Why go through all that work and use dana 44's? And why lincoln lock the front? That should be a bitch to turn!

the lincoln locked front will only be temporary, its just what came in the axle, I think I'm gonna change it out for a Detroit.

I'm only going with 44's for budget reasons, even though I'll probably spend just as much in parts but I just dont have the upfront cash to throw down right now.

Same goes for why I'm not using propane, even though its only like 800 bucks? I just cant justify the cost right now.

haha the "Bullet Holes" are mostly just points where the stock cage was attached, and also portions that rusted through.
If you look in the first pics you can't see anything but I think I ground off probably a half inch of bondo it was ugly. Most of that stuff will get cut out as I will be enlarging the wheel wells about 3 or 4 inches all around.

I might lengthen the wheelbase a little, maybe 3 or 4 inches just for tire fitment reasons, theres some structural support on the body in the front of the wheel well that I dont want to mess with and it looks like it could be trouble. We'll see what it comes out to but I dont want to go with a full comp cut or I would go to 100" wb.

ordering the trans to t-case adapter today, not really sure if that lets me clock the d300 or not I might have to buy a clocking ring also we'll see. I'll be swapping the t-case in presidents day weekend.
