Any new suggestions about the drivshaft falling out? Right now I'm leaning towards a new spacer between the transfer case and skid plate becuase mine doesn't have nuts on the bottom and I don't think it's bolted into the transmission like it should be.

Where are the CCV/PCV hoses actually supposed to go? I think I am going to nutter it soon. Do I need to adjust the timing? I can probably rent a light at Autozone.

Where should I put my new sticker?

Mine says Florida because I got it in a gift shop while on vacation but you get the idea. I don't ever have my hard top on so what are some other suggestions?

Ok. Thanks.
New question of the day is Corbeau Moabs or Bajas?

Just ordered the Moabs.
I have been tinkering with my carb some more and noticed that after it sits for <24 hours the float bowl is bone dry. This causes it to be exceedingly difficult to start. I haven't determined whether it is due to evaporation of if it leaking past the accelerator pump or what? Any ideas?

The seats got to Commerce City, Co at 11:45 so we'll see how long they take from there. The started in Salt Lake City.

The seats are somewhere in Ga according to UPS and should be here on Tuesday.

Dad and I bought a welder today.
We tried to lengthen the stock driveshaft today with a piece of a CV shaft but it was too flexible with two U_Joints in one end and bound up on itself so we cut an extra driveshaft we had lying around down to size and will weld it up tomorrow. Should be about 2 inches longer. Hopefully I can get rid of the t-case drop. We'll see. I measured without it so if I have to put it back in it shouldn't mess me up too bad. I can always cut more off. I'll get pics of the ghetto lengthened shaft and then the new one we made. Anyone know how to balance a shaft at home? Could it be done like an oversized tire and filled with a media like airsoft bb's?

New seats got here today. Were sitting on the porch when I got home from football. They look great. Hopefully I can mount them tomorrow and maybe finish up the driveshaft.

Got the seats all put in tonight and also my driveshaft we made. It has a fresh coat of green paint,(we'll see how long that lasts) and got it up to 60 out on the highway without it feeling like it was gonna come apart. Will get pics when the camera charger shows up.

Cut my fender flares today. They look pretty good. Should keep me from mashing up my fenders.
