    Looks good, I have that same bumper I'm picking up in a couple days. Pretty easy to install on your own with a floor jack or did you need an extra set of hands to do it?

    On the subject of alignment, I got my 33s to stop rubbing when I asked the alignment shop to put my caster at 3˚

    Working on replacing U joints, carrier bearing and transmission mount. I noticed in the double cardan there’s a slight catch in it, but only when it’s at the furthest point in the motion on one side. I plan on swapping it with my old pre-4wd conversion shaft, but even that one has a small catch in the farthest point in its range of motion on one side, but it’s feels better than what’s currently on the truck. Is it normal for it to have a slight catch or should it be perfectly smooth in all directions? Just seems odd both would do it.

    Thank you! Correct me if I'm wrong... I don't think it matters between ADD and manual.

    I'm fairly sure it doesn't. It's just the presence of a retaining nut deal to grapple the manual hub base vs a CV axle nut holding the whole shebang laterally.

    Most vehicles don’t experience rollovers. So you have a point

    I saw one when working by myself at the border of Colorado and Wyoming doing a sound survey in the middle of literally no where as part of a wind farm study. I turned around and got a change order and budget for another person to come with me. F that. LOL.
