Today I got my bumpers just about finished up. And I gotta keep flipping my frame and each time it just gets heavier and heavier. I will post pics of my bumpers when I finish them tomorrow.

that rearend is not gonna be as easy as i thought i got it all torn apart to replace the bearings when i started to take the hubs off the right one is like fused/rusted to the shaft. and i broke the puller trying to take it apart. so i just cut off the bearings and got the brake assembly off and i guess i will just have to get one piece axles now... on a seperate note im getting the whole frame and both axle houseings and all mounts sandblasted on wednesday next week. i will take before and after pics for you guys when its done.

If you need help or info on rebuilding those diffs, let me know. Also, the one piece axles are where it's at! Especially for the price

Thanks but I'm just gonna reuse my stock axles and make them look good and replace the bearings. Then I can sell them for a lot more later when I do an axle swap.

so today i started to take the hubs off of my rear axle shafts ant the right one is like fused/rusted to the shaft. i put the 6 ton puller on it then set the threaded side down on the concrete and beat on it with a huge hammer. and it still didnt move at all. so tonight i wrapped up the shaft and hub and put it in the freezer and tomorrow i will heat up the hub and hopefully thet two will come apart.

on the other hand i got the perches welded on to add another 3.5" of lift plus the 1" of the spring plus the lift of the spring at 2.5" for a total of 7" of lift.
