    It was a fun thread to follow leading up to BB15, so let's do it again for 2016. Post up your BB16 build goals and/or progress.

    Get a trans in this thing first.

    I would like front and rear tow points, bump stops, limiting straps, rock sliders and lighting.

    Doubt any of it will happen.

    Yeah this will be a new experience for me, having all that sheet metal and all.
    Nevermind the wheel base!

    Just hoping I don't kill the rear driveshaft

    Yeah I'm looking at mine. I might put 1350 ends on my factory shaft and use it as a trail shaft.
    But I have to drive mine home

    Is yours 1 or 2 piece? I did fine with my 2 piece shaft for 2 years until we ran Holy Cross. Dinged mine up on the creek crossing; would have been fine if I'd waited for a spotter.... :doah: Didn't notice until we jumped on the highway headed home. I dinged it up again on the exit of Steel Bender but it didn't throw it off balance luckily.

    I want to relocate the carrier bearing so that I have the same angle I did on my K5. The K5 had the rear axle moved back about 4" and with the SYE the angle was pretty good for lack of vibration and I never had trouble dinging it up like I have the crew cab.

    Pretty sure that is what I have, don't remember. I get a slight vibration at 75+

    Looks like I might be doing the same. Going to try my best to get a trailer.

    This is a single. But I have always had 2 driveshafts, so it would be normal for me. Driving it out, then swap. No biggie

    I will probably relocate the carrier bearing once I change the ends

    I should add a rest bumper and possibly spare drive shafts to the list. I would like my interior put back together and a paint job, even if it is something cheap.

    If you have a carrier bearing then you have a 2 piece shaft.
