    It went in my garage around midday Monday and I drove it out on Friday. Monday and Tuesday were full days in the garage and Wednesday, Thursday, Friday were about 3-4 hours days due to working 12 hour night shifts.

    I have a 60" :D. It was just on my rack I made for my camper. The 48" is for my work truck and was near the truck.

    So my rear end is up once again... This time it isn't due to a lunchbox locker install :spy:

    My truck decided it wanted to sit on blocks because my rear leaves would flex and would still be sitting on the jack even with the jack stands fully extended.

    BIG thanks to Slodgetto and Ripcord for helping on this endeavor.

    Finally got around to installing my 4.88s with some much needed help.
    Took us several hours to knock this out (we got lucky) which was pretty good considering Slodgetto took several days to regear his diffs.

    The patterns.
    Drive...

    Next on the list is to install the front locker at a later date.

    Making my skid plate/belly pan so I can finally make my driveshaft.
    [​IMG]
    1/4" plate with supports :cool:
    Still need to put support for overkill factor. I've got some 2"x2"x1/4" angle for a center brace and thinking about 1x1x1/8" angle for the sides.

    I just need to go and get more welding wire. :(

    Got my stock driveshaft up and marked where I need to cut. Thinking of just getting shielding gas to make the pretty welds.
