awesome find. My last build was something of the same style, buy, sell, buy, sell than finally obtain what I wanted. Keep it up.

I made a backup of the .apk and just turned off automatic updating. You shouldn't have to turn off auto update for it as its named something completely different now in the play store. The only downside is the ad doesn't always show up correctly when you open it from the app, so most the time i have to click the view in browser option, however its a great easy way to sift through posts and be the first notified when something you want comes up. Everything else has worked great for me on all my phones. Below is a dropbox link for a backup of mine.

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...ifica_3.28.apk

So now how do i use this dropbox download and get the app on my phone?
BTW AMAZING build! you are doing a killer job! Keep the Updates up!

Thanks! Easiest way would probably be to just copy and paste the link into an email send it to your phone and open it from there. It should work on any android phone.

This is where we ran into our first problem, whoever built these axles before relocated the front track bar mount and built a pretty nice box and moved it up a little bit i assume to keep it off rocks. So my track bar was too long by about 4 inches.

Finishing up the diff covers... Decided to get my Picasso on and bought some black acrylic model plane paint to accent them. Also applied a semi gloss clear coat over the top of them.

While i was at the junkyard grabbing some parts for the 8.8 parking brake, i picked up a york compressor and a couple different seals mounts etc... The pick-n-pull near me had a half off memorial day weekend sale, so i got the compressor for 25.00, random parking brake parts for 5.00.

I am fascinated at the deals you've made. Especially the axles.

Picked up some marine trailer LED lights off a semi truck site for like 20 dollars or so. I went with these because you didn't have to cut into the body, just three holes and self threading screws.
What website did you get these off of? i've really been wanting to pick some up and you can't beat that price!

Talk about a score on those axles! Just curious, have you done anything about the front track bar yet?
