replacement parts are only had online, the pinions are stupid long, too tall to fit under an OEM frame, i had to move my drivetrain and cock the engine and run a two piece front DS and remove most of my frame to keep it low. but i would do it again.
thanks for the props, if you get 'em, holla if you've got a question, maybe i can help.

Cool deal! I will be watching for that, and maybe copy you. I have a small lathe (12 x 36) and a small mill so I can do some stuff, and planed eventually to do that myself.

I have done a bunch of reading in the merc section and seen a couple threads of it being done. Doesn’t look too hard to me, turn down the 404 hub and make a new press fit flange for it and burn the two together. I think adding the weeps horse shoe I will make adding the caliper bracket easier? I will have to reread because I forget everything.

I finished the inside of the boatsides.







Got started on the seat mounts.







I cut up some angle for the sliders to bolt to.






I also found this bad boy on my front step.



It goes with this that I got a few days ago.



They are for my tow rig. They are full built DTT parts (good for 1000 tq)

Thanks for the props

I had been putting it off to (it was a pain in the ass), but I had to plate the frame and attach the seats to the cage, so I just went ahead and did all three at once.

Still waiting on my portal gears so I got some little things done on Scoob.

I added a vent to the rear axle.
The portal boxes in the rear, vent into the housing, so I only needed one.



The front portal boxes each have their own vent so I brought them all together.



T’d the two lines and ran them up to the top of the fire wall with the trans/TC vent.



I also added a petcock to the lowest point in my OBA feed line.
It looks like its hanging down but that is just the pic. And I have a smaller one that you twist to open that I think I might trade out.



I was also worried about smashing the drain plugs on the axles, on the rocks.

Before



Took some .25” wall DOM



And made these
