So lately our big project has been Superduty axle swapping our OBS truck and putting 05+ front end in it. this build is going pretty well and almost done now. i thought some pictures of the build would be pretty cool and see what you guys think. The truck has a 8" pro comp lift and will be running 37" Nitto trail grapplers with 20"x12" Specialty Forged SF010 wheels. They will be the first set of 20" wheels made by them and will be rolling on the truck to the Bloomsburg 4x4 Jamboree in July. we had to make our own trac bar bracket out of an 8" Rize industries lift kit and we have to do a little machining to make the bracket work properly. The 05 rear end bolted right in to the existing springs with no changes at all. We only had to put 1 step fitting to make the existing truck brake lines to the superduty axle.

How hard was the swap? Also where did you get the track bar mount I'm looking to do this swap pretty soon.
