    thanks, I got my Dana 60 bolted up in front and the 6"tuff country springs on along with putting my Boggers on the wheels :D . Will do the rear tomorrow after I clean up the 14 bolt.

    Oh, by the way, there is a 4" ORD shackle flip on the rear even thought it doesnt look like it :D

    39.5 x 18 x 15 boggers, and thanks for the good comments...tonight I finished the 14 FF install and got the lift springs and tires on it. Just need to fab up my X-over steering and get a "bastard" u-joint to go from the 14 bolt to the drive shaft that went with the 10 bolt. should be able to post some new pics tomorrow, but I am tired now. It took two days to swap the D60, 14 bolt (that I had to rebuild :blush: ) , put the lift on, and put a 10 bolt front, I pulled out, back in the 1 ton so I could move it out of the shop...but I think it will be well worth it.
