    I'm not removing it right now. I am changing the vacuum disconnect to a manual pull cable one and running a mini spool and seeing how that works for now. No reason dodge over ford. Just found the dodge at a good price at the right time. I'm changing the hub over to a manual locking hub so it will be a spindle on reid racing knuckles. No upgraded shaft at this time just getting new replacement since I never had any.

    Alright lol.

    So I got some misinformation about that dodge axle. And the parts I orders wouldn't work. So they refunded my order and had to ship it all back. So then I had an axle that was worthless to my projects.
    Off to Craigslist to find a ford dana 44. Nothing.
    So today I went junkyard digging and found this ford dana 44 high pinion with brakes included. Just has to be rebuilt cause it's a little rusted. And I need to see what's in it but there is some writing on that says posi...
    Tomorrow I'll dig into this axle.

    Meh, the Ford axle is better anyway. High pinion ftw. If it still has it there should be a metal tag under one of the cover bolts. It has a string of letters and numbers on it. That's the contents of the diff. Type, gear ratio, etc.

    Just curious, did you use an online metal distributor or go local?

    Blessing in disguise?

    Not a bad second option. At least they refunded you the Dodge parts.

    Local company I always use.


    Yea it was. Kinda glad now. I got a better axle and it's a hp. And I got money for those wrong parts. Some if it I'm stuck with but that's what Craigslist is for or even pirate

    So a little progress in fab work and prep. Got the shaft tunnel bent and the final clean up of all the old IFS stuff off the frame.
    And then I got more parts order/reordered/returned [emoji53] sort of confusing for even me lol.

    Next week after the baby is born back to work.

    So today I got that cross member put in but I have to wait till tomorrow till I get my new trans mount in to set the it back down. So in mean time I torn into the transfer case and making it easier to work with to make the mount.

    Here's a pic of the cross member holding up the trans and motor. Just needs some clean up and paint but it's good for mock up.

    Next is the tc mount. That one will be fun since that's a big case and it's smaller space towards the back

    Got the rear axle out today and am in the process of putting the 4.08 gears in it along with doing the transfer case mount. Oh and new rims come in on Monday :D

    Yup got the spacer. Had an issue with rear seal being to big so gotta get the right size one before I can see if it works.

    He is waiting on me to install it to make sure it's the right size but once I know he'll know and everyone will know.

    Thanks. It takes a lot of work to get this far.
