    ..... but at least I finally got those axles under the truck.

    Now I just need to finish up a few things :hack: :grind: :weld: and see how it works. Nothing rubs anywhere right now but I can see that the first time I flex it I will lose some sheetmetal. Better to cut it off now.

    I'm always amazed at how much work a simple axle swap can be. Of course, moving the rear hanger added a bit more work to the job but jeeez it took me two full days!

    Looks great, I like how it sits level and the lift height is perfect with the tire size. :waytogo:

    Looks good, Goob:waytogo: I know how you feel, I just got the latest rear axle under my truck, and got to rebuild a set of drum brakes all by myself. I hate those SOB's. Sprained the livin' piss out of my ankle about a week and a half ago, but the Percocet's are takin' care of the pain just fine, but the spider's are startin' to piss me off:rotfl: :haha: :haha:
