Finally SAS'd my truck

Well last summer I blew out both my front axle shafts while attempting a 4x4 boost launch lol at about 15-20lbs of boost they went, so I went on the hunt for a 60 and found a hp kp 60 with matching gears (4:10s) and it kinda sat around for about 5 months till i came across some 6in springs and everything pretty much to do it. Here's my truck stock with 35s.


Then out with the TTB


Good old TTB salute


Got the axle up under it, that 60 is hard to move around all by yourself lol it kicked my ***.


Had to bolt the tires up to see how it looked (still the 35s)


And then when I was finally able to drive it.





I did crossover steering so I could use my stock pitman arm, I gotta say I think it rides better than it did before and turns a lot easier. Next on the list is sky's shackle reversal kit when I can afford it and tear it down again. It is nice having 4 wheel drive again too haha and i can't believe how easy of a swap this was, if I woulda had everything that day I tore it apart i could of been driving it that night or following morning.

95 7.3 4x4 auto ex. cab LB, 3in DP into 7in single stack, K&N cold air intake, built tranny, fpr shim, HKS turbo timer, D60 with 6in springs, crossover steering.

If you're thinking about a RSK, give Cary at CT Performance a call/email.
His customer service is literally second to none.

Apparently you have never delt with Trevor at PMF. He will bend over backward to satisfy customers. And he does it with OUT an attitude

No need to. Have had nothing but possitive experiences with Cary.
Contacted him a few seperate times to get price quotes on different axle swap possibilities, and was happy enough with his customer service that my TS chip in en-route to him as we speak for a reburn.
Not saying he's the only source for an RSK setup, but from MY personal experience, customer service like his is a rarity.
