got a little more work done today but pretty much all I got done was set the motor back in and then realized I needed to remove the torque converter bushing out of the crank cause the old converter is a bit smaller. it's still fighting me, but I will out smart it tomorrow I hope.

So got some detail work done last night. Mostly just put the core support and fascia on, got the wiring run across the core, then modified the battery box to fit over the motor. Life is good.
I got to go to work tomorrow afternoon, Hoping to get a little more work done before then.

Went out to the garage today for a couple hours before I left and worked on the wood stove for an hour and then got a steering issue figured out I think, find out when we run the motor, and heater hoses figured out. and that's it. Gone for a week.

well not a real productive day, spent hour and a half at the dealership trying to find out what a part that bolts to the back of the intake is that is missing and can't find it but they got a lead that they have ordered so we will c monday if it's the part or not, bought some color match paint with the paint code and some FUCKED up royally cause the color came out a gun metal gray instead of rescue green. So they will be making another can Monday. That's not even the worst of it, got the new exhaust manifolds in 2 days ago that are FOR a JK with a 6.1 and guess what the passenger side hits the tranny long before the mating surface of the manifold hits the block so Monday I will be contacting the manufacturer of the manifolds. this sucks! but I got the A/C lines in and the rest of the old exhaust out. I feel like this thing is fighting me all the way.

Got to work on the Hulk a little more in the last couple days, and by little I mean about 2 hours. Got the lower radiator hose done so I filled the radiator, and got the gas Line on and changed the trans filters( yes 2 filters) and trans cooler installed but haven't got the lines run yet. Almost there guys only tranny lines and a vacuum for the EVAP system and I think we'll be ready to fire. But other than that i got interior to put back together, 4wd cable and bracket to hookup and drive shafts and fenderwells to reinstall and a couple other odds and ends.

This build looks great. I am currently in Afghanistan so I know how i would feel if I was your friend. I bought a 93 Ranger a few weeks ago from a friend that i am slowly getting done via family at home. It is posted on here as well its called "The Soldiers Curse". I bought it with a 3" body lift and 31's, and i picked up a set of 31x11.50 LTB's that are on it.
