Bringing this back from the dead. I proceeded to go broke with paying tuition and ran out of time which put this project off into the pickers, literally. Now I have a super expensive piece of paper saying I can put up with a bunch of BS. With that came a decent job in the Madison area so I dragged the turd out of the weeds and am at it again.
D30 was installed minus a trackbar and the 8.8 was were I ran out of money so it never got in. Doesn't matter now.....new plan.
(Don't mind the conduit for mockup)
Approximate specs for the rear. Will be pretty low, which will mean lots of hacking but thats cool.
Front axle, 79 F250 HP D44, has since been stripped.
Start of a flat bottom
Wanting boatsides + wisco rust = hacking
Frame will get platted. Ordered up poly bushings and Trail Gear 1.25" creeper joints for the rear. Lowers will be 2"x0.25" DOM. Front 3 link should remain about the same with the new axle. Am picking up some H2 rims. Stuff's going to start getting naughty once my parts and more metal arrives
