Those who have done this install please please please rate the difficulty and your experiences with the install.
I'm sure, as with most builds, you have to look at as many small accomplishments. Take it one step at a time, I'm sure it'll turn out easier than you thought. Those instruction things confuse things.. Throw em away. Lol
Good luck. Keep us posted

Do NOT throw them out. You will be completely lost. Follow them letter for letter and you will be fine. It took me and a buddy about 36 hours of actual work time over the course of 2 weekends to finish mine. But, I made the mistake of not reading over the tools list to know exactly what drill bits I needed, broke a lot of rusted bolts, and left some parts at my apartment which was an hour away from the garage we were working in. So, take all the extra trips out and we probably could have done it in about 18-20 hours. It is kind of a pain in the *** to install, but be patient and only worry about one thing at a time.

DW can occur on stock vehicles with a solid front axle.

What adapter?

I couldn't find mention of an "adapter" on their page.

If you have the Rzeppa style CV joint on either or both ends of the front drive shaft, then yes, it (the drive shaft) will need replaced, as well as the yoke(s) at either Rzeppa end.

Models equipped with CV style front driveshaft may result in driveshaft vibration. If this occurs, replacing the driveshaft, axle yoke and / or transfer case yoke will need to be performed to rid the vehicle of driveline vibration.
No mention of an adapter of any type. However, as Narn said, if you have the rzeppa (CV style) front shaft, you will need to replace it with a double cardon shaft.

The are beef. I pulled out the upper a arm and was like damn. This kit really impressed me with the quality of all of the components. I was so upset that I didn't get my arms. I want to see them. Tomorrow can't come soon enough.
