Thanks, the 60 wont be going in for about a year. Next step is to lower it (body lift out) and cage it.

Looks good, what leaf springs did you use?? I am doing a similar build. Ive got a 98 Dakota RC, Dana 60 Front and shaved 14 bolt rear. I am 4 linking the rear although I am going to put leaf springs in front until I finish designing the three link.
