His issue was the sharp edges. Above 15mph that plastic isn't gonna matter one bit lol.

Spent some time touching up the front trimming, still rubs in weird positions but will do til I put the adjustables on. Finally got the new front ds in. Bolts were a pita for the connection to tcase so looking forward to that when I do the swap.

What did you do with the Treadwrights you had? Feel like slapping a shipping sticker on them and sending them my way?

My skid plate is being held on upfront by zip ties currently lol. But it's in.

I may or may not have gassed it on some corners and made some noise.

I see why v8s didn't come with 2wd lol

1slocamaro was kind enough to send me some 242 linkage, ordered some grommets so once those get here i'm gonna get the linkage hooked up. Of course the transmission output seal decided to start leaking, so need to take the tcase back out and replace that (ugh). Then going to ditch the stock skid (since I need to replace the nutserts and have to cut off the bolt heads to get it out) and order an IRO belly skid.

Hunting a 44a to swap in and then time to lock it!
Haven't put in the spacers yet..shame on me, or the front LCA's.

Still on the long term to do list is an hpd30 swap. But rear is taking priority obviously.
