    Hmm, not a bad deal, but not as good as the deal I got. A complete, 77.5 HP44 heavy duty (big hubs) 4.10s, 100% complete, for FREE!!!! All I have to do is go get it. It's not going anyway, so no hurry to get it.

    picked up the '44 on Saturday, SUBFAN's boss picked up the BBC for him, and the LT1 for himself, and left me with the 700R4/241 out of SUBFAN's 'Burb. i promptly went and spent the cash i got for the LT1 on a K1500 frame. should be picking it up tomorrow. :D

    bare frame sitting in driveway, SFA brackets here, ORD shackle flip here, waiting on springs, still hunting a rear axle. thats about it. once i get my springs i'm going to have to make a set of shackles, as Off Road Direct doenst understand that you cant get a 3.5" wide spring into a 3" wide shackle. :rolleyes:

    check out Sky Manufacturing if you want a cheap SFA swap.

    i bought the Off Road Direct SAS kit, overall, not happy with it. did some more test fitting, and its not right.

    got an email in to the owner of Off Road Direct. we'll see what he does to correct the problem.

    i would have, but i dont have a welder readily available.

    i talked to Sky from Sky Manufacturing today, probably going to go with his kit, which is loosely based on the Toyota full width kit. lesson learned, stick with a company who has a good reputation.
