    YAAAAHoooooooo[​IMG]
    I drove my rig on it's first 20 miles after my GreenHorn Ring & Pinion swap to 4.11s this weekend.
    Everything seamed to be running smooth!![​IMG] No howling or crunching or snaping or banging so I must have done it right[​IMG] so far anyway!![​IMG]
    and thoes 4.11 with 33"ers really lurch my rig forward, kinda felt like I had it in 4Lo when it was in 2Hi[​IMG].
    Now I just need to get the miles on both front and rear! I did put it in 4Hi and drove on the street, just took the corners slow cuz that new Power-Lock is supper tight and had my front locked, had all the carictoristics of a locker. I know of a dirt road near by so gonna spend a few hours driving on that in 4Hi to break it all in.......
    I just had to share my VICTORY!!!!!![​IMG]

    And thanks again to ALL here that helped me out the last 4 weeks!!!!! You all ROCK!

    you can repay the K5 gods by helping me do mine. actually, someone told me i can adjust the lash(?) to get rid of some slop i have?
    if not, i'll be re-gearing soon.

    lash = Backlash
    it is the amount of slop/play in your ring & pinoin. So if you have your rig in nutral and try to rotate your driveshaft it should move just a c hair, if there is allot of movement then yes you can tighten that by moving the carrier via shims.....
    I work for beer so no problem![​IMG]

    yeah, i swung by goldrush's work on friday. he did the neutral / driveline thingy, and told me what it was. he said i can live with it for quite a while, but i figure since you're fresh from kickin R&P ass, now is the time to monkey with it.
    i'm trying to find your posts about it, so i can prep.

    Steve, how many beers did you drink after you came back from your test drive? Like you didn't drink one before you left, but that is beside the point right now. [​IMG]

    I did do a celibration dance and screamed YYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO as loud as I could followed by a buch of YES ...Yes &gt;&gt;&gt;YES YESS YEEEESSSSSS!!! then sat down on my okee chair (old Blazer seat mounted to milk crate) tossed back a few and just looked and stared at my rig.... Oh ya than I put my sticker on the winsheild I got from Jeff. It says "BUILT NOT BOUGHT" in the same font that LedZeppelin uses, very cool I'll get some pics up on Zing for you too see. I also put CK5 sticker on the front of my rig right above my roller fairlead. Looks cool, i think anyway........
