Sadly no.

Doubler still sitting on ground ready to go in.

Still have to box frame and modify the radius arm mounts...before doubler can go in.

And Im trying to get front axle apart rite now so Mac can machine and tap my knuckles for the high steer arms. Problem is I have spent two full days trying to get the dam lockouts out and they are seized inside the rotor hub. I tried heat with no luck and started drilling and chiseling them out and so far only have about 1/3 of the outer hub of the lockout removed.

Im trying not to wreck the hub that presses on the rotor because they are 100 each to replace.But the longer I mess with it getting nowhere the more I want to just torch everything off!!


Since I been layed off the last two weeks Im goin to run out of money before I get it finished.

Oh yeah. Doubler is in and I made a crossmember for it. Today Im starting to build my new trans crossmember also.

Front axle is out again and on the bench. Had the knuckles machined and tapped for hi steer arms,new seals in housing and every part of front axle has been sandblasted and painted. Waiting on my Spicer ball joints to show up then I can finish putting the d44 together.

Im off this whole week so I plan to knock out some major stuff

Well the front axle is finish except for my lockouts. Im goin to get truck up and running with some drive flanges but plan to get some Warn hubs and the RCV 30 spline adapters later.

I replaced every bearing,seal,brake parts,ball joints{moog} and installed my RCV shafts.



Should be back under truck this weekend and hopefully start on the steering.

Been busy since my last update but things are moving along. Im currently waiting on my order from RuffStuff to show up with all my steering parts.

Front axle is back under truck and the high steer arms are on and I put some limiting straps on.



I also finally got all my shifters in.Handles all finished up as well.

Still waiting on a boot tho. The doubler is push down/pull up operation so I used a rubber firewall grommet as the boot/seal.
Next I needed to mount my Hurst Pistol grip shifter for the C4 trans.I wanted it raised up off the floor so it was in a easy to reach position so I built a 5" tall stand to mount it to.

Then I drilled holes in floor and welded in nuts to bolt it down. Covered it in some aluminum to finish it off.



I left the ends of the stand open so I can run all my wiring through it to hide since my fuse block and relays are mounted behind the seat. I also got rid of the reverse lock out on the shifter so it only locks out Park now and I modified the shift plate so it can be shifted from forward gears to reverse in one quick action.
