Re: "The Bucket" project diary

Cut axles out from under the M1008 donor truck we bought at auction 2 years ago. Thinking may also get the 56" springs too & take a few leaves out to use with some conversion shackles for the rear lift. This old military truck is pretty much stripped of all the good now!
Loaded axles up on trailer & went to clean the grime off at local car wash.
When returned, decided to start with the 14 bolt rear. Took cover off to inspect gears, which look excellent. Then got rid of the drums to get ready for the disc brake conversion.
