Should ask if your new employer will sponsor your truck if you do a full vehicle wrap with their name and catalog on it

as i was glancing through your pics it looks like you left the stock lower coil mounts on top of the radius arms? if so that is why your springs look fawked.. they are sitting like / \ because the spring mounts on the axle are wider than those on the cherokee.. but i could be wrong.. any way it looks good..

n8 got the remainder of the hubs out, there were flat spots on the outer piece that the lockout slides into, all the snap rings were out. today was turkey day so tomorrow if time allows we're going to put factory style spicer joints in his shafts
