    I finally finished my 3/4 ton swap. This was a major pain in the butt. The list of trouble I had kept going on and on and on. Oh well, now it's over and all is good. The only thing I have left to do is get my SS rear brake hose on. I had to use the original cause I accidenlty cross threaded the brass block on the SS [​IMG]. So I'm gonna call ProComp today and get them to send me just the block. Oh well... I can live with that. During the swap I installed:
    4" Lift
    Denny's HD Driveshaft with 1350's
    14 bolt FF 4.10's (Replaced seals and complete brake job)
    10 bolt 4.10's (Replaced seals and wheel joints and complete brake job)
    Alternator (Old one bit the dust)
    Brake Master Cylinder (Old one wouldn't bleed correctly)
    ProComp SS hoses for 6" lift
    And some various other parts...
    I'm very pleased with the was it looks now... however still seems kinda small with 33's [​IMG].

    Congrates. Be carefully with the 14ff and those 33's. You might get stuck (high centered) on a speed bump. [​IMG]

    Well Pic1 works for me but the others say Forbidden... I'll see if I can find out why.

    When I did my 3/4 ton axle swap it was pretty easy. The hardest part was removing the factory steering arm. I had to pound the crap out of it with a sledge hammer for ever before it came off. At least I did this while the axle was out of the truck. If it was in the truck I probably would have never got it off.

    Steering arm was easy for me... I was mainly refering to parts not being compatible and just having basic hand tools and that kind of stuff. The swap was pure bolt in for me but it was the preperation of everything as well as the problems I ran into that made this a pain.
