I need to go through all the wiring and clean it up, Mount lights, pull the skid plate and clean it, still need to build a engine skid, new rear drive shaft, brakes, remount all the floor panels etc so they don't rattle, build side panels, spare tire mount, twin stick it, mount a tach, replace temp gauge cause my current one doesn't seem to work, get different fenders to clean up the look, from bp stops to protect the ram and figure out why my steering was getting stiffer the longer I ran it (assuming I still have air in it).


But ya know what, I drove the fawker, it wheeled great fresh out of the box. Up until showing up to rocks and valleys I had only driven it from garage to trailer 2o yds. Then off the trailer at work and into my shop to fawk with brakes, then to rocks and valleys. Where the wife drove it and drove it hard lol. She even jumped it on the long crawl. I did't even set the timing in the motor, must of got it close when I replaced the distributor.

Yesterday a few of us went to Rocks and valleys for a powder puff little comp for our wives and female friends, it was also to spend the day wheeling to remember our friend Collin.

Here is part of my wife's run from the beginning of long crawl.

And for those asking about the ori's...I can't say enough good things about them. They felt so smooth and stable on the trails and rocks. and I don't even have them close to dialed in and pressures right. Hell I am not even sure where the pressure even are. I tried for 80 psi in lowers and 300 in uppers. But no idea where I actually ended up.
