this is exactly what i'm doing to mine & for the same reason .
tranny was already done , suspension & steering has been redone , new HD springs in the front , 2 leafs added to the back , new shocks , all new bushings , brakes drums & rotors all done , a couple rusty lines replaced too , along with the rubber lines to the calipers , new bearings up front & brake componants on the back including wheel cylinders , radiator (stock but new ) tranny cooler & all new hoses & thermostat . belts idler pulleys & serp replaced . next is the rear rebuilt with 3.73 gears & an Eaton locker ..... then in the spring i'm blowin my wad on a crate motor .
yup , i'm going to the extremes with this one , but other than maintenance ..... i'll never have to do it again & i'll have a nice rig that could pull a camper anywhere !!!
