It helps that I live right next to West V. It lets me get away with a lot more trashy things.

Got a little bit of shop time after work tonight and did my oil change. Tomorrow hopefully ill have more shop time and I can throw my coils, control arms, and shackle brackets on. After that's done I probably won't do much to the jeep other than maybe a track bar. I need to save for my move to Ohio this summer and once I'm there I'm starting a hot rod project so I'm not sure where ill go with this project.

It's a 1930-31 ford model a. Either a pick up or a 5 window coupe. I started a 29 model a sedan in college in my fabrication classes but I got home and had to sell it so I've been itching to start another one ever since. I've got a 283 and a 3 speed out of a 1958 Chevy pickup for a power train and I'm going to try to pick up a body and frame once I move.

Sounds bad ***. I can't decide what my next project is gonna be but I really want to build a late 40s early 50s sedan hot rod. I want it to be a sleeper though nothing fancy.

Sent from under my Jeep.

I think I'm leaning more towards a pick up at this point. That'll be cool though! My grandpa has a 47 ford sedan on his farm and it's just been chilling there since he parked it in the 80s. I want it! Haha

Got my new coils and control arms in the front this morning and my shackle relocation brackets in.

Now my leaf spring doesn't look happy haha time for new ones. If anyone knows where to get a good 2" lift leaf pack let me know. But it's way flexier in the rear now! Very happy with them.

Doesn't look as if it was tied in anywhere but the stock mounts. May want to fix that...

It goes back to the steering box bolts as well as the stock mounting location. The bumper it's self didn't move just that corner bent downward.
