Welcome to The Beater Site
Axles - Gears - Lockers - SAS


A couple of years ago I wanted a project vehicle to buy and build up. I didn't know then what I was getting myself into. I figured a lift, some tires and off road lights and I would be ready to wheel it. Well I did that. Then after seeing a few Super Broncos like Bronczilla and Chris Chu's rides at fullsizebronco.com I decided it was time to take The Beater and take it up a notch.

I started by filling my garage with lots of shiny new expensive tools like a Mig welder, tube bender and half of Harbor Freight Tools inventory. As I was getting farmilliar with my new tools(toys) I started looking for parts to build it up.

I started by purchasing a ford 8.8" rear axle with 4.88 gears and an ARB air locking differential. I also bought a Dana 44 front axle with 4.88 gears and a true track limited slip. The rear axle was complete but the front was missing the knuckles out and didn't include any of the mounting options. I was on my own for that.

This writeup has gotten so big I have had to split it up into multiple pages.
