So I picked up some parts while I was visiting family over the New Years break. I picked up a HP Dana 44 with 1/2" tubes from a 1975 F-150. I just bought it as a housing because 1975 had drum brakes from the factory. I had a stomach bug the day I went to pull the axle so I only got the axle about half way out before I was super sick and went home for the evening. I came out the next morning and pulled it the rest of the way out. The truck was part of a dont hide/stand behind a vehicle in a shooting training because bullets go through sheet metal. Needless to say the truck was shot to heck but the axle was not thank god. I want to eventually go full width with radius arms, 5.13 gears and 37x12.50r17 wheels and tires.
