Nothing new. Burnt a few weekends in early November to get it that far. Wife requested I hold off thru the holidays. Spending the time right now getting my ducks in a row so I'll have all the right parts, measurements, etc. when I can get back under there (is taking forever since it is just me doin all the work).

Also completing my checklist spreadsheet to help ensure I don't miss anything. Will post the spreadsheet later if anybody is interested. It details everything and includes: suspension, body work, plumbing, axle work, electrical, etc (with related part numbers, etc from just about every vendor).

If anything it's been a fun project so far. I'm a computer guy by trade and have had to do massive amounts of learning to figure out everything from the cutting to the welding to the suspension geometry to freakin everything else

Will be nice when its done

mknight759 looks like you have started on something serious
11-13-2008 11:36 AM
rketr From what I've been told full hydro isn't legal here in TX (as far as being street worthy) so since one of the goals is keeping it streetable (yes, I want to drive it to my office ) I'm planning on doing a hydro assist.

To that, anybody have tips or links on howto?

Sure it's going to be taller going from what looks like 35's to 41's.


Love to see the good builds my rketr. My 60 install has recently taken an interesting spin also. Guy now wants to trade me the stock width Currie Rock Jock for a 64" Dynatrac Trail Series. Oh the choices. With yours hell for the price I don't think you are going to notice much of a difference between ball joint and kingpin. Are you going to go full hydro or work with the stock setup awhile? That's the biggest thing I think I've seen between the two. Full hydro seems to wear out ball joints at a much faster rate than kingpins.

*hehehe* The 14 Bolt rear was a better deal... = free

(pays to have patience and friends that'll help you look )
11-13-2008 12:13 AM
GrnTJ Then you should live in MI, lol. I see so many good deals every single day here. I agree, its a pretty good deal but big axles go for super cheap all the time around here. Its a little rediculous really.

11-12-2008 07:30 PM
GrnTJ My bad, for $200 Id deff. go that route too. Way better than the price you see on Ford 60's.

rketr (especially in a couple years when I finally convince the wife to let me drop a LS3 under it )
11-12-2008 04:21 PM
Scout Super nice! That thing is going to be a beast when the front is complete.
11-12-2008 03:53 PM

4point Wow, that is sweet! keep us posted.
11-12-2008 10:11 AM
rketr Actually the D60 is from a '94 Dodge Ram 2500. Not a HP or kingpin, but for $200 bux I couldn't pass it up!
11-12-2008 10:07 AM
GrnTJ He will probably run a king pin 60 from a ford since its high pinion, '78-'79 Id guess. I believe the wms is about 65"-67" but cant remember for sure. Sweet build, its lookin good!

rketr Zip Ties = 11th hour, exhausted, outta beer, and just wanna get the day over

11-12-2008 01:51 AM
