Got more tacked in
Here's where I'm a tonight. I don't have 220v out in the garage so I need to make an adapter so I can plug the miller into my generator so I can finish the welding. I just used the 110 setting for the tacking.
The trade for the aluminum heads for the F350 frame on the Dana 60's looks promising. Found out tonight that it comes with some pretty good rollers.

12oz for scale*
There I fixed it.

This is where I'm at tonight
Wasn't going too but I cut and got things tacked in, I'm happy with the tolerance. 1/16". Attachment 1718946

Bought some steel
This is what I'm thinking, the 2 pieces on top will be cut at a 45 and will be gussets along with another going right to left under the tail gate.

|daddyjeep||I like that. It blends the old and new together nicely.|

Cut these to reinforce the stretch. I said I was going to reuse the stock bumper, Not, to much weld, I'll buy new steel this weekend.
I got a deal in the works, trading my aluminum heads for a '94 F350 frame on dana 60 axles. This is cool, I don't need the heads until I build the 383. I do need the front dana 60. I'll sell the frame and rear 60.

|Scooby88||Look what showed up today! Going to keep working on the rear, plan on dropping the transfer case over the holiday break. My last day of work is Dec.16th should be able to get a lot done.|

|Scooby88||Did some cutting and tacking this afternoon, I like it! I need to cut the bumper off the pieces of frame removed, it seems pretty stout so I'll reuse it.|

Just like it says...ordered it tonight. Ended up buying it from Summit...Free shipping made it the best deal. Also picked up the steel for the stretching of the rear.
Busy as hell at work but my last day of the year is the 17th, should get some stuff done!

|Scooby88||Oh yeah! I see my build hit 30,000 hits. That's cool, I hope I'm helping someone or giving others ideas.|

|daddyjeep||I like it when guys aren't scared to cut up the frame. Keep up the good work.|

Thinking too much
Another change in plans, I was just going to weld onto the rear bumper and add the spring perches but I think that would look like a hack job. Sooo I ordered steel today so I will cut and add to the frame, I think it will look better and be stronger.
It will stretch the frame 11" and move the axle back 9". Here's a shot simulating what the stretch will look like.

|Scooby88||Got these made, not going to brag about the welds. Still getting the feel of the new welder with this auto set.|

|Scooby88||Here's where I'm at now with the leaf spring mounts, added a grease zerk, cutting the 2"x 4" in half.|
|11-26-2014 09:19 PM|
|Scooby88||I'll post my new plans in the dash, working on the leaf spring mounts tonight.|

I was thinking something like this on the new dash mold. These guys get $400 for these. I would do Rounded pods for Gage's and switches, and a spot for a CB.
Off the top of my head, I would need $275-300 to make it worth my time. What do you guys think?

Dash round 2
Any suggestions for changes would be considered.

|cdavis0993||Scoob this has been an awesome thread. I am currently building as 95. Putting a 350 and 700r4 in it. I would love to talk about a dash like yours for mine.|

|Scooby88||Sorry, haven't ordered the sye yet. Chainsaw took a crap so I had to buy another one, got a good deal on a homelite from the 70's and this thing rips! (Loud as hell) the guy had another old small homelite that I just have to have that I pick up Saturday, it's getting cold up here and I heat the garage with wood plus I sell it.|

|daddyjeep||That's the problem when your Jeep gets bigger. I've run into that problem a few times myself.|

|Scooby88||Built one of these, 3 to go.|
