So.... As some of you know. I've bought a 95 RRC LWB from TigerDan... bone stock but not for long. Dan is doing most of the work except the tire swing and sliders which will be done ala Pedram...
I have received some info from colin as far as suspension stuff goes
my goal with this is a super-solid trail rig that i won't worry about like the LR4. it needs to get me and my family where we are going comfortably (more and less) and safely. i talked to Simon (i think that's his name) at RTE many times and went with his recommendations.
This is my first RRC build... What i'm looking are for suggestions if anyone sees anything i've looked over, etc.
One thing I am struggling with are tires.. i originally wanted 35's. Some have suggested 33's which behave much better on the road so i'm a little torn. also 35's will (from what i have been told) take a lot of cutting, etc. perhaps a tall 33? i don't know. the RTE stuff will be another 3 weeks or so before it arrives. i hoping to be able to run it in June, but i know its a lot of work. after slickrock i'm a littly gunshy of beating up the LR4 on trails that hard. while it was ok, i think i would have had more fun if i wasn't so worried about banging up the fenders
anyway, suggestions, comments welcome!
so far i have purchased:
