Forward lift drive axle? Why not a...
lift able rear drive axle?
I read a lot on here of people doing a lift axle of the front drive axle. I think it would be easier, cheaper and better to make the rear axle the one that lifts. You could put a regular drive axle from a 4x2 configured truck in place of your current axle, the drive line would be shorter and you wouldn't have to have a special axle made with a U shape in it to clear the drive line.
What say you?
Is this a worthwhile discussion?
