89 Jeep YJ Build

I got some dana 60 front and rear axles out of a 78-79 ford truck. I want to go SOA with them and keep the full width but run H1 wheels and tires to narrow it. Anyone with pics with this set up? Any step by step build steps? I plan on doing it all myself so I would like pics and steps to do it all if anyone has any. I would appreciate it for any help, links, sites, things needed, price list, ect. Money isn't an issue either. This is my first jeep ever and I do not want to sell it or junk so I want to turn it into a awesome trail rig and a daily driver as well. Thanks to all that help.

I'm going to be doing something similar. I'm using a HP Dana 44 HD with the 8 lug outers to try and keep a smaller pumpkin up front. The late 70s leaf sprung Fords are only about 1/2" wider at the spring center pins. You can grind your pads accordingly and back fill with welding. I'm going to do a shackle reversal so I'll try to move the actual hangers. I'm not sure about my rear axle yet (haven't gotten one yet). There are quite a few full width Jeeps running H1 wheels so finding a write up shouldn't pose any problem. I've already got a set of Dodge 2500 wheels that I'm going to see how they look fir$t, I think I'll ultimately end up with H2s though. I have a 4BT Cummins and ZF S5-42-NP205 that I'll be fitting in. Copy the line below and paste in google search. Then click images on Left side of screen.

Dead thread resurrection alert! My build has taken several twists and turns but gives a different take on this style of build. Here's a link to my thread.
