Small update, made these seal holders for the inner seals in the new front axle.

Took Thursday and Friday off this week so hopefully I will have some big things knocked out.

Looks good - you have some serious welding.

Gonna be a while before I take on another project like this, 10 hours into just machining parts. But, it's together and it will stay that way for a long time.

Thanks! Let's hope lol.

Got the axle under it and rolled outside to clean the garage some. Things big, but I've got a lot of big stuff under it...

Wow!  Love the bed extension.

Truck up that high would drive me nuts though. :D :D :D

Raymo, are those Solid's 60 inner C's?  And what outers did you match up to them?

It's looking like a very well thought out project.

Thanks Richard!

And yes, they're solid pieces. The rest is factory 60 parts. I would agree about it being well thought out, if I could hold a thought for more than 10 minutes at a time  ;D

Very nice stance...I noticed that we both now have heavy duty 2500 trucks ;)  (Leaving the 2500 badges on mine for a while anyway)

 ;D yeah, for some reason the donor truck had matched doors, but one side was 3500 and the other 2500! Richard would be happy to know that the 6.5 in the donor had caught fire lol.

Still have the 3500 4wd chassis, nice and clean too. Maybe a future LS project, who knows.

I ran my old '94 C2500 (light duty) around for quite a while with the 2500 badges still on the doors, after I had converted it from 6 lug to 5 lug.  Not many people noticed, but I did see a few scratching their heads over a lowered 5 lug 2500 that had all the appearances of being the original doors/paint/etc. (because it was!)

Pulled the old and busted 80 out and installed the Rockwell 103 with a 2" block I made up. Sits level and a lot better to look at.

Sneak peek of what's to come this weekend, I'm off until next Tuesday and I'm not taking any calls. Should have something to show in a few days!

Thanks Ed, I got lucky on that. Just back from blast and epoxy prime in that pic.

Phase one complete...
