it only took a week to do it(2 1/2hrs per morning before work.)everything went well.thought the d/s was short but i pushed it all the way back to get it out of the way and forgot i did it /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gifthe u-joint was a hassle.no conversion joint needed,for some reason.the 3/4t. pinion caps are the same size as the 1/2t. d/s caps /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gifworked out though!i also forgot to grind the calipers to fit the 15in. rims.tried driving it and didn't move.the front u-joints/steering knuckles...whatever need to be replaced and a little more caliper grinding on the drivers side.the rear is a gov-lock.works great.there shouldn't be any problems only running 31's for now,max of 35's w/ 33's and 3in. lift being the final plan.i don't do any wheeling and if i decide to it will only be mild stuff.i bought the truck as a huntin' rig,but decided to upgrade the axels just in case i get more involved in truck building.i get more inspired to do things when i hang out here.i have some questions that i'll post in a minute."axel swap related Q's"...see me there,please.
