SAS upcoming. Hopefully next year.

Front Dana 44 high pinion out of a 77.5 F250, leaf sprung. Locked (probably e-locker), hi-steer
Rear Ford 9", locked, maybe disc brake conversion, leaf sprung

Unsure of gears, depends on tires

Tires: keep the 33"s or max go 35"s, we'll see once I get the axles underneath


Man this thing is never ending!
Nice ideas!:idea:

Change of plans!

Dana 60/60 combo.

Already have the rear:



Just need to find a front.

Hopefully sticking with 35s, but we'll see... may have to go larger.

Eric and I both have some explaining to do. :D I am hoping to get some action shots of mine this weekend. My guess is that Eric is being slowed by winter weather. We deserve an update, though.

Slowed very much by the weather. Both axles were covered in snow for the past few months and I didnt feel like getting frostbite trying to dig them out.


Anyway, I found a front dana 60 and picked it up sometime in November.






So they sat for the worst part of winter waiting for warmer weather. This weather finally came a couple weeks ago:




Brought the rear axle down to my shop so I could start rebuilding it. Figured Id do one at a time... that way I wouldnt get mixed up. Did the rear first because its cheaper and easier.







So now Im just waiting for some parts. Probably have most of them by next weekend. Then I can piece it back together and bring the front one down.
