HEY redjeep isn’t that a little over kill for Louisiana, the highest elevation is what 4’ maybe? Jeep is going to be to whey to heavy for the gumbo its going to sink. Tell you what, I’ll save you some embarrassment, Just send the stuff to my house and we will go half on the shipping cost. OK? <IMG SRC="smilies/eyemouth.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">

blkjeep,

Im down in Plaquemine, La. So if you ever need a hand for a weekend wrench-a-thon let me know would like to help out and learn more. Not much of a top mechanic, but I do know how to turn wrenchs. By the way that will be one hell of a rig once its done.

One question, what type of tranfer is going in?

TrevorXJ,

Thanks for the offer, I am going to tear into it shortly. Since I have 2 Dana 300's I will use them until they break then an Atlas will be going in.

Later all, I will be posting pics on the web during the rebuild.

Those axles come from the junkyard, if so what was the donor truck? I'm about to start lookin for 60s & I shouldn't have any problems with all the fords & chevys running around down here. Ruston, man that's north La., I heard you people talk funny up there. <IMG SRC="smilies/rasta.gif" border="0"> You not worried bout the lockright in the D60?

Well if it helps I was born and raised in South LA just moved up here to go to school.

I doubt I will have any trouble with the lockright, if so in goes a detroit... 1 ton chevy for the rear, military blazer for the front..
