    Yee freaking haw!! Got the CV 1350 shaft in from JEsse. Man this thing is BAD A$$. The The welding the perches was a breeze. The E-brake cable is not long enough to hook up. Will have to move the bracket or make some sorta extention.
    But on test drive no vibrations, everything was good to go.
    Now I just need to bleed the brakes some more and adjust the rear brakes a little more and re-gear the front with 4.56's and I'll be good to go.
    Thanks rocko, rene, and everyone else that helped me out here. It was truely great to be ridin in the truck again this morning. Other than the new little noise I can hear coming from the Top of the T-case or tranny thru the floor board.

    Hey Brandon, good to hear it went well. I'm sorry your news about the swap is so over shadowed by recent events. I know it was a big deal for you to do this yourself, especially the welding. Congrats on the swap!
