Gave up on the hp30. Little too boring for my taste. Kinda like the idea of a 609 build.

That's what I'm running front and rear. Let me know if you need any tips or parts.

Well last night began thinking about a 9" with 44 outers. I have a few 44s I can get knuckles from. Gonna run 35 spline rcv either way so I'm not sure if the 60 outers are worth the price. 37-38" tire.

The outer 44 stubs are the week point so I don't think you would be gaining anything. Just swap a complete 44 in.

You could put those in regular 44, too. And the 44 will already be high pinion. Tru 9 high pinion is about $2500 for just the 3rd member  ???

I'm still putting that one off. That's a chunk of change to replace something that already works, haha

I know I was just gonna run a spare lp9 I have laying around. If i could find a lp60 donor for a decent price I'll go that route and use the knuckles from it.

If you're set on a 9", at least go with 60 outer stuff for sure so you can take advantage of 35 spline. Otherwise you're just spending a bunch of money for no real benefits, just to be different.

Whatever you do you should get it done soon to do some wheeling before the end of the year
