They flat bed is on it now and thanks for all the comments.
If you guys didnt notice we got rid off the front blocks and made shackles for the rear then dropped the front x member for the leafs. And got heims for the steering now.

Well done! It just screams for a front bumper though. IMO the front looks naked without it.

Where did you find that drive flange for the external hub?

Is the tie-rod bent? It looks a bit tweeked, but it may be the pics.

We may do a front bumper but not any time soon we got way to much stuff going right now my truck my brothers cummins and my dads new cummins then just stuff around the house i dont have time.
The tie rod is bent the drag link is not bent. we do have 2 more heims for the tie rod also just have to make it.
ZainyD the drive flanges are just stock ford we have two off them one on the truck and one spare in the barn.
Theres not much flex in the rear so nothing to worry about.
I dont think we are going to put much more time into this truck its way to heavy and under powered.
Were actually looking for a ranger to do a sas and make it a mud truck.
