Default Tom's full width build

Here's what I have planned. Not sure when I'll actually start it, but have already began aquiring some parts.

Front axle:
88-91.5 Ford HP Dana 60
complete axle rebuild parts
Stock shafts for now, future upgrade to 35 spline outers, longfield joints, moly inners
ARB locker
BTF or SFW front truss / ram mount
Ballistic CO mount tabs
PSC full ram kit
BTF High Steer arms / ARP studs

Rear axle:
Corp 14B (still need)
5.38's
spool
BTF rear truss
Disc brake brackets
Eldorado disc brakes w/e-brake

GenRight Suspension:
Front three link kit
Rear four link stretch kit
Front CO hoop kit
Rear CO mount kit
King Coilovers - 14" on all 4
Rear sway bar kit

FOA bumpstops

Transfer case:
ATLAS 5.0 2 speed

front/rear driveshafts - from wherever

Wheels:
Trail Ready HD17 Beadlocks 17x8.5 4.0" BS
New World series rings in black

Tires:
Pitbull Rocker 39.5X16.50-17

Seats:
Mastercrafts

Cage:
Either Poly Performance or GenRight full cage


Probably some other junk I'm forgetting, but that's most of it. Completion date will depend on sale of the vette. I'm hoping by ice breakers anyway

You can, but figured you're overwhelmed working on other peoples junk and their cages.

Nice build - I like the stance and the oil burner to boot.

I can't wait to start all this.. I really like the fact that there's a few of us doing these concurrently. Will be a fun next year. Especially the next long distance trip.

In other news, the vette moved one step closer to a possible sale. Should know more by the end of today

Hi Tom, the build sounds awesome. Put a price on everything you are looking at now, then compare the price to what it actually will coast you at the end. I am always curious as to how much we under guess what it actually costs at the beginning.

So you decided to go with the GenRight kit instead of piecing the parts together yourself?
