Looks like a great start! Sounds like you have a lot on ur plate ahead of you... All well well worth it! Welcome to our sickness. As ur building remember there is a lot of good reading to be done an plenty of pics to help out. If you didn't, check out tips an trucks an the creeper wagon, also plenty of others. Can't wait to see more! As far as Photobucket goes, guy ur menu button an click on view links. Copy ur img an paste it on ur build thread. It took me a couple of days to figure it out myself.

Hi, I left my red ring in an the switch. What I did when I put it back together was close the red ring an open the switch, so the little tab that rides in the groove of the red ring is now on the face of the red ring. It keeps the switch closed. I have seen others replace the switch with a piece of plastic or lexan on the inside of the axle housing as well.

No..You dont need the Red locker ring anymore...just the brass carrier bushing and the bearing that side

you only cut the rear lower links. im not sure u will have to ask thomas but i think u have to cut the rear lowers by an 1.25in. to get your wheel base to be correct. the front shocks are sapposed to be layed back a bit and the rears are sapposed to be mor.e vertical than the fronts
