    move "14bolt FF rear axle with disc brake conversion, Dana 60 front axle" to "stage I" and your life will be much easier... otherwise you're buying gears and lockers and hubs and ubolts and all that jazz and all that will be junked when you go 1-ton. better to do it first and get it over with. ALLLLL down hill from there. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
