My new axles are now sitting next to Abby in the back yard waiting to be installed. From the time Colin received my check to delivery at my house was 30 days.

Hey Top, are you thinking about putting them on in the dark? Mine have been exchanged and are sitting behind the AS. I cant install untill Sunday after church. I'll be stuck at the Fire station tomorrow thinking about it!

chris and i replaced our axels on our 72 overlander last spring. it took a while... really the most important part was using the jb80 on the nuts. until they moved.. that was the long part. the actual process only took one day, a long day but only one. it made such a difference it was amazing. of course chris had to get new aluminun wheels and tires at the same time but it was totally worth it. she looks so good with her new wheels. mareinmn but really alabama

I think I'll bolt them up during daylight since we "sprung forward". I was thinking of going to Fastenal and getting SS hardware to install them with. I can donate my zinc coated hardware to some schlep that gets his axles from Inland!
The kids are on spring break, so we spent the weekend out at Canyon of the Eagles with some other Airstreamers. We had a great time. It did feel weird to go to a rally without Abby. Back at it tomorrow..

I wonder what the drop shipping is from Melbourne.
Would we have to install them upside down being that they're Aussie axles.

Melody,
It means a lot of things. Mostly to drag something slowly and under great duress. When talking of a person, the urban dictionary is the most current place to get the meaning.
