Thanks for the reply, I just read this article http://axleboy.com/community/forum/f...w-pinion-axles
and from what it says with a LP the gears will be able to take more abuse, but with a HP you will get a better drive shaft angle.
That was all needed to hear I'm going to go pick it up this weekend and start ripping it apart, once I get the axle 1/2-3/4 of the way done I'll start on the truck.
I have a pretty good arsenal of tools the major thing I'm missing thought is a welder and I'm not really sure what to get. If I had the money I'd go get a miller but I'm pretty much working on a budget here. I know I want a mig that uses gas from what I've read before but not sure on what power ratings would be sufficient for doing welds to the frame.
I've been looking at the 2 from harbor freight would either one do? or would the 120amp be cutting it close in the power department \.
