So I got my dana 70 out of the dodge this weekend. Everything looks pretty good with this axle.



It has a factory locker or limited slip and 3.54's that match my front dana 60. Someday I'll lock and gear them but for now they'll be fine to get the jeep rolling.



Got the drums off, and about to start stripping the brakes so I can test fit my disk brake conversion.
Trying to get the right socket to get this nut off so I can pull the hub. I hear its a 2 9/16" nut but I'm still working on getting the right tool.



I'll sandblast the axles within the next two weeks.



And here's a big pile brand new of goodies I've been picking up.
-Warn Locking Hubs
-Great Lake Offroad disk brake brackets
-Front and Rear Rotors
-Front and Rear Calipers

And once my tax return comes in, I'll be ordering ballistic high steer arms as well as their steering kit.

Marking up the disc brakes on the Dana 70. Great lake offroad brackets, k20 calipers, and k20 rotors. Everything lines up very nice.
Just need to get some different studs. They're too short now that they go through the rotor too.
Pull this junk off:



That's better.



Brackets fit awesome, no spacers needed. Bolt on, welding optional.



And mocked up. Not bolted together because I'm still in the process of finding some studs.

Got the jeep in the shop to start work. Pulling the body off to sandblast next this week hopefully.







Pulled the interior seats out while the truck still had power.



Never good when all your body mount bolts look like this, ugh.



Got some new parts coming in this week. BJ's offroad is sending me the rear lower quarter panel I need.
And Ballistic Fabrication is sending me my high steer arms and steering kit, can't wait.

What are your plans for suspension? Sticking with leafs, or linking it? Or is it just too soon to know?

Leafs for now. Spring over in the front and rear, the rear will get a shackle flip. Maybe someday I will link it, but not right now.
No idea where I'm going to find springs to handle the weight of the Cummins, but I will figure that out soon.

SEriously what I want to do

I totally just inherited a 1990 Dodge Cummins, but it is a 2 wheel drive. I now want to do what you are doing, but It will take me more time to build my 88 wagoner. I was hoping that you would take the time to post your shopping lists, and maybe where you are buying parts. I was also wondering how you plan to reinforce the frame as I don't think it can handle the torque of the Cummins. My plan as of right now is to keep the dana 44 front end from the Jeep use the Cummins, and three speed automatic and Dana 70 rear axle from the Dodge. I still will have to figure the transfer case situation out though.
