Just for a challenge i sometimes throw the tranny in reverse and back up the trail....just kidding...

i usually turn around at the water and run it both ways...even before it was an issue. that's our current club policy, and IMHO whats after the water isn't really worth running anyway.

Nice. Know that spot well.

It is more fun turning and coming down. Twice the trail.

I read your thread on the Jeep forum, I am so very sorry this happened. I have sepnt time in the Adirondacks (near Fort Drum). Thank God you are OK, trucks can be re-built; people on the other hand are not always able to take a linkin' and keep on ticken'! Good luck and I hope the D-90 finds a nice home. Best Wishes!

You're a little late....new galvy frame is on its way, 3-link was just ordered, winch bumper on its way..... most everything except one wing has been tracked down....

you're back up over $20k now...if you're still interested i'd have to add everything up to give you a real number.

NICE! How long did it take to get to the point you could lift the body off?

WOW not bad! I have often thought about the driveway galvanized frame swap as it is the most economical. I figured I could do it in about a week (or most of it) if I have everything lined up before hand.

Ahh yes, I can only imagine all of the rusted corroded ready to be snapped bolts I will run into, I soo look forward to it! I think a big air wrench is in order for this job!

i spent over 5 hrs just dropping the tank, and trying to get the fuel lines off without having to buy new lines and pump ($550) for that rusty 90. Replacing the rear crossmember is more trouble than it is worth.

That's the dilemma I am in, I have been told it is not much difference in price to swap out to a galvy chassie then to replace the rear cross member. But I can see it taking longer because i am going to find things that I will want to replace.

Yeah, but in the end, you'll probably have to replace those things you find with a chassis swap anyway down the road. You might as well do it at once then eek it out. The great thing about the chassis swap is the chance to replace your bushings and put in new fuel lines. It just forces you to do it.

Mike, I bet we could do yours in a day with 3-4 of us. Just have you blast all the bolts for a day or two before with PB. air wrench, impact gun and cut off wheel....

LOL I think that may be the plan :P Maybe in a year or so, the frames not that bad, and it has been out of comission for too long to go out again this soon. I think I'll be replacing most if not all the bushings over the summer, just as long as the shop down the road has a big enough press! I also agree, it is a good time to replace all the other parts in need of it.

Mike, I bet we could do yours in a day with 3-4 of us. Just have you blast all the bolts for a day or two before with PB. air wrench, impact gun and cut off wheel....

and $400 fuel pump...because the pipes on it are rusted out.... i whole heartedly agree...if you plan on keeping the truck...do it up, but economically, if you can only get $18K out of a D90...better just to let the next guy buy the fuel pump...

from personal experience..it takes 6 people minimum to lift the body...and mine was completely stripped out except for the dash. i would give it a couple of days to get it done...more than 2 people on the tear down will just get in the way.

I did a new rear crossmember and fuel tank skid for about $500. A frame will run about $2500.


I plan on two more days to get it back together and tweak the 3-link, and a day to make it all blue again.




burn out the bushings and hack saw the shells if you can't find a press......if you havn't guessed by now, i like to do all my own work
