Looking forward to keeping up with this thread, very similar to what I'm doing to mine soon.

Been a minute since I've updated, but been back at it the past couple months.

Got tranny and T-case pulled out, and degreased and cleaned up nice. Got a corvette servo ready to get installed in it.

Front end all tore down to give me plenty of room for the SFA swap.

Also did a couple little random things like blue LED guage cluster lights, and automatic headlght override/ DRL disable

Got my donor vehicle for my Dana 44s, sacrificed a Wagoneer.

Pulled out front axle, steering setup, and leaf springs

Pulled rear axle


Gave my buddy the rest of the Wagoneer so he has a spare engine for his AMC Matador

Got leafs, shocks and panhard bar off the front axle, and the axle all cleaned up and degreased.


Front leafs were actually rotted out, so I decided to go higher...

Ordered Rusty's FSJ 4 inch lift springs for the front.
Leaf spring perches, brackets, and shackle hangers on the way from Ruffstuff.
Bought 2x4x rectangular tubing and inch plate from a local metal shop for my front hanger and my outriggers to mount my shackle hangers.

If everything comes in by Friday, I'll be getting the front axle mounted over the weekend!

Thanks man, unfortunately it'll probably never get hooked to an engine dyno, just a wheel dyno eventually...So I'll only know what it puts down to the wheels

looked at the package tracking, and my order from Ruffstuff wont be in until Monday, so unfortunately i wont be able to install the front axle until next weekend...

However, my front leafs came in today, so i sanded them down and gave them a couple coats of epoxy sealer to keep them rust free and looking nice for as long as possible.

I also drilled out the U-bolt plates for the larger U-bolts I got. Glass bead blasted the hell out of them to get the rust off, and sealed and painted them red to throw a little contrast underneath the truck.(will also be doing the diff covers once i get new ones, and all of my steering components red) going a little overboard, considering shes gonna do some heavy offroading, but hey....nothing exceeds like excess
