Thought i would throw up some pics of my truck before i do to many changes too it, :D so far all i have really done in these pics is cut and bash front wheel wells to fit 31's under. installed some stereo and CB radio.

But today and tomorrow im installing new sheet metal on passanger side to fix rust on ext cab bottom. then rocker guarding the truck to the red trim line. installing a 3" boddy lift and hopefully starting to build the new bumpers and tire holding tailgate. Ill post pics as i go with these mods

that truck is seriously too clean, looks nice, other than the 93 grill doesnt go with any of it, you should match it up, and screw the body lift, Sas that bitch with some 35s, you'll be alot happier :D i know i was.... and am.

Is that because no other manufacturers use D60 front ends, or because Ford owns DANA/SPICER?

well if i keep the tranny i have now and get a divoreced tcase then i can use a chevy d60. or if i put in full 1 ton tranny and tcase then same axle will work. otherwise ill need to re work the frame mounts and go from there

u need the hp60 because your driverside drop tcase unless you were to swap a pass side drop tcase into your truck then you could run a chevy d60 or dodge d60
