    hahaha I ain't holdin nothin LOL[​IMG]
    It is all done but not rollin quite yet. I still have to put the rear brakes back together and bolt up the driveshaft. I didn't bring new pics with me to work yet to share but I have them so will repost when they are ready. The rear whent very well, man that D60 Power-Lock is one HEAVY SOB!! prying that sucker out and pushing it in over and over was the hardest part. Sittin on your butt and lifting that sucker up into the housing made my arms numb[​IMG]
    I got the pinion depth right but the heel to toe on the drive side of the ring just wouldn't move out, it looked to be too far in or tward the carrier. the coast side was perfict and the install book I got from WCD said that I should pay more attention to the coast side of the mark than the drive, so with that in mind I left it like that. I did have to mess with the back lash quite a bit but got it to .008 like the front so I shoould be good to go!!
    I freakin hope so anyway.

    All and all it was ALLOT of work but I am SOOOOO gald I did it myself. Definitally gave me a clear understanding on how a differntial works and is setup!
    Thanks to you most of all for stickin with me thru the last 3 weeks!! You are welcome at my campfire ANYTIME!!

    Right AWN!!!!!![​IMG]
    Yeah, you dont need no freaking workout setup while working on these things. I got plenty of 12 once curls to hold me for a while and damn sure got plenty of bench pressing taking the damn carrier in and out, in and out. Oh, yeah, and smashed fingers.
    Hell, looks like Im gonna be a damn clutch professional before long. In the past 2 months, lest see, I've done one in a F'n Ranger, S-10 and now after yesterdays episode with the local construction site, my buds DG1500. His dumb ass was in 2nd while trying to be pulled from the rear. I said Ahhh[​IMG] "That aint gonna work bro." Anyhow he smoked the crap olla out of it. The best part was when pulling him out, while he had 2nd going the old Chevy still didn't hesitate to pull is ass write out of the rut I just made for him. OH, we had much Chevy kicks Dodge a$$ smack talk going on. [​IMG]

    So it looks like me old home built R&P's are holding up good. May the force be with yours as well.

    But the way BFG M/T's suck in Tennessee construction site mud.[​IMG] Told the wife I need to get TSL's, [​IMG] LMFAO!!! She thaught I said DSL's.
    [​IMG] She said no.

    Well, I did leave one detail out. We went up this pass, and he go stuck in my rut. Well, at the top of the pass there was no way out. So I hads to go back the way I came. Well, I couldn't there was a freggin hunk of.... Dodge in my way. So I had one other way and that was through this crazy straight down hill over rocks and right smack in the middle of this DEEP nasty sewer smelling mud. ANYWAY, crawled down this hill over rocks and plopped right into this @!#$%$^$&
    and sunk like a rock.I couldn't get no momentum. Thus the need for REAL mud tires. I had to get a burban to give me a little tug. Then I got the DG out.
    All in all, we had fun, but my ego was shinerbached a bit from getting submerged.[​IMG]
    [​IMG] but the crawling over the rocks down the hill more than over comped for the let down.

    Oh, the deal with the tires wont work. Got a little one on the way, and the BFG's are brand new. So I have a while before I get new ones. So I'll have time to save. But that will come after the 241 T-case fixed yoke conversion.
