im not at all a mechanic, but the front drive shaft was spinning the gears, but then theres something about 6 inches long with teeth on one end that was missing so the actuator was moving the fork over to put it in 4wd, but the other piece wasnt there so it didnt turn the cv's. dont know really how to explain it but if you take out your front diff i can show it to you lol. anyway i went and tried it. freaking amazing. i crawled up a dirt mound and in regular 4hi, punched it and of course only 1 tire spins, then i locked the arb and both spin, nice! but very difficult to turn even on loose dirt

I wouldn't recommend turning with the locker engaged. It puts way too much stress on cv's causing them to break.

No, not yet. My friend sent me the passenger side accidentally. So he is sending the driver side. I did happen to replace my torn UCA boot. Bought a few spares since they were so cheap. I don't know how much longer I want to keep funding this IFS. A SAS is looking a lot brighter for my future once January hits. I am hoping by this time next year, I'll have most of the parts to finally make the conversion happen.
