    I got the D70 installed last night. W/ my old rims the tires stick WAY out the side compared to what they used to!! I was just too lazy to demount the tires last night and mount them on the new Hummer rims. Now I get to start installing the 52's in the front and the D60!! /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif
    Oh, and if anyone else is considering this swap, turns out a D70 must be about 4 or 5 inches longer from the center of the axle to the yoke, because now my driveline is way to long...again... crap.

    Well, as soon as I get the front suspension in and the front D60, then I have to get the $$ for all the steering parts and then put all that in, then I will test her out!!! Worst thing that happens w/ the welded carrier is that it explodes and ruins the rearend, no biggie... /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
