It's been a while since I posted in here but thus far I only have the front end done. I took it wheeling a couple days after I got home before I even got the gears and locker in the front which was a pain in the ass btw, and I had to run low range all day just to turn my 31's. When I get home I plan on putting the 8.8 in and running it. Oh and my 1 day of wheeling when I took it out I killed my alternator too lol. And then when I get back from my next deployment I am going to hunt down a dana 44 and a 9" from a first gen bronco. Then the small block build. I still have yet to decide whether I'm going to build a 302 or a 351.
