    I did a search but I guess I didn't phrase it correct because I keep getting the same posts which have nothing to do with the topic.

    Anyway, I'd like to attempt my 14 FF Detroit install this weekend so I can get ready for some wheeling. Anyone have any helpful hints or a detailed how to? The locker came with instructions but I'd like to read all I can before I attempt it so I know exactly what I'm going to run into.

    No problem, just need a decent impact to remove the ring gear bolts. Its easy and straight forward.... good luck /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Took me around two hours to complete. I love mine. This may sound stupid but those little washers that are on the stock spiders... ya know the thin ones.... leave all of those off.
