That looks bad ass to say the least. Wish I could afford to do that.
And how do you like those tires? I considered them since they are fairly priced.

Driving around lately i've been hearing a clunking around when i turn, so i checked it out and its caused by my upper tracbar bolt shifting in the mount. So to fix it, i'm gonna have to weld the washers to the bracket so it can't move anymore. I'll take pics during the process so everyone can see what i'm talking about. Also hopefully i will be making my new tranny crossmember soon so i can hook up the front shaft and finally have 4wd just in time for the snow.

hay Dan, just a thought for ya, if you have'nt decided on what to use for that crossmember
I've used channel iron to make crossmembers, and works well for any offsets

thats a good idea i was thinking of using 2x4 steel with a plate welded off the center with some gussets. Its fairly simple to make and should work flawlessly

that would work good, I like gussets, they give it that beefy look even if not needed

im gettin ready to do the same swap but to a bronco. heres my questions, i wanna make longer radius arms i plan to make latter bars for the rear and longer radius arms to have them both reach to where the cross member is for the tranny, which i plan to remake any ways to give a little drop to the transfer. but what can i make the radius arms out of that will be strong and safe. and is there any way i can make my 92s lift springs for the front work for the 76 straight axle. im also goin to put a 2" leveling kit on it too. cuz on my truck the lifts on now it is 2"s lower in the front then the rear. so i figured maybe i can cut the mmounting plates off the 92 axle and then put 2" of steel under them then weld them all together, will that work. thanks for your help if you can help. if its confusin ask questions and ill answer them lol.

You can extended the factory 76 arms with DOM welded on and wrapped in L channel. The lower coil mounts on the 92 just unbolt, but it would be easier to use some plate with a bolt welded to it so you can use the factory 92 retainers. Its not as hard as it sounds, i can look for some threads on www.fullsizebronco.com that will show how to do the arm extensions and the mounting of 92 coils just give me some time.
Hope this helps!
Merry x-mas everyone!!!!

ok guys so i finally got steel and built my new crossmember (pics coming) which turned out sick. Today i decided to install the front shaft to find out that the 78/79 dana 44 yoke is a different size than the 80-96 yoke. Im debating swapping in the newer style or just finding a conversion u-joint, but either way the rig is one step closer to having all 4 wheels turning.
