    Got the steering box replaced on the Yukon, along with a new drop pitman arm. Boy howdy did that need to be done! It steers almost as nice as a truck still with its factory steering in it. Tomorrow I'll pull the front driveshaft and install the flange output on the tcase so I can measure for a new CV style shaft, which I'll order on Thursday.

    Everytime I go to Moab I smack the rear yoke on something. 35's and a 10.5 AAM, it has like 5 inches of clearance.

    Maybe I should get the Jimmy out and drive it, just to check that everything is working.

    Moab thrash what is that?

    Oh ya 2015 when I looked like a homeless person wrenching on my junk the first year. The day before to get more stuff done at the campground avoiding the hosts to convince them I wasn't "working"

    IIRC it has better clearance than a stock 12 bolt.

    Nothing fun or exciting:

    cut the perches off the rear and rotated the pinion angle down. Had a hell of a time getting the axle recentered
    Pulled the front leaf spring and hole sawed the old bushing out, squished a new one back in. that also was not fun
