Nah it will happen, but still collecting a few quite expensive pieces that will keep me from doing some things twice. Rather do it all once and call it done

He is doing the opposite way that I did. I had 95% of all my parts for my 85 before i even bought the truck.

Just keep collecting your parts, build your driveshafts once and post a pic every now and then to appease people skimming over your thread

Exactly. Another thing that's really what's holding me up the most is lack of work space.. I'm in a little single car garage now and I can't afford to park my truck and rear it apart for weeks or a month at a time cause I use that space for a lot of others trucks as well.. But hopefully around the first of the year I'll be getting the new shop built and ill have 5x the space I'm working out of now so I'm just being patient and trying to save up for everything I want to do the first time rather than doing things twice

Subbed. You should be able to knock this out quick if you're getting all you parts before you start

Well I finally have a few updates.

Got around to some slow time and pulled the axle apart to find some unwanted news.. fluids had been drained (no big deal) but the guy who had it before me had it stored outside apparently and first clue I found was some rust splotches on the axle shafts as well as water beads so I got the 3rd out and its rusted up pretty solid..

So.... I got the housing all shined up and clean, cut the old TG truss that was crooked as hell on the axle off an found a new 3rd with already installed 4:88's for $250 from Rustys R&P. Picked it up and finished cleaning the knuckles and birfs and found all the kings and seals, felts, tie rod ends, ubolt flip, spare brake lines etc locally as an overstock so going to pick all that up soon as well and hopefully get a new sheet of plate to get a new truss built.

Still planning to be leaf sprung for now and will likely run glass front shaft for a little while as I wait on the taco box to get here ( no point I doing shafts twice )... but hopefully wont be too far down the road.

As of now only things I need to start cutting are the pwr steering hose conversion, steering shaft, rear 4:88 R&P, most likely new pwr steering pump but not needed right away.

anyway heres a few pics

Thanks man nothing yet, still waiting on a piece of plate to build the truss then honestly trying my hardest to also wait to just 3 link from the get go but im ancy so it will probably end up leaf sprung. have started selling 4wd parts though, just waiting on a decent job to help fund it. Also having to get a new tube bender so that take a good chunk out of my taco box fund

Well I finally took the plunge and started cutting.

Plan was to start Monday but unbolting IFS components Friday led to another and well the ifs fell off this afternoon after my plasma decided to take a shit so I had to use cutoff wheels

Anyway, All ifs components and brackets have been removed along with the radiator. Swapped oil pans and pickup tubes and got the axle 2/3 the way assembled. Grinding day is tomorrow and will hopefully get all the excess junk off the frame and cleaned up and start tacking hangers up and into place.

Few pics

Whats crazy is I don't even touch mud! only mud it sees is what may be collected in a rock garden or a small puddle on a trail.. I avoid any mud at all costs if possible! but once im done I plan to take a pressure washer to it.. hoping to finish up sometime mid next week, have to wait on Praxair to open so I can get some more gas and other random items and wont be till Tuesday that my other parts needed to finish come in. I added it up on page one and im at $3700 so far and projected to be around $4500 once complete. not including the crawl box... Im still planning to get that from you guys sometime hopefully sooner than later!

Surely will! Still waiting on gears for the rear then ill throw the front shaft in place one they are here so im not tempted.. but I have some trips planned in the near future.

Had a short day today
Got the passenger frame rail cleaned, body mount cut and jig in place, front crossmember and frame notched for the front hangers around 1" into the frame and most of the passenger frame rail clean.. No plasma so cutting the coil bucket is taking its toll with a cutoff wheel but once that sides done it should be pretty smooth sailing.. I hope.
