Better to take your time than rush on something like this, Dave. It will be good to see you this week.

Maybe the rig will be ready for the Back to School Run in September.

well, was putting the front axle together for the last time... and figured out that - RCV axle tube seals will not work with RCV 300M axles...

RCV performance customer service was very professional and accommodating spent close to an hour on the phone with them.

they even offered that they will research it more for that axle (1978/79 F-250 HP Dana 44) and let me know what they come up with...

and since the axles and tube seals were purchased direct from them, the are giving a full refund!...

Very cool company with great products...

Highly recommend them.
