-clocked, pass. drop np241
-7" shackles in the rear and the moving of my shackle flip again

-K30 master cylinder
-38.5x15/16.5 Boggers
-recentered H1 double beadlocks

my 7" rear diy4x shackles came in, pictured next to an ORU shackle




also ordered, 14ff perches, d44 and 14ff spring plates, 7" UDSR shackles offset 1/4" and a few heavy washers from diy4x and crown performance braided stainless lines, 36" long with the correct fitting for my ifs lines up top and a 10mm banjo block down at the bottom from shane74

my usa6x6 () pressed centers got shipped to my Apt instead of citizenrider's house in Tx... they have since been picked up and on their way to his place... i guess i can count my blessing that i even got them at all, took 13 days lol, better than the 10 weeks or years it has taken some ppl to get their crap

Looks good. Should have put out the cash for the Dana 60. I know you have heard it though.I wish I would have on my SAS. May think about cutting the shock brackets off the 14b, look like they could hold you up on something.

Heres mine;

yea i know i should have gotten a 60 etc, but i couldnt pass up this 10blt that was rebuilt like 5k ago, brand new locking hubs that have never been installed and 5.13s... after teh initial swap ill start saving for a 60 etc. i agree with you on the shock tabs, but they are gonna stay so i can temporarily mount my rear shocks until i get an inboarding kit from kert... i remember you truck from gmfs, it looks good. you been doin any wheelin?

I put the 241 in yesterday and everything works fine, but... its leaking so i get to pull it back off today and fix that (yay), pics will come later as i dont have any means of uploading them on shelby's computer.

ughh not lookin forward to the hour long drive home with straight exhaust manifolds

Just went up to the hills yesterday for some paintball and wheeling, bent my tierod but that was about it. I understand the deal with the 10bolt. As I only have a D44 myself.
I did the same thing with my 205 in the Blazer. Put it in, looked good, then the next day leaks.
Atleast you will get a lot of looks, might find someone worthy to look back at. I got yelled at a few times from old ladies yelling "Thats to tall" as they went by. I just laughed. I'll keep looking on the fullsize site for progress.

yes the oru ones are off set but those arent the DIY ones im using up front those are the ones im gonna be using in the back...

well driving back from lake charles with no exhaust fvcking sucked, but what sucks about 10000 times more is that i fvcked up the mating surface of my 241... apparently your not supposed to tighten studs into an aluminum tcase as hard as we did yesterday. the threads on the short side of the stud wher about 1/4" longer than the thickness of the ring so we figured tighten them real good so they dont come out, yea not such a good idea. after we pulled it out and saw what we did, the only thing we had available to try and fix it was jb weld , so we filled in the spots with that and filed it down, added a liberal layer of RTV and commenced to reinstalling... all seemed to be going smoothly untill after i filled the case again and backed it up 20 feet so i could clean the shop, well it leaks again, so im gonna try a few things to help my cause here in the next few days, but if i cant get it right, i guess ill have to bring it to a machine shope and get the spots filled in with weld and milled down flush. oh what a joyous day, and now the pics

Angry

what realy burns my ass is that GLO did not include one peice of paper with the ring, just the hardware in a box... a simple sentence or possibly two could have averted this crap from happening
