    Rear Disk Conversion arrived from Lugnut4x4. Looks great. I was not impressed by the "CHINA" bearings and went ahead an ordered TIMKEN's from Amazon.

    Start search for donor body for The Beast. Found a possible donor in the form of a 1989 K5. No engine and I will have to transport it back to Philly but it may be worth it.
