Nice! It's already cleaned and ready for perches (or link tabs?).

Lookin sweet dude. Have a question for you? when you did your dimple mod did you have to modify your fuel pump and return so it would fit back down in the tank? I vaguely remember you saying something like that. Since my motor swap I have to run an in tank pump now so I'm wondering if the hump at the bottom is going to create problems with my new fuel sending unit.

I did the dimple mod too. I didn't have to modify my fuel pump although it was close. The hump comes from the front and almost pushed my fuel pump back. If this happens you'll need to bend the fuel pump cage to the rear. This might result in a quarter or half inch of lost fuel though. It didn't for me though.

Thanks sooner yeah mine has a pretty good hump in the bottom so I was wondering if someone had to modify the pickup and returns. I know the fi jeeps had some sort of sump/baffle in the bottom dont they? Anyways I will just have to see when I attempt to install it.

So yesterday was a long day for me. I drove 6.5 hrs ONE WAY to TN to grab this axle. It is an '88 Ford King pin D60. Its nice and clean with no rust or anything. This is a diamond in the rough out here on the east coast.

I will not be throwing this under my rig anytime soon. I am still in the collection phase of my one ton swap. I will also be moving states again in less than a year and dont want to get involved in any big projects.


a couple pics

Yea it looks real good. The plan is to stay leafs in front for a while and just link the rear. My leafs work awesome up front.

If i remember correctly I had to cut down my pickup tube just a hair. nothing to the return.

Nice cart. Lol

Mine has worked great, but I think the casters are near the limit now that it's almost back together. It only needs to last a few more weeks.

Thanks, as you can see i copied you when it came to the cart. The cart i have for my Eaton sucks. Its hard to move it and the damn axle falls sometimes when trying to move it. This should work a lot better. I do think I'm going to have to make a couple little changes though. The '88 only has about a 3" short side tube, which obviously doesnt fit inside 2x4" as you can see in the pics. Thats why its sitting facing down. The drivers side is sitting on the cast.

On another build I follow his axle fell on his finger. It was as bad as you would expect. There was bone sticking through skin. The xray was horrific.

Your dolly seems smart. I'm now more afraid of falling axles.

Are you planning to run leaves with the D60? If so, are you planning on outboarding or retubing the short side? Or are you not planning to run full width? I'm currently debating what route I'm going to take with mine as I'm not ready to take on linking the front either, so I figured I'd see what your plans were.

Nice jeep too, btw! Started following your thread sometime last year and love what you've done with it man.
