Got one steering knuckle painted, the rotors separated from the hub and locking hubs disassembled. The hub lock body's are pretty beat up, I may have to go another route. Longfield makes a conversion gear so you can use your IFS hub locks on a solid axle. My IFS hub locks are in great shape. One spindle is pretty beat up too, I'm debating scraping both of them and getting new ones from Trail-Gear.

I'm doing the steering knuckles in VHT engine enamel paint.

Wow, this little 50 amp Chinese Plasma is bad ass! I just did a couple test cut's. The thickest was only 1/8 but it went through it like a hot knife through butter.

Hopefully between this weekend and next I can get the axle built. After that I'm planning a 3 day weekend for the swap.

So I'm waiting on a pair of brass spindle bushings, once I have them I can assemble the axle.

This is the reason for the new bushing, this spindle was very beat up. Looks like the dumped a wheel bearing at some point and drove on it for a while:



So I'm replacing both parts with these. 4140 chrome moly steel, made in the USA and sold by Trail-Gear.



Big improvement over the beat to shit stock one.

^^^^Lol, not even close. Getting all the parts here was the easy part, time to work on it is the challenge. I'll be lucky if I can touch any truck stuff this month.

I had some unexpected free time today. So I got a little done on the truck.

I painted the pitman arm, shock hoops and high steer arms. Pressure washed the 3rd and got it ready for paint. Drove in new bearing races into the hubs and bolted up the rotors and spacers.





I didn't like the diff armor that came with the kit so I ordered this.



I thought about ordering frame stiffeners too, but I'm just going to cut my own out of 3/16th plate (good excuse to play with the plasma)

Welded the diff armor on today. The sanding dust is from sanding down the skim coat of JB weld I put on the steering balls to correct a little pitting.

The plan is to cut off the IFS next Saturday, wish me luck!
