    Did you bend your currie anti rock arms to clear your inner fenders ? My curry anti rock hits on mine and was wondering if and if so how did you bend your arms ? Torch ?

    Relief cut, bend, and weld. I bent mine to clear the track bar mount and the passenger to match even though it's taken a beat and now bent against the frame.

    You know my opinion on the old 14 bolts. Shafts are getting very hard to find.
    I’ve got 4 sets of shafts for my newer 14 bolt cause every time I’m at the junk yard I see another 6.0 2500 with a 14 bolt... just something to think about

    I may still pick up a late model one, really doubt I'll pop a 14b shaft until it gets some LS goodness. When I break one I'll prob swap in some branik shafts or something similar. I change my mind a bunch on what direction I want to go.

    Due for a minor update.

    Finally bought some rope and got rid of my cable that was getting pretty janky. Little man helped out on the re-spooling.

    Pretty sure I know who my first employee will be in a few years.

    Finally bought a store cover to keep the rain out. Really wanna try and tow with this on but I'm not sure it would survive.

    Re-ran my driver side line for the ram, had it catch the clevis and come loose. Was a fun experience.

    Late Wednesday night I found this :eek:

    Band-aid in place (Yes the truss was never fully boxed in, not sure what I was thinking. It was already on the axle when I got it)

    So I ordered a set of TMI Thin Ring weld on beadlocks this weekend, order two new wheels today as the front are beyond fubar.

    Haven't quite figured out how the beadlocks are gonna help you stop winching but it should help keep the tires on the wheels :flipoff2:
