I think Charlie's getting the clear dana 30 cover to watch the white letters and gears rotate.

Yea, I'm all about that bling...


And Andy at CRS is selling me a complete tie rod for 25 shipped, so I'm not ordering the BDO tie rod anymore.

Get that D30 in. Before you get in the situation when you can bend your stock tie rod you will get stock in just 2wd

Well time for an update. Nathan is officially the coolest person here. He hooked me up with a tie rod off his old axle. Got that put on and got the truck aligned, and it's great. Now I've gotta get some new bolts to hold the body side trackbar in the front so that it'll stop moving and clunking. The bolts that are vertical have seized in the nuts, so I'm gonna replace them with some grade 8er's. The ride is pretty rough being that I'm using the RE coils and V8 UC coils. Other than that I love all the looks that I get, and how I have to look down to order at fast food resteraunts.

It was rusted solid. I couldn't adjust it whatsoever to get it aligned.

So are you saying he has funny (in a limp wristed way) wheels?

I know the tie rod exsists but I don't know if it has been installed yet

Charlie, the tie rod was pretty clean for 180k miles huh? Gotta love a Arizona native vehicle.
