Thanks. I'm actually leaning more toward c right now. I actually like the look of tubes but I just don't want it to mess up the look or anything. I'd more than likely order a kit and make them myself since that's a lot cheaper and technically it'd still be built.

Okay made up my mind! I'm going with either c or d! Most likely d to stay with the built not bought theme!

hey guys.. sorry its been so long since ive posted.

to catch yall up..

i bought a truck tool box and took out my rear seats and installed it..



also bought a t176 4 speed and dana 300 for $200 in great condition..















cleaned them up and painted them charcoal grey..





While I had the dana 300 out i ordered some twin sticks and did the shift rail mod to get full shifting capabilities.





Finally installed them last week and its running great.. had to shorted a cherokee driveshaft but it came out great.. Even made my our shifter cover.



















Old t150/dana 20



New t176/dana 300



old dana 20 and t150 is for sale.. still in perfect working condition.. comes with everything to install it..

Well most recently i bought a Dana 60 full float rear axle out of a 73 ford f250 and a 8 lug dana 44 front axle out of a 79 chevy k20 pickup. I'm currently working on getting everything ready to install them.. shouldnt be much longer.
