Ryno you were talking about getting rid of the arms and putting in some beams. Would it be a 2wd ibeam chevy or 4wd?

It will be 4wd. I am taking my measurements from a 91 f150 later this week. From there, I have to get busy on drawing it all up on cad, and making the numbers work for the mounting points. I figure it will take me a decent 3 months to get all the parts, and get the steering figured out.

Build it like a Rhino, and Leave it be.

So you are doing it yourself? Do you have to change out the tranfer case or transmission?

The transfer case and transmission should both work because the ford front end is a driver's side drop like the Chevy is.

My entire driveline stays. All I use is the Ford 3rd member, and a custom front shaft. MIT in El Cajon can do one for me in a day, maybe two. As far as I'm concered, I might go see the boys @ H&M to see if they have any trick ideas.
