In the past I started projects without fully thinking everything out and would get to the point of getting mentally burnt out. My TJ's are key examples of this. I'm now at a point in life where I can be stable enough to commit to completion, that is why I haven't sold off my pile of part tj. Once I have my own place I shouldn't keep with excuses of not working on something. Like I stated this is a back burner to be worked on when the time arises. As it sits I could go camping with it. Why tear into it and like normal fail to commit to complete it. Its easier to buy something when a deal comes then wait and pay more later on. That's how I think and even if I say f it and sell later I'll easily double what I've invested into it I might be dumb but I'm good with numbers.

I already have a manual 271 for this along with the drive shafts. I do need a front 60 and rear 10.5.

Now thats a goal I can complete! For now ive been doing alot of the dirty work, removing the biowaste that was left over and cleaning with bleach. When I picked it up the firehall removed the power inverter so I luckly was able to figure out what model was in it and buy a replacement. This will give me 120v back at the electrical outlets and I can reuse the shoreline hookup that can feed the electrical system and keep the batteries maintained. Ive also been going through all the equipment and access doors to free up the mechs, they are all gummed up and not working correctly.

Next week I want to buy the EGR delete parts from Sinister. At that point I'll do all the standard maintance crap that 6.0's need to keep alive! I believe my FICU is acting up as well so I need to look into that and the batteries. Same goes with the A/C, no cold air up front. Besides that there isnt anything wrong with the truck, well except the muffler that is split down the center. Im also removing the lettering and some of the lights.
