Re: I can see the light!!!
YOU GO ON WITH YOUR BAD SELF!!! I know exactly how you feel, you WILL make it, and hey, you've got an entire 3 day weekend to get it going.
A piece of advice. Before you put the transfer case in, I would turn it over a couple of times, just to make sure that your clutch deck and fork are properly clearanced. If it's not, you will hear a "very bad sound", easily recognizable from 150 yards, stop where you are. If it sounds normal, proceed with the x-fer. You will probably want to leave the orange plug in the rear of the tranny just in case (test should be done with trany in neutral, and test engaging/disengaging clutch.
What x-fer were you throwing on this thing? If it's an Atlas, you've got a little cutting, but other than that, it sounds like you have it by the short hairs.
