The "short term" goal for this truck is to be a reliable weekend warrior/DD capible. For right now im just looking to get the thing running and driving around again. Longer term goal is 37s gears and lockers, fiberglass fenders. Custom skids, bumpers and sliders. Haha we all know most projects will never be "done" i'll fit that whale down any trail it fits down. though im not doing hardcore rockcrawling, it is a fullsize after all...

Don't write it off as not capable on the harder stuff just cause it's a full size. You just might be surprised. Obviously it probably won't win any we rock championships but full sizes can do some very challenging trails. My truck has honestly surprised me, and lots of jeep owners too

@Baron85 is spot on with his assessment. I feel the exact same way about my truck. Full size ext cab short box silverado, three linked front on tons turn heads when your waging war against the black Diamond trails at the local ohv park. Jeepers are always smiling, taking pics and giving thumbs up when you make the trails they struggle on look easy. Stuff it down some tight trails, and have fun!

-31, Kms v1.0 SAS parts.
-Professionally re-built 4r70e (like 200kms ago)
-Rear axle is a sterling 10.5 out of an 03 super duty. Stock. 3.73. With stock LSD.
-New driveshaft from pats driveline.
-Front axle is a stock dana 60 out of an 06 f 250. Also 3.73.
-Stock tie rod & drag link. ( came with the axle ) no one will believe me but got the whole axle,hubs,brakes,steering and coils. Everything, delivered to my door for trading my aftermarket f150 wheels. Connections are everything!
-Stock f250 steering box, new PS hoses to work with f150 PS pump. Also modified steering shaft to convert to box setup.
-Ruffcountry adjustable trac bar.
-Custom track bar bracket.
-Custom control arms ( radius arms ) with ballistic fab flex joints. With custom built control arm braketry, did use their frame link mounts as a base.
-E5TZ-18183-A ford shock brackets.
-Will probably use some bilstein shocks 5125s

I probably missed some stuff, but that is basically V1.0 for the SAS. Main goal is to get it running in its new form for now. Have to let the wallet thicken up again. Haha. V1.5 AND V2.0 will include gears lockers, bumpers, skids, sliders, 37s and fiberglass. And anything else that i need to change.

Poo man because his welds look like shit?

You don't just run a straight line with mig, there is almost no penetration. He needs to do circles or c's.

Edit: professional? On what? Mufflers?

Any chance of ABS working? What about VSS in the rear axle? Just curious how well electronic junk plays amongst Ford's of similar eras.

The rear axle speed sensor plugged right in, truck was all happy with the rear swap.
I have the ABS fuse pulled and was not really planning on dealing with the fron sensors. But i will let you know if it hooks up or not.

For one, I never claimed to be any kind of great welder, but I can damn sure lay a better mig bead than that.

Two, that's not the point, those are shit for mig. Maybe he can lay bad ass Flux or stick, but those are shit. Try posting them in general chit-chat and see what the concensus is if you don't believe me.
