Thanks 69SCJ, There wasnt any mounting hardware on mine, and it seams pretty sturdy so far.

And Colobronco, "Cage" is out of business, but the man that designed both James Duff's RA's and Cage's RA's is now starting a new company "Bloody Knuckle Garage". He's a good friend of mine and a great guy to deal with.

here's Bloody Knuckle Garages facebook, he's working on getting a website up. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bloody-Knuckle-Garage/193553130690954?ref=ts

yeah I have a design in my head, its pretty similar to triplesix's bumpers. plate center w/ winch mount and lights and tube outers. I'm also going to build some rock sliders, and a cage sometime soon.:thumbup

Well not much of an update, but an update none the less.

My progress has been slow lately, mostly because my "dana 60" turned out to be a "dana 50" when I pulled a shaft :banghead So I ended up getting a good deal on an actual D60 and I've been prepping it for the swap.

My dad (archer66) decided he's finally going to coilovers on his front end, so I'm snagging his Cage dual shock hoop, coils, coil buckets and shocks. And Jim finished up my RA's so basically im waiting on powdercoat to start the swap :rockon

Thanks :beer

Ive slowly been making progress on it this week, just cleaning/painting axles etc. And I got the shock hoops mounted, ended up trimming the inner fenders around them instead of removing them. Trying to keep my engine bay somewhat clean after wheeling :whiteflag

I got the Bronco in the shop and yanked the old D44 out, and mounted my shock hoops



I got the Np205 all cleaned up and my new 4 bolt flanges on.



My Dana 60 is finally ready to go under the truck and weld on my radius arm mounts



You may have noticed the lack of brakes, well I'm digging through all my extra calipers to make a couple good ones, and putting new seals in them.



Got brakes? :toothless
