You are obviously NOT a very good mechanic... You must be very thorough when changing a tcase... Sometimes pulling the front end of to check the oil is required too.

Started to cycle the suspension last night looks like the 4 link will work out just fine should have more than enough room for the driveshaft.

Side note I'm going to need to run a carrier bearing how do I go about doing that correctly?

Looks good! Was thinking wide open design but why two yokes? Seems like more moving parts?
Is iy for high angles?

I'm gonna try and reserve judgement until you get further along with that tubework. In the meantime, your rig will henceforth be known as "Gonzo"

I'm not sure how I feel about it yet but I'm adding more today. Either way it feels good to be adding steel to the truck again rather than cutting everyday.
