    Well....I got off my dead arse and got the 5.13's in the rear...
    It went pretty quick except for setting the bearing preload.
    I spent about 2 hours setting the gears..trying to get them as perfect as possible.

    I dropped the front driveshaft...and took it for a spin...
    so far...I'm happy as hell!!!! :D :D

    Now that the rear is complete and broke-in...

    I'll be starting on the front tonight.
    Man...that's alot of work... :crazy:

    It is a lot of work, and 'perfect' is the key word. 'Close enough' for gear sets just won't last, I know from experience.

    I need to get off my as* too as anything with the word 'work' in it I tend to shy away from here recently! :D
