    Any one running more than 8\" lift?

    I have a question for any one running more than 8" of suspension lift. What mods are needed, what about drive shaft angles, vibrations? I have a Superlift 8" lift and want to go bigger. I have already dropped the transfer case.

    Where did you get that front axle? Was it custom built or did it come out of another 4x4?

    I got the Dana 44 out of a 79 Bronco took my old axle to a local shop they put new tubes in and used all my outer hard ware it cost me about $300.00 to do this. Thanks for the compliment's.

    Thats a pretty cool trick. I am surprised more people aren't doing that. That would really help drive shaft angles.
