FAKRWEE Navajo 44 swap

My new front end got in today. It's a custom Dynatrac 44 front axle assembly.

List of goodies include:
Reverse cut housing upgrade
Warn premium manual locking hub set
30 spline 3/4 ton alloy steel axles
Upgraded Disc brake Ass. 5.5.5
Ford coil spring bracketry
5:13 gears-reverse cut
ARB 3.92+ ver.
1310 dana 44 u-bolt style yoke
Heavy duty ends package
Heavy duty steel dif. cover
High clearance steering package
Width= 62 in.

I saved my pennies for quite awhile to be able to afford it but she's a beauty. I almost feel like not installing it.

I hope the pictures come out my battery started going dead.

The installer is fourxDr. in Burbank and Winter's designing the radius arms. We know they will be wristed but will not have pin's like bc broncos. I'll include pictures as we go along. Today they took apart the front end. I'm hoping the job will take about a month.:bounce:

Very funny Rick, "Clean look", "They even washed it for you":D I guess you have another carreer.;)

Josh C. I couldn't really tell about the ride because we're waiting on the new shocks and the old ones were disconected. We're putting 4 new rancho 9000X in the rear. The old ones are too short.

We weighed the four corners of the rig and came up with some interesting numbers. The rig is almost perfectly balanced which is great.

Front Driver side- 1,297 lbs.
Front Pass. Side- 1,277 lbs.
Total Front- 2,574 lbs.

Rear Driver side- 1,237 lbs.
Rear Driver side- 1,249 lbs.
Total Rear- 2,486 lbs.

Total Wt.- 5,060 lbs. Front weighs 88 lbs. more. Of course once I have a full tank of gas in the rear and my fat ass in the front this will change:eek: Also gear.

Ramping was pretty much even front and rear. We could'nt ramp it all the way yet pending some more fender and bumper trimming but it should be at least 1,200 RTI. Right now it's over a 1,000 RTI

Here are some pics:
