    All I wanted to do was remove the np203 and replace it with a np205. I knew that a new rear driveline was going to also be inorder since the np205 is shorter. But while waiting for it get shipped to me and looking at the blazer on stands I figured now would be as good of a time as any to do a rear disk conversion. Then I got a line on a D60 so that got swapped in. Might as well go with a 52 front spring swap and crossover from ORD. So I am now becoming and ORD junkie and it is like a crack addiction.

    So here is what all it took to do a 203 to 205 conversion.

    New 205 case from CK5 member
    ORD drivesleve

    Dana 60 from CK5 member Jimbo (GREAT GUY)
    Kingping rebuild kits ORD
    Crossover steering ORD
    52" springs from the junk yard
    ORD bushings
    Home built shackels
    Superlift Extended brake lines

    I still have to finish up the rear 56" trying to decide on shackel length with the flip kit I have on there now. Thanks again for the spring Jimbo.

    I'll be giving High Angle a call for some drivelines soon. To bad I am past out off funds or I would have got a doubler and 3 stick :D

    Yes it's an addiction! It starts off with a small upgrade and you say to yourself "well while I'm into it this far I might as well do this... and this, and and and.." and then before you know it you're $5k+ in debt and your truck hasn't moved under its own power in more than a year. But it's fun ain't it? :D

    btw I love the camo frame.. very unique :thumb:

    I got a new 2wd box, but it had the newer o-ring fittings so I just swapped out the sector shafts.

    Not sure on the rear driveline as I am staring at it on the ground right now pondering the 56 rear swap. I new stock heigth 52" with 4-6 flip right now in the rear.


    Yes the range box of the 203 is waiting for a doubler but that will more then lickely have to wait till the motor swap next year.

    Got the rear disks installed. 56" inplace and now have decided to go with a flip and switch from DIY4x4. Already sold the lift shackels and other flip kit I had installed. One of these days the "bucket" will get off the jackstands.

    Installed the front F250 towers and 15" procomp shocks.

    I know it never ends. Can't decide on what I am going to do with it, ie above or below springs. It is a bit tweaked out not in. Strange to see since most are bashed in from rocks. I can't find any marks on it from damage. I wonder if someone had a strap around it???

    Do you have a p/n for the shocks? I can't find a spec list of pro-comp shocks anywhere.

    you need to do something about those shocks.

    they stick out like a sore thumb.

    a camo frame is cool as hell.

    my junk isnt even finished yet and i want to start on another.

    Figured I had about a week to wait for the switch and flip brackets from Kurt at DIY so I had to find something to do to the "bucket" while I waited.

    Got the front end mocked up today. There are more pictures in my sig. I took out about 15" of the front width.

    Got the fender brackets on. Cut down the hood. Stripped it bare and welded in a 1x1 frame. The frame was super wasy to build. You just have to notch the side pieces so you can bend them to the contor of the fender in 2 places. I then added two tabs in the center section of the hood to provide support. I would have done it differently next time. Learn as you go method.

    Next time I would strip the hood and not cut it to match the fenders. I would then build the 1x1 frame and attach it to the fullsize hood. You could then use a body hammer and wrap the hood around the frame. This would leave you with a clean round edge. I got in a bit of a rush with the cutoff wheel and didn't think of that until after the frame was built.

    Anyone have a freebee hood :rolleyes:
