Box of gun parts waiting for me on the porch when I got home.  So the question that begs to be asked is will there be a range report or an update on Don's bumpers tonight?
I know which one I'd vote for!

Yeah, I think we were all looking forward to a range report too Don :angel:

That's pretty good Nate. Thanks for sharing

Cream of mushroom soup, ground Italian sausage and onions and diced potatoes over toast. Grandma never did cheese, but I did :evil:

Based off of this,  the majority of the "casseroles" I ate growing up and still make today should have actually been called "hot dishes".

explains why mom's side, the norskeys from ND made outstanding cream of mushroom soup "casseroles"

Looks like SOS w/ tots instead of toast and some cheese on top. I assume you ate 90% of that sir.

Hey Don, don't forget to add gear oil.

Dexcool & brake fluid would be a bonus!


Just trying to help buddy.  :wink:
Trans pan is coming off, so trans fluid refill afterward

No brake lines yet, so no brake fluid

Ps fluid is in

Motor oil is in

Dexcool is in

Front diff...Not in, but sitting on the floor

Write "NO OIL IN DIFF" in grease pen on your windshield. I don't want to add you to my list of hundreds of customers that call back to re-order parts!

I think Norm point out the possible splashing of the air filter from below.

I agree

Today I did something about that

Good move. I went flying through some light flood water in the denali a few years back and sucked water into the air filter box. no bueno

39 in November. Met my future bride when my stepson was 5 and I've been Dad ever since. My daughter turns 9 this year in Sept, so I've got a good gap there, but oh well, I'm used to raising only children anyhow. Watch out Tex, Sam's moving to New Braunfels this summer. His lady's got a scholarship and family out that way.
Sam from middle of nowhere Sam?

That’s close. Well start a Texas chapter

Wow, you got far! At this rate the lift will be on tomorrow.

I am no expert, but aren't you supposed to mate the halfs, set backlash and then check the pattern through the hole?

Yes and no. Technically, that is the correct method. However, on a front diff that only gets about 30% off the power 10% of the vehicle's life, close enough is acceptable. As long as the backlash is within spec, and the pinion bearing preload is too then pattern is 3rd on the list of important stuff.

Did some sesame ginger chicken dumplings with an apricot and sambal chili sauce and some shoyu ramen for friends on Sunday
Making a dashi broth from scratch was really just a basic chicken stock then adding the Asian stuff; dried kelp, dark soy and mirin. turned out pretty darn tasty.

I just picked up a 7.15lb beef tenderloin for $11.39@lb = $81.50.....  :beercheers:

I got 17 filet mignons out of it.

Heres what i saw at costco about a month ago...(regular price for comparison)


This is what I used for that Christmas dinner I did with the beef wellington. think I paid $95 for a 9lb one but they were on a special pricing deal then. darn good quality though

You have to swap out the grill also don’t you? Then the bumper space is of and needs lowered to fit the grill?

I think the hood just sits higher from the same plane Dave.

Took me way to long to figure out what you were talking about. 

1500 grille should work with the HD hood.  Here is a pic of a 2001 2500HD with a 1500 grille.  The guy bought a 1500 grille and bumper not realizing that they were different.  Installed the grille with no problems and needed to makes some spacers to install the bumper.  He asked me to build him a bumper that would work with the 1500 grille.

I figured you'd chime in. I didn't know how to properly word that :rolleyes:but I've seen too many HD hood swaps without grill swaps to believe the grill has to be changed. makes sense on the bumper though. GVW and DOT requirements etc. for the HD vs non HD...

i think those measurements make sense.. and it’s what i’ve found also.

is there any way you can show your tech guys what i’ve done so far and see what they think/confirm that i haven’t FUBAR’d anything and/or would need to replace the stub shaft (which i don’t want to do..) if the hub mechanism itself is the same thickness (where it rides/splines onto the stub shaft..) i won’t have any issues.. i don’t think.

thanks in advance

Already shown. what you've done is why we created the greater distance. you will NOT need to re-purchase stubs. are you rocking 30 or 35 spline?

From my tech dept:
"If he shaved or added a radius to the end of the stub axle our hubs will work fine.

The typical distance from the end of the wheel hub to the inside of the Locking hub selector are as follows:  The Yukon Hubs/ selector has around .160” more clearance to help reduce any contact with the stub axle.

Warn 62672        +.040” Inboard of the wheel hub face ( when we mocked it up 8 years ago.)
Yukon70001       -.120” Offset outboard of the wheel hub face."

my biggest issue/question is the fact that i’ve cut and regrooved a stub axle already. can anyone verify the depth of the part of a yukon hub that rides on the seth. shaft (from spindle to groove)

if it matches the warns, ill order a set ASAP..

I'll get the drawing from tech and message you shortly. Got any questions about Yukon just let me know, kinda my thing :wink:

I just got some of those stage 8 nut sets, hope it wasn't a waste.
if you're running Yukon hardcore hubs they are just a hair too large O.D. and grab the inside chewing up spacers and selectors

I'm sure it's in an earlier post, so I apologize in advance for being lazy, but if you're running 35 spline ford front outers, and they were Yukon's, you'd have two outer snap ring locations on the stub. if it's GM/Dodge, then just the one. but I can't speak for other brands. the hubs Shawn was speaking of are also in Wilsonphil's Ramcharger, which we went through some hiccups on with some fancy stage 8 spindle nuts... he might be of some hands on help here too, but spacers and snap rings will definitely create these issues. there should be an outboard thrust washer before the cap and hex head screws go on too...

The amount of "repeat customers" is comforting. have to pay for participation to make it look like they actually have numbers. probably more that reason to cover their faces than hiding their identity.
