You going to have something in by August? I just picked up another limited slip for my front axle so I should have it back together by next weekend, already getting ready for summer dog party, hope you're gonna make it down for that.

I know man I'm getting soft, messing with the Jeep to much. lol, yeah we was thinking about making the Loonie Run but have to head down state the weekend before and going to kill the funds for that trip. Turtle ridge one time yet this year and lots of playing up here.


Just cleaned up the mess today from yesterday as buddies wife was talking about how it was looking like a junk yard. So I cleaned up while woman cleaned it up and painted it for some rust protection. Start putting it all back together after work tomorrow, then I'm done working rest of week and be working on just the rig and should have it going by the weekend.
