    <font color="green"> Oof, I don't know if I even want to think about how much I have going on right now... Let's see...

    Dana 60, the housing is cleaned and ready for install of the following, which I already have -
    ARB
    5.13s
    35 spline outers
    Warn premiums

    14bFF, this housing should be cleaned and ready for building by this evening. All I have for this right now is the 5.13 gears, but a carrier with welded spiders should be on the way next week. Disk brake conversion parts will be ordered next week, then crossover steering soon after that, quickly followed by a hydro assist setup.

    Rockstomper beadlocks will get ordered probably early next month.

    Also have a complete York OBA setup planned, mostly assembled and ready to rock, I just need to make a mount for the compressor. Here are some pics of the main pieces for the OBA. The tank isn't shown, but it's a 6.5 gallon job that will go under the bed.</font color>

Before the Fl run I have to lift it, and it looks like Im going to have to run all new springs cause my back is sagged crooked in the rear /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif Need tires, gotta get it aligned, and need some pare parts in general. I didi get some stuff done though. Yesterday I got my battery secured so it won't fly off and hit the fan, got the rear diff serviced, took my amp and sub out and found a tool box im going to bolt done it their place /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    I find THIS ironic, I couldn't wait to get a Dana 60front; now that I have one, I am too lazy to swing it under my truck. No mounting issues, it's the same gear ratio as my rear, have the block for the steering arm, just too damn lazy to get it done. /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif BUT, the rear is getting disc brakes today (thanks DERBINATOR) and new rear perches (thanks rockjunkies). I just have to decide if I am too lazy to bend the hard lines on the axle. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Same here...the D60 is just sitting in the carport. i have a few things i need for it though. Some kind soul is sending me a steering block soon, I'm about to order the weld on ends from avalanche so I can build a rock-rod of sorts. I will also be doing rear disc's before the new 14 goes under the truck...gotta order brackets soon.

    The number two thing I need to do at the moment is send in my $25...the money order is just sitting here on the desk/forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Finally my number one thing to do is pull the welded spiders out of my diff for Shaggy...then I can ship the carrier and spiders finally!

    Damn I feel lazy... /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    1. FLywheel cover (need to buy some bolts so I can put it on)
    2. Corvette Exhaust Manifolds (need to find some manifold studs for use w/o heat riser first)
    3. Front reciever hitch (need to get off my lazy butt and finish welding it together, buy I need to buy an oxy torch before I can finish it)
    I guess that's it. I have lots more plans, but that's just the stuff lying around.

    I have a rear Dana 70HD that I'm building but I just can't get motivated to finish it. I had it narrowed to normal width, I finished the rear disc brakes using front D60 parts, I have all new bearings and gears (5.86). All I need now is to order some custom length Moser axles but I'm just too lazy to assemble it to get an exact measurement. /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif

    Boy do I fit this Category well. I have had some of these parts since the Fall of 2001! Here goes:

    1. Clocked WMS Dual Transfer Case NP203/NP205 - This setup will allow flush frame crossmember like Watson's.
    2. TH350
    3. Fresh 350 with Pro-Jection system
    4. Missouri Offroad Outfitters Shock Crossmember
    5. Rock Ram Hydro Assist Steering
    6. On Board Air system
    7. Add a few bars to the cage
    8. Rocksliders - built in (a Must!)

    Things I have recently bought and will be selling because I am purchacing a matched 4.56 geared 1 ton setup (Oh Golly, I get to change my signature again!)

    1. 4.56 Gears for Dana 44 and 12 Bolt
    2. Detroit Lockers for Dana 44 and 12 Bolt
    3. Warn Shafts for Dana 44

    Now that I have changed the idea to 1 ton, I will have to buy and install the following out of necessity. /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif

    1. Dana 60 ARB Air Locker
    2. Dana 60 Crossover Steering Arm
    3. Disk Brakes on the 14 Bolt
    4. Custom Beadlocked 8 Lug rockcrawler rims - I designed a set of rings similar to the Rockstompers.
    5. Hydroboost Assist Brake System

    My want list is here:

    1. BorregoK5 Shackle Flip
    2. 42" Super Swampers
    3. A MOO built Neil designed front bumper
    3A. A Daisy Red Rider super carbine air rifle with a compass in the stock. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
