went to gumbys today to drop off some parts. Managed to come back with some.

Realized the free rotors i got awhile back werent 2wd, they are 4wd Sport trac rotors---SCORE, brand new 12inch 4wd rotors!


So i picked up a set of spindles for 12inch rotors from gumby



Oh, and awesome way to keep stuff in the bed



Now i just need to sell off the 11.28 (?) rotors and spindles

ha, so this build was "done" for awhile, I got it back on the road, Tranny rebuilt to 4wd by myself and front diff installed


But ever since, My O/D light had been flashing and was stalling while at lights, and had a flare from 1st to 2nd. Turns out the intermediate shaft speed sensor wasn't reading anything and the tranny was stuck in 2nd gear during idle.


So come Monday, work is swapping a used jy tranny and finally installing my rear shackles that have been sitting around for almost a year now.


More updates soon

Waiting for installl

OOOH

And I sent out my front driveshaft, turns out it is 1.5ish inches too long. I got a local guy to shorten it for 50bucks. Alot better then the 175 the "professionals" quoted me
