Psst. Go fix your grand prix and finish school. If you trade the car for a trail truck, I am sure you'll feel real smart driving it from MI to PA a few times/year.
ps I am not to concerned about your jEeP beeing done first, I have another to use.

Now, can I continue with a build thread

Above pic is after shortening the arms.
Below shows that "some" skid modification will be needed.

Below shows the 5.3 / 4l60e in the frame.

Last one shows it will have very little room for exhaust and driveshaft.

Well, I have been doing a great job at dropping the ball on this one. Finally got the tank removed from the doner =


Avnxtek and I got the skid modified last night so we can now move on to the next step etc....

I hope to shoot a pic. of the finished skid plate before it gets hidden.

Tranny / t-case adapter, I just finished up. Has the vss in it. It is shorter and allowed me to rotate the t-case compared to a factory adapter (probably pretty similar to a novak or AA one?). Had some help from a couple friends to get this done, thanks. In the picture is also the modified stock 231 shifter ( so it can mount to my adapter) and Avnxteks really cool brake line flaring tool.
.

.

.
Here is the VSS ring tacked to the input of my t-case. It is a ring from an s-10 case that I bored the id out to slip on the input. I am also using the s10 sensor, as it is the same as what my 5.3 needs and plugs into the harness etc.. Bluing is from while I was adding clearance to the adapter.
.

.
Here is a shot showing my ugly mounting of the rear brake line and coils etc..
.

.
Last couple I got, the tub is in the garage, hope to get it on the frame this weekend????
.

.


Now, tell what I am doing wrong??
