Perch width would fit a normally sprung medium duty and will work for the front. But I have air ride on the back (and want to keep it) so I will have to move the mounts on the one that goes on the rear. Luckily there are a few guys on Pirate that are playing with these and have sorted out the materials and what to weld them with. Couple that with the next door neighbour being a certified pressure welder for nuke plants.

I do have some 8” x 3/4 billet plate to use for mocking up if timing doesn’t work for him helping with the initial fab (probably air arc off the perches and remount them 2” further out).

The other good news is that the trolley out the back has the same rear axle as this truck so I may be able to pull it to use to jig everything up.

Good news on the front axle. Rear axle should be fairly straight forward. I think you have a great plan and I can't wait to see it come together. You might even be one of the first to start an Axle-Tech axle swap and actually complete it. I've seen several started on PBB and have yet to see one completed.
