5:13 is the lowest you can go on a 14 bolt. I keep hearing about 5:38's for one but I ain't seen them yet. that don't mean they ain't available tho

Brandi's pissed. She says you don't appreciate the hard work she put into cleaning it the last time. And I don't know why you save it for me, you know I won't do it.

little update

finished linking the rear. just picked up a chevy dana 60 for $300. what a steal! i have the front upper controll arms mounted and i am now working on a front crossmember for the lowers. need to recenter my hummer rims, they wont fit on the 60 with the stock backspacing.

loooks good overall, but id think about trussing up that bridge over the pumpkin on the rear axle. id hate to get stuck on the trail due to somethin like that shearing off or somethin similar. overkill never hurt anyhting
