COOL BUILD DONT SEE THEM DONE MUCH :beer:
cause the gap was massive and wasnt sure if was better to leave it open or try and fill it. was easy 1/2 inch gap and if you look at the picture of them on the bbq you can see the same gap on the back side in the same spot. like said not really the impressed with them but considering the price i guess they are ok :homer: from looking around if i was to ever do something like this again i would go with the JHF weld on kit over the Artec kit as just looks like a better designOn the steering brackets, why doesn't the weld go down the cast steering arm all the way?
have talked about doing the swap as its a way better axle with more options to beef it up later on. but he pretty much has to stay with the 99-04 diff as truck was leaf sprung up till now and hes running 16 inch wheels and has 5 tires/wheel that are pretty much new and not looking to change yet.Do you have any thoughts on using a -05 and up Dana 60 instead of the truss on the 99-04 axle? I guess it would be more work.
Btw, love the build, one of my favorite on pirate!
here you go, just the artec ones nothing fancylooking good :smokin:
next time your in the shop can you get some pics of the axle side link mounts?
Are you at all worried about your link wollering out the these holes? Maybe it's just the angle of the picture but there doesn't seem to be much meat between the holes.got the frame mount burned in, sucked trying to weld as couldnt get my head in there with the helmet on or the torch in some spots nicely
should be some updates on my build before end of the year, just waiting on buddy to machine the parts i need for my coil overs then can get back to working on it.Also can’t wait to see more on the plan b Ford thread

as long as the bolts are tight i dont see an issue at all, plus running a hard washer on both sides of the boltIf the bolts stay tight it should never be an issue.
thanks man, he worked on it the other night and got a set of ebay F150 headers to fit and lucked out and only broke 1 stud. he figured now was the best time to do it before we stick coil overs and tube work in the way of getting in thereLooking good
