Chop, Chop!
During the install, you should have noticed Mike C. is converting to a Ford 9-inch rear differential. Because the 9-inch has a drop-out third member and bolt-in axles, it's a bit easier to narrow than the Chevy diff with its C-clips. Mike C. took me over to M&B Hotrods to have his other friend, Mike Larabell, chop down the tubes and put the 9-inch back together.

The Final Word
There it is folks-how to weld in a triangulated four-link and fit some fat tires. The kit is just what you need and nothing more, and at 160 bucks it's a great deal. There is still some work to be done before this truck can be driven, so we'll give you an update once Mike has completed the work.
