This weekend I got to pull all the trim to remove my headliner. Was able to drop the sunroof assembly, not easy alone as the kink in my neck will protest. Worked on the remolding of the Durango top hat to allow it to fit with out cutting my hood. Got the replacement sunroof assembly back up by my self. Worked on my TB mod. Overall a good weekend.

Thanks I will start soaking everything tonight. I don't have the cv style shaft but I already pulled mine because my vc is blown out and I'm planning on throwing an np231 at it the same weekend I do the lift.

I'm definitely gonna try to avoid it. Is there anything that would be an indicator I might need it, or are there any parts I can plan to change ahead of time to avoid needing the t case drop?

Make sure the pinion angles are good after the lift. You can get adjustable control arms and not need the transfer case drop. The cam bolts up front on the lower control arms might give you enough adjustment to not need front adjustables. I had to get rear upper adjustables at 4" of lift to not drop my transfer case.

Thanks man, that's good to know for sure. I was planning on upgrading all 8 ca's from the start, I was just thinking I might be able to put them put on the back burner for now. Ill definitely be moving em up the list of priorities if they will make it so I don't need the t case drop.

If you're going to run stock control arms, your pinion angles will be fine. Axle placement will be off though. You'll have the axles pushed in toward the center of the vehicle.

That's kinda what I was thinking would happen. Hopefully it won't take me too long to get all the loot together to get the ca's replaced. This has definitely changed my plan for wheels and tires at this point but I think it will be worth it in the long run.

I hate when old people poke me at weddings, point and whisper, "You're next." So I've started doing the same thing to them at funerals

Almost lost it this morning. Was sitting at a stop light when this older Honda accord cane flying through a stop light, hopped a curb and buried itself in the side of a church. Missed me by about a foot. I was too shaken up to get any pics of the car while it was still in the building but here's the aftermath
