USMC, I am assuming that stands for U.S. Marine Corps. Thank you for your service to our country. I have a cousin in the Airforce, and 7 friends in The Guard.

35 spline dana 60 drive flanges.


upper link tower






Steering drag link.


Measuring for track bar bracket.


Roughing out track bar bracket.




Stick welding FTMFW!


It certainly won't win any design awards, but it should hold up..


Track bar bracket mostly finished.


Checking link, track bar, and steering clearance.


Approximately where the coilovers will be. Just getting an idea for clearance.



I'm still considering moving the location of my upper link to under the frame rail. if I do, I'll gain 3" of uptravel on the passenger side.

I love the fact you have the 300 with a ZF. I think that's an awesome combo. Love the truck. I'd like to do something similer to mine!

I love all the personalization in your fabricating, just makes it that much cooler!

Thanks guys. Now don't expect any progress for quite a while. I'm out of state working. And won't be home for any real amount of time until May.

Okay, okay, fine... no pics though, but a little info...


I ordered the 35 spline side gears for my dana 60 detroit locker. I should be ordering my bw1356/np205 doubler within a few weeks as well. I'm also planning on calling Poly Performance and getting my coil springs for the coilovers ordered very soon. Still trying to decide exactly what spring rates I want to go with. I've been sketching out ideas on how I want to rebuild my transmission crossmember. I'm not happy with what I currently have. I'm going to have it bolt to the inside of the frame, tuck up a little higher, and be a skid plate. Plan is to flatbelly the truck. I'm also planning on shortening and moving the upper link to under the frame. Where its at right now, it will hit my o2 sensor when stuffing tire on the passenger side. I want to get my truck sittin' as low as possible. 5-6" up travel, 10" down travel is the goal.


I also have a few ideas in mine for how I'm going to build my upper coilover towers. I do know that I want them made out of plate steel, not tubing. Shouldn't be too hard. I just am fine-tuning the design in my head, so it doesn't look like ***.

I am sure whatever you decide to do will look great. So far it looks awesome.

As for the skid-plates, I would be careful with that. If you take it in deep mud (which I am assuming you do, because of all of this fab work) then it gets high-centered a lot easier with the skids.

Can you please provide a little more information on the flatbed part of it?

It's very odd in a good way because I want to convert mine to four wheel drive, swap the E4 for a ZF, and do a flatbed! We have the same ideas!

300 Buster is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I know you probably have everything sitting good,but please be very careful with those jack stands.That's quite a project you have going there,should turn out great,but don't let it be capped off by an injury.Not being a smart a$$,just cautioning a fellow Ford lover.
