I'll go first.



I'm going to try to keep the TOTW to weeks and not months.

I'm going to need your help doing so. so feel free to send me a PM with your suggestions.

I'm also going to finish my rig and get it on the trail.

A New Year's resolution to buckle up (at least with lap belt) everytime I get in the rig.

Also, snag some more magnets to put into the bottom of my koozies...with the windshield folded down you can just fling the koozie (with beer) up onto the hood when you get into some chit.

Been tooling with my rig for years now, building a frame, motor, tranny/t-case/adapter, axles, harness, cage, fuel cell, saginaw steering, pedals, blah blah blah. I wanna drive it, just once.

I learned alot this year, like welding, bending, fabricating. Now I just want a rig that runs! That's my resolution!

1st - Fix all my Body Damage, make it look clean again.

2nd - Replace rockers

Got a bunch of stuff after that. Skids, axles, possible exo, reworking some of the sheetmetal. Well see how much extra I get done.

learning to weld / purchasing welding equipment is BIG on my list. it's costing too much to not finish my projects myself...

1) Teach 13 year old daughter to drive on trail.

2) Cover 10 year old daughter in mud, this may take wider tires or recentering of Hummer wheels...

3) Fuel injection.

Get a new motor in my junk before March, so I can go to TDS.. Thats the big one..
Next would be, get my suspension reworked, and build a new full cage to suit me better than the one Ive got.

Finish (my barely started) 4 link rear

put together sometype of front cage setup (it probably won't be pretty without a bender, but at least it will be better than nothing).

Shread my 33's so I can justify buying something better :rolleyes:

avoid starting winter projects I can't finish until august :D
