Dad informed me that I'm going to have to do something about that driver seat, he hadn't been in it since I moved it right before I tore it down........I guess thats what happens when I'm 5'6 and HE is 6'6.........

I got the other cage-c/o mount tied in last night, looking for a place to mount the orbital and worked on getting the radiator in there.

Bullshit! the only thing your dad is worried about is where he will keep his beer so it doesn't spill.

Most of the time it's in his hand anyway.

You are correct, he was looking around for cup holders and I told him they aren't in there yet, he seemed very concerned. I think swiveling beverage holders have been requested by him more than once.

Thanks, I hope to have it done in the next month or so. At least have it moving on its own and finish up the details close there after.

I would like to take credit for the tie rod but awacjeep came up with that. Pretty badd ass if you ask me, I carry an east wing and some 16d's in my tool bag for trail fixes.

I brought the old girl home today to finish up. With a red faced dad, a whole lot of cussing, some ingenuity and a few bud lights she is now sitting in my garage.

We had to get creative with steering, the mule got a workout a couple of times.....I didn't have the winch on the jeep so I had to use the old trusty come-a-long. FN sucked ass, got it home and she got away from us getting it off the trailer, had to use the tractor and loader to lift the front end. Almost had a trailer light casualty but we pulled it off.

I got the remote oil filter plumbed and mocked up, happel started extending the fuel lines and I finished them up, I also drained the transmission, changed the filter and refilled it. I also got my new Premier Power Welder alternator on and a new belt. Then thiers the list to finish, it keeps growing.

Looks good.

Are you planning to wrap those braided lines that run by the exhaust?



Your sticker collection is really nice.

I was planning on getting some of that heat shield stuff from advance auto and slip it over the lines until it gets past the header.

I like my sticker collection too, If I only had some high tech chromo expanded metal stickers to put on my jeep.

got some work done tonight, Happel got the trans tunnel cover fabbed up, looks great, I started on the radiator, got the lower mount tacked in, trimmed the grill to fit, got the fan mocked up, finished patching up the wiring on the rock lights, ordered a bunch of parts today. I want this thing done!

Looks good.

I would leave the vise grips on the radiator....custom look that I have NEVER seen on the trail (or at the mall).

Tunnel cover looks good.

Happy - dont let Eberle know you have those sheetmetal skills. He is ready to do duct work in the lower level and might be inclined to ask a favor

I'll be down for the first annual Farmer-B'day-Bottoms-Bonanza on May 4th.

I plan to drive this the whole weekend so I expect it to be prep's, shaken down, fueled up, and full of Big City.

That Big City goes down smooth after it eats the lining out of your throat.

I'm in for the birfday bash.

Bring your gas card and a loaded cooler and maybe I'll let you ride in BAJK. Last time I let a rookie drive they caved in my rocker.

I finished up the radiator mount. Its a cradle style, cradled on the bottom and attached to the hoop on top, its nice to be able to remove the grill and fenders and not have to pull the radiator. Happel got the transmission shifter in and adjusted, he started painting interior parts and I got the 14 bolt sealed up, its ready for shafts and oil.

I have no problem warming the passenger seat on your 8,800 lb chromed out woods whip.

Last time I wheeled your junk somebody bashed in the hood and dumped tranny fluid all over the floor....................I bet you are glad that rookie bought that POS.

No more chrome in summer trim. The rookie has done his best to kill the old Jeep but it just keeps asking for more.

I got quite a few things done tonight, started mocking up the steering, got my steering cooler placed, I'll finish it up tomorrow. I painted the transmission tunnel cover, mounted the heater switch, and started working on the rear end.

I cycled the rear suspension one more time with the linked joints tightened up to make sure everything was going to cycle ok. Its as good as its going to get.

It was a bad night for welding, I got the end caps welded to the rear hoops. First ark I struck some spatter drooped through a hole in my pants and burnt my BAG! On to the other side, fishing up the last portion of the second cap, layed my arm against the first one and burnt the f#$% out of it.

Got the rear hub seals changed out, bent the first set on both sides, got the spindle nuts torqued, shafts in, and the brakes on.

Looks good.

You might want to put a temp gauge on your steering.

I would be concerned that it might run too cool with that monster cooler on there.

Maintaining maximum viscocity will be key for your extreme rock bouncing style.
