Last week i did some stuff to my truck.  Made a battery tray, fixed my drivers side window since it kept coming off the track, and plated both side of the frame were my steering box mounts.  pictures to come soon.

I did a little reinforcing for my rock sliders.  I only had time to get one done today.  The other 3 i will try to make tomarrow.  Cut a piece of 2x2 to fit ontop of one of the braces attaching to the frame.

I ordered longfields today.  don't have enough for the new cromos so i ordered just the heat treated ones and sent out a couple spares to them.  I might be ordering a 4.7 gearset later today.  I reinforced my front crossmember on the passenger side today.  Will see if i can do the same on the drivers side, the pitman arm might be in the way.  Won't be able to do that untill the week after next.  Next week we have off cuzz of spring break.

We should do a test run at Prarie right before memorial.  Test out your rig when it is done.  this sucks.  Price of a 4.7 gearset went up to $429. Thats $30 from just 2 days ago.  That sucks, i decided to order the gears 2 days to late.

Gears and Longs came in the mail.  Next week we will hopefully install the gears.  then maybe the week after i will switch both axle housing for the clearanced ones and put the Longs in.

Started the 4.7 gearset installation.  I only had 3 hours to work on it today at school.  We got it apart, the case clearanced, and some bearings pressed on.  Then i had to leave for Golf.  James started putting it together after i left so hopefully we can finish it tomarrow.  It isn't as hard as we thought it was gonna be.  Clearancing the case was pretty easy too.

Got the 4.7 gearset installed.  It is sooooo much slower then before.  I love it already.  It wasn't hard to install at all.
