Nope. I have very new #1 Bars I just put in not too long ago.

My hubs will be here on Monday and I'm pretty sure Shane is getting around to shipping the other stuff. Justin is going to help me pick up the miscellaneous parts we still need, as I have a huge shopping list of little parts we need.

Yeah, that's what it comes down to.

Idk, what Shane's up to. He's kinda gone under the radar recently.

Shane, Justin, Ryan, Scott, and many others, my thanks goes out to you! Without you, this swap wouldn't be possible.

Do you have a shopping list of all the necessary parts needed for the swap? Not everyone can just get everything chopped off lol. I mean like UCA's, LCAs, etc, etc. I know the brakes, spindles, front axles, front differential, front shaft, t/c case, trans, what else??

We don't know if Goody is going to run a manual case or not though. I'm pretty sure that was Tre's point anyways.

With having to switch the entire dash harness, I was pushed away from the electric transfer case. I'm just going to run my 1354 Manual Shift and be happy with that. If only I was a 5 speed.... I'd have a twin stick edge with manual hubs.

Anyhow, the hubs show up in the morning. Projected install date for everything is May 12th. Working 12-14 to get it finished. Wheels and tires will be coming soon....

They are here! Just one more important part to the swap. Still trying to figure out what to do about tow points. Anyone know of a front or rear hitch for sale cheap?

$146 ish shipped. That was the cheapest I could find them anywhere. Hooray for manual hubs! I think I'll be the first 01+ with PVH style hubs.

Hoping Shane sent everything out. We are getting much closer to the install date. One week now. Got an inspection plate with a precut tcase shifter hole ordered today. Couple more odds and ends and we'll be ready to go.

Picking up a rear hitch Wednesday to aid in rear recovery.
