I think I did really good for the money

axle $250
hysteer and hanger kit $475.
ring and pinion/master install kit $230.
wheel spacers $65.
knuckle rebuild kit w/wheel bearings $145
U-bolt flip kit $50.00
Locrite (not installed..yet) $115.00
All-pro/junkyard springs $30.00
LC rotors $55.00
SS brakelines $50.00
Caliper hard brake lines $10.00
Ford shock towers $18.00
stock rear F350 shocks $free
shop supplies-$150.00
utility cart crushed by me $100.00

I figure I have just under $1800.00 into the swap

Good call on bracing those shock towers. I was wheeling Hell's Revenge with a crew from CO and a guy broke one of those shock towers clean off. His were not braced.

i do see a brace on those shock towers, maybe not enough, but something, looks like its braced to the motor mount

That's why I said it was a good call. ;)

Those shock towers aren't going anywhere. They are welded right.

Kick ass Marc! I can't wait to hit some trails with you. I'll probably have to stop while you go on some crazy obstacle! :(

you might want to think about turning your rear up a few degrees to get a better drive shaft angle. your u-joints will thank you. but i like i gotta pay mine off before i break out the fire wrench
