For my 10,000th post I guess I will start my SAS registry now that the truck is done. Section525's SAS Build thread Specifications Front '83 Wagoneer LP D44 JCW 5-leaf Springs (Stockers) Detroit EZ Locker Spicer 4.88 gears Warn Premium Hubs Rock Equipment Super Boy Howdy Fabricated Knuckles Sky Manufacturing High-steer arms Pro Comp MX6 Shocks Rear Stock 8.8 SOA Sierra 4.88 gears Detroit EZ Spidertrax 5x4.5 to 5x5.5 adapters Stock shocks The Build The LP D44 came out of a 1983 Jeep Wagoneer. I was there when the guy pulled it out from under the Jeep. It was nice to see the condition of the donor before buying the axle. I began the tear-down of the axle and everything looked good inside. I used TT Fab Works SOA perches for the D44 Here is the bare housing ready for hot tanking. After the hot tank bath, it went into the blast cabinet to get even cleaner This is what it looks like when it's cleaner than it was when the factory got it! I built the front spring hangers out of 3.5" square tubing (.250 wall). That make the inside width 3". Good for any spring you would every want to run. Make sure you cut the side off with the seam. Drill some holes. Round the edges and you have a nice spring hanger. Looks like something you would buy off the shelf but for a 1/4 the price. I think these ended up with a cost of about $2 a piece. For the front crossmember I used 4"x6" .250 wall tubing. I angled and capped the ends for bling factor. Also to completely seal the crossmember so no water or mud would end up inside. : I added some speed-holes to keep my top speed in the 140s. Here it is mounted in place. There's pretty much only one place it can go between the body mounts and frame horns.
