probably gunna go with 5.13s or 5.38s.

idk why i chose a dana 44 exactly. i found it for a very good price, and its the best year, 79 f-250 with flat tops. im gunna keep stock shafts in it for now, maybe a locker too.

if anything major gets exploded, i want to make a 609. gregs makes me want one. lol.

I looked it up. Doesn't look like a bad idea. I'll look at it more tomorrow on my computer.

So I've had a check engine light on for a few days for p0442. Small Evap leak. I looked every where on the Evap system and found no cracked hoses and gas cap is tight. I decided I was gunna try a gas cap to see if that was the problem. So I got in the jeep after work to get gas then go to riebes. A guy noticed gas coming from my gas tank. Get home and see the filler tube was barely on the tank. Got lucky with the guy spotting it cuz I didn't think to look on top of the tank.

Got pulled over last night for no mud flaps. First time in almost 3 years with the same set up.

And a weird electrical problem. When my running lights are on and I press the brake, drivers side running and brake lights go out, but if I let off the brake, my running lights are on. I'm gunna check for a short when I get off work.

Same thing happened to my brake lights. I took them off and pulled the bulbs. Turned out that the contact points had bent and broke. Not sure if its the same issue but might be worth checking.
