    Do they (the 14ff 5.38 gears) still have the little machining marks where the front pinion bearing rides?

    Looks like they do from the pics. Did they include any special setup instructions?

    Rockwells are overrated, these are the reason I aked you about dodge shafts, those 4.10's couldnt break a u joint but now I'm thinking 35 spline outers and see if anything bad happens. Ryan I have no idea what you mean but can take closer pics tonite

    I think the only reason I said that was because you took the center line at Daniel at full throttle and I had to sprint up it to direct you.............

    You just went to the wrong part of Cali. I have always had a soft spot for 29 Palms. Small town base, lots of places to play in the mountains and in the desert. Been to Pendleton a few times and never really cared for the way it was setup with the different areas.

    I don't even know whats in the ten bolt, haven't popped the cover yet.:D:D
    I need to soon, well as soon as I get some flat tops.
