New progress ,well my longer than stock skyjacker shocks turned out to be a tad bit too long and were breaking my lower shock mounts ,so I made new lower shock mounts and bought rear upper shock mount relocation/extension brackets from M.O.R.E. which extended the mount 2".Also I am picking up some slightly used 31 x 10.50 x 15's tomorrow and hopefully having them mounted .If so I will have some pics to post . One pic with mud and one without : )

Thanks ,did the drivers side wheel /axle joint last night ,the 3 bolts for the hub assembly fought all the way out,and the original spicer ujoints didn't want to budge either ,but with some heat persuasion and a big hammer ,they really had no choice ! Saturday I will be doing the passenger side ,it will be a little more involving since the 4wd acuator assembly needs to be removed to get the axle out.
