Got my new clutch in and the new filler neck, much better.










Well got the bolts for the joints and the tube ends are being welded up to the stock and should have it back tomorrow. Then the steering should be on by this weekend.



My catback system I picked up.




My master install kit came today from 4wd... http://www.4wd.com/productdetails.aspx?partID=11650




And fixed my crooked ash tray, that falls out at every bump, to much change I think.





Got my CB hooked up but I need to adjust the Freq. to use it. Got CB from Wal-Mart, but need to upgrade later.. http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...uct_id=4642484




Then Trail Fanatic helped me and made a make shift air box to help keep the water out of my intake due to the last trail ride adventure with a couple little mud holes. Post pics of it tomorrow.

The air Box that Trail Fanatic and I came up with to help keep water getting sucked up in the intake. Better than cardboard..




Got my stock, 1 1/2" x .25 wall dom ($41 for 8ft stick), back and cut down for my steering. Just need the tube ends welded up..

Well, my jeep rocked in the dunes. Forgot my digital camera so had to get a quick snap one, so will get that developed and get pics up. But the jeep did great for only 2wd. Just hammered the gas and she went. Made it up tes hill several times even after I almost got stuck coming in on the enterance hill.
Fun fun! Was great to meet Up with 89eliminator and his parents. Was a good time and met some of you guys of the Dirty Minds Club and said Hi to a few people with the Great Lakes sticker. Good to put some faces to screen names even though I will not remember.

Got my carrier today so good to go on re-gearing the D30. :rock on: :rock on:


So got my steering on today still working out a few kinks being the trac bar bushing is shot so I'm making due. But she is great as far as the steering. Way nicer than stock. Should be getting it pulled together tomorrow. Paint too!

Gears installed I have 4wd now

Gear install went smooth, got it right the first time so no redoing it a few times to get good pattern.

So watch out, if I couldn't be stopped in 2wd then I won't be in 4wd.


And thanks to the person who helped me out, I'd post a pic but he's to damn ugly for the net



:tonka: Alright only snapped a couple pics here they are...
