    Anybody wanna run to the Springs Sunday with me to pick up my 14bolt? Might need a hand loading it, and somebody who can help me double check the gear ratio... I'm planning on leaving my campout at Estes Park around 8:00am, dropping the Blazer and camper off at my house and I'm supposed to be in the Springs at 2:00, so I figure I'll leave my house around 12:00...

    John, your going to need more than 2 people to pick up a 14, unless it's stripped of drum brakes. I'd say more like 4 people.

    I can give you a hand loading it up down here in the springs, but might not be able to go up to unload. What time and location?

    Turns out the guy has a forklift, so the Springs side should be OK. INTERCEPTOR is going down with me to make sure the gears are right, and when I get it back to Denver, I'll be taking it to Evergreen Monday where I have a friend with a 220 welder. Just gotta order the spring perches and shock tabs from DIY and I'll be ready to go baby.

    Don't forget to have the hubs machined down to 4.50" so that your 6 lug wheels can fit over them ;) (cost me $50 total when I did mine)

    Don't know, it's a long story, but essentially I HAD to have someone do the axle swap for me, and on the invoice they had "Hub machining: $50" I'de say just find a machine shop close to you and be friendly :D
