    This sucks.

    I am so busy at work that I haven't even driven the buggy in 1 1/2 months.
    All I have done is look at it sitting in the corner pouting.

    That is last time I got to actually use it.
    Although in Early June I drove it 4 miles to the local 4 wheel drive show where I proceeded to try a front wheel drive burnout :D When I hit second gear the drivers side stub shaft broke which swelled the spindle and ruined the warn drive flange.:doah:
    All of this was in front of a nice big crowd of people:haha:

    So not only do I not get to use it but it is still kinda broken since the Yukon stub shafts that I am putting in are about a 1/16" to long and need to be cut down on the end. They don't let the "hub" cap fit tight to the face of the bearing hub.

    Yeah I ran the chevy yukon stubs and had to cut 5/8" out of them to fit the ford outers. Then I bought the ford stubs thinking it would be easier and they were still too long with my flanges, had to shave them down like you described. Glad I paid an extra $7 for the ford ones :\
