complete... just waiting for last order of GXL & 2 way Delphi connectors to arrive to finish the passenger side front fender loom.



How many fuses....
