    '89 ram 50 straight axle swap

    Well it's been awhile since I've posted anything, you guys helped me threw my 4d56 swap! Now I'm back at it going to finish every thing on the truck now. I've put almost 7k miles since the swap an I love the lil diesel. Now for the good part...I got my hands on a set of tj jeep axles! I'm in the process of changing the gears to 4.88s, I'm doing away with the control arms and using front and rear radius arms off a land rover. I salvaged up wj front knuckles and rear disc! Still in the beginning stages of the build, i am so stinking excited I had to go ahead an start my post! I will start some photos tomorrow, forgot about having to take pictures sideways....

    Nice. This will be interesting - I think you'll be asked a lot of questions about how you're reconfiguring the suspension and rear disc set up.
