My biggest expenses left are : tires, ps lines, and fluids/gaskets/hoses

leak is going to be fine they take the back cap off in order to drain out all the gear oil.

also test fitted the 4eat driveshaft. looking good!! installing timing kit tomorrow as well as some bushings for the steering rack.Trying to get the tie rods on and the steering column all buttoned up. any one have pics of their dash when installing the steering column?

Very cool. How do you handle Costco for tires? Do you just bring in the wheels and get a stock size for them? In my experience they have been picky about only doing stock sizes.
