got the atlas installed and hooked up except the front driveshaft
was able to re-use the trans x-member /skid i made up (skid not on yet)

had to change the design of the 2nd portion of the console so that the shifter box would mount to the floor instead of the console
here is the shifter box with some mounts i made up to bolt it to the floor

and the finished look , except the shifter knobs those are getting replaced

Hey dude awesome truck. You don't still have te original front running gear or know of anybody about to do the sas do you? I have an 03 crew cab 2wd and would love to make it 4wd. I could just do the sas myself but I'd need to locate a front axle and I dont know which ones will fit. I'm not looking for an aggressive truck just something to play around in since it is my dd. I could probably do a divorced transfer case rather than trying to locate and swap in a 4wd one. Thanks.

new shift knobs installed


got the ruff stuff diff cover modified , kind of hard to tell but there are (2) 1/4" allen head screws on the bottom of the cover 1 in the center and one to the right
i may roll the 44 out from under the truck and get the 60 mocked up so i can get the lower link brackets, pan hard bar and hydro assist brackets on then go ahead and pull it back off and paint it

Just out of curiosity, what is that 60 out of? It looks like a 79 diff position, but it has balljoints.... custom tubes in a newer center section?

correct , its out of a 93 i had the long side shortened and short side lengthened not quite 79 specs so i had to get custom axles made up

the housing was only $100 at the Jy so i figured its better than paying $1100 for a axle i would have to re-build anyway

very cool, for the headliner if it bothers you with the seems maybe put some velcro behind it to hold them together. otherwise, how often are you going to look up.

two questions:

what did your final front axle dimension end up at?
and
what type of bender do you have?

VERY SWEET BUILD

wms to wms ended up being 66.5
i think the inner ps axle was 30-7/8 and driver side was 19-7/8

i used a HF bender for just about everything except the cage and front bumper
the bumper i had a shop bend the tubing i just layed out the design with emt, took it to them and they matched the bends then i put the bumper together

the cage i had another shop do for the most part then i did the dash bar , floor bars and windshield bars along with the tool box mount and ice chest mount
