Everything came out great!! The entire install went flawlessly with only two of us working on the truck. The Solid Axle Swap from start to finish took about two solid days and around $2000.

Looks awesome dude! Def TOTM worthy. I think ASwaff is starting that back up in Jan.

Thanks for the comments, FOTM would be sweet ive been on another forum for 4 years and have never even been mentioned. It looks a little different now, i painted the steering and diff cover black, i also moved the power steering cooler to in front of the radiator and just got my reamer to do a TRE flip. I still need to make a new tranny crossmember so my front driveshaft will fit but im not to worried about that yet.

Well, sorry that the other forum didn't take notice of your sweet ride! 4 years huh? Feel free to spend more time here, and let your friends know about us!

I would love to have a NJ crew!

Definitely a sharp looking truck, I love that body style in crew cab. Looks clean!

2 years?! Man I slammed through my whole process of gathering and installing in like 2 months?



I see one thing you may want to address, maybe a hi-steer knuckle to get yourself a more straight angle off your pitman arm, less potential bump steer. Just a thought.

fbm1344t December 7th, 2010 02:20 PM

Thanks your truck is sweet to, i usually dont like that body style but with 1 tons its a different story. Im actually getting ready to address that problem by dong a TRE flip to help correct the angles, but so far i haven't noticed any bumpsteer the way it is now.
