Well, we are almost finished with the front end. Here is the progress so far (pics below). The plan is that we will completely finish the front before getting started on the irs rear. I have the new rinny rear and knuckles sitting there and waiting... The front end has 24" of ground clearance to the lowest point. Oh yeah, Gorilla is making the axles and they should be here Tues! Also the brake lines will be finished tuesday.

Wow, interesting. I have thought of trying to do a Rincon rear on mine. Where did you get the parts? Price? Please take many pics of the rear end conversion. Very impressive so far, keep us updated!

Thanks for the compliments guys!

Got the rear diff brand new off eBay ($300). The knuckles/hubs/studs..etc come from powermotorsports.com. The total for everything run about $300, so far. Ofcourse, the custom length gorilla axles are $400 per corner. Wow...I get kinda depressed just typing that.

We removed the rear end / swing arm today and got some measurements to get started on the irs. We are planning on making the rear look as close to stock (except for the lift) as possible and also put a receiver hitch setup... we'll see. I have some more pics of the progress that I will put up later.

I am going to sell the rear end (complete) with driveshaft and swingarm. What would be a fair asking price (for local pu only)? I also have a bolt-on axle paddle (we built) for '05 foreman if anyone is in the market for one???

I am using a Rincon shaft. They are the same ratio.

No we don't have a Tig welder.
