    Would like to sell this in as few chunks as possible, or will consider selling complete minus the wrecker mast/components for $4000. Will start the teardown June 22nd if it doesn't sell complete. Currently runs/drives, but not road ready. Would consider a trade for a tractor with front loader/backhoe.

    Located in Brownwood Texas, 76801. I regularly travel to Dallas Texas.

    K30 crew cab
    Isuzu 4bd1t engine (similar to Cummins 4bt) with adapter plate
    th400 trans
    np205 tcase
    D60 front D70hd rear with 4.10 gears

    Suspension:
    Front has 56" springs from the rear of a 3/4 ton truck with a heavier weight rating, 7" shackles.
    Rear is 64" springs from a 2000's era 1 ton cab/chassis with shackle flip.
    Soft, very flexible suspension.
    DIY4X B52 kit up front, rear shackle flip/shackles are ORD 6" rear shackles (not in the pics yet).

    Stock steering design with the 2" lift arm.

    Nearly new painless wiring harness.

    Have 4 spare 16" steel wheels and their rings.

    2 bucket seats from a mid 2000's silverado.

    I'm looking for a rear spring hanger front bracket. Would you be willing to pull one?

    Didn't drive much with the new suspension. But the new steering arm was necessary and getting the axle sitting in the correct location helped alot with getting full turning capability side to side.

    Right on!
    I wasn’t looking to spend a pile of money on mine and i’m not worried about huge articulation. I was thinking 4” arm and 52s.

    Its available. No issues driving empty or towing, fluid always looked good. Shifted firm but the gear shifter was sloppy (pretty sure linkage problem but never looked into it).

    Where would the HD be marked?

    Thanks for the quick reply. Like stated above plus should have an hd cast on the bell housing and a thicker flange at the tcase mount surface.

    It is possible for an HD style case to both not be drilled for the 3/8" bolts for the thick converter cover and not have "HD" cast on the bellhousing. Those cases were also used in mid 80's and later 2wd's so they would only be drilled for the tin covers but the bosses for the larger bolts are there. I have also seen HD cases with "37" cast on them instead of "HD".

    That said, the 2nd pic in post #11 might show a boss mid way down the flange. It would need to be cleaned more to know for sure.

    Going off the rear flange I'll say standard housing.
