Cory's SL install (56k grab a beer or 12)

Here's the awaited pics... Not the best, but it's hard when you're all working on it.

All know about the locker problem... Pics showing install, not great though.

Hope everyone likes!

You don't wanna know... The toolbag brigade decided to put in the locker that caused cory to stay in town and spend a lot of money in repairs and tows... and we lost power, which means no air in the compressor..

Started at 10am

Finished 11pm or so.

Locker install, SL install, and power outage...

SL install was literally about 4 hours

Nice documentary on the install. I wish we could have some pics of the front driveshaft hitting the exhaust.

Did you guys put the SL driveshaft in?

Austy's and his pappy's lol... 67 FI 502 with a 6spd in it... Dakota digital gauges... They've done all the work on the car. It's so freakin badass and that thing scoots REAL good down the road lol...

Keith, no SL shaft... It's funny how SL wants you to run their shaft whereas with my RCD, says nothing about having to put in a new shaft or recommendation lol...

Yeah, ive heard some dont use it, but I just dont want to be out somewhere where I need 4x4, and have the damn thing break. How many miles do you have on the RCD lift with the stock shaft?
