ARE YOU READDDYYY!? well its 99% done, and i have stolen it from them. the only thing left is the front driveshaft is being shortened, so its not in right now, and the transfercase shifter is being extended for the body lift. I drove it last night and today, and starting late last night and all today i started getting driveline vibrations that are probably being caused by axle wrap(3in block in the rear) that they will be working on that when i return it to them this weekend. AS for pictures, it is raining right now so unless it clears up in the next hour you ladies will have to wait untill tommrow, but dont worry, its worth the wait ;)

Yes both front and rear got regeard to 4.88s. I never even felt the True Trac in the back at all when I test drove it. It works great in my opinion.

And yes, he's right....it's definitely worth the wait for the pics. Everyone that's come to the shop in the past month thinks it's bad as hell :thumbsup:

Wow, looks good. Pretty tall for my tastes, but the fab work looks real good. Are your going to change your steering at all, i.e. hi-steer?

yeah its definately tall, but i love it. I need to make moves to widen my stance i.e. wider tires/wheels and less backspacing. and yes high steer is in the future, when the money comes. probably wont get any flex shots untill after this weekend, they tested it on a forklift when they had it in the shop but only took pictures on camera phones, but it was nasty.

Did you say you were still waiting on a driveshaft or are you going to have one made locally?
