    Ordered up some small needed items. Got the trans case seals I need, the snap ring for the transfer case output shaft, cv joints (cheap ones just for testing the diff drop to see if the improved angles make a difference, and I also ordered everything to paint it. Trying to get something done before I’m down. Still can’t afford tires, but I need to keep going till I can’t, nothing is gonna stop this truck from being finished.. Last time anyone is gonna see my black expedition on here [​IMG]

    Got the rigs lined up in their stall for the torsion bar swap. If I haven’t mentioned, I’m swapping the lighter torsion bars and control arms from an air ride model into my non air ride XLT. Along with normal shocks and not the normal coil over that goes with the air ride conversion, I should pick up a little more wheel travel, and they should compress easier. Also removing the front bump stops.. All the paint has arrived, and the rest of the supplies should be here Monday. Paint will be after the torsion bar swap, and some testing. Not ready to scratch up new paint yet, this time it’s an important and special paint scheme.

    Not yet.. The tires have chunked apart, lots of tread sections missing. I wouldn’t do that on a good set, shits too expensive..

    So, got everything together. Was hoping the diff drop would help minimize cv breakage with the posi front end. My cv axles are perfectly level at ride height. 6 minutes in, and I popped the drivers side cv. Initially the all broke at the hub end, but this time it didn’t really break it, it separated at the diff end of the shaft. I can actually put it back together and it operates fine. I can’t see a turn even at full lock pulling the shaft assembly clean out of the cup, but that’s what it’s done.. I have some spacers I made before the diff drop, I may try one on the drivers side this time. Short, crappy vid of testing yesterday. Felt starting light would help get a feel, for broke instead.. Notice I left the hatch open and dropped some tools, done it a few times, lol.. Note the breakage at roughly 6:24 in the video..
