Default Official build thread

Thought I'd start one of these as I'm collecting parts pretty readily now. This will be my axle/gear swap.

Plans are for a complete suspension rebuild:

New front axle with new everything and 4.56 gears (thanks teamexplorer!)

Rear will be a Ford explorer 8.8 built with gears/ a limited slip, etc etc...

I'll post pics up tomorrow or the next day of the axle tear down and cleaning.

Well here's some pics for y'all finally....Here's how the truck sits now. After the gear swap, it will be getting some new belltech 6400s and an extra inch of lift as the rear is still lower than the front (bugs the hell outa me!)




Front axle:


Rear 8.8 Disc: It's all cleaned up and torn down ready to go to the shop when the gears come in sometime next week!
