Ya definitely plan to have just about everything go wrong... Well not everything went wrong, but I'd say nothing really went according to plan lol...

It's been fun though.

All that's left is the following:

-Put the PS pump back in tomorrow after I get the ends crimped on and the other fittings for the steering box
-Mount the steering shaft and build the bracket for the pillow block
-Bleed the power steering system and front brakes
-Install a new rear soft line that I'm having made tomorrow
-Build rear shock tower, cut old shock tabs off the 8.8 and weld on new tabs for them
-Finish welding the rear hangar re-location
-Check for rear driveline clearance
-Thread lock front and rear wheel spacers/adapters
-Adjust tie rod for toe-in/out

-Hook up the battery, start it, put it in first gear and test drive it!

Awesome man..I know you've had some hang ups but I'd still say this thing has rolled along pretty well. Def. helps to do your best to have everything together before you start.

He came over to my place to borrow my brake line flare kit. Said he was nearly done. Just had some finishing touches (like steering pump lines, brake, finish some weld). Then the rear he needed metal for a shock mount for the frame.

Trimming actually is the word. I wont need much with the amount of lift I have. Trimming where the spring hangar hits the valence, and the sides of the valence where tire could potentially rub. But because my axle is designed to pivot up and back, I wont have to trim much.
