im thinking that an inch or two wider in the rear wouldnt make a big difference and now that phazertwo pointed that out im sure its hard to get a hold of one.

Little bit of an update:

Got my e-locker installed in the front.  Went in pretty uneventfully.  Built my front square d-shaft and got it installed.  Finally got to take it wheeling after all my hard work.  Had a good time and even did some level 4 trails which they call "extreme" at my local off road ranch.  Never had to pull cable.  My front is still open until I get longfields and wire up the e-locker.  I decided I need duals because on the more technical trails I couldn't go slow enough and my clutch let me know it after several obstacles.  Here are some pictures from the weekend.

is that SMORR?? i'd put the duals in before the Longs,  just keep the elocker unlocked when turning (after you get it wired up)  12voltguy does good work

yeah thats SMORR and I can wire up my own e-locker I just need the harness that plugs into the actuator.

yea the clutch don't care for that crap.  are you going to do 4.7's in your cases??

If I do duals it'll be 2.28s and 2.28s if not I'd consider doing 4.7s but I dont want to have a slow-ass reverse.  I know I'd like duals wayyyyyyy better.

So what is everyone's opinion?  I am selling one of my pistols and the money will be either put towards longfields or duals.  What is everyone's vote?  I have spare axles I just hate the thought of changing one on the trail.  But burning up a clutch aint any better...  I know duals will be more than longs though.  However, I might be buying another complete first gen this weekend so I'll have a top shift case and I am currently running a forward shift case so all I'll need is a dual adapter and I'll make my own x-member probably after seeing they're anywhere between $200-$450  :yikes:  Thoughts?

Thats kinda a hard pick. long or duels? I would go with glen on this one, Run duels and wire up the elocker. just unlock the front when needed. less likely to brake a front shaft when locker is open. duels then longs is my vote. Good work on the truck its looking good.

Hey jake, I was debating on installing a 8274 on my 80 pickup, you got any side shots so i can see how far it sticks out? Thanks

I'll go snap a pic right now.  It sticks out quite a ways but you could hack your grille and shove it back quite a bit more.  I didn't want a hacked grille though...

There is another one on the way it takes my phone forever to e-mail apparently...  While I am waiting does anyone have BFGoodrich KM2s?  I found a set local for a reasonable price.  Thinking about selling my A/Ts and mounting up the KM2s just not sure how their on road manners are.  My A/Ts did pretty good off-road as far as I am concerned but they look wimpy.  :_oops:

Sticks out further then I like, Ill probably just mount it in the back instead and put a smallish winch up front. Thanks for the pics.

KM2's are very decent and you can get alot of miles out of them with a light truck, they will be alot better then your A/T's in the mud/snow maybe even the rocks. The A/T's will last longer and the A/T's are quieter too.

Go duals first.  If yo don't hammer down too much the stock axles will hold up on 35s...

if your gonna do stock gears in your t cases then just put 4.7s in your single case and get the longs then later you can go duals and have 2.28 and 4.7s and longs thats a hell of a set up I run 4.7s they re great

Zeros, The longfield is an aftermarket birfield for a stock birfield, It is stronger and offers a better turning radius then the stock birfield.

Yup they're the ONLY way to go for aftermarket birfs.  I can't believe some people would buy dirty 30s for $80 less  :dunno:  Oh and I forgot to mention I got them installed last night.   :biggthumpup:

Nope not tough just pull the felts, take the 4 nuts off the steering arms and pull it off leaving it connected to the tie rod.  Then slide the knuckle off and let it rest on the ground (you'll have to make sure the upper trunion bearing is down all the way other wise it won't slide off).  Then just pull your old axles and replace with the longfields.  Getting them lined up can be a pain in the butt.  Overall about 1.5-2 hours is all it takes.

Got my front e-locker wired up.  Went smooth!  Makes a heck of a difference when trying to turn.  I can see my next upgrade needs to be hydraulic assist...

A little bit of an update.  I got an extra set of doors and decided to make 1/2 doors.  My arm was getting sore from trying to look out of the stock doors.  They look ugly still but I'm going to paint them to a similar color of blue.  Used a soup can for a cupholder and relocated the inner latch to on top. 



Also I ordered an MC07 from Marlin on friday!

so how long are the f150's? how much froward is the front hanger from the factory one? and why did you moved your rear shackle forward? i think your running a square front shaft right? are you having any pinion angle problems with the stock front hanger and banana shackles? are you using first gen main leafs or 2nd gen?

i know that a lot of questions but i just about have everything i need to do my suspension and hysteer and im going to do it all at once. thanks for the answers
