three things,
1- aftermarket wheels are a must, at least for crown vic brakes, the stock wheels dont clear the caliper
2- cv's are very, very common in the yards, TONS of wrecked taxis.. explorers are a bit more scarce, allthough hardly rare... WAIT for a 50% off weekend!
3- im on my 2nd d44, and both have had issues with axle seals, both are due to me being inexperienced with axle work, but the lesson is, use rtv on the axle seals when dropping in the axleshafts...

ANYTHING BEATS GREEN AND GOLD! the gear guy was feeling frisky!

after new paint
Nice Truss!! I want!! My D44 looks kinda small with my Q78 (36") tires!

Wait a minute....where are your shocks??
