Ok guys, I cant take seeing my truck sitting on railroad ties any longer. Time to get her rolling again.

THE PLAN
Ford D60 King Pin 5.13 front
Sterling 10.25 5.13 rear

Reid Racing High Steer
Crossover steering
hydro assist (later on)

15x20 8x6.5 wheels
44x19.5x15 Super Swamper Boggers
or 44x18.5x15 Denman Ground Hawgs

Farmboy Fabrications SAS kit
4.5" Hanger kit
10" Front leaf springs
12" rear leaf springs.
spring size and hanger size might change, but it will still be same effect.

I started buying some small stuff that I needed today, picked up a set of 38.5's but just cant go that small :D so Im gonna get rid of them for the 44's. Plus I got a great deal on the 15x20 wheels. Picked up a Power Steering pump since mine is blown, Im gonna rebuild it and in stall it, maybe tomorrow. Got a cheap aluminum driveshaft... plenty long but not sure that I want to run aluminum kinda weak. But with the V6 I doubt I'll be breaking it.

I will be buying the wheels and axles next week. Cross your fingers that they dont sell before then. Cause I wont find a deal like this again.

Tell me what yall think.

nothing is under it now.

It had Dana 60's front and rear from a Dodge. Couldnt keep a hub together for shit, blew 3 of them @ $400 a piece. The steering for a dodge cannot be setup for crossover so the way I extended the knuckle would cause too much stress on the power steering pump. Blew 3 of those aswell. The dodge axles are also low pinion which mean with my amount of lift... NO front driveshaft

Gonna start rebuilding the power Steering Pump tomorrow.

Looking at any way to increase flow, to ease stress on the system. Kinda like a port and polish but with liquid instread of air. I know the system requires pressure to function so theres not alot i can do, but im definitely intrested in ideas
