Looks great! keep us posted with how the project goes. Good Luck
Thanks Willy,

Finished painting the passenger side frame today. Gonna get the cab back down on the frame and start re-assembling tomorrow.

I hope everyone is having a Happy New Year!!!

It's been awhile since I updated. Things are moving in the right direction with goodies on the way.

I managed to finish up the frame painting, body mounts installed, gas tank painted/installed and all the Hotchkis springs with new control arms installed.

Now I'm looking at the differential. I have a new (stock, I think) carrier and (polished?) 373 gears I picked up years ago. I think I was going to use them in my Expedition and didn't for some reason.

But of course, I really want a True-trac!!! I'm on the fence about this one. Help me out with your thoughts.

Looks like the new differential I have is a stock limited slip unit. I'll start pulling the old one while I decide if I want to go with the True-Trac or with the stock replacement.
