    Great! You're lucky, all the ones I've seen around here have always had some kind of damage. I'd actually like to step up to a 14bolt, or maybe dual 60's front and rear before I really break anything.

    I figgured that you would have it in by now. [​IMG]
    Here is that part # for the hub nut socket.
    It is a KD tool # 2770. I think it was $30 at NAPA.
    You and I will have to take a trip to the hills and see what that wrecking yard has. With all the logging outfits in that area there is bound to be something in there we can use.
    And being that it is way off the beaten path we might get a good score. [​IMG]
