Yeah, except at that price they really should give away Vaseline with every purchase. I am looking at other options that don't hurt so bad. I found one that is amazing, but is also spendy, $600, about the same as allard but more CFM, but there is one other option that might give me all the intercooler I could ever use and then some, for around $200

Threatened by a cop! My civil rights have clearly been violated!! I will have pics and all that when, if, this all works out. BTW, just went over all the details on the steering system, 1 3/8in DOM baby, yeah.

Hey, lets not beat around the bush, can it hold 1000 pounds? I can't wait to see it. The truck looks awesome, I wish I had gone with that color!

I'll have you know that the entire cage can be removed in 30min, no masking needed! But, repainting is time consuming and expensive. Plus, then I would just screw it up again.

Thats cool you can remove the cage that quick.. Why dont you just spray can it with a real good primer then semi black. Then its easy to touch up. As for mire tire carrier. IT is HD and can carry up to a 40" rubber. I will have pics for you soon. I don't know about the 1000lbs though. lol.


David, I would check out www.eastwood.com and pick up there rust inhibiting primer then the underhood black. ITs a great paint and all in cans so you can touch up really easy if you had too.

Ref the replacement Twisted Performance intercooler.

Inherited one of their intercoolers when i bought my 300Tdi D90. Coupled with the afore-mentioned fuel pump tweaks the truck ran like a dream and would pull top gear all day long. I'd have no hesitation in recommending TP's enlarged version of the standard item. Go for it.

FWIW. When i eventually sold the D90 it had 155,000 miles on the clock. Half of those had been done with the larger intercooler fitted and the fuelling tweaks. The engine had never been opened, didn't consume a drop of oil or water and it still pulled like a train.


Word of warning to those looking to open up their fuel pumps. Once you've eventually got those damned screws undone it's not uncommon to find the inside of the pump full of crud and rust with everything nicely siezed up.

Please wheel it before you add any more junk to it. Since the first time I've seen a picture of this truck it's only been in a shop.

Oh I'll be in San Diego 12/27 to 01/03 so get it done so we can take it wheelin, or better yet get it done so I can take it wheelin and show you how it's done

Hey!! You know better than anyone why this damn thing has taken so long! Besides, who is talking about adding anything more? Junk! A roll cage is not Junk!!! The truck will be done shortly. All I am waiting for is the 15in calipers, hehe, and the 1.5 axle shafts to be shortenend. Should be 2 weeks max. We can get together when you come down fo sho. I might even let you drive, but beware, it will be like going from a Ford Fiesta to a M5


Thanks for the info on Twisted Kev. I will go that route if I can not find a cheaper option.

It's funny you mentioned that because we went over that today. I never knew how complicated and how much you have to know to get this type of thing done correctly. It is a combination of a pressed brass washer and a main seal. Mine is a little different in that I am keeping the entire D60 outer assembly and changing the bolt pattern over to rover. To be quite honest we got into such detail about the tig and tolerances and such that my head is swimming a little bit.

Yes. Originally I had just an outer seal at the "C" but as you turn the wheel it causes the ujoint to oscillate and that outer seal begins to leak. I've not put these brass seals in yet, as they need to be turned down a bit in order for the 1.5" shafts to fit thru the outer end with some margin. They slide into the inner housing just as the shaft exits the side gear. Hopefully it will cure the leak, be sure you adress this before putting your setup together.

This was one of the first things that Cliff said. That the seal was very important due to the movement of the inner shaft. I will snap some pics to show what we sued. It actually looks somewhat similar. This is about the 40th axle he has done like this so I think he developed a system for it. Problem is, after an hour, he was only half way though explaining it to me.
