ring and pinion/master install kit $230.
wheel spacers $65.
knuckle rebuild kit w/wheel bearings $145
U-bolt flip kit $50.00
Locrite (not installed..yet) $115.00
All-pro/junkyard springs $30.00

Good call on bracing those shock towers. I was wheeling Hell's Revenge with a crew from CO and a guy broke one of those shock towers clean off. His were not braced.

Those shock towers aren't going anywhere. They are welded right.

Kick ass Marc! I can't wait to hit some trails with you. I'll probably have to stop while you go on some crazy obstacle!

you might want to think about turning your rear up a few degrees to get a better drive shaft angle. your u-joints will thank you. but i like i gotta pay mine off before i break out the fire wrench
