Ordered one of tg air filters for the 2.7..should've done my homework before hand. I figured it would mount up to stock size. How foolish of me

Now I have to modify the aluminum heat shield/ mud and dust cover to fit. Originally I planned to put battery in back but I was determined to get it up front under the hood. One step forward...two steps back

Worked on mounting rear suck down winch . Need to seal it up. I'm sure it's not gonna last long down there but we shall see. Also got my wheels back from powder coating today. I'm happy with the color. Unfortunately I'm going to have to run a wheel spacer on the front to clear the caliper for now. I may end up going a different way with the brakes eventually....maybe, I'm sure il run it like that till these axles get sold.. on to the pics

Got a little time in this weekend. Baseball started again for the boy so it's been a little slow in the shop

Speakers will be mounted like the passenger side. Cans came from crawl tunes and they are nicely built. Hoping to have all the tires done this week. They are very time consuming

The small unit under the cb is a kenwood marine amplifier. Bluetooth inputs so no head unit required. Pretty slick . Works great cause I have no room left to put anything lol

Huge day yesterday!!. Finally got to fire this thing up after so long. I need to pull the electric fans out and give theme a cleaning or something because the are very hard starting. There is a vacuum leak somewhere I need to track down. But overall this little motor is smooth. Was definitely the motivation I needed to get this thing finished up.

-clean up lots of wiring
-exhaust
-install rear anti rock sway bar
-Get belts back from corbeau and put rear seat back in
-jump it
