    Let's get ready to rumble. Well the race is on between Mudzer(Neil) and myself. I have ordered my doubler and it should be here by the end of the week(I hope). We will see who has their truck on the road first. /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    Hey,
    I think Neil has two secret weapons that you lack...
    1. The best tranny jack in the world
    (So cool it might as well be chromed...bling bling)
    2. Me...with such superpowers as the ability to point and laugh at Neil when he drops a wrench in 5 gallons of gear oil.
    What do you say about that ? eh ?

    I'm just racing to get this thing together in time to go. I got it painted over the weekend now I just need to swap the body bushings and start putting it back together.

    Well,

    More problems. I will need to install the 2" body lift, and probably clearance the floor somewhat. I am not sure about the driveline angles, they dont seem too bad. We will see. Tonight, the body lift goes on and finally I can get the transfercases where they belong.

    The Dual Case is bolted to the tranny in the truck, but sitting a little lower than I expected.

    More news at 10:00. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Neil,
    As moderator of the Midwest K5 Thing, can't you add to the rules that all posts must be written using punctuation ? Or maybe a community standard of writing posts that make sense to others besides the author ? I think this would benefit everyone here and help with some confusion.

    Neil its time to turn up the heat. After my minor set back today, I now have the doubler kit in hand. The 203 is rebuilt and ready to go. Tomorrow I should be taking the 205 out and modifing the shift rails and start fitting the 203 to the NV4500. Check out the pic Doubler Kit /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    IT'S TIME TO KICK IT UP A NOTCH!! BLAMMM!
    Well I didn't get as much done as I had hoped to, but I did get the Doubler Kit installed in the NP203. I got the NP205 out of the Blazer (without the use of the Ultimate Tranny Jack). I got the Doubler/NP203 installed. Check it out: Doubler Project

    I got the front crossmember in, the gearbox back on, about 5 min from having the front axle cleaned and ready to reasemble, and got almost half of the body bushings on thanks to a little help from Jeff.

    It sounds like almost everyone is under the gun to get ready in time for the run. I hope we all make it!?!

    Under the gun? I haven't even found the gun yet! I have yet to even TOUCH my truck. Still have to get the 42's on, fenders "trimmed", install the WTO hydro assist, OBA install, and a possible twin stick on the 205. Sounds like I should get busy... /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    Neil, it only took 2.5 hours to assemble the 203/Doubler and that includes taking pictures and cleaning up the shop so I could find the workbench. It did take a little longer than that to get the 205 out. I had to wait for the tires to deflate so the jack would reach. I took the 205 completely apart today after church. I have started the modification to the shift rail and will drill and tap the "plug" holes. One major set back though. I leave for Lincoln, NE tomorrow at 5:30 AM and won't be home to work on it till next weekend. You may have enough time to catch up.Good Luck /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    And I suppose you didn't take the NP205 with you to work on in the hotel room?

    Oh, and to all KC Metro area pedestrians and drivers - be on the lookout for a white mini van that drives from shoulder to shoulder. Driver is known to whip out his "shaft" while driving and talking on a cell phone.... /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif

    In reference to Layne looking at his Doubler and talking to me on the cell phone.
