Yup. Basically will be building a truck. Custom built frame, suspension, D44 narrowed with high steer knuckles, coilovers, flat bed, etc. It'll be off road only.

Thanks. And yes, I have two of them. Great dogs. They need a lot of room to run though. I have an acre of lawn for them to run. I put an underground fence in for them.

That's awesome! Great looking Heelers!! Thank you for posting the pics of your Heelers! Just showed the pics to my wife and she likes them! Been trying to tell her that a Heeler will be a great swimming and running buddy for our Retriever!

Get one. You won't be disappointed. My one dog absolutely HATES the water and the other tolerates it.

Thank you! I'm laid off at the moment so I've got all the time in the world.

Got the chrome rear window trim installed tonight. LMC pretty much raped me on the price ($50) but that's the only place I've found it.

Also found a bumper I'll be picking up next week for $40.

Started tearing into the sterling. It's got 4.10s and a L/S stuffed in it. Drums were toasted. I took them off and it had brand new brakes on it All I need to get for it is a wheel seal, pinion seal, diff cover, and drums.

i seen where you stiffened the front axle. you also said you were the suspension guy. heres some insight on the worst part of a ford suspension. rear springs have to much flex under power. it lets the rearend move to much and it breaks stuff. one of the main wear parts are the carrier barring and ujoints at the yolk due to this movement. you would think that the huge 3" wide spring would flex like it does. theres a utube video of a guy who put a camera under his to show how much it does move, you`ll be amazed it doesn`t break more than they do. this goes all the way back to the `73 models, for the life of me i don`t know why ford didn`t fix it.
you got that `ol truck looking good by the way, nice job.

Thanks for the "heads up". Already got that covered though. Roadmaster active suspension eliminates the axle wrap problems as well as act as a load stabilizer and sway bar. And thanks for the kind words. I think she turned out great as well.
