Been wire wheeling the hell out the housing, lots o rust. Inside was pretty nasty too. Welded the tubes to the housing today, threw on a Ruff Stuff cover I bought used. Ordered some knuckle gussets and a truss from Ballistic.

I pulled the trigger. (a small bonus from work helped too) Said I wasn't but I've been reading how it's hit and miss with the chromos made in India and Korea, how sometimes people are breaking ears before u-joints because the D44 shaft ain't much different than the 30. I plan on doing the hammers more often and didn't want to take a chance. Plus American made. My ccard actually turned to dust after I punched in the numbers. Skinny Pedal Racing got a great deal. Still need to get the gearing done but I'll keep posted. I know Dana 60 this and that but didn't want to have to start changing everything.

Congrats on the RCV's Paul. I just couldn't pull the trigger on them in the end. Im sure you'll get great use out of them at the hammers and I bet your credit card will recover from shock sooner or later.

Gonna gusset and truss the D44 before I send it out for gearing. Had to take a pic of possibly the best bead I've ever laid . Ignore the boogers around it. Corners and gaps challenged me on the rest. Also before and after of the waggys. New bushings and pads, graphite between leafs.

Pulled the rear axle out, getting both re geared to 4.88. Was a debate I had because of the 3 spd, that or 5.13s even though I tow it most of the time. Wanted it still streetable. I know the 4 to 1 Roc Trac will more than make up for it. Painted the ubolts for my 8.8 so they wouldn't get all rusty again (waiting on lecture about reusing ubolts). And if spending money on RCVs wasn't enough I got some Yukon hubs so it'll be a guessing game on whats the fuse now. Will it be the locker? Gears? DS? T case? Door # 1,2 or 3? I think staying at 37's and having a little pedal discipline will make nice.

Yukons are supposed to fail locked if they break so I wouldn't call that a fuse.

4.5" RE in the back with 6" shackles in the back, stock waggys front. full weight on the springs. (plan SUA back, SOA front) not sure how this is gonna turn out, waiting on axles to get geared. Anticipation killing me. I may got SOA all around. If it sits too high I may go SUA front as well.

Summer vacation sucks! Watching kids killing my free time!! Anyway finally got a chance to bolt in the D44 and it kicked my ***, notched the spring perches a little because they sit a hair wider than the YJ springs, also notched the pumpkin for the u-bolts to hug the axle. But took me longer than it shoulda, I get rusty when I'm not wrenching everyday.

Was installing the rear axle and I noticed the fancy RuffStuff spring plates weren't in the best shape, were bending as I was cranking the u-bolts down. This may not be an issue if they were thicker steel (1/4"?) but they're not. So I opted to go the $20 junkyard ubolt flip route. These came off a Dodge 1500, I think the chevys are identical. I'm realizing this build is 80% hindsight 20/20 shoulda gone this other route and coulda saved $$ blah, blah, blah.....
