Hi
Look for disc front end from 40/75 series. Get the rear end aswell with full floating axles. OME suspension.
5 speed box with late model transfer.... we are up to about 3 or 4 k already.
Look for a rusty but upgraded already unregistered truck be it 75 or 40 series, and do it cheap

Wombat,
The boys at Wolf Offroad in the ACT have just started a bj42 project car. They are always good for some advice and to source viable options. Try them on bretton1@bigpond.com they definately know what works.

Good luck

Brett
