nobodyspecials Explorer Build (Fullwidth D44/9")

nobodyspecials Explorer Build (Fullwidth D44/???)

Well, I woke up this morning with intentions of pulling the D44 and 9" out from underneath my 1972 F100 that I had been building, but put on hold. I say I had intentions of doing it, until I looked out the window and saw that it was snowing. Maybe I will wait till tomorrow. :D Maybe if it warms up, I will get to it today.

Anyway, this is what i have so far for parts:

under the F100:
D44 drum (if anyone has any disc outers, let me know. Our junkyards are pretty bare)
9" 28 spline, will be converting to 31.
4.56 gears front/back
Detroit 31 spline for 9"

Well, I am back from surgery. Everything went pretty well, there were a few complications, but its no big deal, I already picked out this totally awesome wooden Pirate peg leg, so its cool!

I also got a new headlight and turn signal ordered from ped5stang, the guy that parts out tons of explorers and stuff. So, after that, I will at least be drivable (legally)

It was looking pretty bleak back then, but just so you don't think its like that all the time, I hobbled out and took a pic of what it looks like today:

So, I managed to haul my gimpy ass out to my Mountaineer (motivated by pain killers and my best friend, Stoli) because I was about to go insane sitting inside and took it out to the pasture for some faux wheeling. (haha, I made a funny) Anyway, it was nothing. Some dirt, some hills and thats about it, but it makes me long for the day when my body is no longer broken and I can get a rig put together.

I will admit the 5.0 AWD went places I didn't think it would, but then again I had pretty low expectations for it. :D

Since I like taking pictures, here you go:
