Brians coming down here Sunday I believe depending on what his load sheet says.

I'm doing swivel preload - welding some stuff and maybe installing the truetrac if there is time.

We should probably start early if you guys have other stuff to do too...

You could borrow my hole saw set, although i'm a little out of the way for you. Or just stop at a hf on the way and pick up a set they're like $10.

nope. no diff guards yet. i was thinking of contactin teh local pipefitters union and asking if anyone wants to make some cash on the side...

brett was running around like crazy trying to get his new truck so all we did was get the hub on and i had to rebuild the xyz again. if we had more time we could have done the snorkel for sure. the closest harbor freight is a good hour from me when there is no traffic.
