FL 5.4 is back from alignment and ready for road miles. Aluminess R bumper too, was damaged in freight so I had to send it for a re coat.

Couple questions for you Chris.
What's the differences between a Stage 1 and Stage 2 front end if no regearing is required and no locker is used and what do you do about the rear sway bar on your lifts?

Our Stage1 axle is 3.73 gears and the stock open diff. Stage2 gets you a gear change and the Detroit True Trac. We only re use rear sway bars on the RVs and ambos/buses like yours, we cut and sleeve the rear links to make them longer.

Do all Detroit True Tracs get their front diff cover? Mine is a stock D60, while all the ones on the videos have the Detroit cover, but I got the Stage 2 and it should have a locker but have not jacked up the front end and locked the hubs to find out. Will do so Friday when I rotate my tires and get a service done.

Color matched front bumper looks great.
Yea it turned out nice! Black would have clashed with the chrome grille and polished wheels.

There's no specific cover for the True Trac, do you mean Dynatrac cover? Those are cosmetic, can be added to any axle and has nothing to do with whats inside.

G'day Chris.
I see levelers on the RV. What, if anything is done to make them useful with the lifted rig?

When doing a partial 4wd swap, do you reuse the stock rear driveshaft? At this point, I believe I'll be doing the partial swap first, then coming back to the transmission/transfercase once I can afford a quality rebuild.

I've been running mine as a partial swap with the stock driveshaft since last summer with no issues, rest of the swap will be going down as soon as the weather warms up.
