In the future, get the proper height jack stands. That's some sketchy sh!t. You're lucky that stack of wood didn't collapse. Don't do that again.Swapped the correct axles back under the truck and out the Downey 4” lift on. Aside from CCOTs 5/8” shackle bolts needed the bushings drilled out to fit, it went together very easily.
Now that all my parts are in transit, I should be able to set the motor in next week.

Haha, I’m well aware of what I was doing. My tall jack stands aren’t here. If it was going to move I wouldn’t have done it.In the future, get the proper height jack stands. That's some sketchy sh!t. You're lucky that stack of wood didn't collapse. Don't do that again.
Haha, you gotta do the right steps to seal it. I use 6mo-1yr sealants from gyeon and it saves the paint. Trick is hydrating what’s left of the paint.It'll stay like that for a minute and a half or so. I 'accidentally' waxed one fender with hydraulic fluid the other day. Looks good for now. I'll update after awhile. BTW, that fender was not factory paint.
Hey Roma! Don't tease me with the thought of Bluewater! Idaho does not have a fine selection of seafoodNate just came across your thread. Man a lot has happened in a short amount of time. I still go to Bluewater every time I fly in to San Diego. Did you find that bolt for the axle vent? I'm sure I probably have one I can rob off something.
The Godfather himself gracing me?!Heck yea, that's gorgeous!
Enjoying the updates.
