    Got the STC top on today and a few piddly thing cleaned up. Also picked up this bling billet grant steering wheel and hub for $75. Friends dad bought it for his 4X (the marron and beige 80s cucv I've posted before) but didn't like the 14" wheel so went 15". He paid around $250 for it all so I figured was a good score even though more bling than I would normal lay down for :wink1:

    edit: I was bored a while back and waxed most the rig except the front drivers side fender, you can see how well the paint shined up. Actually the pass side I waxed more and it is alot brighter than the driver side that is in the sun in these pics.

    Dude, your rig looks great :bow: :bow: !!

    Can you post a full, side shot of it? I'd like to see your tire/wheel placement with the wheel wells. Is your front axle moved from stock location?

    installed the wheel and CD player today. Also installed a few curcuit breakers under the dash and using them for protected junction boxes basically. One for hot, acc, and run possitions so I can wire in accessories and just put a ringlet on it and on the stud of the breaker, make sense? Anyways here are a few pics and a pic of the front fender head on on its own. I left the rig in the shop so couldn't really get a good full on profile shot yet for ya.

    Sweet rig.I plan on having my doubler setup,hydro assist and front locker done by the end of summer and it will probably wheel a lot like yours.That's beautiful country-anywhere near Bozeman?I usually spend my winters 'boarding in Utah and once in a while take a trip to Big Sky to ride.Very pretty up there.Looks like you have all the land a person could ask for to wheel on.

    I am about 200 miles from Bozeman, I get that way often. Actually look on the powell 4x web site in my sig under the photo gallery and the hells canyone run a few months ago was not to far from Bozeman. The clb own 120 acres too with all kinds of terrain plus we are an hour in almost every direction from mountains. I wouldn't leave this area for nothing.

    was going to haul it in to town today and start getting floor panels ordered to fix rust and start on the cage stuff but we are having a blizzard here. Major things to do are to change to my 4.56/ disk/ detroit 14FF rear and put a fuel tank in it instead of the temporary fuel cell thats in it now and then drive shafts
