Front axle is out, old spring hangers are off, gears and spools showed up, install kits bought. Need to get kingpin kits, other then that I think I have all the odds and ends to get the front axle installed again.

Shhhh.... Im learning too much as I go.
Leaf springs were turning into a PITA, had to put the perches partially on the frame in the rear, then the hangers half way outside in the frame at the front, reinforce it all and then not get the axle located where I wanted it, then, eventually wanting to do links anyway... well, why wait to upgrade? This way I can locate the axle so the tires wont come into the cab... Better articulation, better ride, you get the idea...
Now, do I want to do a set of ZJ coils, or, do I want to go coilovers?

I'm leaning to coil overs... Don't want to overwork airs hocks If I start racing...

until I can get the motor in, and all the small stuff like shifters and what not (this is getting expensive) and have a budget, though, I will be watching creepies thread, and others, for sale items.

This build will not take as long as creepy or roger. It will be wheeling by next summer.
Although i know how guys get these never ending builds now
Its going to have one heck of a long wheel base for a while, but, a flat belly and a good skid will be installed too.

This is true swapping axles wasn't supposed to take so long.
I need to take it home so I can work on it more anyway... Just won't be inside.
