Need to update this:

I've added 4.7 transfer case gears
Sliders
63" Chevy springs in the rear
Trail gear low profile front bumper

Working on:
Dual cases
RUF (rear springs up front) building the packs right now.
Maybe some 4:88 gears doubt it though.

I guess that makes sense. I need to get to the junkyard and pick up some F-150s pretty quick. I'm going to hunt for the 2 1/2" leafs so as to not have to do a lot of extra work mounting them and they are supposed to be more flexible.

Did you do anything for your drive shaft?

Not yet see what it does then go from there. That same place we got my dads springs from is the place to go for sure.

Yeah, I probably see if you want to go over there some time towards the end of the month. I'll buy lunch.

Some Updates

Before the 63'' springs



I installed 63'' Chevy springs in the rear and swapped the longer shackles I had in the front to the rear and moved those up front flexes nicely now

Looking at 4:88 but may just stick with 4:10 for $$ sake.

Went out to a huge offroad park this past weekend and while it did great, a locker for the front would have made it 100 times easier. The only thing was my ground clearance of some of the large rock faces, I crushed the gas tank skid pretty good. Looking into building one out of plate, and making my own diff armor.

If the skid can be beat back into shape, you could weld some angle to the bottom of it and beef up the brackets. I will probably go this route. I have not slammed mine yet luckily.

Nice work on the suspension. Are your shocks on the stock mounts?

In the rear I used 73-87 chevy truck ubolts and plates for a flip kit and I welded the shock mounts to the axle, but up top they are in the stock locations. Up front I've got about 12-14" shocks on shock hoops.

Well a couple updates:


Put on the 35's my dad previously had on his 85 since he upgraded to 37's. Also added dual cases with the sky crossmember. 4.70 in one and 2.28 in the other, it crawls right up things now Also finally put the bumper on the back, it's a work in progress, but is very stout.
