It begins.....

Just put my deposit down on a set of JK Rubi 44's, am taking it in next week hopefully to have the gas tank lifted, and the rear bumper built......

Pics will follow with progress. That is all. Thank you for viewing

Its getting the spare tire well cut out, and the gas tank lifted, thanks to Mr. Pancake's idea last night , and the rear bumper built. Going to try to tie some tube from the bumper into the rockers, then into the front to help protect the body, and up to the front ARB. Also "covering" more of the tires, so my wife won't get pulled over once a week for fender flares

Sweet Caribou I can't wait to see these Rubi axles! You're getting front and rear axles right? What needs to be changed for them to work?

I'm going to re-do the links as well. I'm dropping some serious coin into this thing, pretty much using up my Cummins swap fund for the Powerstroke, so I hope that damn corn binder motor lasts a few more years.

The powerstroke should hold up OK. Ford did push more power out of those engines than they were meant for, but I've seen buses with the International version of the engine (T444E) with over 230k that still run great (and these aren't owned by a company known for good maintenance).

No you don't. I got you a D30 for free. Plus, if you find a home for my trailer, you have a house/garage to live in
