Major set back today. Trans is acting up. It seems i might have to pull it and replace a seal that got messed up during the rebuild. Taking it in monday or tuesday for a diag. Hope i dont have to pull it but it sounds that way.

Well the trans is back in and seems to be working good. I did not drive it on the road but in low range on the dirt and big parking lot it shifts good and runs out good. Well as good as a 4 banger can. Trac bar bracket is all gusseted and ready. Going to build a rear bumper tomorrow and trim a few little odds and ends and call it a day.

Default Ok not quite done but..........................

It is wheelable. The wife and i took turns wheeling it in the back field tonight. It seems to get around good. The welded front is not as bad in this light weight rig as it was in the bronco. Has some creeks and groans that i need to adjust but nothing seemed to major. I got some new pics and ill load them when the wife gets home tonight.

Heres some pics. Not Realy happy with the trac bar angle or drag link. Planning on doing some sort of highsteer later this year so i will change it when i get that far. I think it will wheel ok for now.

it is tight but then again if it was bigger the 4 little rodents under the hood would have a hard time moving it.
