OK MORE MORE MORE>> tonight was very productive thanks to my buds showing up...

Well tonight I took my 30 spline rear end out of the trug, I cut off the coilover tabs... next I took stock axle out, and I cut the coil spring perches off so I could weld them onto my old housing.. over all I think it came out AWESOME!! and i looks very clean and strong..

I still need to put on my new rear rovertracks links, but i was in a hurry tonight..

Also the rear springs are OME 762 disco front springs... In the rear they give it a perfect height. My new softer and shorter front coilover springs will be here tomorrow so it will be level..

I am loving this build up.

Q: are you going to do anything about sealing the coilover cut-out in the front inner wings/mudshields? We currently have a similar issue with a project and have all but decided to just leave it open, but I am still concerned about crap getting into the engine bay.

Thanks!

As far as the front coilover I went a little plasma cutter crazy! Im gonna leave it open, I try to steer clear of mud as much as possible, so I dont think it will get to gummed up.. However it would be really easy to take some sheet metal and weld it in to the hoops, and the old original inners...

I think you'll find you want to cover it. I ran without the stock covers for years before finally buying some (I guess the PO had aftermarket shocks and went back to stock for the sale) and even that little hole let in way too much mud.

How high is the top of the fender off the ground? It's hard to gauge the height.

charles
p.s. The shocks and mounts came today. thanks again!

Not bad. That's only 6" higher than mine with a 2" OME and half of that is likely in the tires.

Looking good!

Mine's 49ish to the top of the wing with 32" tires.

That's an inch more lift than I have, leaving the tires out of the picture.
Not bad, but I know I want to be 1" to 2" lower.

Awesome thanks for measuring that man!


OK more updates yesterday afternoon I started working on my rear bumperettes... this is what I came up with, they will be welded on the rear crossmember just as if it were part of the crossmember itself..

You represent a very limited extreme rover community very well at events like King of the Hammers. Just wanted to say I like your D-90 and always have.

Thanks a ton man. That is a very nice thing to say for sure. I really appreciate it!

So how do you guys lower your trucks? Raise the top shock mounts?

I like the bumperettes, will do something similar with my trailer, but in 2x3.

Coilovers are adjustable via an adjustment ring. Once you run out of that you can get softer springs, once you run out of that you have to relocate the upper or lower mount. They can actually be quite involved to get set up perfectly.

Exactly.. I have my adjusting ring all the way up, I think i can go a little softer on my primary spring if i had to, but i'm gonna wait til the cage is done to see where its at..

IM not looking forward to changing the height of my mounts! so im gonna avoid that at all cost.. i have it pretty much where i want it...

I think a picture of richard simmons would go nice on your 3/16!

Well tonight I got all the front brakes done with new rotors. Tomorrow I will hook up my stock drive lines for now until I get some new ones, then I'm gonna bleed the brakes, and I should be all ready to drive this bad boy over to get the cage work done..
