Mr Mud says Go Big or Go Home

After attempting to fix a loosing battle in the frontend, everything worn beyond repair, a SAS in in progress.

The front will receive a HD44 from a 1976 F250 where both inner and outer shafts are 30 spline, 411 gears, aussie locker 4 link.

The rear a Dana 60 from a 1978 F250 411 gears, spring under with the axle moved back 2" for gas tank clearance ( don't have to shorten the drive shaft that way!), and 7pack custom leaf springs, and a lunch box locker.

There will be Rancho 9000 x2 all the way around, running front and aft of the axle on all 4 corners.

Wheels and tires H2 8 lug 17" x8 1/2 with Hankook Muds 285x70xR17 = for those that need math that's 33"s

Very cool, but 3/4 ton axles + 33" tires does not equal "go big or go home"! :p
