    In these pics it's obviously not done, but I have it complete and running now. I haven't put the big tires on yet so i am still rolling the small donuts but boy does it turn nicely. I know it's a lot of red but it looked good when it wasn't all together. Now that there is so much red all in one spot, I don't really care for it. But Oh well, it'll get dirty in no time. /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    Ask away at any questions.

    What happens if you hook up the lines backwards? Tell us /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gifEsteban.

    Jason, did you make that dif cover ram mounty thingy?

    question/observation why not a plate going from center to left and or right of the ring gear protector? the ram puts a lot more side to side force on the setup as shown. i dont know the thickness of that cover or anything but i think it would be a little more sturdy if a LOT of force was put on the tires from the ram anyway.

    Estiban, nice setup you have. thanks. also who made your engine x-member? looks sleek and smooth.
    i want one..

    I got the high steer on. Have to put the diff armor on still and figure out were the ram needs to mount. Should get that done on monday. I'll try to get some up to date pictures.

    BTY PM me your email addresses

    Yes I did and it is 3/8". It's not going to go anywhere, especially with where he mounted the ram. I usually make those, then plate them in completely to make my covers that I sell but he wanted one asap to mount the ram to and we decided on that style.

    He made the engine crossmember, but I helped, well, at least my plasma cutter helped /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Yup, Jason made that dif cover ram mounty thingy. And i don't see it going ANYWHERE. It's pretty damn thick and like Jason mentioned, I put the ram mount high enough that it shouldn't move.

    The engine crossmember I made out of some 2x8 rectangular tubeing that I had laying around. I had a post about it a while back. Look in the link on my sig and you can see all the pics on it.

    And YES if you hook the lines up incorrectly, you will blow a seal on the box and have PS fluid all over you gargae floor and walls. So don't DO IT!!! /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    ORD high steer setup and WTO Redneck Ram.

    The box welded to the top of the axle tube is 2"x3" capped and I welded on the tabs Matt sends with the rams.

    Yes that is my vent hose hanging down. I need to put and 90 degree fitting in the diff housing to hook up the hose to avoid the bolt through the end of the ram. I have had no trouble with this setup so far and am extremely pleased. I spent a lot of money last year upgrading my steering (along with a Borgeson steering shaft), but it was worth it.
