I like that color! Is that the Warn grill guard up front? It looks "bigger" than the one I've got on mine for some reason... Maybe just because you're missing the winch? :p

Cool pics. :)

missing the winch...for now. haha, hopefully i'll get one sometime soon, maybe for christmas!

So, I took off work a little bit early yesterday, and went ahead and got started to see what i could get done.

I got the rear axle completely disconnected, except for the brake line and the axle breather hose. Just got to lower the leaf springs and pull the thing out.

I need to get a line wrench or something to get that brake line off though. it was being a pain. I don't really want to end up rounding it off or anything like that.

It really only took me like an hour to get everything off and loosen everything. Then like another 30 minutes messing with the e-brake lines, they were hung up a bit. Easy stuff.

Rest of it going in on sunday, along with the D30 front.

woohoo!
