    Yee Haww I picked her up ahead of schedule last night. One of my kids was sick so no point in dragging them all with early in the morning to get it, my daughter went with me and we met the guys (Tony and Alan) at their hotel and loaded her up.

    I wanna give a big thank you to Brian aka "big pappa b" for all his help in setting up the buy and the shipping! You really helped me out brother. I also wanna thank his buddies from Deleware 4wd for hauling this monster out here, Tony and Alan aka "1TonTJ" Thanks guys! Hugh help there and really friendly. /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I know I know now where are the pics, well I got home after 12 last night and was too tired to shoot any (full day of classes followed by rearanging my 2 700's, 350 block, 208, and 203 (moved them all into the shop in the basement) and then 5 hours on the road). When I unload it after Church this morning and stick the rims on it I'll get some shots but this thing is HUGH and extremelly clean! It looks like I could stick it under the truck right now and roll with it! /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif If only I had the right gears and rims to do that. Well now it's time to find the funds for regearing and the ARB, the drums will stay just as long as it takes to figure out how to disc this monster.

    I'll get the pics up this afternoon. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Here's link to John's (nvrenuf) narrowed & disc'ed Dana 70HD:

    Even if you stay full width, you can make up a new flange to hold the D60 caliper bracket and weld it on. IIRC, there's a healthy 6-8" of axle tube between the stock flange and the seal surface.

    Thanks, I had seen that before but i guess I didn't realize it was an HD too.
    I think I may be able to work some of that into this even though I'm not going to narrow mine.

    Now off to unload and stick some temp rims on it! /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif



    Oh cool! New smiley! /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif

    This is the best shot I have of the pumpkin.

    I can shoot the bottom tomorrow when I have some light.

    I'll be able to tell better how much I can shave if any when the covers off too. /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
