Thanks for the comments guys.  It sure has been a fun rig to build.  I put a dana 300 with 4 to 1 gears in it and Chromoly axles with yukon super joints in the frontend (which it will definetely need for the 41" Irocs).  Man are those yukon joints cool.  http://completeoffroad.com/i-123838-yukon-super-u-joint-d44-kit-yp-sj-297x-203.h tml   Check them out.  There are no needle bearings in them.  Ultra tough.
 
Thanks again, Erik

I just sprung it over on chevy axles with 4 inch bds lift springs.  It rides great.  In the rear You can even do a shackle flip from bj's offroad or just make new spring hangers like I did.  Either way you will easily clear 38.5's.  Any questions, just post them on here and I'll try to get back to you asap.  Good luck and have fun building it up.  One thing I can say is they're amazing offroad.
