  3. The HP and torque are in the Same ballpark as the 5.9 12 Cummins trucks of the early/mid 90's for reference, the Cummins 5.9 having less torque. The 6.6 I have is 185hp, 450ft/lbs TQ and the 7.8 is 210hp with 510ft/lb tq. They both have similar Bosch inline injection pump as the Cummins and respond Similarly to mods as the Cummins. Getting pretty excited about this build, doing some yard rearranging in preps to start the assembly and mockup

  4. It's a good run, I backed out of the entrance with my Nissan truck over the summer, it was beyond the little Nissan's comfort zone, but I did have the Xterra through both ways(winching involved on the return trip) in the dead of winter and led the group with the Ford.

  6. Picked up some more parts, another cutoff truck like the red one, with Inline 6 turbo diesel engine and transmission, deal was too good to pass up, and I have acquired the np205 divorced case as well. I will have to transfer my married transfercase guts into the divorced case. All major parts are accounted for, next will be preparing the frame to accept the engine and transmission. The 6 speed transmission in the red cab is a direct, meaning no over drive, plans on axle gearing will be 3.55:1. I have a rear axle ready. Need to pick up front diff ring and pinion to replace the 4.10:1 gear

  7. Well ... it was legitimately down overnight. Ran out of memory and it brought down the database. I'm hoping to get some of the upgrades in the home done so I can get my server rack and our proper server back up and running. Right now we're running on a server in Toronto via DigitalOcean while I moved ... move done. Now I'm renovating lol

  21. Hi Folks, I just completed an upgrade to the forum - lots of new features (many behind the scenes), security updates, etc. One thing I knew was coming was a theme upgrade. I thought I could keep the old theme ... but apparently it just changed it to partially the new default. So - I'll pick away over the next little while at getting the theme back to making more sense (mainly the header and links at the top). Possibly the biggest new change is a native iOS and Android (beta) app for the forum. I have to do a little bit of work to get it up and running, but I'll do that soo

  23. It is, and I'm really just tinkering IDK the history on the shocks, but they look new, so maybe they were ordered too long, or the integrated bump stops weren't accounted for in the overall length. Easy fix

  24. This seemed like a well sorted rig when you picked it up - but you're doing a lot to improve / correct. Good stuff as usual.

  25. RE: server going down. I put different monitoring on it so now it should ping me on my phone when it notices that the actual board is down. Formally it was only pinging to see if the server would respond - when it's showing an error on the page the server is technically still responding so I never got notified. Now it's looking for certain attributes of the forum and if it doesn't detect them it'll alert me. We will see if it's more accurate. @SQRLPWR that's a great question. We actually do get a lot of guest traffic (orders of magnitude higher than member traffic right now) - so it might

  26. commencing operation shock extension.... the shocks have maybe 3/4" up travel before the bump stops, so I'm going to add 3" to the stock tower

  27. We had a good turnout, and a stock H3 on A/Ts from the valley turned up. There was some problems tho. The red Jeep tried to bounce up the rock face at the crossing, which resulted in a broken axle shaft. He was strapped up and limped back to the road for recovery. I heard 3rd hand that the H3 had some undercarriage damage...wires and things, that's all I know. I actually got the Zuk mud bog dirty, when the red jeep got stuck and I was playing around in the dirt Was a good day of wheeling tho, and I finally saw the trail again where Tom broke his Cherokee :-)

  36. Did a little 'Reccie' this morning, drove from the Highway Garage / Metro Transit 'Park & Ride' through to the Airport / Aerotech Drive. Simple and easy, could/should be really good when there is a bit more snow though!

  37. I took that route home from the big hill last week. They made it a lot less funner by filling in the big mud hole. But there's still a few little spots to play in
