    I still have to:

    - Put on the Hydraulic assist
    - Put in the fuel cell
    - Install the Rock Lights
    - Install the Floor Shifter
    - Get the Bead Locks on.

    Should be doable. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I just need to build a new t-case crossmember since I destroyed mine on a rock a few weeks back, it's bent up a good 2-3" or so... I may try and get my doubler setup in before then but I doubt it.

    I need to install the doubler, 52" springs and built a new crossmember. Maybe some front diff protection. 'Cause you know that those curbs in City Market are murder on the front diff /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    Damn, too much to do and too little time and money to do it. Especially since the truck got smashed up, up in the hills /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif That really set me back quite a bit.

    Oh well, now I just want to finish installing the new windows and get it into good running condition again and hopefully get a d60 up front. If I can do that I'll be happy to go to Moab just to run some of the easier runs again.

    Still haven't had 4wd since I put the new Iroks on 3 months ago /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

Needs a few new studs a spring pad and a spring plate and its good to go. Oh and for some reason the steering arm was installed on the passenger side /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Install rebuilt engine, tranny, and, t case. 63's in the rear. Lock the rear. (possibly lock the front with crossover if money allows) swap front axles and finish stylish new paint job. Also weld up all the new holes in the firewall since the rewiring and firewall clearing that has recently occured.

    Since I'm mostly stock (285/75R16's on 3/4 ton axles and stock springs) I'd like to get a set of rock sliders on my truck before the trip and get the 6.2L diesel swapped in. Plus upgrading to hydraulic clutch at the same time. Not much left but the diesel swap may be the biggest hurdle if I find it needs to be rebuilt.

    I should have most of everything done this week but the assist steering. Might be nice to be ready with some time to spare for once. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif
