|87YJWrangler||Oh didnt see that its pretty bad ass set up dude|

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

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?

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.

(pays to have patience and friends that'll help you look )

|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 09:48 PM|
|Optiskate||Thats a crazy deal on the front 60. I wish I could find one that cheap to go along with my 60 rear.|
|11-12-2008 06:30 PM|
|GrnTJ||My bad, for $200 Id deff. go that route too. Way better than the price you see on Ford 60's.|
|11-12-2008 03:57 PM|
|rketr||(especially in a couple years when I finally convince the wife to let me drop a LS3 under it )|
|11-12-2008 03:21 PM|
|Scout||Super nice! That thing is going to be a beast when the front is complete.|

|4point||Wow, that is sweet! keep us posted.|
|11-12-2008 09:11 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 09:07 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!|
|11-12-2008 08:30 AM|
|Optiskate||Looks good. That thing looks like its going to be tall though. Cant wait to see the front end progress. What do you plan on doing with the front? What year HP 60 are you running, assuming your running a ford and not some aftermarket center. How wide WMS to WMS?|

Zip Ties = 11th hour, exhausted, outta beer, and just wanna get the day over
(of course they are only temporary)
|11-12-2008 12:51 AM|
|distortedtj||zip ties = the new bailer twine|
|11-12-2008 12:46 AM|
Hellz yeah! I'm just a little worried about them wheels getting a ding in them. Also... is your res held in there with zip ties?
|11-12-2008 12:41 AM|
|11-12-2008 12:37 AM|
Crap that reminded me! Also did a genright comp tank and a 6" stretch in the rear.
Shooting for a WB of 103" (to include a front stretch of 3").
Front will be D60 with 5.38's, Moser alloys, Ox, EMS Offroad hub disconnects, hydro assist, tubed fenders, led's, and 16" coilovers.
|11-12-2008 12:32 AM|
Lookin good my friend. What's in play for the front? HP60?
What is your wheelbase going to end up at wen it's all said and done?
|11-12-2008 12:31 AM|
|distortedtj||Looks good. Now on to the FRONT!!|
