    I guess once you get bitten by the bug it never leaves you. I am going to take my left over frame and drivetrain and make a tube buggy. My new project is a super light weight rig with maximum ground clearance.

    If anyone can hook me up with some old 1/2 ton running gear at a dirt cheap price that would be great. I need leaf springs too. Let me know so I can get back in this and go wheeling with all you cool guys. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I might have the 1/2 ton axles and springs. Where do you live? If interested, let me know.

    Thats exactly what I am wanting. Let me know what kind of deal we could work out! I am in central Iowa and have a little S10 at my disposal. 3.73's are perfect because I plan on running 36's with a doubler. I need **stock** leaf springs, I am going to go monoleaf at all 4 corners.

    Its kinda funny I couldnt give my 1/2 ton stuff away now I wish I still had it!

    Any way let me know what kind of deal we can work.

    THX!

    Brent,
    As another option, I have a set of '71 1/2 ton axles. They are a D44 and 12 bolt with 3:73 gears. The D44 is open and completely stock, except for the '77 non-flat top knuckles and tie rod. The 12B has Richmond gears and an Auburn Pro-Series limited slip.

    Currently, they are still under my Suburban, but I will pull them if you want them. I am almost ready to swap in my 8-lug D44 and 14BFF so it is no big deal. I would like to get $300 for the pair, I have alot more than that in the 12B. Let me know if you are interested. I would be more than willing to meet you half way somewhere along I80. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Thanks all for the great offers. I am going to have to put this idea on ice for a month or so. The tranny went out in the shaggin waggin to the tune of $1700.

    I know you are slowing down on the project, but I've got some factory front springs in the garage that you can HAVE!! They've been sitting in the corner since I pulled them off my rig. Your's if you want them /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
