Aric, NO CONVERSION JOINT!!. The expedition driveshaft bolteds right up.....I was pretty surprised. Also, the u-joint for the front bolted right up to the d60 too, and i dont need to lengthen or shorten either the rear or front shafts. The increased lengths of the diffs make up for the hieght. Actully my rear shaft is a bit long, but i still need to raise the rear 3-4 inches so it should be perfect length when all is said and done.

Brake lines will be hard all the way to the ends, then stainless braided lines from the frame to the axles. I'm hoping i dont need to swap my master, but if i do, oh well, i have one with the cruise control from a f-350 so it shouldnt be a problem.
what front and rear drive shaft did u use with ur 4406 manual transfer case???

Last Summer, around august i swapped the crushed body, and then my friend and i did a coil over conversion and brought the height down some.

Front suspension almost completely unloaded. Had an issue with the transmission pump not picking up the fluid in the pan since i was so vertical..all forward movement stopped.

Have you come up wtih a fix for the transmission on steep inclines? Mine does the same thing, comes out of gear on steep climbs.
