Re: XJsportG's "How'd I get here" build

Entertaining thread. I will be following down your path shortly. Starting to plan the axle parts gathering, build them, and throw them under and weld them in. I'll have to add steering assist and take care of brakes but I will be closely watching this.

I am looking for a pre super duty dana 60 axle with Ball joints to keep the maintenance simple. The rear axle is still a question mark!

That's plan. I figure I would do the OTK mount to start and go to a High-Steer mount if needed, which I probably will.

I could be interested if your going to sell it -- I'm in Jersey, driving down to get it wouldn't be unrealistic
Currently, I have a friend lined up to but the housing and gears. I am going to be keeping the Reids and outers for now.

Thanks, the BJ 60 would be a good axle, only downside I think there is limited options for aftermarket knuckles. I have a PSC steering box and hydro assist kit that'll go in once I get the axle in.

If I could do the rear axle again, I may have gone with a Dana 60 from a E350 with disc brakes. The spindles would fit the 35 spline shaft so you don't have bore them out.

4wheelsupply here in VA will machine and install a hi steer arm on your knuckle for under $200 I believe. They look beef. I am aware those knuckles arenít the strongest but there are kits with a little bit of welding you can make them beef for cheap.

Not a bad deal when you can get the BJ 60s a bit cheaper.

Hindsight 20/20 I may have gone with a 05+ Superduty 60 if it was the right price.

Looks like a good list, and good start!
