well same day as locking myself out of the rig, I lost the key at dinner that same night, so further more had to improvise.




but was able to take it on a good shake down run and I was very impressed with how nicely everything worked and held together. Girl and I had a good time with my buddy leading the way.

I'm glad to see the project is coming along nicely. I see you found the deer bait I left you.LOL.. I guess that's what I get for running a glasspack muffler on it, critters like to crawl back up into there.

We had a nice all day run with some night wheeling this last weekend. Great time with some great people. Few breakages nothing major unless you count spinning my caliper bracket major,
list to fix is rear leaves, brakes and driveshaft, along with the long put off bumpstops that need to get done.

Well both aal were broken on each side, so yanked them out added new pins and plan to run it set back an inch to help with driveshaft length as I'm installing new Driveshaft thats balanced and with a new joint. So bushings were shot on shackles as well so decided to go with lift shackles and kill two birds on stone. Plan is to add a traction bar later. So putting everything back together tomorrow and hope to take a test drive with the rock lights on.

Rear end bolted up and calipers on just need to run new brake line and bleed brakes and mount tires and can pull the rig out for a test drive.

Late start today so didn't get a chance to mess with rig much but doubled checked brake lines and one I have for replacement is to short so going to pick up another oone and make the drivers side longer so it will fit on passengerside.
Then I have a couple stickers to install for that bit of extra HP.

Better in the snow with 4wd. Riding sucks on the road, well known. But the heat works great even have to roll the window down.
