Put the axle underneath it today and ran into the first problem, the UCA mounts are to far forward. I'll have to cut them off and turn them around.. In the morning lol

Well she's rolling again. Had to send the btf cover back. It was for a d44 not a d44a. Should have it tomorrow, hopefully before I take off for Panama City!
Got some new stickers and took the scenic rout home.
