    Donald you've got a TH350/NP203 right? I've got one rear shaft for that stock setup, so I'll bring it just incase you or CB may need one. I need it for a later project but I'll bring it for a backup for yall.

    My list:

    1- Finish grinding, sand blasting and painting the new hummer rims.

    2- Then dismount the tires I PAID to have mount before Tellico

    3- Mount the tires on the beadlocks

    4- Swap the new alternator in to the truck.

    5- Alot of 'other' junk...

    But the weather has turned real nice for working on the truck

    Repair tail light wiring
    Pray front shaft doesn't give out because the guy welded it off center slightly which explains the vibe I get on the highway
    Try to get running better. I think I need a new harmonic balancer.
    Repair fog light wiring for the NIGHT RUN!!!
    Repair oil leak from engine AND hard line to my gauge.
    Find a body bushing and retainer so my front bumper doesn't flex all over the place like it was at DPG.

    Thanks brother!!! :D
    But, the 203 busted 5 days before ECBB05 last year and I had to put in another 350 Turbo and convert to a 208. That's one reason I was a bit timid last year. Test drove it on the way there!!!
    Had to get a P/U driveshaft cut down to fit. I've got another K-10 one but it will have to wait. The dent is right at the bottom u-joint, so it ain't as likely to twist up as it would nearer the middle.

    Thanks again brother............you the best!!! :bow: :bow: :bow:
