Cut off the passenger rear upper shock mount (perch). it was rusty, and so was the frame, so I had to cut out a notch from the frame and I will work on getting the new piece of frame welded in, and then manufacture a new upper shock mount.

I probably drank a few too many when I swapped belts out, I put the new one on so that the water pump/clutch fan rotate backwards....doh! I'll fix it tom.

That sucks man, I had considered their tires for this build but decided to go with a pair of Goodyears from Discount, a company I've had GREAT customer service from. After your experience, Im glad I did. I won't buy a set of tires from anywhere else even though they have no local stores here.

Yeah. That's a load of crap. Tirerack should've replaced it fully and took it up with D.C. in order to get a new tire for their inventory. Stupid.

The thing is I never expected a discount seller to do much. I did expect a name brand tire to take care of it quickly and easily though. Instead it cost me another $150.

Roof (what's left of it) is off and cleaned. Jeep is under a tarp so now just waiting for the speedy stitcher and some black waxed nylon thread

Hoping to at least fix the seams so I can continue to run it like a safari top. If all goes well i'll put new window zippers in and have a decent top. If not... It's a learning experience and I'll shell out the cash for a new roof if I need to

Worked some more on the 8.8 swap. It's going slow. One of the RuffStuff U-bolts had the threads cut wrong on one side and fought with it for a couple hours before giving in a buying a parts store special just to continue on. After I got that sorted, I accidentally dropped one of my ujoint caps and spilled all the needle bearings out. Had to waste even more time cleaning them all and re packing them into the cap. :/

Not the best day of work and I'm still not done. It would be nice if my friends actually helped when they said they would. Been flying alone on this for the past two days and it's a PITA and slow going.

Hopefully I'll have it wrapped up tomorrow. Not having my rig to drive sucks!

Oh and to top it off I found out my daughter broker her arm last night. Her and her mother were out of town visiting her grandparents and she fell and broke her wrist. Crummy day today

Time for a sixer...

Cheers
