    Gettin my nut off II

    Had to reboot this POS computer, meanwhile Smokkey sneaks in. T-case clock comes sometime later this Summer. Already have crossmember, new mount and GLORy clock ring kit. I have the ReadyWelder if I want to revise the exhaust, but probably workout to have a muffler shop cut & weld the "Y" pipe.

    I don't check the Sub forum too often, but if you need help reading/setting the gear pattern PM me.

    Thanks man. This is the front one first. That way I get over some of the learning curve on the cheap. Being the front, I put on the bulk of 4WD miles (500?), I'm only replacing the actual R&P and reusing brgs. LockRite (mine) is low miles also.
    The rear will be the full boat, brgs and all (185Km).:D
