Yeah, i would replace all the consumbables on the front axle before putting it under the truck. I really would love to have the ford with locking hubs. the dodge is set up on an vaccum operated locker.

Another question would be, how much bigger is a superduty chasis than the 69 crew cab chasis. Would there be any hope of making it fit or should i keep looking for 97 back?

total spent so far!!!!
69 Crew Cab and Donor 72 F-250 1300
91 D350 w/12 Valve and a518 800
241dhd Tansfer case 200
total 2300

Yet to spend :
4x4 OD section for a518 400
Front end for 69 650
Motor mounts 160
Fab Work 300
Sandblasting 700
POR 15 Frame 150
Bed for 69 500
total 2860

Other Miscellanous will be 2000 Plus the paint job! Wait, i can't afford at all Anyone want to buy my project!!!!!!!!!!!! Just kidding. Gonna have to take my time.

when ever one takes on a project like yours it will cost money as we all know but the end result is you will have a brand new truck , one that is COOL & AWESOME with out paying the $50,000 price tag !

Yeah i know. I'm wanting to take my time and do it right. I've had some fixer upers but never really went all the way. The only thing i have brought back to a "new" condition is a 1975 Starcraft 18' Supersport aluminum boat. We did it as a family and there's not one like it on the water. I spent 3500 in the process, but a new one like it is in the 20K range.

99 Superduty Front and rear differential

I got a call from a guy responding to a WTB CL add today on the front and rear differential. He has a set of front and rear diff's for a 99 super-duty (4 wheel disc brakes) that i can pick up for 600. I don't have the case on hand, but will get it if they will work. I know the wheels for the newer set up are more expensive, but it is a low mileage bargain. What say you?

May have found just the thing to make it happen

I located a 1995 F350 4x4 Crew Cab LWB. I'm waiting on the guy to call back. I think it would be fairly easy to put the 69 Box and Cab on the 95 frame in lieu of the axle swap. It would make life a little easier i think!

Bummer, dude backed out on the sale. His 6.0 bit the dust and he decided to keep the 95. It was a great price and a great truck. THE SEARCH CONTINUES

Dana 50 Front end

The guy that i spoke with on the 99 SD front end called me back today. He needs to move the axles. The part # indicates a dana 50. It is what i have on my F250 SD Crew Cab. I've had no problem with it. I know the bearing are outrageous, but is there any other reason to stay away from the 50's. I can get the front and rear for 600 complete with hubs???

Maybe i'm beating my head against the wall for nothing, but i just keep looking around. I know if i just buy the axles i'll have to look for the hardware, springs then all of the brake line stuff as well. I'm looking real hard at a super duty frame (f350 4x4) with all of that with it for around 1300. Its just about 6 hours away. I'll eventually find what i want and get to work. I really need to sell some junk first
