    That sticker on the tool box that reads

    “TRUCKS ARE RED & TRACTORS ARE GREEN”

    Made me smile. I am sure @Comatose will approved of the sliders being Red & the skids being black

    Now they're both Orange!

    Anytime Jim. Like I said, if you need help on the install let me know. That steel is definitely serious!

    I posted this over in the Maryland thread but............

    So now that I've had some down time I just wanted to thank Jerry @Montauk17 for meeting me this morning to sell me his TCase skid. I left the house at 9 am and we we BSing at 11. Then it was off to @Mobtown Offroad to meet Joe (also met Bob) and pick up my other two skids. I stopped earlier to pick up some BLO but since it is seasonal they were out. Not knowing what Joe drank I took a 12 pack of Corona Familar. I really like it so....... while I was admiring the shop (aka B-52 sized hangar) I started asking questions about sliders and the angles. Joe explained he had a set thatsomeone cancelled and they were nearly exactly how I wanted. It was much sooner than I expected to buy a set for sure, especially so close to the skids and right after Xmas. Joe made me an offer I couldn't refuse those. While I was there Joe checked his orders and saw he had a IFS Skid for Jim @Jim=TRD Off Road (who I just so happen to meet with the other day for lunch with his son Andrew @Grizz4x4, who is dropping off my OEM tubes to another member in SC) so we threw that in the bed too. Just as I was leaving, Jim @pdenajim called me and asked if I would bring a Hi Lift Jack Slider Adapter back up with me. So back in I went. Joe stocks them and Jim just went online to place the order. Then it was time to head up the road. It was 2 PM now. Jim asked me to call him when I got on the Bay Bridge so he knew when to leave work. Our destination was the Harbor Freight in Glen Burnie where Ritchie Hwy intersects I-695. Jim literally arrived seconds after me. It was spooky. So more BSing commenced of course. I showed Jim how the heavy truck hauling a huge ass front end loader must have had an open fuel tank, and the entire front of my truck, and most of the passenger side was covered in fuel oil. While we were talking I said how I had the other Jim's skid plate and he suggested since he lived closer to him, why not let him deliver it. We called him and I let the two Jim's (LOL) figure it out. So since Jim needs to paint it, and wont have that done while his son is home I offered to help install it if he needed it. Priority though at the time was to get that fuel oil off. So I headed south at Jim's suggestion to a car wash. $12 and 45 min later and I had it all off. Jim is so cool, he followed me there. We BS'd the whole time. It was finally time to head home to my Funny Little Honey. I was tired and hungry! It was a 9 hour, 260 mile day. I was spent.

    However, what made it all worth it was I finally got to meet Jerry, and Joe, and got to see Jim again. And I got to do a favor for Jim.

    You guys areall so great!!! You make this forum great!

    Also... took the truck out for a road test after had all the work done on it and I have a vibration at 40mph. It is obvious that it comes from the drive shaft, but what could it be? I put the yokes back on the same spot they were from one to another. For now there are 2 options. 1st its the center bearing. The one I got dont have direction arrows and could be on the wrong side. 2nd, maybe there is a dent on the driveshaft, but I didn't used the vise on it.

    Any thoughts? Tomorrow i'll be troubleshooting that. Can't wait to use the truck!

    So all the U-joint endcaps are lined up perfectly from the Transmission to the diff? If so did you mark the yoke and the DS to make sure it went on in the right spot. If not you could have it 180 out still. When they balance them they do that with everything where it is installed and just a spline off or 180 out can through it off balance.

    Did you figure it out? I just got home. I can dig it up tomorrow at work. It’s the same u joint as the rear except the grease zerk is in the center instead of the end of one cap.
