    I ditto the above suggestions. I used the axle out of an '89 Jeep Cherokee. The only other suggestion I would make is to consider whether you will keep the original parking brake or use the parking brake from the new axle. Some fabrication issues depending.
    Best upgrade other than disc brakes and duel MC. IMHO

    From Nebraska, grew up near North Platte on a grain an cattle ranch. Had no neighbors to the East or south, just natural grass pastures know as the Great Sand Hills. No electricity, no telephone, no radio after sundown, no crime, poverty, homelessness, nor fake news!

    I did not like the 51-53 dash until I two toned it. The top of the dash continues to the doors a nice wraparound.

    I would guess, the amount of salt you will encounter will not do an appreciable amount of damage. Your wet springtime should adequately remove most. I need the road therapy, need to get out of my shop. You have set a great example of humble sharing, which I enjoy. 
    a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your family.

    I have replaced body mounts by using wood shims to block up the body off of the frame, with a 2x4 used to lever the body up to add more shims...then the old body mounts pop out, new ones slide in, remove shims, PROBLEM SOLVED

    Glove box side. A qualified yes. To my eye, it balances the dash as well. I have added the tach in the speaker grille.

    Brad;
    Yep the horse blanket is comfortable in all conditions. And it has a fair amount of texture so you I don't slid around. It gets really hot here and in my mind is the only thing that makes sense for a seating surface.
    The real thing here is you being comfortable. I am in my truck every day and I will tell you that when you spend much time in one of these trucks you want whatever creature comforts you can get. I spent quite a bit of time "fine tuning" the various aspects of the cab. It makes a huge difference if you plan on using your truck very much. Stuff like good cushioning, seat positioning, sound proofing and insulation can make a huge difference. And most of this can be achieved without dramatically altering the appearance of the truck.
    Hth, Jeff

    Paul, I'm now out of spending money, so you will have to soldier on with your '53-'54 wagon.

    I only know that there is a wide descrepency in headlight brightness in California. Raised trucks lights are absolutely blinding. Very dangerous.

    The Tesla truck apparently has an LED bar front and rear. A very interesting vehicle. I like it, i does not. Have any paint on it. LOL

    Can an  LED light bar be used to replace individual lights? The obvious answer is a qualified yes because they are used on off road vehicles. But can they be legal on the public roads? 2. Can they be dual filament for hi / lo lighting.

    The location is come what critical because it must fit into the hidden frame cavity below. My suburban is not home now so cannot give exact position. However, that switch can be installed any time so pressing need.
