working on the rig! This 'getting ready' stuff wears you out!

Monday-install hi steer on the 40; satellite radio mount
Tuesday-dual circuit brake master conversion; intstall Metaltech 1/2 doors.
Wednesday-start fabbing new skidplate; install front rack from the 45.
Thursday-start fabbing overhead rack, continue skidplate, run out of welding wire:shaking:
Friday- finish skidplate, rough out overhead rack.
Saturday-finish overhead rack, remove recently reinstalled towbar [YES, the missus has agreed to ride shotgun THE WHOLE TRIP in the open 40]:hardcore:

Don't think I'm gonna fix the Orion.:p

WHERE ARE MY SANDALS?:smokin:



See y'all soon!

I know what you mean!!!

I built a new skid plate (old one was scary:eek:)

Re built the rock sliders (tied'em into the frame this time :shaking:)

Got the York dialed in (dual air sources... over kill, but something I've been wanting to do :grinpimp:)

Played with my "load plan" today to lighten up things a bit...

Yes... I'm getting excited :D

Gutted front axle to replace pinion bearing, almost got it all back together last night, but time and beers said otherwise! Will have to finish it up today or tomorrow. See you kids at the Springs...
