    Let's see... I got the axles, tires, crossover, rear disc, 454, hmmm... OH YEA, THATS RIGHT... I still need matching gears in my axles!!! [​IMG][​IMG] I also want to work on getting the ol' BBC fuel injected by then... then there is still the small issue of bumpers.

    Anyone got a great line to feed the wife to get the purchase of a HS9500i Warn approved? [​IMG][​IMG]

    Re: Only 212 days till MOAB! what is everyone working on?

    Nothing[​IMG], I am not even sure if I can make it or not. Between now and April all that is planned is picking up parts and swapping in the th400/205. I might also get the crossover steering done by then too. After the winter weather lets up then there will be a mad rush to get as much done as I can.

    New speaker boxes so I'll have a place to sleep,other than that I think my rig will make it, just not on any of the trails though[​IMG] you guy's will have to drag me up the trails. [​IMG] If theres any curbs, you guy's can watch as I flex it out...[​IMG]

    Re: Only 212 days till MOAB! what is everyone working on?

    Maybe someone out there can manufacture a few sets of rocksliders for us "MOAB OR BUST" folks, sell them for a itsy-bitsy-teeny-weeny profit, and help all us folks out that can't fabricate cool stuff for out rigs. $125 a set maybe? Hell, I'd even spend $150 for a complete kit.

    Any takers?

    Re: Only 212 days till MOAB! what is everyone working on?

    Let's see, get the tube bender up and running so I'll get the new nerf bars and bumpers built and maybe a little trip money. Relocate the rear shock mounts and hopefully a lift and definately new tires. I don't even know if I'm going or not. The wife found out the other night and was deadset against it, but I'll work my butt off to go.

    The whole damn truck!

    Engine, front axle (Yes still, I have had next to no time since we moved), shackle flip, doubler (still have to save up for it), ARRGGGHHH! I feel like it will never be done.

    A computer once beat me at chess, but it was no match for me at kick boxing.

    hopefully, the 82 will be pulling the 72, if I can just find the right trailer
