well after spending the morning saturday moving some snow and spend a little time with wife and kids, 2hrs getting frozen tires off the ground i got to get the suspension parts off the front of the donor explorer and in the shop. plus i got a little visit from Brandon and his friend . (sorry i can't remember his name). the only thing i dislike about working on Fords is you always have to use half a tool box of tools to get a little job done. will post some new pictures later tonight.

big up date Beau was in the way in the shop so I took a set of axles I got from Earl Olson under it. Dana 44hp with leaf springs 8 lug and a dana 60 rear axle. next time it's in the shop I'm going to rework the front spring hanger mount and pull motor and transmission for a 302 v8 and c6 upgrade.
