The rocks is a great move. Have you changed the suspension in any way? Think you will have any pan/chunk clearance issues at full stuff?

That is definitely the truth.

The suspension will remain exactly how it was with the stock axles, for leaves the Icon's do pretty well.

There is another F350 (can't think of the thread title offhand) on this board with Rockwells, I'm planning on cutting and plating my engine crossmember like his.

The panhard bar bracket definitely has to go, I'm not sure just yet what I'm going to do for that. With full hyd. steering and leaf springs I don't know that I need one. Older leaf sprung trucks never had them but if anyone has insight I would appreciate it.

what i understood was the panhard on leaf sprung fords was to assist with stability while towing. i could be wrong though.

I am going on memory here, but didn't dusty (kodiakdodge) run his steer axle backwards so the hydro was in the back? Seemed to make sense to me.

I haven't seen it first hand but I wouldn't mind stealing a few of his ideas.

Uh, weird. I lived directly next to him. One driveway before his. Grew up around Josh and Justin.

Got my wheel shells a couple days ago. Hopefully I'll have centers in a week or two. Just waiting on another member to get me a final quote on shipping so I can send him money.

I finally got some time to work on my truck this weekend. My daughter was diagnosed with Kawasaki disease late December and spent ten days in the hospital. All echocardiograms have gone well with no signs of damage to her heart.

Truck progress for now.

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. We had never heard of KD three months ago, now I know more than I'd like to.

The tires are supposed to be 52" tall, I haven't measured them since mounting.

I love it up here, not the biggest fan of Anchorage though. I'd like to move back to my hometown (Glennallen) but there's no real economy and good jobs are very hard to come by.

Sorry to hear about the daughters health concerns. Build is looking good and the Alaska pics have been kick ass.

On a technical note I could use a few opinions from the modular crowd. I am going to have a set of cams custom ground for my truck. There is literally ZERO information on the modular V10 regarding grinds other than stock. My heads are going to be ported the same time the cams are installed. The biggest thing will be reaching the volumetric efficiency limit of the intake manifold. Which on a Ford V10 is pretty low to boost towing torque. Also there is a balancing shaft in the heads and I can't find anyone spinning them higher than about 5200.

Specs for people who don't actually read the whole thread:

Rockwells
52" R1's
Automatic
2V Modular V10
7K lbs
Most RPM use is between 3000-5200.
Never street driven.
90 octane fuel is all that's readily available.

Worked perfect. I built a jig and had all four done in just a couple hours. Thanks again.

Did some work this weekend. Got my axles assembled and the truck sitting on it's own weight. I have a lot of work ahead of me but it's getting closer.
