Just got a call from A&B Machine, looks like my rods are about ready they just need me to drop of my ends so they can double check them for fit.

eventually the bed is coming off and be all tubed, so doing these for now to rid of plastic tails, and then I will still sell them when pull the bed.

But why I seem to have your attention, perhaps you can tell me why there was a 1/2 ton axle shaft in a 3/4 ton axle that you sold as "ready to run" and with the pinion fucked as I'd asked you before?
Do you happen to have the proper shaft for it and perhaps give it to me as so I can reassemble it properly?

Feel free to pm if so as be no issue to stop by as I still remember where you live. Thanks

Those seats look like crap. You should have spent some money and got good ones.

seats are awesome and I'm comfy when I sit in it and make my test drive "vroom, vrooms!" hoping to have it done and up to R&V for Collin's run.
Yeah had to go a little cheap on the seats this time around as I have a little work yet to get it rolling.

got the rear bumper on and bolted up and painted. front 1/4" wheel spacers installed, steering test fitted, not happy with it but it will hold me over for now, will end up running 1.5" dom and bungs and call it a damn day. So just have to pick up the rest of the brake parts and install and hope it works out. Rear driveshaft was made up today as well. Be adding a sye later so will get new shaft then as well. Also front shocks installed as well.
