    Got the front shaft built today. Just got to pick up ujoints after I build the rear tomorrow. Then I jump straight into the ladder bars. Then exhaust and oh around Monday or Tuesday install the lockers, hopefully. Anybody up to give a guy a hand?

    Hate to ask this question but oh well, Is anyone from around the Jacksonville area driving to Autumn Thump in a diesel that is not pulling a rig and would have room for two and wouldn't mind pulling one, will have an open seat once we get there. Will split gas or what ever. Really want to break the tahoe in on this ride. Will be the first time she's hit the trails around here since the $10,000's worth of upgrades.:D

    The things on the to do list are the easy things. I'll pretty much finish those up today. It's just the tow rig problem that's getting me. And I have the money now to buy a rig but you can't find what I want around here. The closest ones are in Texas. Unless ya'll know some one with a 2000-2003 ford excursion LIMITED with the 7.3 diesel?;)

    I know where a 2wd one is for around 13,000 but I don't think its the limited. Its got cloth interior but loaded.

    I know a guy who has an 04 D max for sale. Pretty good looking truck in my opinion too.




    If mine isn't gone by the time the thump rolls around I would be more than happy to tow it up there as long as you have a trailer to put it on.


    I wis hI was in town or I would come over and give you a hand but seeing as I am still up in Virginia, not able too.

    Are you going to be done here by then? If so will you have room for the wife and I? Let me know. I have a trailer. Finshing welding up the rear shaft right now. Picking up the ujoints tomorrow. Will probably start on the lockers as tonight. Got to wait till my 35 spline spider gears come in b before I can do the front. Should be here around tuesday or so. Hopefully I can get it in by then. If not I just won't have a locker in the front for this trip. Let me know man. Will be more than glad to pay ya.

    How far is it from Jacksonville? Thanks for the reply man. Got the shafts finished, just need to put in the ujoints. Starting on the ladder bars in a few. Should be ready to roll if 79stomper gets back in town.
