    Well, I think I was second on this board to swap a 44 under my rig, behind Rick.

    '79 Bronco Dana 44:
    - housing cut 6" - pulled out longside tube from outer, cut 6" and press back on and weld
    - axle shaft cut 6" at LeJeune engineering in Victoria, BC - cut, tapered, and tig welded in the middle of the shaft - no problems
    - tierod cut down 6" and rethreaded
    - drag link cut and threaded to accept my Dana 35 TRE and adjusting sleeve - Dana 35 TRE used at pitman arm
    - coil buckets modified to accept James Duff 3.5" VR coils for EB
    - stock radius arms
    - '79 Bronco radius arm brackets
    - new Dutchman 1541 Alloy rear shafts for my 8.8" for 5 on 5.5" bolt pattern

    new this week:
    - '79 housing cut down 3"
    - BC Bronco knuckle inserts for Tierod over conversion
    - Chevy 3/4 ton TRE's
    - 1.5", .313" wall DOM tie rod
    - relocated trac bar mount on axle up and over 2"
    - F250 shock towers and Rancho 5012's
    - late 60's Ford E van coil buckets lowered on frame to provide additional lift
    - wristed radius arm

    Otherwise the truck sits with:

    - custom front and rear bumpers, and rock sliders
    - Warn 8274 winch
    - 4.56 gears
    - Detroit rear
    - Lockright front
    - 37" MTR's
    - 11" rear drums

    That's about it. I'll post some pics soon.

    Cheers
    Dale

    ps: best mod I ever did
