Did you shorten the housings? Was there alot of mods? Does it drive better/not better? Awsome looking truck.{cool}
Jeff
Do you mean the axle housing? No i didnt shorten them, they're still fullsize axles. It rides and handles pretty good. Alittle body roll on sharp corners but that because i dont have any sway bars. Im gonna bulid a custom steering setup, i have alot of bumpsteer as of now. I drive it everyday to school and work so im used to it. I didnt have a digital camera when i did the swap, so i dont have any pics of the transformation sorry.

Yes i did all of the work myself. The front was probably the biggest pita, trying to get it square with the rearend, center it, and making mounts for the shackles abd hangers. The front springs are off of a Jeep J-10 fullsize truck, the rear are stock Dakota springs. The rear axle bolted right up without having to move the spring perches.
