Maybe pm me telling me how...

BTW- that Jeep of yours with the 35s- how much lift does it have or is it a body lift only? I'll recheck your profile page, too.

Is there any reason that I couldn't relocate the front trackbar from the front driverside frame mount to the passenger frame mount so that fitting a Dana 60 with a passenger side pumpkin is easier?

OK- just got an answer to my own question- NO

The bump steer due to trackbar angle and sterring linkage angles will evidently be wicked. NO!

You were looking at a chevy 60 That will only keep making problems.

You should be able to find a Ford king pin 60 some how. There all over the place.

I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer but are the GPS cordinates under your screen name possibly where you live?

I also am waiting to see this build too.

Yeah, duh!! It has been so long that I forgot. We are geocachers and this seemed just like the best way to say where we were.

Yes, but i have a good NP205 pass drop. Besides a little extra fab it will turn out the same in the end. Lots of guys have used them- no trouble.

Also- this Dana 60 that I'm waiting for the reply on is brand spanking new- kind of cool for me to actually have something as big as this that is new for only $1200 Canadian. For you guys in the USA 1200 Canadian is like $150.00 US dollars.

.

Yeah, forgot you said you had many a TC to choose from. That's what I was talking about. But IIRC, Don't most of the guys cut off the chevy inner C's and weld on Ford parts? I've read this a few times. Don't know if everyone does it, But most like the Ford king pin better. What have you read/Heard?

I know for many a purist wheelers this is sacrilege, but it works for us.

This won't be a crawler or desert racer. It will haul trailers, climb long unmaintained mountain roads and passes, pass through open forests, ford creeks, and drive through any ditch we aim it at. That is about the extent of the wheeling it will do.

I don't know about that- i mean I really don't know about welding on Ford outers... As long as the pinion angle and caster come out right without cutting that'll be fine with me. I'm still looking for a Ford 60 but they are gone around here. The local hot-rodders and collectors are all out of ideas it seems. Boohoo.

Just so you know- the town I live in is actually quite isolated- like a 3 hour drive to a good U-Pick, and it is in the USA. I have the highest all-weather mountain pass in North America (with great old logging and mining roads) immediately to my west and nothing to the north or east for 4 or 5 hours... This is a great place to live so I can't complain! Getting around though can be time consuming and expensive.
