Locker should be done today.Changed rear diff fluid and I do believe someone replaced the rear end a little before I got it. Good for me! No signs of water or mud making it ways in either. But this weekend may work for me. Still have some parts needing to get welded on but jonesin' to test locker out first

Locker is in and everything back in place , not as easy as a brake job "as they say".
Hated to bother you but I couldn't think of anyone who may have knew the answer to my question and I was stumped on whether or not I should let them out , I had been thinking of just leaving those spacers out since it did not look like it would hurt BUT there was no way I would have been comfortable about leaving those out until I heard from someone with experience. Thanks again.
tomorrow after work I install the sticker
That should go better

locker tested out today. not too bad. hard ride for sure today but nice weather. This weekend I will add the front tow points and then wear the current tires down and replace them and add a minor body lift and that's about it ..... oh ... i am looking for a place to mount a full size axe. Thinking of putting it on the hood like the guys with hi lift jacks.

taking a break and enjoying the weather

Everyone is wheeling Rock Run or Doe Valley. All legal places. Do you want to wheel Doe Valley? Spring Thaw is this Saturday in Windber. Meeting at Courtesy this Saturday at 8:30 pulling out at 9:15 sharp!!! The best terrain in Pa.

Thanks, glad to hear you had a good time. We have a few internal issues that we have to iron out to make it better though. The next public ride is July 13th for Amelia's Angels at Doe Valley it is a big charity event. Spring Thaw is the only one that starts at the Stadium.

4.0 swap? Haha plenty of them at the junkyard and ud have fuel injection. Rebuild it n build urself a stroker, or find urself another 4.2. By burning oil, u mean ur losing oil but its not leaking newhere? Or do u mean its smoking out of the exhaust?

I'd stop driving and pull the head if u want they n save that motor. If ur goin to put a diff one in just keep driving it until it gives up the ghost. Def sounds like ur head gasket has leak, if its not running too rough n u haven't been too harsh on it it might b alright. If uve been beating on it chances r u got some bottom end issues by now. What tranny is mated to ur 4.2?
