Nice John. And for the JKS question, quit being gay and use some muscle or a BFH.

I know all about breaking front driveshafts and wheeling in 2 low.





How difficult was it to take of your front driveshaft? Mine blew up and covered some of the bolts which made it a pain in the *** to remove.

i just watched that vid in ur build thread last night. i got bored and went through a lot of it
i couldnt get the bolts off at the pinion, but i could get them off at the tcase. luckily i had destroyed it enough that i just gave it a yank and it seperated and i was able to remove it without removing the pinion bolts
