Tommy and amigos,

Would I compete in the Light Truck category?

Here are the specs on my rig. Pics attached.
ENGINE: The 4.7L (282 CID) inline six started as a 1978 VAM Concord block built in Mexico and used from 1972-1980. It has the 12 counterweight 258 crank that runs smoother, is easier on the main bearings and has more rotating inertia (important when doing some extreme crawling) than the later 4 counterweight 258 crank.
TRANSMISSION: Aisin- Warner AW-4 4 Speed
TRANSFER CASE: NP242 "SELEC-TRAC" 2.72:1 ratio with low range
DRIVESHAFTS: STOCK WITH TOM WOODS REAR YOKE KIT
AXLES: STOCK DANA 30 & 35: FRONT- 4:56 GEARS WITH DETRIOT TRU TRAC, ALLOY 30 SPLINE AXLES WITH CTM U-JOINTS, REAR - 4:56 GEARS WITH DETRIOT TRU TRAC.
SUSPENSION: HOMEMADE 8" WITH 6 ROUGH COUNTRY RCX SHOCKS. TIRES AND RIMS: 35"x13.5"x15" COMPETITION MICKEY THOMPSON BIAS BAJA CLAWS ON 15x10 ROCK CRAWLER RIMS. 35"x17.5"x15 MICKEY THOMPSON BAJA BELTED MOUNTED ON 15X15 ROCK CRAWLER RIMS.
STEERING: HYDRAULIC STEERING ASSIST P.S.C. KIT
BODY: DOVE TAILED ON THE REAR, RE-ENFORCED UNI BODY, SEAM WELDED BODY, MOVED FUEL TANK TO THE TOP.
EXTRAS: CB, UNDER CARRIAGE ROCK CRAWLING LIGHTS, RACING ORBITAL BATTERY. LOTS OF WHITE SPRAY PAINT AND SHOE POLISH TO COVER THE CARNAGE!
FIA DOM EXO-CAGE TO BE INSTALLED & 2 GORILLA RTV WINCHES.

Can you post a picture of the roll cage specs?

Will this FIA roll cage work?

Would like to finish the rig before I ship it to norway:idea:

Happy Holidays!
See you at the Pirate 4x4 Jamboree in July!

Hola FINN,

Sounds like a plan. I will let you and Tore know about coming in Feb for the WRC Norway Rally.

Merry Christmas:beer:
