Thanks, it is nice, or should I say purpose built. But I'm looking for something a little different.

Pics are posted in gallery:







These pics don't show the newer roll cage mounted speakers.

I also have a set of D44 axles from a J10, not sure of the gearing and they are not flat top knuckles. And a spare D300 t-case, and I'll even throw in a CJ drum braked CJ Dana 30 front axle.

It's a low pinion D44 from an early bronco. It has cut down F250 axle shafts that are no necked down, with solid Spicer u-joint. The diff cover is the thicker F250 cover which has a welded on reinforcement for the ring gear.

The rear Ford 9" is trussed and skid plated.

is this thing road worthy? by that I mean could i drive it around town nd to work if need be?

Yes. Plus with the shackle reversal it actually tracks quite nicely. And the extended wheelbase also helps the ride. Plus you really can't beat an SOA set versus the same amount of lift from an SUA for on street ride quaility.

It'll do 60-65 mph on the highway just fine. There tranny is only a four speed. Lots of times, I usually start it out in 2nd cuz the first gear is almost useless on the street.

It's got all the turn signals, but is missing the rear side markers. Oh, forgot, the horn doesn't work.
