Engine, trans, and transfer case, and front driveshaft are back in the jeep. Need to mount radiator, air box, exhaust, steering reservoir, and rear driveshaft. The engine wiring is mostly all plugged in except the air box

Seats and belts are back in. Figured out the nutserts we had sucked, so need to get some new ones to finish up the dash. It feels working on the jeep since we put it back on shocks and it's not on the bumps any more.

Oh, and we leave in 19 days...

We will be the first to qualify for Modified class on Tuesday, February 4th. From what they said on the Ultra4 show tonight they will have Pro SXS qualify, then Spec class, then Modified. There should not be much time to get the nerves going.

Contingency is back on Wednesday!

Looking for 10-32. I picked up another awesome harbor freight tool tonight, but Grainger didn't have the nuts

I don't know specific sizes, but summit racing has nutserts and I usually get my order next day (not sure about to back counrty Hartland area). Easier than driving in circles.

Call this place. If they have what you need I can pick them up and perhaps deliver Thursday after work. It's the place I go for odd-ball stuff.
