Yep, thats a rather simple swap. Those 1 ton HD's have leaf springs in the front already and all you do is drop an axle in place of the I-beam.

Re: its chev and its SFA, so here it is.

Aren't the rears in those 3500HDs Dana 135s or something like that too? It's got an odd lug pattern on the rear too. I remember the axles are bolted into the drum/hub in the rear with only 5 bolts. Or at least the last one I looked at had only five.

Since the 3500HDs have that extra peice bewteen the bumper/grill that goes around and up for flares, is that an even taller wheel opening than normal? Could you stuff some bigger tires under that with a bit o' trimming on the sides?

Re: its chev and its SFA, so here it is.

Yeah, lots of farmers around here have those too, and my jaw drops everytime I pass one [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] They run a standard 23 monster truck type tread unlike the one pictured, but does it really matter when they're that damn big? [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Too bad I didnt grow up on a big farm, I'd section off an acre on a low corner just for play time and one of those things would defniitely be the vehicle of choice [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]
