But now we are getting off topic, this might belong in the tech section
Right on....sounds like u've got urself a plan..
if u'd like to start a new thread over there I'd be happy to talk with u about it ..

But what's a trip without a little carnage?

Nice meeting you and your friend
The thing ran perfectly fine all the way home i have no clue what it could be. I checked the codes and it threw a P0138 which is the downstream O2 sensor which is brand spankin new. I'm lost

On a side note it was great meeting you too looking forwrd to the next run.

Six Gun Matt Yeah, I am just going to get the ZJ tie rod. Direct swap. Shouldn't be too expensive. Eventually I am going to a real dana 44 up front, so I don't want to waste too much money on a Currie set up right now.

Unfortunately I didn't see this post until after I got back home. We had 15 rigs all together in one group, and we moved along pretty well.
