It was rotted bad, there were a couple 1-1.5 foot sections of the frame that were completely missing from rust...I'm honestly surprised it made the 3 hour tow on a car dolly lol. Only good body panel was the hood

My buddy I gave it to is gonna save the engine and sell the rest of the parts off it.

Shipment came in today! Got everything I need for the front axle install (and some for the rear) so everything is a go for getting the front end in this weekend. Feel like a kid on Christmas lol.

I decided to go with at least 37s maybe 38s now, I'm sure I'll have to do chromoly shafts eventually, but I'll see how the factory ones hold up for now.

Also found a pair of flat top knuckles already machined for crossover steering for 150 locally, so hopefully I can scoop those up this week before someone else does...Cause that's a pretty sweet deal in my book

Will have updates over the weekend as I go through the swap process

Who makes those knuckles? You are going to have to buy high steer arms from whoever the knuckles are machined by with them having the key machined in them.

Ahh, I honestly didn't even consider that. I'll have to do some digging and hopefully be able to come up with something..

Thanks for the heads up, saved me alot of confusion later on.

No problem! Make sure you get the correct arms or you will %100 shear the bolts and the worst possible time.
