    I came accross a GREAT little upgrade for lifted TTB vehicles. I work at a shop and had a 2002 F350 2wd come in for balljoints. I looked at it, and what do you know, SOB still sported TTB (this goes to the present models, 2011). I looked at the radius arms, and they're about 15 inches longer than the stock D35 ones. I measured the opening at the front (thickness of the beam) and it MATCHED the Dana 35 beam thickness (5.5") !!!!! This is a bolt on Extended radius arm setup that I've come accross and every forum that Ive been on has NEVER heard of it. Thought I'd share this with you guys if you dont wanna shell out the $500+ for aftermarkets....just head to the JY and pull em yourself!

    You MAY have to build a crossmember, or move one crossmember forward...I havent found a set to test it out on. I will update this thread when I find a set (which is easier said than one has any)

    First of all the axle that I know of is Leaf sprung. If you want coil, get a D44 out of an early bronco if you wanna stay narrow width and not go all out Full Width.

    **** aint cheap that's for sure. Set aside at LEAST a grand for new gears/lockers for the axles, You need someone who can weld (due to having the wrong kind of steering box on your truck) you up a plate for your frame to hang a steering box, etc.etc.

    Axle: $125 + fuel
    Steering box: $100 + maybe $100 for labor and supplies for the plating
    Gears/Lockers; $1000+
    Brackets, leaf springs (front and rear lift springs): $500+
    You're looking at close to $1500-2000

    OR if you wanna go full width, buy my big truck for $1500 and I'll just swap the axles and everything onto your truck (D44 with 1 ton outers/steering and a Full Float Dana 60)
