I had a buddy that worked at livernois make the intermediate shaft for me. Cut the tailshaft off of a garbage automatic trans. He milled it, pressed it together, heated it up, tig welded it and put it in a sand box to cool slowly. Best thing is it was free! Made the plate and followed the instructions from the ranger station and it went together pretty easy.
Installed 4.10 gears in the rear axle, welded the spiders. It may see some around town driving but not much so i went cheap.
Built the y link suspension from 1.75x.25 and 1.5x.25 with 7/8 and 3/4 heims.
Made new lower coil buckets the move the axle forward a few inches and incorporate the lower link mounts.
Made a track bar mount on the axle and frame.
Made the drag link, track bar and tie rod. All out of 1.5x.25 dom with 3/4 heims.
Put F250 shock mounts on frame to fit longer shocks.
It turned out good. Considering i built this truck is less than 3 months total time.
In the last pic you can see the prerunner stance. But not much rub so its not bothering me yet. I can get more pics of track bar brackets and what not if anyone needs them. I also rounded the brackets and links after mock up.
Now pics.
