remove shock mount
remove leaf spring mount.... (what a bitch!!!) I HATE YOU!!
VICTORY!
clean it up with some 100 grit sanding disks
this makes it pretty, and as far as im concerned ready for paint, rather weld thru.

Gona be sweet, looks nice. good work for one day. is the f350 a sterling 10.25 or a d60? I think they are 10.25 for that year?

I wish I had a rig to just build up and not have to dd.

That's looking good so far. Nice work. What front axle do you intend to use?

Sorry to hear about your uncle, I wish him a fast and full recovery. Did you/ are narrowing the axle or does it fit and not stick out too far? I am about to pick up a D-60 out of the bone yard, and did not know how much work to make it fit.

ready for install... all brake related things will be painted red, so when there is a problem it will be easy to trace visually.

to answer you question, i will be putting a d60 highboy in the front, have a lead on 2 of them maybe have to pick up both for the next jeep after this one. they are really hard to find i been looking for months.

no i did not narrow them gonna run full width. they are only a few inches wider, not really a big deal.... i live alaska... the cops are pretty cool about not giving a hard time on badass jeeps.... junkers they dont like. plus i will be stretching it to a 100 inch wheelbase.

Are you talking about a 78-79 high pinion D60 from a Ford? If so, yeah, they're a bit tough to locate.
