Also mounted the air filter and hooked up the lower radiator hose.

Tomorrow I plan to fill it up with coolant and work on the wiring, that is unless it is really nice out then I'm playing golf... lol
Just played a round with my boss on sunday! (it was 80, i was sweating the whole time)
Definitely looking forward to seeing some wheeling pics of that beast!

I thought about welding it. I bought it all from Broncograveyard. lockouts were 159 and locker was 345. Not the best prices but not horrible either. I really couldnt find a good place to buy the lockouts.

I have the 35spline chromoly outers and stock 35spline inners. My outers the splines were junk so i bought Yukon shafts for the outers.

I've bought a lot of stuff from BroncoGraveyard. It may cost a little more, but they have quality parts.

here it is...this project is considered complete in my book. only thing left is bumper, seat belts, and fix the tach.

I will probably clean up a few other things and take some good pictures of the finished product. Anyway.

Front driveshaft installed, front locker, new front lockouts.
