    Still waiting on parts, cleaned up the IFS axle and got the leaf perches and some armor welded on. Also painted it silver like all the cool kids are doing now a days

      Got the axle under the truck, and everything put back together. Running the 4cy 3rd while the V6 3rd is waiting on parts still.





      No new noises on the test run, so that's nice

        Looks good. Any plans to widen the front now?

            Going to build up this V6 third and then keep the 4cyl one as a spare


            i beat the snot out of my ifs rear for 4 years and never had a issue with axle and shafts, ring and pinion different story. also get a track bar, that helped a shit ton.. also made a skid for the drive shaft to help from hitting that
