wow mate this is a killer truck and an awesome read took me ages to get through it all but it was worth it...
here is my j10 australian spec d44/d60 np208 and 4spd man sd33

when i bought it i dragged her out from under a tree where she sat for 12 years


and as it sits now 2 weeks later cleaned up on 33" maxxis bighorns


pretty much only 1 rusted corner in the floor pan thats it and after 12 years changed all the fluids filters and fuel she fired straight up and ran great sorry to hijack your thread though lol keep up the awesome work

Looks doable. My only concern is that the larger spring eye will be on the rear instead of the front. Not sure just exactly what problems that can cause, but guess I'll find out soon enough. It might have been better to just redrill the center aligning hole, and I thought about it, but I don't think I'd be able to drill such hard metal.
I've never heard of anyone doing that, so it must not be a good idea.

I should have the Waggy rear axle back under the tug frame in another couple hours of work. Then will come the fun part of putting on the cab.

Sorry to drag up an old post, but what do you mean by flipping the rear springs? Front to back or top to bottom? Did you do it? Did the shocks still fit? What bout the drive shaft, did you have to lengthen it?
