Hello everyone, I am new to this site so please forgive my newbieness...

I have been out of the wrenching world for some time now and am ready to get back into the fray.
So to start, any help on where to correctly post some questions regarding 1990 and older axle swap and new/rebuilt sources would be greatly appreciated.

The newest rig I have is a 1990 1/2ton 4spd W150 LW that I would like to swap to 1 ton and 6"+ suspension lift to start.
I have no interest in keeping the current transfer case. Thinking 203/205 or ?

I will also be building a '77 Crewcab Powerwagon and a '78 Ramcharger 4x4, both factory big blocks.

In the end I would like to have as much cross compatibility between all fronts and rears, just in case I need to rob parts off one for another.

Hopefully this will be a good jump off point for these builds.

Thank you and best regards,
Twitch

    • My lugnuts take more torque than Honda's put out.

    But a 205 is the best transfer case ever made.
