Well not a whole lot to update lately. Got a lot of parts that should be coming in in the next week or 2.

My little JBL 8" sub took a **** the other week so I just ordered a new Kicker Solo Baric L7 8" Should be here one day next week. Going to give it a try and see how it is.

Got new front calipers, pads, and brake line from Rock Auto the other day for the d44. Also ordered a set of Sammi rotors to finish the disc setup on the 9"

Got other various little odds and ends on order.

Got one more big order to place with Ruff Stuff and I will have everything I need for the sas and I can get to swapping.

Ill post pics as parts come in.

I have OBA now with a electric compressor. Too slow for me though. I want to be able to run air tools also.

Got home from work today and this was waiting on me. Got it for a good deal so I said why not. Got it threw one right quick. Really nice shifter. Made a extension right quick to use with the 3" body lift. Also have room to actually use the cup holders now. Thats the main plus in my book.

Also got the gasket kit for the york today.

Going to try to swap diffs in the front axle and get the 9" put together this weekend so they will be ready to bolt in. Hopefully it wont be long now.

Got the axles put together this weekend.

Swapped the carriers out in the d44, cleaned and repacked the wheel bearings and new seals, new rotors, put the diff cover and sprayed a little paint on it. Only thing it needs now is the camber bushings.

Set the backlash in the 9" and put the pinion guard on and new pinion seal and swapped on some new axles bearings and threw it all together and sprayed it with a little paint. Just need the weld on the caliper mounts and it will be ready to go in.
