I jammed on it all night. Exhaust fixxered up, I thought there was a problem with the hubs, but they were just bound due to the welded carrier. Just 2 brake lines in the am then bleed them out and I hope to drive it to the blessing with flareside.

Went to the blessing today, yeah 210 miles round trip with a 2.5 and 39.5 boggers.....wont do that again (my ears just quit ringing, and I need more power lol) few issues to work out. I need to install the shocks as they see still in the boxes (not that bad without them) anti wrap bar (under light acceleration the pinion yoke binds on the driveshaft) rear center limit strap due to binding at the tcase on the rear shaft, remove wheel weights (i just forgot) id like to balance the rear shaft too. Also I think I have a trans problem from the last wheeling trip.

But after wrapping up this morning running brake lines and going for a quarter mile test drive then road tripping it I'm a happy camper.

Won't drive it that far again, but at least I can say I did it and it made it

I will post a finished pic tomorrow
