Front half of 2002 Excursion Frame 300 bucks!

I used all the suspension and steering components. Leaf springs from the excursion work out pretty good. Dana 50 is strong enough for me.

I assume i'm forgetting something, but this was close to everything. Stock front axle had terminal issues, and I didn't feel like putting another beam axle in it. Nothing was a huge upgrade, but I like the straight axle alot
