It won't come out!

Recommended Posts

On the early units there was some neg. camber in the rear wheels. Later they took it out. I don't mind it, lets me corner faster, LOL!

I have the early Trooper with the wielded skid plates. I had to remove the one under the engine when I put the new driveline in. I am replacing with aluminum diamond plate. Question is, Diamonds in toward the engine or diamonds out towards the rocks & dirt? I don't think it really makes a difference and the seal/fit is better with the diamonds out. What ya think? I don't think aero drag and down-force is an issue, LOL!

I would put the smooth side down. If you get high centered, you'll be glad you did, especially on dirt. I would think you would want the bottom to be as smooth as possible to skim better over anything it may come in contact with. I plan on adding skid plates to the areas under the seats and floor boards. Twice now I clipped a rock that kicked up and bottomed quite hard along the underside of my Trooper. The step from the skid plates to the floor plates caught the rock both times and the tubing took a heavy impacting blow each time. One tube is actually punched in 1/2 it's diameter. This is an extreme example of what an uneven underside contributes to. Another time I high cenbtered with a rock trapped in the area under the floor boards. It was impossible to manipulate it free and finally had to get wenched. IMHO the less you have to catch anything, the better.

My skid plates are ALL wielded on. Later Joyner realized this was a mistake and started bolting them on. I had to cut the rear plate off and will add an aluminum plate held on with flat U-bolts I will make out of threaded 1/4" stock. The bolts will be inside and there will be six of the U-bolts.

      Hello again.  I'm wondering if anyone has used CV axles parts for sale.  Basically looking for the CV internals as my ball cages have broke open due to not having limiting straps on my shocks. Any help is appreciated.  Thanks in advance before I start looking for new ones
