Gett’n there !

Why D60’s. why not a D44 HP up front ?
Just wondering, not criticizing.

Lockers ?
Again what type ?

Are these axles going to full width ?

Also, like the “EDGE” on the hood.
I will be going flat black sooner or later and was thinking on your “EDGE” design, not sure though.

Like Highroller said the D60 is stronger than the D44 and I got a good deal on it. I could've went with a 44 already built and still had more money left over for other things. But might as well start with the money parts and try to atleast do that right.

The axles will stay full width. I want to do lockers front and rear, probably automatic lockers. Trying to find a rear that's already built and I'm going to make the front match.

Zabeard and NicksterSVT hooked that up on the hood.

I'm dreading it. All I have now is a side grinder, cutoff blades, and a sawzall. Wish I could use the plama from work.

I'll let you know when I get a better idea of what I can do. I'll probably be using leafs to start with and definitely want to go 35 outers in the future.

Most of the passenger side stuff cut off. Should be easier to do my headers now.

How else would you do it?

Nah, I got a yota box. Just haven't cut that part off yet.
