SO.. Updates

Pulled the interior today, frustrations, temps, and a near failing MAC T45 due to a Magilla-gorilla ratcheted on seat belt bolt leaving the traveler side seat belt and the rear trim piece attached to the truck. All the trim was pulled except the headliner and visors; I'll do that tomorrow. But the seats were pulled, the trim, dash.. well, you can see.

Also got the bed off as well. Tomorrow I will double check whats involved in the cab pull and get a a couple guys over to help lift it off the frame. Far as I can see.. I am 6 cab bolts, two brake lines, and a couple harnesses away from removing the cab from the frame itself.

I wish I could run the Vin to see the Old Window Sticker and see what rear end it had in it. No tag, no driver door.. grrrr

Thanks, I actually have that file in a folder. My problem is the tag that usually is on the rear end is missing as well as the driver side door with the tag was pillaged off before I got there. I do know its a 8.8 but I'm being told there is a way to mark a wheel and the drive shaft and count turns and find out what the gearing is too. Just have never done it myself yet until tomorrow :wink:

6 days late but...
Both tires off the ground, if the tires turn opposite directions =open diff, turn the tire twice and count the number of drive shaft turns for gear ratio.

If the tires turn the same direction, posi or locker, some traction device, turn tire once and count driveshaft rotations.
