    Well, as most of you know, I've been working my butt off trying to get my 4x4 working. To get it to work I've had to:

    1) Replace 3rd member in front axle and replace axle shaft u-joints (finished)
    2) Find a front driveshaft and rebuild/install (finished)
    3) Replace transfer case shift motor (finished)
    4) Replace shot automatic hubs with lockouts (Purchased)

    Only thing I need to do now is install lockouts and try to get the broken bolts out of the front yoke of the 3rd member. I bought new ones and when I went to install the driveshaft, 3 of the sunsabitches snapped off! (with a 1/4" drive ratchet!!!) :cry:
    I was actually thinking about tack welding the straps on where the bolts broke off since theres a new u-joint there anyway...what do y'all think?

    with all that work and the truck being 18 years old, I would've just opted for purchasing a newer truck. But I'm not a mechanic and thats how I roll.

    It was a $400 truck. I've so far put $2000 into it (for everything) so for $2400 I have a 4x4 truck booking at around $5000 + whatever the mods and upgrades I have done to it.
