It has been a while since I have updated on here... so,

I cut my front fenders
Fixed my rock lights
Welded in a flowmaster 40 series

I'm buying some trail gear 67 inch sliders this week and welding those on
And Spartan locker rear? It's a good price. Any pros cons about it?
And gears, 4.56 front and rear.

Went wheeling last night and saw I needed to extend my rear bump stops. I'll upload pics when I get off work.

It's been a while since I've updated things.
I have a high pinion Dana 44 from a 78 Ford f250 wms is 68 waiting
And a 14 bolt from a 75 Chevy 2500. Wms is 67. Cleaning them up.
Gunna get ruffstuff specialties heims and brackets for front and read long arms.
Thinking IRO 6.5 inch coils.

Do you have plans for the speedo? I would like to build new axles, but I don't know how to have a working speedo without the ABS on the axles...

I've been reading up on that cuz i want a speedo too. I heard you can get a 242hd with a slip yoke eliminator and a speedo output. You need a dakota speed converter or something else to make it work with the computer. I need to find a 242hd now. A 247 with one tons would suck.
