took off the LA's from mocking them up the other night. sanded everything good so i can plate the rails, still, then beat the **** out of the "frame rail" trying to get the driver side stock LCA bracket off. i hope the other side comes off easier

Do you think you're going to like those LA's? I'm looking right now and not sure what to go with for suspension. I just picked up D44/9" axles out of a '78 F-150 the other day. I will be regearing and locking them before they go under the HEEP, but I'm not sure what to do for suspension or what lockers to go with. It's going to be mainly a trail rig, but will see the road to/from the trails and around town once in awhile.

i think im going to LOVE them. they are huge!!!! when i was looking around i was origionally going to go with this setup. then i thought about tnt's setup and was really going to go with that b/c of the HUGE skidplate it comes with but then i found out that they do not warranty their kit and although im not planning to break it there is always that chance so i went back to the clayton kit and when i found out that they have free shipping i was sold.
