Expensive week...

Well it's been a very expensive week for me... at least it's all good stuff!
Came home from work Monday to find that my Bowflex had been delivered, then the next day I recieved my '07 Ranger service manual set I bought from jimd1050.

The best thing is what I just came home with tonight...



It actually has a pretty good (long) story to go along with it. A month or so ago I was bored and looking around for a body lift for my truck. Then I looked around a bit for a SL... was just going to shut the computer down when a google search came up with a Superlift for sale in Calgary on Craiglist so I called the guy and talked to him for a while. Turns out he bought this kit new a couple years back for his '04 and it had a few issues so he traded the truck and then had this kit sitting in his garage.
After a day or two we worked out a deal and I told him I'd take it once he got me some shipping quotes. Then I remembered a guy I know from our local Mustang club had moved out to Alberta. Turns out the only guy I know in the western half of the country was 10 minutes away from the guy with the superlift!
I emailed him the cash, and the seller dropped the kit off at his house.
It actually gets even better, the guy who I know who lives out there pm'd me and said his buddy, who is a trucker who lives in London, was out in Alberta and would be heading back to London. He was able to bring it all the way back here to me for a good price, and I picked it up this afternoon!
I already picked up my XJ driveshaft last weekend, and have the adapter for it ordered.

By the way.... anyone care to guess what I picked the Superlift up for? Remember it's BRAND new! Andrew/ShadowRanger08 you're not allowed to "guess" haha

I already asked him before, but that was before he was really considering going back to stock.

All the kit is missing is one grease fitting and one of the flanged nuts for the end of the sway bar link!

So does anyone know about shortening my XJ driveshaft? Do I make it the same length or longer than the original one?
