If you are still looking for an axle, I still have that D60 kingpin and I am now selling a Hobart Handler 175.....PM me if you want to look into throwing all this on a pallet and shipping.....should run about 100-250 shipping though.

a little bit of progress besides moving the truck into the driveway.... had a little time before work so i decided the truck needed a facelift, pulled apart the front clip. cleaned everything, put my stock orange corners on cause my clears are shattered. then took and painted the grill gloss black (trying a new look out).. i like it so far,

Got the right side done today, took the overload out of the packs... cut off leaf hanger and moved it forward. welded it in.. im using E6011 electrodes... no 6011 doesnt lay the prettiest beads, but damm are they strong, i mean ridiculously strong!! then threw some black paint on em. im doing little chunks each day, taking my time and focusing on doing it right. i have already learned from my mistakes on the first SAS not to half **** things and take my time... i know it will pay off and the final product will be awesome!

swap came out pretty good. however i lost a little bit of height. as in only 3 inches of lift totalish in the rear.. so we will see how that turns out after the body lift is off... i have a couple pics of trucks that im modeling mine after..

maybe sometime a little like this..??
