All that progress is cool!

How close are you cutting the schedule?

The run in on the 3/30.
Should be enough time to get it all done, but I have my kids all day this weekend, and will be out of town from the 22nd to the 28th...

My goal is to get the tcase gears in tomorrow night, reinstall the tcase on Friday, then hopefully find time over the weekend to wrap up the front suspension over this weekend.
Then on Mon/Tues reassemble the interior after some trimming.

I know it seems like all the time in the world, but it really goes by quick.

Updates:
Found out I have the wrong torsion bars to go back into the Montero. Minor setback.. I still have the stock ones.
I got my replacement transfer case to install gears on last night. I pulled the face plate off, pulled out the old gears, got the new gears in there, assembled it and everything's spinning freely.
However, I'm assuming I did something wrong. I can't move the shifter to save my life. The H-L shift fork moves. The one that gets a little trimming. But the 2-4WD shift fork won't move. The rail doesn't slide at all.
I bolted back up the shifter to see if leverage from the fork would help, and I couldn't get it to move. Anyone have thoughts?
