    88 F250 Diesel Crawler

    Picked up a new truck from a friend at work. 1988 F250 7.3L non turbo diesel, 5 speed. Its a TTB front end truck with a sterling 10.25 rear. I hate TTB with a passion, front right tire is already wearing crazy while the other 3 are perfect. TTB is not worth the effort to keep in good...

    79 ford 150 axle width

    Lug patterns can be changed on the rear without wheel spacers but it would require you to get new shafts made with the bigger axle flange. you could run the front axle full width with a set of high BS wheels to suck the tires under the truck and run a rear Fullsize 8.8 to match lug patterns and...

    straight axle swap

    I know they 70 your refering too. I wouldnt use one because they have very limited ratio's in the HP 70 and they are also $$$$. I can build a d70 for less then buying one of those anyways and use all my 60 parts minus the gears and locker. Im not worried about breaking the 300m RCV shafts...

    straight axle swap

    No such thing, if my front 60 doesnt hold up a custom 70 or 14 bolt front will be my next axle. Plus 14 bolt fronts are the new thing. So a 70 front would be awesome, plus with a simple trim it will have the same clearance as a 60.

    straight axle swap

    Sell it and buy a 60, your way over thinking this. I sold a front Ford 60 2 months ago for $450. They are out there.

    rear dana 35 jeep axle swap questions

    If your paying more then nothing for the D35 your being ripped off. But to answer your question. No it will not bolt into your B2/ranger. The D35 is about the same strength as the Ford 7.5", they have very similar specs. Just pickup a ranger or explorer 8.8. The explorer 8.8 is obviously the...

    Dana 50 ifs from F250

    From reading in that jeep thread it seems they are close in length just the mounting points are different which is why people think it is so much shorter.

    77 F150 D44 and 9" ?

    He likes coils he doesnt like hes stuck with radius arms. the 76-77 axles have removeable wedges. They were just welded on so they are a good axle to use cause of the HP and the suspension options available.

    waggy d44 from leaf sprung to coil sprung?

    Im in the process of using 14" travel Fox 2.0 coilovers with a 86 NT Waggy Axle, with parrallel 3 link. Coils overs will give any amount of lift you want. It comes down to your mounts and coil rates. Im shooting for very low lift which is proving difficult as Im running into clearance...
