I havent pulled it yet, doin that today after school, hopefully i will be able to finish it real quick so i can get the exhaust done and drive it.
as far as the exhaust, the cherry bombs sit right next to the t-case, one is farther back than the other, i dont know what it would entail to pipe it myself.

tighten up the pitman arm tool on the arm. Hammer down on the bottom of the arm where it connects to the drag link. Tighten the tool up some more and hammer down on the arm. If you dont hammer down on the arm you will break the tool.

got the gearbox installed, not like i planned though, i ended up jacking up the front axle then aligning the pitman arm from there, but somewhere along the line, i messed up the drag link, so i need to get that fixed now.

EDIT: Specifically its the joint that connects pitman arm to the drag link, its got some play in it now.

That's normal any time your doing that, gotta "beat" those parts loose to get them out. Might as well replace some while your at it, tie rods, etc. Your probably gonna need an alignment anyway, do it right the first time
