BAM! At my bros place, let the fun begin. Found her a nice front row seat. Than began to take some of her weak parts off with a cut off wheel. Followed up with mocking the truss. Before I begin grinding her down in prep for welding. While I was giving the axle a once around noticed my ball joints are done. So, did a road trip to the parts store. New ones all around.

Let the welding begin.. starting with truss. Then working to the trackback bracket, c- gusset, finishing with control arm brackets.

Like replacing your Dana 30 front and Dana 35 rear?... my recommendation find the axle you want in the lower 48, you will get a better deal. Have it shipped up with your household goods.

Which route do you plan going in the-- Rear Dana 44,10.25,8.8, 9inch, Dana 60 or 1ton, 14bolt
--Front HP30,HP44, Dana 60 etc
