    Looks great. Way more than I expected. You were too humble in describing this build. Great job so far.

Picked up a 14 bolt from Robbie this morning, got it to the shop and cleaned it up a little. Removed the drums and backing plate. I’ll be installing a disk brake conversion later. I’ll finish up cutting off brackets tomorrow. But now I have to take my oldest shoe shopping.....nothing like looking at shoes smelling like a rear end!!!:D:beer:

The brackets are cut off the 14 bolt. Fixed the gouges I made with the torch. Cleaned it up a bit more. Removed the Toyota axles I had mocked up. Cut off brackets and front frame horns. I will have to widen the frame to 30” to accommodate the LS. I will have to make new front frame horns so I can move the axle forward 6 or 7”. To get a bit more clearance for up travel. Slid the 14 bolt under the frame for a visual. The middle section of frame is 14” off the ground in the pic and the axle center line is at 18”. I was told by someone that seems pretty smart to build it and make everything fit at full bump....seems like a good idea to me!! Thanks for the help @Jody Treadway !

    What’s your plan for the front axle? I believe Pearman has a super duty 60 that already has most of the factory brackets removed, which is quite the job!

    Dana 60 for the front. I think the superduty axles have a different lug pattern. Not sure but I think it depends on the year model.

    Paging @Chris_Keziah for advice. The one Pearman has is just a housing so you’d need everything form the C’s out. May be the right time to make it all match IF it’s worth it. He said he’d take $300, comes with 4:10 gears.

    You may be better off starting with a complete king pin 60.

    On onother note, I made a deal on a set of axles out of a late 70s Chevy 3/4 ton. 14bolt rear and Dana 44 front. Anyone interested?? Not sure what to ask for them.

    Depending on the build would depend on which model 60 I'd go with. The lug pattern difference is easily cured with a set of unit bearings being re-drilled.

    For ultimate strength I'd go with the 05+ 60 but they're ~5" wider than your 14 bolt. I'm bias towards the 99-04 60s since there's more tube on the drivers side and 8x6.5 unit bearings are a little easier to find. For the ultimate budget killer I'd recommend the king pin as they are dumb expensive and offer no strength advantage over the other two.
