    Yep closer and closer.

    Should be ordering springs next week. I have to find time to get up to CT to go pick up my steering kit from a buddy.

    Had a discussion with my buddy that's helping me weld. Might get the perches welded on either Columbus day weekend or veterans day weekend.

    I have the ball joints, rotors in the garage. Arb HD airline kit should be arriving today, and ordered u joints for the axles shafts today so progress is being made

    ARB HD line kit arrived yesterday. Didn't get a chance to check it out since I got home so late.

    But the 2nd to last major piece for the swap is inbound!

    Well I got the air locker for a steal to start. And i dont think they make an OX for the h233b so I like to stay consistent.

    Why an OX if you already have the switches and air line run for an ARB?

    Gathered all of the parts I have in the garage together (and cleaned it) to begin reassembly tomorrow.

    First thing is to go get a 1/4 NPT tap to do the bulkhead fitting.... IMG_20190824_154803_806.jpg

    Jumped right in this morning and drilled and tapped the hole for the arb fitting. Also took that stupid bracket off the axle.


    Took all the hub parts out and took inventory of what I had since this stuff has been on a shelf for the past year. Dropping then off at a friends to get all the old grease out of them.

    And then threw on a coat of rattle can paint.

    So I was planning on taking apart the ifs this weekend buttttt....

    I did pros and cons, I realize i won't have money to regear the rear until dec or tax return time.

    In that time obviously the truck would be down. So I'd rather get all my ducks in a row beforehand.

    The day I disassemble the IFS is the day I send the rear out for regear this way everything can go back together in one shot.


    I'd rather do this all once. And the right way
