$700 is a steal if they are from a single wheel vehicle! Still good if they
aren't.

Add some Duff c-bushing wedges (plus the JohnF and BW spacers, 8^)
Run the Hummer rims with 7" back spacing, which would be equal to a standard
3.5" back spaced rim and 63" width front axle.
Heim joint ends on the tieord/draglink would be the easiest.
If you leave it full width, i think you'll be ok with the oil pan. Any idea
how far the pinion is from the center of the axle?
HUGE stock D60 brakes!
Spool the 30 spline rearend for now, or lincoln locker. Later on you can
add 35 spline semi floating/floating axles and some weld on caliper brackets
for GM 1/2 ton calipers........If you need to. Lockrite the front if it is
geared 4.10 or lower.

I would LOVE to debate this with any body! I know all the pitfalls and
added cost of going with a custom D60, so bring it on! 8^) Now whether or
not you NEED D60's is another issue.

The D44 and 9" will sale eventually.
