If I can back date this by a day or two, I installed my RK 3.5" SA kit w/ extended brake lines and 33 x 10.5 x 15 BFG A/Ts. I only have a couple crappy, dark pictures taken on Sunday night.

For reference, the 2 x 4 is 4 feet long.

I spooled it on with only 4' in front of the Jeep and just me holding it taut so I could get it on.

It all went on perfect underneath the last few wraps

That thicker blue sleeve gets caught on the hawse going in because it wasnt strecthed out causing it to bunch a little and get it all otta wack.

When I get out tomrorrow and can strecth it out Ill get it better I hope.

Parked it in the back of the shop I work out of for a week of out of town work.

Before I left I did measure the from the transfer case to the rear u-joint as prescribed at TomWoods web site so I can order my SYE and shaft. They take the measurement and figure the shorter tailshaft of the sye, make a driveline to fit and ship it all in one package.

Maybe I can have it by next week

I pulled the rear end apart to regear this week. Because my pinion outer bearing is shot which f'd up my rear gears. Still can't get the pinion out, but I'm tired of banging on it. I'll get out the big hammer tomorrow.

I looked at mine as I walked to my truck. But tomorrow it gets ripped into so that it can take on new gears (4.88's) and front and rear lockers (ARB's).
