Hey all, I work on the Kat Saturday. Install was pretty straight forward. Used a buddies lift to make things easier. Everything took about 6 hours between beer breaks, lunch and trans jack issues. Was really surprised how easy it was. Hardest part was removing the factory driveshaft bolts. They use a lot of green lock tite. I have about 50 miles on it so far. Gears whine ever so slightly but only really only noticeable on deceleration. I was expecting worse from what I've read. Cradle lockout is a little stiffer but not much. I was nervous about that. No issues with vibration so far on the driveshaft up to 85mph. I'll keep you guys updated. My DIRS brace will be here Wed. I plan on installing sat when I change the diff fluid out. Taking it to the track Sunday. We have a group of 25 for a private track day. I'll be the only American muscle there 馃挭. A few photos of the install. If anyone has questions let me know. I can answer from my experience.

Diff brace is pretty easy. I did run a tap through the holes in the frame. Always a good idea to do that. I think some years have the holes tapped and some don't, but the kit comes with those special nuts, so you are good to go either way.

Help me out, which pic shows the cradle lockout bushing, and how does it help?
