Will you want to keep it on the road? If so, and you only intend to light to moderate wheeling, I'd suggest a 60/14b set-up or 60/70. Rockwells just don't do well for long at highway speeds... unless you go to a higher gear. Ouverson makes a higher gear for them for guys that use them in DD's... that 6.72:1 is just too low.

More likely Rockwells would come later on for this truck. Like when I have another ram for a DD and I can build it into a tank. It certainty would just be a mud/trail rig.

For now tho, she does what I need it to.

Started a side project that I needed for the build. Air/Hyd Tube Bender...

Got all the metal cut and will start welding it up tomorrow. If I can find enough time, I hope to have it finished with a coat or two of paint before the weekend.



Will be bending 1.75" .120" wall DOM for the cage.

I couldn't make a cake in the oven to save my life!

I managed to find some time to fully weld the large components of the bender together.



Then squared it up and tacked it together.



Got a bit more welding done, but it got too dark for pictures.

Thanks!

Front axle is coming out today. I got an offer for the old tires so no point in keeping the axle under it any longer. Hello jack stands.
