    I just picked up the front axle that I have been looking for.
    Thanx Aaron (AGM73k5) That's gonna be a sweet rig when you are done.
    Now all I need is u-bolts and a u-joint.
    I found the wheels I want from Tyres International. 15x10 with 4" B/S for $64 a pop.
    By the end of the month I should be rolling with the new axles. [​IMG]

    The rear is a 4:10 and the front is a 76 D44 with 4:09.
    I am going to use up the 33's that I have then I will be going to 36"tsl's.
    By the time that the 33's are gone I will have the money for the tires and a 6" lift.
    BTW I just seen a 70 something 3/4 ton 2x4 in the nickle ads for free. Just haul it away.
    Grab the 14 FF and what ever else ya want and sell the rest to the scrap yard for $50.

    Mike I wish I could get a D60 for a good price.
    But I feel that the D44 will serve me well for now. [​IMG]
    I am fixing to go out and shave the 14 bolt and snatch the carrier out and take it to a friends house and weld up the spiders.
    I have another set so if we get a bad winter I can swap back to an open carrier.

    I'll give you the u-joint I was running if you want it :) I completely forgot about the ubolts, if I find some I'll let you know. Both completely those parts slipped my mind. If you find anything else missing let me know and I'll see what I can do.

    the u-joint I need is the hybrid for the rear.
    As for the u-bolts I am going to have some made that will be long enough to accomodate a 6" lift.
    If you have the top spring plates I do need those.
    Other than that everthing is good to go.
    I tore the axle down and it looks tip top.
    The steering arm was a bugger it took me 10 minutes to get it off. Gotta love those those cones. But I just so happen to have a set of cone pliers that makes it real easy.
    If ya ned some help geting yer rig together let me know.
    I found a direct route to your house that is easy on me. Ha Ha.
    That half cab is the coolest thing I have seen .
    Lets get that rig together and go wheelin!
    Oh yeah when I get ready to remove the camper I will let ya know since you so graciously offered. [​IMG]
