Not to piss in your oatmeal, but why? you have a semi capable rig. you want to shorten the box and do an axle swap. do it to the one with the x-cab and sell the other one when done. Cool objective. bad plan.

SAS, don't need nor want a front diff. Ever see a divorced transfer case? you can then chose what drop you want if you find a chev/dodge d60. I am an expert on not finishing stuff, yes, but just tossing in my pennies. I'm not putting a riffle to his head and saying do it my way, I'm jujst calling on my vast experience as an incompleter that there could be a better way.

P.S. my suburban was a 2wd when I got it. Actually made the swapping easier.

i hear what ur sayin......cool burban n thanx for the input!!!!!


but the motor no good on white truck...........


.
.
.
.
.
..
.
thaught this build and what i want threw and threw
,,,,,, did alot of lookin and decidin on what i want...
.
.
.i dont really wanna cut up my red truck... it does seem like waste...
.
.was just gonna do the sas on the white truck but the motor no goood and 2wd...
..

..
.
.
.

.
.
..
..
sooo.
.

.
.after alot of thaught
.
.
.
.
.
..
gonna put the white ford body on my 78 bronco instead!!!!!!

already solid axle v8 with decent hp and a way easier swap itll have

the 38.5 TSLs will be even a lil shorter than on my red truck...

will be an easier swap for the cab.... and can put fuel injection on it...
doin a few more measurements but i think it will work..
. bronco body is shot.........
.
dont want the length of the white truck or have to put a new engine etc in it so i think this may be my cheapiest easiest option that will give me what i want.....
.
.a fun wheeler i can toss the fam in........now it just got bigger n faster hahahahaah
.

.
.pixx a commin.
