    Just dropped the H3 off at the dealer for the blower motor recall (previous owner had not done it),as well as the electrical issues I have been having with my dome lights and mirrors.

    Also, I snagged a used Rancho kit off of Craigslist about a month or so ago. Only had them ship me the front (saved a lot on shipping), I will be doing a SOA in the rear. The kit needs to be re-powdercoated, it's missing a lot of the bolts (probably just going to go to a fastenal with the list), I'll also be notching the front drop crossmember to have better access to the steering rack. It came with some crappy shocks, I'm going to end up ordering some fox shocks with the specs I want for the kit.

    Mutaint, dealer called this morning, said there was a fault with the BCM, they are going to replace and reprogram it. It is just over $800 +tax to do so lol

    Maybe, I haven't actually check the plug in the firewall, however I did run water through them and they drain as they should. Who knows what the previous owner did and what not. As long as this works I'll be happy. I did check for signs of water in that area and couldn't find any.

    Picked up the H3 from the dealer, everything works now. One of the dome light fixtures is physically broken, so a new one has been orders, otherwise it all works!

    FYI BCM replacement and reprogramming (at least at my dealer) was $842, just to give others an idea of what it would cost.

    The funny thing is that they left a note in the vehicle offering me 20k for the H3, that made me laugh lol.

    Full disclosure, 4speed is doing this build. Right now the axle is built, currently gathering parts for the next stage of the build. Here are a couple of axle pics

    Dont know about the knuckles other than they are flat tops. It's a Dana 44 with 3/4 ton axle shafts geared at 4.88. With 37s it should put me in a sweet spot for highway driving and crawling
