Looks good nick, you'll love your RCVs & HD tierod. If you want rid of your stock rear shafts, tell Ryan to let me know or shoot me a pm. I'd like a spare set.

And my wolf pack... it grew by one. So there... there were two of us in the wolf pack... I was alone first in the pack, and then Doug joined in later. And six months ago, when Doug introduced me to you guys, I thought, "Wait a second, could it be?" And now I know for sure, I just added two more guys to my wolf pack. Four of us wolves, running around the desert together, in Las Vegas, looking for strippers and cocaine. So tonight, I make a toast!
