    In less than 2 weeks, this is supposed to be roaring through a mud pit on 39.5" Boggers powered by a 396. From now until then I have 3 available days to work on it. All I can say is I hope I stay motivated.

    Needs:
    Replace throwout bearing sleeve
    Weld crack in frame (done today)
    Drill and extract broken off bolts in Dana 60 housing
    Buy clutch and replace flywheel ring gear
    Assemble remainder and install 396 with all accessories
    Somehow fit the full 3" dual exhaust system into place without cutting or welding
    Put front nose clip back on
    Fire it up and break it in
    Change tires, mount 39.5" Boggers on 12" wide aluminum rims
    Bolt rear seat and seatbelts in
    Put a rear bumper on it (optional)
