I need to take more pics. I have the radiator mounted all of the wiring done and the engine running. I just need to work on getting driveshafts and steering parts and finishing reassembly. I hope to have it at the Jeep blessing on May 1st.

I gotta say Steve, you do great work You know that I absolutely hate painted wheels and that I'm not a big fan of stretched jeeps, but yours has made me re-think a lot of that. It looks great!! Your work is top notch and it shows. Keep up the great work and I'll try to make it over to lend a hand soon.

Thanks mrclean for all of the help this weekend.

We got most of the body armor mocked up and started installing the steering.

X2, nice detail bringing the T-case shifters through the factory opening. I did the same thing. Do you have long arms? Seems like it'll be a reach to shift that auto from the drivers seat?

Small update. I got the Jeep drivable but had some leaks at the trans and tcase. I picked it up today from Unlimited Offroad where they fixed my leak issues and mounted my rear shocks and swaybar. I plan to load it up and head to Silver Lake tomorrow for a shake down run. So far everything is coming along pretty good other than some fine tuning with the timing. I will post more pics once I take some, I have been slacking on pics lately.

I got about 3 miles of testing on it Thursday then loaded it up and headed out to Silver Lake. Other than a few small oil leaks and a jam nut on my cable shifters coming loose, everything worked great. I hope to make it up to R&V soon to give it a real test. Here are some pics from Silver Lake......

Your jeep looks great. I wanted to get up there to see it up close and ride with your club again, but I had too many things going on over the weekend.

Ready to start something new, it's going to be hard to see it go.
