New cross members hoop cut and installed!

Forgot I moved the transfer case forward so I now get to cut 3in out of my new driveshaft and weld it together… groan…

Scored some tire carriers and got one that’s an OEM mount.. going to mount it so it independently swings open and I’ll mount 2 max tracks to it!

Also got the magnets and hinge for the fuel filler tail light mount (right now I have to take the screws out of the driver tail light to fill it with fuel! So lame!

Next up is swap the front output shaft on the transfer case and mount the cut down driveshaft!!

Guess who’s finally 4 wheel drive????

Two days before exactly 4 years since I started this thread and this project

Transfer case works and shifts perfectly I can put it in front or rear wheel drive it’s funny if I put it in front wheel drive and have one hub unlocked it will torque steer like a high-performance tuner car!!!

It turns even tighter in front Drive only with only one hub locked (I have a front locker that will lock both front tires vs standard 4x4 vehicles that really only drive one front and one rear tire when the transfer case is engaged… I have front and rear lockers so I’m full 4 wheel drive when I flip the switches!)

However I did confirm the vibration is partly rear axle but the transfer case is bad.. very bad vibration since I installed it and needed to get the front driveshaft connected to confirm.. time to hunt a new one since I did rebuild this one and had concerns

It’s been 4 years in the making since I bought the van and a 12 year dream to get a 4x4 pop top turbo diesel van!! Yolanda really is my “Tubine Princess”

Yeah.. there’s a hillarious embarrassing story about that name…Click image for larger version
