    Thanks guys.

    Tried twice to do it myself, but couldn't get the holes to line up for the center pin. Said, "F'it" and took my truck to a local shop and had them install them.

    Thanks guys for the comps :thumbsup:

    Steve and Steve it's on like Donkey Kong! See you XXL's tomorrow!

    Brain those sliders look bad ass!

    The problem i was having with the aligning of the holes was the the AAL would shift/slip/move causing my center guide to be off as soon as i had it all compressed enough to where i could and add the new center pin. So i would have to uncompress and start over. Was a PITA!

    After talking with Chris4x4 he said to just get a hammer and start hitting your center guide (1/4 socket extension at least 6 inches long) until they align. Being as i was frustrated and tired i didn't give any thought to that. Hope that helps bud!
