1 ton taco truggy build up

ok, so i think i got enough to start showing some progress, i don't have too much time so this is a slow process.
the basics...
d60s front and back
5.38 gears
detroit front, welded rear.
DIY beadlocks
ADS coilovers front
Fox airshocks 2.0 rear
tube the rear of the taco
full hydro
36" iroks (for now)
if i have time and $ i would like to make a new dash with gauges etc (last option after everything else is running and working).
I think that's if for now.

first off, removing the tired D44



clean up and reinforce the frame...



find a donor vehicle for the d60s.....1979 f250, front HP kinpin. took forever but i finally found one.



take the axle from the truck and clean up time, lots of rust but all the bearing and shafts look really good considering how old this truck is.





parts start showing up...




neighbord helping out a lot.


couple accidents here and there...

Are you locating the "orbital valve" near where your old steering box was for any specific reason? If I ever get around to doing my SAC I was wondering if I could use my stock steering linkage and not have to make a new linkage or mess with modifying the plate on the floorboard that it passes thru. I plan to do full hydro steer on mine as well and thought maybe I could mount the orbital in line with the stock linkage. I'm jealous of your build & look forward to seeing the finished product.

thanks for the compliments man.
the reason i'm keeping the orbital valve there is because i was running hydro-assist before so i can use the hoses that i had then. i would like to run the orbital closer to the firewall so there is less stuff under the hood but then i would have to buy the new hydro-lines and they are pretty expensive and i can't affort it right now. ideally would be to mount the steering wheel to the orbital and that's it, like the comp buggies. but you can do what i'm doing re-using your excisting steering.
do you have a link for your build?
just get this from polyperformance the one for imports and it would bolt right up to your current steering shaft.

thanks for the info. on the orbital setup. I don't have a build thread since all I've done so far is swap in the rear 60. Unfortunately the truck has become my DD again & an empty wallet is preventing further progress. I will likely add some sort of rollover protection before doing the SAC, since my wife hates that I have to drive our son in it, even though he's never been off-road & I've never rolled it....women.
