I am planning on just bolting the 9.25 to my Ranger springs and keeping it like that till I do the SAS. Then I will use the Dodge rear leafs after re arching them to accommodate for the length to get more lift from them and get a custom shaft made. Hopefully I can reuse the Dodge front shaft, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

Make a square tube driveline for the front. That's what I'll probably start with when I do mine haha

Thankfully there's a guy that owns a driveshaft shop who lives here, but drives a half hour to work who can measure and build a custom shaft within a day.

My dad got his one piece for his car for like $220 out the door. I'm expecting probably around $275 for a 2 piece slip shaft.

Well got the trans back today for the second time. And tada! No broken teeth on the 4th gear synchro! Still waiting to get my reverse light sensor, but that's no big deal.

Got a little interior work done this week. Decided to do something a little different.



Hoping to have the 9.25 ready to go in a week or two and have it installed by early November.

I've been thinking about doing that to my door panels, with say black denim. How'd you go about doing that? Anything specific about the material you used?

Just used a basic adhesive and upholstery. Nothing special. Just takes a lot of patience to not get a bunch of wrinkles.

Didn't you have to remove that panel, though?

Yeah, it was self explanatory. Just got to break the edges off the plastic rivet things to get it to pop off and then re fasten it.

that's what I figured would have to be done. Sounds like a job for plastic epoxy and a couple clamps. Thanks for the info.

I showed Heather this morning and she really likes it too. Guess that's getting added to my list of things to do. Now to figure out what pattern I want to use.

Haha, I'm not sure if I want to use gator, but I'll let you know.

I also noticed the G2 diff cover. Good choice.
