So finally got everything fixed, except the front driveshaft.I have to finish making the adapter to bolt to the t-case. I got some free time on Sunday so I took it out to see how did offroad, found a little mudpuddle.

I also have a whopping 17 sec video of me driving through the mud puddle.If someone wants to host it.

Here's some specs:

Dana 44 hi pinion
Ford 9"
4.56 gears
35x14.50x15 Nitto mud Grapplers
Isuzu Trooper steering box-mounts on top - inside frame rails.
Fabtech 4" lift coils and 3" rear springs

To do list: by christmas
Tossing the coils for coilovers
Front locker
and a couple of extra things

anyway to the pics. all comments welcome. Sorry so slow to update very busy at the shop. i will try and answer all Q's.
