New drive shaft made, and installed. Shortened the limit strap about 1.5". It spun where it was at full droop, but figured it can't hurt. The yoke is so big it rubs my front shifter when I'm in 4 high so I might have to adjust that linkage too.

Pile of broken yokes...hope I'm done adding to it

Got some new to me goodies today....



Fox 2.5, 16" shocks to replace my 2.0's that are about maxed out

Also I'm ditching my long Chevy 63's for some bastard explorer leafs. Gonna be able to move the rear shackle forward about 6" and give me a better departure angle.

I'm gonna run it asis, just tweek it a little. I still plan to back half it sometime, then it will be links and 2.0's. I just don't want to spend the money yet.

Lol, just gotta pace myself. The ranger should only be a few hours. The other one, well the wife needs to come up with build money before I really get moving. I told her if she wanted one she had to pay for it like I did mine.
