I just got caught up, and those fenders are sweet. Will the air hole face forwards or backwards?

They direct air towards the rear of the truck, towards the brakes and rear end. But mostly they are just for looks... lol

Thanks!

Well... yea the plan is to drive it up to northern CA next Monday... so I sure hope its running. It looks right now as if it should be driving by then, so I should.. 'should' be good to go.

Here's whats left...

Fab upper shock mounts
Fab fuel cell hold downs
Plumb Cell
Plumb Brakes
Wire tail lights
Wire Cell
Wire VSS
Mount bumpstops
Mount fiberglass
Replace tie rods
Alignment

So if I can pull that off this week I should have it driving. I'll have a CEL until I fix the sensor in the fuel tank, probably won't have the fuel level sender working (maybe), won't have things like lights mounted, I'll be running off the stock location battery as I won't have those wired yet.

Yea.. I think that is about it.. lol..

Yup, it will be turning about 4 times faster to be exact, but the math has been done and the correct number of teeth cut into this one to make up for that. Basicly the stock one in the axle has about 108 teeth and this one has about 25 teeth (I didn't count, just guessing)... so the computer will never know the differance.
