The front axle is all back together and new seals, bearings, and axle joints. It's good to know that it is reliable again now. I was in one of those grooves and didn't even think to take any pictures, so sorry about that.
The 4wd works good, and I got to test out the new tires in the sand, they are better for sure.
The only problem is when you stop, you better let off the gas or you will dig holes really quick.
Anyway, have a good night everybody!

[QUOTE=fordaholic495;2840210]We didn't have school today, so i started cleaning parts in prep for paint. Valve covers, oil pan, and water pump are all going to be repainted blue. Intake and fuel pump will stay the way they are. The intake didn't come as clean as i was hoping, but I will continue to work at it. Going to be ordering parts soon!


Simple solution to cleaning comes in a spray can called oven cleaner. sometimes you do it twice and it's almost clean enuf to do surgery on.

Sorry for the highjack, but oven cleaner is one of the best paint removers also, just in case some folks didn't know.

Thanks! I can't even begin to tell you how good it is to hear that thing just run flawlessly. Ever since I have started working on it 2 years ago it never sounded as good as it does now. It is in the best functional shape it has been in over 6-7 years. Might look like a pile of junk to some people, but I have a hard time seeing myself ever parting with it.

Okay I have a question for the more experienced BKO owners.
I am buying a B&M Transpak, and I was wondering what "setting", (for lack of a better word) would be the best for mostly offroad. I know there is the towing setting, which is what I will use, but I think there is more aggresive stages to it. I was thinking that since the fullsizes are bigger and heavier, a more aggresive setting would probably be better. Any info is greatly appreciated! Thanks guys

I would only recommend the stage 3 shift kit for rock jumping and dirt slinging. The C-6 is as stout as they come and a rebuild with HD internals will make it last a lot longer.

Got the rest of one of my bday presents today!
I'm sure you can figure out what it is for. I did need them, but I have to figure out what to do about mounting them, since the PO welded the old ones on.
Anyway here ya go!



Pretty beefy frames too!

That's a good point!
If you can't see some sort of blood on my hand, then it is probably covered in dirt, oil, grease, fluids, etc.. wouldn't have it any other way!

I finally have an update!
I have been doing little things here and there lately, but we are planning to do the exhaust on saturday!
Anyway, I put my new mirrors on today, but I had to change the driver-side door since the old one was really rusty where i mount the mirror. Luckily we had a red door here! It has a dent in it but it is still better than all the rust on the other one. I love that my dad saves things like this
So I got that changed and got my mirrors mounted, for some reason the passenger side bracket ended up at a different angle than the drivers side. Oh well, not a big deal.
I also changed the rag joint on the steering shaft with one my dad had around.
The old one was shot.
Some before and after shots of my work today. Thanks for sticking with me through this guys!
