a triangulated 4-link would be the best.....but I'm going for a budget build here. I want this to be my daily driver I have no intention of doing and serious off roading or jumping in this thing, of course I'll have to play a little  but not too crazy. So OEM parts is good for me.

Hey Chilibean, Summit Racing has an easy to install four-link system for race cars.It just needs a  flat area on the back of your frame to mount to.....The reason I would suggest this route is the spacing between the duallies is so narrow. With leaf springs there is so much outside weight it can cause the axle to move from side to side.....The four link dramatically reduces the side motion because the four-links have opposing angles to the frame.....OK there it is my two cents...Just my humble opinion.....BWD

Shop around there are some fairly inexpensive 4 link kits around that will work great, just having the stability, control and ride would make it worth it. I to want to make mine a driver, there are alot of extras to keeping it street legal..... oh an mine al so has air conditioning ......lol....

Well, I got enough bushes removed from the side of the house for a drive to the back. So now I need to put a gate in the fence and move my shed. This is all critical becasue I will have my donor truck this month some time and will need a place to put it.

Oh and I checked on the price of steel dually rims at pull-n-save and they are only $20 so I'll be heading that way in a week or so. yay

While I'm thinking of it does anyone know. When rims are made wider is the steel that is inserted a large tube or rolled sheet?  thanks

Anytime that i have ever seen a "custom" extended wheel, the insert they used was a thick gauged flat sheet of steel, rolled to the diameter needed, then welded at the seem, then welded to the two halves of the wheel.  

There might be better ways out there to do it, but thats the best i have seen so far.

The rear end under the mn-12 cars is pretty cool they were the same on the Cougars of those years too. But with the heft of 38"x12" dualls I think a solid axle is the best choice for me. I went with the GM rear because it's a good axle and the price was right

Ford is fine with me, The donor truck, Engine, and Trans are all Ford
