idk overheating, bearings failing, gears exploding, leaking, etc.

slander had the inchworm cases and his tcase blew up not too long ago while driving on the street.

seems like the correct way to do it anyways. buy the lefty now and and down the road get a second case and have the lower gears in the rear case, which is the way it should be.

Let me eloborate a little more. All the brackets are centered on the axle. The only reason it isn't centered under the truck is the panhard bar

Haha. Non Toyota axles under a toyota?? Unpossible. And it's gonna cost me $5000 and I won't be done until 2015!


Anyways, tons of progress made. Should be finished with everything other than some brake line adapters by tomorrow. I'll update the main thread with some pics later tonight.

You better believe it is! It was all up in my way.

But its just temp. Gonna drill the knuckles out and run heims over the knuckle rather than under when I get some more funds. Its not seeing the street for now, so I'm not too worried. It just hangs reallyyyyy low.
