It started out Jan 09 when I bought it. It went from stock and 35's to 6" and 35's to 6" and 38's and now to 10.5" and 38's in the works with a 78 D-44 HP. They will be loaded with 4.88's and a Aussie locker and a lincoln locker 8.8 out back.

So here is some start to now pics. Will post more as it comes along.

First rear bumper


cash for clunkers front and rear bumpers







6" and 35's









Homemade Cross Member









AAL install











6" and 38's



















The new tail gate



now the shackle flip

stock spring, shackle flip,1" AAL, and a 3" Block = 8.5"















D-44 parts

I have the gears, springs, locker, seals, bushings, and the DOM and Heims to extend the Radius Arms. This will come when I have the time at home to start and finish it.

Cool build.
on the rear take some 3x6x1/4 and build a block-perch
you can drill the hole where you need it

well I have to buy a F-350 drag link tomorrow, build the track bar and mounts and have brake lines made. Here it is on her own weight and the boggers. and for some reason i had to drill the spring cups out because the hole did not match up but its together now. this puts the bottom of the fenders at 32" from the ground.
