Anybody stackin' parts up for the winter.

Just curios who else is putting away parts like a squirel and his nuts. What do ya plan on doin to your rigs this winter? Here is a picture of one of the many parts that I'm planning on changing this winter, hopefully by Dog Party. I haven't started anything yet, but the pile is getting big.

I'm really hoping that the parts I have so far don't turn into relics befor I get to use them, I was really slow work wise all summer and as it stands now I've only seen my jeep 3 times in the last 3 months (work got retarded busy) but it's a good thing I need to get caught up. The pic is actually one a friend sent me last night, he picked the motor up for me and took it to my shop, as I'm still in New York working.

I like where this could end up! I'd like to know what body/firewall work needs to be done to swap one into this bodystyle... my OBS '00 k3500 needs more than a 350/4l80.
