View Full Version : Member Rigs

I added this after the realization that there was no easy way to find what members drive, what mods they have, etc that was easy to find. This should solve that and also showcase the great variety of rigs we have here on Front Range 4x4.

I also included a poll to show a snapshot profile. Since many members have multiple rigs you can select more than one box though you can't specify if you have multiples of one make (do that in the thread)

Console is from a 1990 with a V6 and 5spd. I used the middle small piece from my stock setup.

The door panels are standard on turbo and V6 models with power windows and locks only from 87-89.

I would like to point out also that it was scary for both of em got some real good 3 and two wheel motion going.

future plans
1 Bumper and winch 9000 lbs warn not sure but prob elec
2 Aev ninth degree lift 4"(weekend rig)
3 Chipped and cold air intake
4 35" bead locked tires
5 possible dana 60 's- to go to 37" tire, may need to do more to engine well prob but i want 37" s on this thing some day.

Jeep bumpers are easy to do for anyone that fabs stuff, so keep that in mind. There are a couple of us on the site who do fab work, including myself.

Watch craigslist denver for deals on winches. There have been a lot of Warn 8-9k winches out there selling for around $400 or less. Remember on the winches that most of them have had a very easy life riding around on someone's bumper looking cool and haven't been worked very much at all. A good sign is how the cable lays on the spool. If it is nice and neat, it ain't been used much. If it looks like mine (either one), Bren's or Jimmy's (probably more, too), it has seen a bunch of use..not always a bad thing, just something to look for. Patrolman usually posts any deals that he finds so that they end up on the site.

Give a post up when you are looking to back to the states. I bet that you won't have any trouble finding a plce to stay from folks on the site..
no, only the twin batteries, i finally installed the wiring for the remote in cab winch control, just need to insatll the switch and it should all work now, i also had to replace the 4 solenoids as they wre burnt out from my attemp to hot wire the winch with some fence wire,as i couldnt find the remote for it. it would be great to cath up and see some of the local sights you have for 4x4 over there. i went dirt bike riding on the weekend in the local forest, thanks talk soon:smokin:

this roll bar came with it and it doesnt fit and barely bolts up to the body. only can get a couple in home made holes. im gonna change it to a real roll bar that fits. im now waiting on the Best Top soft top to come in at IHnorth, cant wait till its in. it cost 2 times what i paid for the scout.

Post a couple of pictures of what is happening with the roll bar as far as fitting goes. Maybe there are some ways to get it to work pretty easily that you haven't thought of. Seems if you have the roll bar in as far as the picture shows, you are pretty close to getting it buttoned up.

Sooner or later I will have a Scout II roll bar to sell. My Scout came with one and I already had one from a Scout I used to have. I have a 1/2 cab top that I want to fit on the Scout. If either of the bars will fit the the 1/2 cab top, that is the one I will keep. The other will then be sold off. Both fit nicely into a Scout II and are genuine rollbars. 1 is a factory piece, the other is an aftermarket piece.

Guess I'd better get my stuff up....I've built up several rigs before and this is what I roll around in now, mainly because it fits the whole family and camping gear.

84' FJ60 LandCruiser, I picked it up stock with a little over 200k on the odometer, since then I've added a 3" Old Man Emu lift, 4:11 gears, Aussie Locker in the rear, 33's, home-built front/rear bumpers and roof rack, sliders coming soon, recent carb rebuild, new clutch, oil pan, PS pump, comfy front seats, etc.... I also cut out the cancer/welded in new metal and got the body prep'd for paint.

Thanks to Chinawall, I don't need to worry much about the clean body anymore as I've got a nice dent in one of the rock panels. But hey, that's what the truck is for right! I've been wheeling for as long as I can remember, just wish I could find more time to do it. See ya on the trail!

Larry, you are going to have to paint yours so that it looks as good....well, at least paint it so that it is as shiny as mine......

Brad-you do have about the cleanest 60 I've ever seen. If mine looked like that, I would never wheel it...at all. That is a lot of work and it certainly shows..Before I did my exo when I just had the Baja fiberglass fenders, hood and bedsides on it, I briefly contemplated painting it a sweet Toyota charcoal gray metallic....then I remembered the amount of time I spent on my last 3 rigs buffing the scratches out before they became flat black primer. So I went one step up and did the cheapo Rhino lining on everything knowing that I was going to wheel the crap outta it....

your timing could be off too causing problems or the distributor is going as well..

i would suggest a all new plugs/wires/injector cleaning or replacement and if that still doesnt get it a all new distributor module replacement.

Brody
March 25th, 2009, 08:09 AM
Or the advance is sticking inside the distributor if it is mechanical...or it could be a nasty little vacuum leak, too....Maybe do the carb spray around the base of all your vacuum lines and carb/throttle body plates to see if the RPMs pick up. I've had vacuum leaks that caused the same thing, especially the vacuum line going into the distributor....

It's just a party. We like anything with wheels that either goes fast, goes slow, and does anything in between, on or off road...And you will find that everyone here has a special place reserved just for ex or current military rigs, British, US, Swedish, Dutch, or Russian...and if someone has something that has more than 4 driving wheels..well, that is even better..

I think that the reason for liking so many different rigs is that most of us have owned and modified a lot of rigs. I know I have...

Good to see that H3 being used off-pavement! Did your back wheel slip a tad, as mine did, on that trail on the two big downhill drops? What is your wheelbase?

H-3 off-road...thats kinda like Jumbo Shrimp :lol:... cant wait to see it in action.

To tell you the truth I don't remember if my rear wheel slipped. :o The wheelbase is 111.9 and as you can see I've got 33" tires. One mod I did do a couple weeks before Moab was crank the front torsion bars up to almost 2" and install some Trail Duty extended Bumpstops. Reason is because all H3's have that stock looking raked stance where the front is lower than the rear.

Understatement there... I had $100 gift certificate to best buy right? I go in, looking for something to blow the soon to expire cash on... and wind up leaving $1000 later with a new indash DVD/GPS/touch screen stereo system I didn't need but thought was really cool... Shame on me, but atleast I'll know what coordinates to give when I get lost and call one of yas up to save me:D

Hey Screwder,

If you SAS the front, you will want to go as small as possible since any thing over 2" in the rear will cause you to start modding to the point a rear leaves swap is more economical and durable than the costly relacement parts. Search for Fort Knox, he modified the rear with johnny joints, larger springs, and some other gear, but by the time you do that, you could spend the same amount of money on rear leaves.

The Shop I'm apprenticing for is giving me the springs off of one of his old vehicles for my rear end, and will help me fab/order anything I need to make it work. As for the front, I'll have to provide parts, but again hell assist me in installing the solid front axle. He stated hed let me do the work, but watch over my shoulder and make sure Im not totally screwing everything up. That way, being my first vehicle being worked on in his shop, if I screw anything up itll be my own lol.
