    He\'s an update (with a pic)

    So, I finally drove my Sub to work last Monday. I haven't driven that thing since December (when the T-case went out). I could bearly get into 3rd gear on the freeway. My speedo was showing 45mph and my GPS was showing 62mph. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif This weekend I dropped the D60 and 14 bolt off to get the 4.88' installed. That will make all the differance in the world. I also forgot how bad bias tires flatspot. It must have took 4 miles to get the flatspots to go away. I kind of miss my TSL Radials.
    The Cross over steering was feeling good. I can't wait to add the hydro assist. I've heard good things about that upgrade.
    I still need to fab up a twin stick shifter for my doubler. I crawled under the Sub and shifted it into 2wd lo and drove around a bit to see how it felt. I was relieved to see the new t-case set up was working. This was the first time I ever rebuilt a t-case.
    Can't wait to get this bad boy on the rocks.

    Here's some pics of how the Sub is sitting right now:

    I have to put the tires underneath even though the axles aren't in because of the neighbors. They like to call the police on me.

    I had to take a second look at those pics! I wasn't sure what wasgoing on with the lowrider on mudders.

    Can't wait to hear how well she runs when the axles are back under her.

    Keep it up, if I hit the lottery I'll be right up there with ya. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    The only update is I'm still waiting for my axles to be ready for pick up. They're supposed to be ready this week. I can't wait to feel the 4.88's. A friend of mine just picked up a 32 spline front output shaft for my 205 yesterday and I got a had a 1410 yoke put on the front of the 14 Bolt. In two weeks I should have some more done.
