Brown Santa came bearing gifts!



Gonna pick up bearing assemblies and rotors this weekend, and then start figuring out the third mounting bracket. Found one friend that has a welder, but isn't confident enough to use it. Have another buddy that knows how to weld, but has no welder. So between those two I should be able to get the bracket welded on sometime next week.

Teaser:





No, it's not welded yet. Just playing around with strong magnets. So strong that I could probably leave it like that and never bother to weld it. But welding is better, and will hopefully be done next week.

Parts are still trickling in. Rotors, bearings, and ball joints.

Still need:

Brake Pads
Bracket welded on
Diff Oil
Probably some other things I'm forgetting.

I have an entire week off January 11-17th. Hoping to have the axle installed by the 16th. Then I'll start trying to find a transmission and transfer case for the truck.

No, they came from the same Sport Trac I pulled the axle from. I just sanded them down, primed them and painted them.
