Looking good man... are you upgrading your axles while you're at it? How big of tires are you going with again?

no axles right now. found a 1 ton D60 for $250 and when the guy gets in a 60 front he said i could have it for another $250 so ill have a set of tons and im thinkin somewhere around 38" tires but not 100% sure on that yet. gonna have to go with 33's right now due to the axles themselves and the fact that i dont want to re-gear them. they are 3.07 right now so anything bigger then 33 will kill me

I'm running 33's with 3.55 gears, but I got a set of axles from a '79 F150. I'm not sure if I want to go with the D44/9" setup or just sell them and go with D60's or D60/14 bolt combo..... I'd like to run some 37-38" TSL's or Nitto Mud Graplers when I do.

SYE, my bad. i was typing too fast last night i guess. i ordered it from PORC. anywhere you order from you get pretty much the same thing and they had it for the lowest price. their shipping would have probably been fast too if UPS didnt screw up!!
