HAHAHAHA I was a wire harness and 2 DS's away from it moving on it's own. But it is torn back down to the frame. With the whole drivetrain removed and ready for the portal's to fall in place.

Well almost a year after it left Ironmans garage I got motivated to work on it again. Had a rear caliper bracket rip off the axle. Pat fixed that this week and the brakes all work fine now. Also this week finished up the exhaust, front driveshaft done and installed. Rear fenders welded up and body panel adhesive applied to fill in the gaps. Still need to fix my winch, so maybe this weekend I'll order parts for it.

I had it up the ramp farther but lost a rear coil:tonka:




Beside the rear coils falling out, rear shocks are also gonna limit flex. Notice in this pic how close I am to bottoming out the right rear shock.


Also have problem with the tcase. For some reason the linkage is messed up. Can't get it into 4lo. The leaver is hitting the floor column(I think thats what it's called), it stops in neutral. Pat and I will mess with that next week. I'm also going to paint up the fenders and front bumper. Gonna be ready soon.
And yes I have the smaller tires on it right now.....they hold air compared to my Iroks on the beadlock wheels.
