More tease, Rear is ready to dry fit. Then weld the mounts solid and wait for calipers.

You caught what Jesse said right? You might want to hold off on fully welding those perched. Your pinion angle will change after a shackle flip.


Have you donated to FordTruckClub.net yet? I have!

Shouldn't be a problem, I have been running 7" arc alcan leafs, no intentions of shackle flipping since that would make it impossible to payload the camper.

But no, thanks for the heads up, I had not heard that.


Let me revise myself, I would still be able to payload the camper, but would have issues getting under it with these springs.

yeah I forgot you had the leaf springs. Hey at least you always leave that option open for going higher later on.

She is ready for the next steps, more final touches are in order.

Need u-bolts, calipers, correct lugnuts, shorten driveline significantly, brake lines assembled, and oil aught'a do the trick for the rear with the final welding and paint.

one heavy SOB for me to lift with my brother, he's always been bigger but I had to wrap the axle with my arms and halfway set it on my gut.

More pics in gallery again.






cant decide on salutations for the attempted service, or the middle finger.

thanks, me too lol even though it has me intimidated, definitely have to move the truck once this rear axle can drive it. no way in hell I'm moving a heavy axle like that again, plus I may have enough problems getting it out now.

I'll look into the password thing, not sure why it asked me to make one when I made that gallery???

Gallery changed, should be viewable. Did a partial hardware run today, for some reason people buy odd numbers of U-bolts so I wound up one short. got the correct lug nuts today, 1 gallon gear oil (oddly think its not enough)

When are you ordering your parts from Jesse. And what have you decided. 4.5" crossmember 4.5-5" front springs plus your 7" rear springs it would sit almost the same as now. Maybe 1-2" higher.
