Could this be done on a 2wd version and then add a transfer case? Does the frame really matter when you go to this level?

the frames should be basically identical aside from the front suspension set up and yes this has been done on several 2wd trucks but they used leaf springs. if you are interested I haven't tossed the rear leaves yet, didn't think anyone wanted them. you can have them just pay the shipping.

well, as of right now the truck is going to sit. out to sea again, I did try to trailer it home but ran into some small problems. tacks cracked so I thought it safer to keep it where it was at and finish it there. I will just have to wait a few.

well, it seems that my job makes life stand still when I'm out to sea. grrrr. I ordered my compressor for the ARBs so I have to figure out where I want to mount it, possibly under the tool box in the bed but we'll see. I'm hoping to have it completely done a week after I get home but it will be a lot of welding and resetting the rear coil mounts. hopefully I will be able to do a test run and get a feel for it soon. the upper coils should be on their way as well and I did receive the high steer kit... finally.

honestly, I was hoping I would have been done a lot sooner but I certainly didn't want to rush it either.

well, the rear axle is completely in and welded, painted. sorry no pics today. but I will take some on Wed and post. have to re-order the front brake lines (grrrr) ended up not working with the D44 calipers. I will finish the welding up the front in the next couple of days, then its bleeding brakes and test driving.

so close I can taste it.

well, while the front is being completed, I decide to install the 240 intake to make room for the crossover hoop for the front towers. Now that big ass air cleaner is gone there is tons of room over the engine. still need to run tubing to the air filter in the dr. front now and go back to the junk yard for better connectors. the ones I had ended up being bery brittle do the early KAs in the HBs have the same connectors as the 240? mine being OBDII had totally different connectors (except for the air cleaner temp sensor). BTW, it started right up and idled around 500 r.p.m., it did throw 3 codes, frt and rear O2s and the MAF. only had the header on and no intake tube to the MAF, go figure. going to clean up the wiring and hoses a bit more. so yes, to all of those that wondered, the 240 intake does work with the 96-97 year trucks

Maybe I missed it, but what combination did you use to attach the front brake lines to the calipers, if you have even got to that yet.
