Called the guy and "someone" offered him 100 for just the gears. I said never mind then. he wanted me to pay 200 and it would need a complete overhaul.

I'm thinking just get both axles from the junk yard. Build them up and overhaul them, then buy the lift, And swap it all it eliminating down time. I wish I knew someone to set up gears cheap.

Once I get the axles and all it would still be cheaper to get all the parts and pay you to install them. Fort Wayne isn't to far away. I'll prob get ahold of you when the times come and we can work out a deal if you'd like you make some side money.

Did a little work while TRS was down. When I did the sway bar bushing I notice an outer u-joint had tons of slack. Well something that should of take 2 hours max took all day.





After having to cut the u-joint itself and beating the caps out i found out the shaft was bent and the new caps wouldn't even go down far enough to get the clips in.




Also got the bronco a little muddy pulling out a 2wd f150 that and was axle deep. Mud didnt stay on long, a max of 5 hours.






Then the brown truck delivered a new package.



What was inside. New 4in alpine speakers for the dash.











Thats All. Also fixed the tails where previously the left one would always stay bright. rewired all of it.

Also bought new rear speakers and a new sub to replace the blown garage I have now.
