    Yeah, they are sweet axles, but I will be paying my mom back forever (but hey she doesn't charge me interest and I can do stuff like fix her car and she needs some plumbing replaced, and I happen to do that so I can work it off that way)... but the price is a 1/3 less then Boyce for the same thing, so I think I did well. It's the shipping that sucks price wise, but hey it's only $200 more then if I buy a set and rebuild them myself with the parts I need for disc brakes and so on.... So I'm happy... /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Yeah if only I had a different t-case I'd be happy because my tranny despite being a 700R4 is nice.

    But anyhow.... yeah I got some 38.5" tires waiting for rims, and know basically what I want in the rear for a lift and flex (like Rene's 57" Ford springs, but I am still trying to figure out how to keep it at 6" height but avoid body lift).... it's now the front... no clue there... what would you suggest?

    kind of a cop out answer but...
    aftermarket 2" lift springs for the ford??? or a taller flip like Borrego's deal
    I like the ford 57 front idea I just wish tRusty would get on it so I can see the pitfalls
    I am tempted to get my lil brothers stock 1/2 ton dragged over here so I can do the swap just to check it out
    he would most likely be pissed if I pulled the springs from his Bronco to shove under the front of his wreck while he was on a trip to Cali

    Not knocking your decision but do you think drive flanges and a welded diff might be a little hard to steer though...

    Cool, lucky you!

    Only thing I would say is that the 2.5" ram is too big. It will be very slow steering. My 2" ram is too slow and makes "panic steer" situations much more panicy at times, especially at idle when fluid flow volume is limited...

    Also, I would get some lockout hubs and carry the flanges as spares. Then you could put a locker in the front. /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    Anyway, congrats!

    I have to agree on the ram. You will be better off with a smaller one. Also the welded front is fine but use lockout hubs instead of the flange. With the lockout you can unlock one to make a tight turn easier. Just a word of caution on a welded front, if you wheel it hard you will bust parts eventually. If you are not balls to the wall with it you will be fine. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif Roger has a welded pumpkin that I am probably going to through in mine when I do the 35 spline outers. /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif
