That's what I think is the best of the D44's. I have the same axle, but from a 76.

It's a shame what they did to that old truck.

Indeed!

So for updates on our ex, My brother and I drove to Albuquerque in January to meet up with JTX on the board to get a 700r4 for the EX. Joey is a stellar indavidual and we had a blast pulling the motor and trans.

JTX cutting things out the way for the motor and trans to get pulled. Cutting is a bit faster because the ex is getting scrapped.

Motor and trans ready to pull. This was a blast to take a road trip from California to New Mexico with my brother and to meet a great board member.

Cool experience!!! I bet the end result will be that much sweeter because of the smiles and camaraderie of the build.

So for some updates, I have been working on frame prep. The truck is from New Jersey so the frame had a bit of surface rust to be removed.

We striped the paint with an 80 grit flap disc. Below is a pic of the bed liner we used. This stuff dries hard and seems very tough. I traded a 78-79 d44 housing for him to do this for me.

Nice build. Only being two hours apart from each other we need to do a wheeling trip sometime.

Some updates on the EX, work is slow enough at the moment to work on the truck. I took all the suspension parts and hade them all poweder coated due to the rust. I got the Brian1 transmission mount installed and I am putting together the cage head units.
