Rear axle is on.the front I need to grind the pumpkin a little to get my perch to fit.ill post better pictures as I'm installing the spring perches.hoping to have the body on 2maro,then I can start putting in the drive line and making motor mounts and cross members.

Front axle perch is going to have to sit on the pumpkin of the Dana 44.so I'm going to smooth it down with a grinder.

I ended up having to grind down the perch quite a bit to get it level and so it would fit around the pumpkin firm.

It was a pain in the a$$ to grind all that,and in the end it finally came out.I used the perch on the right to compare the height of the perches so that they were even on both sides.it came out nicer then I thought it would and seemed really even.
