    You just don't realize how fast their growing until you stop and take the time to look back:

    He's growing up very nicely, if I do say so myself [​IMG]

    Thanks guys, I appreciate the words of encouragement [​IMG]

    Right now I have 2 3/4ton diffs sitting in my garage: a D44 and a Corp 10 bolt. I'm in the process of moving just about everything off the Corp 10 to the D44. When I'm done, I think I will finally pronounce my truck finished! ....... on second thought, are we ever really finished with our trucks?? [​IMG]

    I guess the next upgrades will have to be an NP205 and a built TH400; but not until my current NP208 and TH350 blows up ..... hehehe ....

    Like the 'ole saying goes, If it breaks, Upgrade it!

    Never say finished, it upsets your blazer and it 'll intentionally brake something just to get your attention. It's much nicer to just buy nice things for it like on its birthday or for christmas... [​IMG]
