I like these specs. If at all possible I'd like pics of your axle/link configuration. I'd like to see the forward location in its relationship to the frame.

You got me looking at FOA......again.

I wouldn't go FOA again the shocks are strong but the machining leaves something to be desired.A friend of mine just got a set of fox shocks for his buggy and they seem to be a lot better shock and only a couple hundred bucks more(that's the next set I'm getting).Here's some pics let me know if you need any more.

You are doing a hell of a job on it. Nice. You are in Guam or I would love to check it out. Looks like it will bring you years of off road enjoyment! Have fun and keep your arms and legs inside the vehicle.lol

Thanks for the pics Tedd. Your front axle is LP? What is it? Looks like the truss and diff cover combo is Ballistic-ish?

I've settled on this:

Someone else's.

Axle is a hp dana 60.The artec truss is nice but the blue torch fab truss worked perfect with my hydraulic ram with little modifications.The hardest thing I had to do with the axle swap was the short side tube link mount(I didn't want to weld to the cast center section).Well my atlas is on it's way and I bent a spring the other day so i'll be ordering a set of custom alcan springs in a couple days and adding a traction bar on the rear. Hopefully everything will be here in a couple months(damn shipping)but for now I got my winch to put on.

My bad on the axle ID!!! lol Your fault for taking pic with the control arm obscuring the diff housing. :P However, I can't tell if it KP or BJ....

I'll check out blue torch fab as well.

Congrats on the Atlas

I like the winch box....and WELDER?

This machine is the craziest thing i've ever seen on this website. I think it'd be pretty cool with a full exo skeleton cage and the bed of the truck too!

Thanks Astartes, When I first started wheeling this truck I bashed the bed up pretty good and high centered on the rear driveshaft.So I moved the rear axle forward about 10" and junked the bed.I've been kicking myself in the a_ _ for not saving the bed or at least skinning it(I miss my bed).

Yeah Wh1t3nukle I'm not much of a photographer,it's a b.j. 60 I couldn't find a left side drop k.p. 60 out here, believe me I tried.

Well I got the winch mounted, I still have to add some dom tubing and gussets but it's where I want it(nice and tucked).
