I'm sure a little google searching and you could find it though!
Thanks man I'm trying to get the final details figured out before I start my swap. Im going to look into the switching the yokes because 150 for an adapter seems a bit high.

Yeah 150 is quite a bit to be spending when you can get a whole case for far less than that

I got another little update - I installed the autozone special shackles to the rear of my front leaf pack to get the front end level with the rear. I didn't want to do this because that meant my shackles have to hang down below the frame rails, but I really needed to get my bump stops off the landing pads - which it did. Either way, I like how it sits level now and it rides much better off the bump stops.

To the pics!

are you still running the stock 4.3 in there? if so are you getting enough power out of it? im getting ready to do a sas on a 99 jimmy and dont feel like putting a 350 in it right away.

Still running the stock 4.3 and daily driving it! It has enough power thanks to the 5.13 axle gears, but of course you will always want more. I would think if I ever upgrade the engine the 44 front has got to go

Thanks for the bump. This is true. The progress is very slow though since we've had all that rain and I can't fit the stupid thing in the garage.
.....eventually the rear end will be protected

Me likes both bumpers the rear is coming together nicely. I thik I will have go hit up mr. Crawl when the time comes I think that basic look on the front or the waggy would look good. And I have more o overhang in the rear so some good protection / sliders back there are gonna be a must for me


Hopfully we can wheel together some time this summer, I have seen you run a couple times now and your rig looks and performs well. Keep up the good work man. ( and that goes for mr crawl too)
