Damn, a D60 in the front, whats in the rear? Also, whats the final gear ratio? That thing is becoming an offroad monster. Keep the mods coming.
The front is a D 44 out of a 79 f-250. It has 1/2 axle tubes, its strong enough
for my rig. The D60 is going in the rear, replacing my ford 9. It will have 4:10
gears and posi. I picked it up for 100.00 =P.

Next payday i need to go pick up a new welder looking at the HH 187 or
HH 210

Just curious but why are you replacing the 9 inch in the rear with a 60? Are you going to go to 8 lug front spindles and get new wheels? I realise the 60 housing is stronger but the 9 should be plenty strong with just a truss and parts tend to be pretty cheap for the 9". Do you plan to go 1 ton in the front at some point in the future? Always liked your x and look forward to the new mods.

I'm running the d60 due to i got it for 100.00, i thought why not.
My front spindle are suppose to be 8 lug. Since i broke one, i might as
replace it with 8 luggers.

I'm getting the suspension done first, then i'll work on the EXO (no drawing yet).
Still need to buy a bender. I'm going to make tube fender flares first.

R you willing to sell your old rims and what size are they ???

My axles will be 8-lug as well so just wondering. It would save me some money.

Are you planning a disc brake conversion on the D60 soon?
