front end done, rear end to go

well my project is now half way over. got the 4.56's installed in the front end, and the front end and all driveshafts connected, and diff filled, front is DONE! me and my dad took off tomorrow and we're gonna tackle the rear first thing in the morning, should go better than the front. can't wait to take that first drive with the new gears!

EDIT: the frikin crush sleeve is a b!tch to crush, luckily i borrowed our homemade tool from work that bolts on to the drive shaft yoke to hold it, its 3 foot long, and i had a 3 foot cheater pipe on the 1/2" drive breaker lol but we got it done

you should have waited to install the front drive shaft untill the rear is done.

i hope the transfer case will be ok with it.

I think he should be ok as long as he does'nt accidentally put it in 4 wheel drive. If he does.......................major carnage!

I guess better safe then sorry?
