I believe that was the most common answer from the office pool at Moab
I also believe that I suggested that we just take his 241 apart and fix it, but no we had to put a junk yard unit in with no VSS thinking we were all cool and crap. Then "have to bang shift it" cause it's the wrong thing.

Baba is a hard headed poopy head.

We also discussed doing the R&R for him in the parking lot, but old man motivation got the best of us

All true statements, wanted to try out what was quickest and easiest to not pull a bunch of people in to help me so they could enjoy themselves.

I do thank you all who helped and even gave words of wisdom.

For Blazer Bash prep? As in you're coming to Blazer Bash next year? Or did you just post in the wrong thread?
They are mods planned to make it to this year's BB... but next year will have to make up for missing this year.

I rolled up the driver side window on the Jimmy. Rained Thursday night and I did not have the room to move it back into the shop. Now I have to crawl through the passenger side to get in it. I have not fixed anything from last year.

I need to fix some stuff and sell it. Not worth keeping for 1 trip a year.

I've got the S-10 torn down, the clutch wasn't too fond of the Nitrous so it killed itself. Swapping the clutch out snowballed into a lot of fab work, the advanced adapters bellhousing was cracked due to rocks getting tossed around by the clutch. I had a factory NV4500 chevy bellhousing so I swapped to that which reminded me that the AA bellhousing is 1/4" deeper than the factory one... Exhaust mods, trans mount mods and transfer case mount mods followed suit.

I have the parts to fix my rear locker as well, so that will need to go in.

When I was hooking up the front driveshaft I realized I have a TON of backlash. Those are the gears M4O installed for me a few BBs ago, so I need to tear that down and see if I need new gears again.

Other than that, it's ready to go! We're going to Sand Hollow in April so it will be ready before then, then I'll have to fix whatever I break there before BB.

My list grew a lot, but have plenty of time.

New rear suspension is the biggest one( on order), also would like to replace the factory trans crossmember for a fabricated one.

You never have plenty of time. Quit saying that.

Once the springs come in, it's headed to the fab guy pending if I get shocks in time. I wasn't going to do anything this year but landed on a nice side job where I needed to spend it somewhere as payment.
