I am thinking (always thinking about) changing my IFS to a straight axle. How much of a time and money investment would this be? Just considering possibilities for things that i could do to my truck.

------------------
Modification? What modifications?

He he I just thought of a name for your truck, Bry. It has been on my lawn so long I am naming it the Pink Flamingo.


I was just checking out the All-pro site a couple of hours ago. They want like $1,600 US for parts with out the axle itself and like $3500-5500 with their built axles.

I'm sure that if we could find an axle that the local shops could do a conversion for cheaper. PG is supposed to be one of the cheapest places for mods.

It's alot of work and money. There are alot of things that need to be considered before you pass the point of no return (pictured above
).

What it really comes down to is asking yourself what kind of wheeling you want to do in your truck and does that kind of wheeling require a live axle.

I'd tell you about my truck but you probably wouldn't believe me.

Does that include labor if you have to get a shop to do the work or assuming that you have the know-how/time to do it all yourself?

With my beater car and 3 months insurance on it (which is up on the 1st and the truck isn't done) I'm over $5000, and my original budget was lower than Dan O's. I'd say make an educated guess and then double it.

Al from 4offrd told me the other day they ballpark a solid swap on coils at around $5000. Remember that's just an estimate.
