About same setup as my Cruiser I just got done with..Except I'm still running rear 55 springs and flipped 40 front with SR...

....Pay close attention to engine placement for DL angles and fan clearence...

I'm running the master and adapter from Rockstomper..It stops on a dime with 39's


I scored a front 60 for a Blazer body..I traded a 10/12 bolt axle combo I got for free..The axle needed a complete rebuild...But what do you expect for nothing...It had 4:56's and a trash-loc..I traded the trac-loc for a brand new spool..Found the dually 14 bolt for 50 bucks..Had 4:56's too...

...On that 60...Try to rotate pinion up via rotating outer c's, if you can..You have to cut one off anyway..I didnt..And regret it...With front flipped springs and shackle revearsal.. I ended up with 12* of caster

...I just had Moser cut down the stock shaft..cost about 75 bones..used the savings on 35 spline outers and new u-joints....Hy-steer can be a bitch on a budget with a Scout 2 box..I'm going to go behind the axle with the TR when I get more mulla...

I ended up with a pretty flat belly with my SM420/300 combo...Not too bad on DL angles also.....

I love the end result..It wheels like mad and is soooo much more fun to drive..Good luck on your build..Feel free to pick my brain if you need to!

Just finished mine with the same mind set. I'm still open in the front, spooled in the rear but it's a blast to wheel. I didn't cut mine down at all and LOVE the stability. I'm still getting used to the width but I love being able to stand on it when necessary (or just because) and send the 42s up in smoke. BTW, I went LOMAX for the case. For about $1200 (including $100 for a 205 core) I have 3:1 gears with 32 spline front and rear output. When I ran the numbers, I sold my 300 and scrounged the core 205 from Toploader.

Glenn, just curious, how close does your steering shaft come to hitting the frame ? or is it even close ? the one from the firewal to the box.

finally got all four hubs mated to the new 3/4ton rotors....but not without a little glich.

the rear dually hubs mated to the rotors w/o any problems

the front had issues.......i removed the 1ton rotor and in the process of putting the 3/4 ton rotor on ,the rotor cracked.....it seems the wheel stud from the 1ton has a slight extra shoulder on it that was a little larger than the hole ,probably less than a butt hair but enough to crack it.

solution: rather than find new wheel studs i brought a 1ton rotor to the hardware and found a drillbit that fit the larger hole...11/16 .....the parts runner showed up with the new rotor the same time i returned with the bit.
i drilled out the 3/4ton rotors and we were back in bussiness.......sucked cracking a brandnew rotor but oh well

here are the cracks.....i wish i would have got a pic of the different wheel studs

And I was sooo looking forward to another midnight Cadillac trail-fix...NOT!

I hope this doesn't jinx your hi-lift streak

Clint,
Helping your old-man wrench on his rig, very Admirable.
You will never hear any comments about your rig from me...other then positive ones
