Sounds like your control box is on its way to being complete! How about your driveshaft? Are you having another one made? And one more question, when you installed your 8.8, what pinion angle did you end up with? Sorry for all the questions, my iPad won't let me get to your build , hopefully have my macbook back soon

Came out to half an inch of ice on her this morning. Glad I have a soft top, makes it much easier to get the ice off.

Nah, Its not a problem with the actual shaft. Another one would likely do the same. I'll drop it down to 3" springs and shocks if I can confirm without a shadow of a doubt that it is bind. The pinion is set pointing at the case output. Not sure of the actual degree.

Wouldn't you have had bind issues before, and not just all of a sudden it just starts happening and then get progressively worse? Sorry if I'm missing something that you've previously posted.

You'd think but I have had CA arms in and out a lot lately so its possible it has shifted slightly. It's always been extremely close to bind to the nature of the setup. The first time I had bind issues it started randomly after a trip as well.

looks like mine the last couple of days. 1in of freezing rain the last two days and about 10" of snow coming tonight.

OT. May be frowned upon but I spray tinted my side markers and turn signals and gave it angry eyes. I love it!

I would just replace the ball centering yoke. I've had the same problem with my rear and I'm about to do it on the front. The part number should be 211355x and they are cheapest on amazon.

More wiring today.

Got the harness wired up to the M8000 control box. I didn't like the way the harness was designed to splice into the existing wiring, and I didn't have any male spade disconnects on hand so I cut the males off of the end of the harness, broke the shields off, and rewired it so I could use the In-Cab or remote without damaging the existing wiring.



I ran as much wire between the switch panel and fuse block as I could before it got dark. Labeled both ends so I'll know how to reattach everything when the panel is ready to be permanently installed (waiting to get back to shop and bend shifter). There will be loom on most of it and zip ties on the rest when all the wires are run.




And here's the mess that was once the cab.



I really underestimated how much work this takes. Get a lot less done in a day than I would have thought.
