Just another ton swap

Hello, new the the forum. Had to reach out to something other than facebook groups. I'm currently doing a ton swap in my 00 Xj. 03 superduty Hp d60 in the front and can't seem to find any info on doing it without a truss. Anybody have any info on such a thing? I'm on a 6.5" long arm already. Also could use some info on driveshafts. I'm running Tim woods shafts now with a sye thanks in advance for any info

I had a 79 housing so I didn't have the unfavorable offset you have, but a truss makes it easier as do coilovers . I know you can cut some of the casting off that driver side to make more room for a traditional coil and shock . mount . I have been meaning to do different drive shafts but I got behind so I'll be running 1310 cardans again this year. .my front is 1310x1310 rear is 1310 and 1310x1350 at the axle . I ordered some forged slip yokes to put on in place of the standard 1310 which are not forged like 1350 and bigger stuff . The non forged 1310 yokes tend to twist the ears off the slip yoke before the u joint breaks. . 1310s will get you through a lot just remember what you have and carry a spare you can make spares from xj and wj front cardab drive shafts clearance the yokes before you install them and you have basicly what get with Tom woods for $20

I believe Ruffstuff has a link setup to use the stock mounting locations.

Might be work a call to see if they think it works on a 2003 axle. My understanding is the tubes are just a little different size. I haven't looked into super duty axles very much.

Re: Just another ton swap

you could use the stock munts or hack them off and go 3 link.
U think I'd go 3 link raise lower links to axle centerline set upper so link seperatis adjustable 7-9"
9" seperation for bigger than 33s 7" for 33" and smaller
