Very nice. Your gonna love those Iroks. I put a set on mine and they are wayyyy better than the Mtrs I had on before. Love your choice of axles too. I love my 5.38's with 35 spline shafts. No breakage yet at all with these axles.

Dont use the cheap black RTV
after all the work of putting my transfer cases in come to find out were I sealed them with the black RTV they leaked the oil softened the RTV and came on out. So now I pulled them back out (what a pain) This time around I took some pictures of setting up the inchworm crawlbox to 30 degrees.
in the plate mounting to your stock transfer case there is 5 plugs and 20 holes

The 5 plugs go here



The front mounting plate I kept at 0 degrees and clocked the rear 30 there are 2 plugs in the front mount plate that need moved or you won't be able to put the 2 lower mounting bolts in. make shure plugs are here.



Now with my transfer case clocked the fill plug is to low. here is what I did to solve that problem.
The little bolt boss above the old fill plug


Drilled it out and tapped it to 1/4 pipe put grease on drill bit and tap to keep shavings out of transfer case



I Found out the hard way that didn't leave enough meat for the pipe plug to be tighened. It cracked out the boss.


Took boss down to wear it was flat with the case and drilled it out and tapped it to 3/8 pipe. still had about 1/4 inch of threads in case.



Fill hole is alittle higher than what the oil level is. I just put 1.1 quarts in.



Now back to putting them back in to the truck

Mud flaps are not as bad as white letters out. "Sellout":D

For a free set of (5) 37's your punk ass would have the white letters out too ;) .....I turned the red letters out on my new Warn 9.5XP also :D !

Yeah you are probably right.:rolleyes: I would love to go on the UA trip. Then again I would just love it if we could get these 2 tacos completed and go beat on them.
