2004 f150 solid axle sawp

Hey all i have lurked here off and on for years, never really posted anything (i can remeber anyway). I would like to say that the people here, are, for the most part great! And the tech is top notch. I am making this thread to show anyone interested in seeing my build, maybe answering any questions, and seeing other 04+ 150s with a real axle up front.

Anyway thanks all, pics to come!

Where are you located? A few months ago there was one for sale that had a cummins swap /D60 SAS. I think it was in the Peterborough, ON area.

So the truck got parked so i could slap a "new" trans in. Long story short that"new" trans didnt last long. So got parked again for a proper new transmission.

Good move. One of the most overlooked axles in the 4x4 world but absolute gold for those in the know. Locker selection is the biggest downfall. All gonna cost money.

But, they are extremely stout, and have the best ground clearance of any of the big 3 axle selections. There's a reason they don't sell aftermarket shafts for them, and it isn't popularity.


You're at 10 btw.

Yea i can attest to the beef levels of the super duty axles! In my area i can barly find 05+ stuff in the junkyard anymore..
But its not the "heritage" model it would be concidered the new bodystyle. Front axle is a D60 from an 06 f250. Odd boltpatten, but matching

Avoid photobucket. They F'd the internet recently. Ad ridden, site is slow, no hot linking unless you wanna pay big bucks.

Buying a red star on Pirate is still $5 cheaper than paying for a year of ad free Photobucket.

I love seeing f-150's with solid front axles. It's the best thing I did to mine. I used the same axles in my swap as well. Lay out the plan for us!

what parts are you planning on running?

What is the end goal?
