    Is this a wish list, or actually in the works? In the works for me (besides a new job) hill4wd shackles, ORD offset zero rate for rear, rear c/v shaft, front 4.56's, front shaft spacer, steering stabilizers, 2'' add a leaf on back right only, rear limiting straps, rear lock right, and if Steve Frisbie gets them figured out a MOoffroad over the top front axle truss. But if you are talkin wish list, I'll keep it short and realistic: front Fox 14'' piggy-back shox, chromo front axle shafts, 12 bolt full floater kit, rear detroit locker, crossover steering, roll cage, flared fiberglass front fenders.....

    After 4 years of building I am mostly where I want to be and no major changes planned. The only one that has crossed my mind is ORD greasable's and possibly a Springer style rear suspension.
    After the last round of mods that I recently completed I'm pretty happy with what I have.
    Little stuff I have been toss around is some additions to my Roll cage including a over head with the CB and Stereo mounted. Something simular to the Tuffy overhead. Add a couple braces to the cage like a tie bar between a couple of the legs.
    Thought about getting a JD2 and building a new cage but that's a wish but may never happen. If I do get one then I'll do a full cage like the ORD blazer.
    Refine some of my storage stuff including Some mounts for axle shafts and drive shafts.
    Onboard air. My A/C still has freon and other than a bad clutch and a electrical problem that seems to have myseriously fix itself after 4 years of not working I'm not sure I want to destroy it if I can get it to work. These Hot GA summers are brutal. a little A/C would be nice.
    I have several ideas of how to make onboard air without using the factory A/C. One includes running a York or a REAL compressor head off of the PTO (I have the drive alread). Going to something like a Quick Air or even a CO tank is other options. The CO tank would be nice because of the nice dry air for my tools. Storing it is another story. I want it hidden and not sure I would feel good with the tank mounted under the truck.
    I need to find a way to effectivly criple the truck so it can't be stolen. I don't want any electronics like an alarm that could get wet. I have good insurance and if the Get My CB there is not deductable. Just want to make sure they can't get the truck. Generaly if the truck isn't in my driveway (I live in a decent low crime area) I'm not far from it.
