What time and where? I'm in Salt Lake City until Wednesday night and have to leave for the 'Springs Thursday evening... but would love to grab a bite an a beer .

It would probably have to be closer to the south of town for me- no worries if not though.

Let me know!

What time and where works for everyone else? It doesn't look like it's taking on any legs so no biggie.

I also had the brakes bled while it was there.

I'm looking at my itemized invoice. The coolant is was $62 and the tranny issue was $88. Just an FYI.

I finally got around to swapping out the t-case skid. All I can say is wow, that was bent. It ended up pushing the t-case up, and causing more of the slip yoke to show, and also made more angle on the driveline, giving some nice vibes. Anyway, all fixed now, but here's a couple pics of how it looked. Kinda hard to see from the pics, but still... But on the plus side- no more vibes, so I'm good to run again!

Helped Froggo get his sliders installed.

Yeah, we didn't even get one side done. Although only have 4 holes to drill and install 4 bolts (which I'll do tomorrow night) then when he comes back Thursday night we'll get the drivers side finished and hopefully attack the passanger side differently and done in a bit over an hour

Sounds like a standard slider install. First one takes a day and a half, second one takes 45 minutes

nierace is right - they are a huge PITA to install...Ya won't catch me having a shop do it though

The two piece support arms allow nicely to have it flush against the frame rail, however it also adds error to the install having 3 more holes to line up per support arm.

Basically imagine the two arms that go from the rocker tube to the inner frame rail. Those are a two piece arm. One is the bracket which bolts to the frame rail and the other piece is the slider. Each arm/bracket is held together with 2 bolts. So not only when you mount the bracket do you have to get the width right so the arms & brackets match up, but you'll have to cross drill through the arm/brackets to fit in the 2 bolts.

Ohhhh...now I get it. Do you have to use a jack or something to maintain pressure against the pinch? Drilling through round tube has to bring the suck.

Yeah jack to keep it up there. Drilling through the round isn't too bad since the arm already has been drilled so the bracket is the only thing that needs to be drilled though.
