Axles...
   I just instaled a set of full width axles out of a 1978 Bronco , high pinion Dana 44 and 9inch.
   Disc brakes front and back.
   5.13 gears, welded front and back.

   The 44 has the flat top knuckles off a 3/4 ton truck but made to work with the 1/2 ton brakes so you can still run the 15" wheel.
   Also the tie rod is 2" higher then the stock knuckles.

  Has custom coil mounts to bring the coil springs in so they are strait up and down..axles shafts are stock as far as I know but do have the solid spicer joints.

Suspension.
   Custom made extended radius arms .    Wild horses Coil-springs up front probably 3" or 4'' over stock
   Custom built lower spring mount on the axle adds a bit of lift also
   Not sure of the brand of leaf springs on the back but match lift on the front no blocks.
   Rancho RS 9000 5 way adjustable shocks
   Body lift also 2-3
It sits 10 1/2 inches taller than my stock one measured at the headlights.

Interior..
   Custom built 6 point cage, not a kit. It is also tied to the frame for extra strength
   Custom high-back buckets up front with 5 point harnesses                  
   Matching bench in the rear

Wheels.
SERIES 7089 - FLAT BLACK ALLOY WHEELS
7089-6885
16x8 wheel size5x5-1/2 bolt pattern-0mm offset4.5" backspacing  The offset on these wheel put tire part way back under the flares.
Load lbs. 2200
Xtreme Alloys Powder-coated Black

  I had 37'' tires on it before I swapped axles, they cleared fine but the 15'' wheels would not clear the rear calipers.

  The bad. Its loud and fast .
It does leak a little oil from the valve covers probably needs new gaskets. Trans pan leaks a little from where the the temp sensor is screwed in  . The speedo The offset on these wheel put tire part way back under the flares.works but I don't think it is accurate . It could use some weather stripping around the doors for winter time driving.
Asking $18,000 or best reasonable offer
Located In Amarillo TX. Right of I-40 and I-27
