I really want to do a clean comp cut. Something similar to this


But with clean taillights like this

I'm looking to take a welding class starting next Monday. If I'm able to get in it maybe I can learn the basics and do the comp cut this summer

Cb is in. i got my whole setup for $120 from westcoastmall.net (thanks biebs). which included the firestik splitter i got so i can use my cb antenna as my radio antenna since i broke that off wheeling in big bear.

I tried to do the cleanest wiring job possible. All the wires inside are hidden and i ran the cb straight to the battery through the firewall

I had to extend the power cable from the cb in order to reach the battery

i forgot to post this a week or two ago. i went to cleghorn with mikez and his friend. i hit a rock and my drag link end popped out and my tie rod got bent. which made me not able to turn left. because the drag link is all shot, when we tried to tighten it, it would just spin. and the bent tie rod was hitting some of the other mounts on the axle

we put a jack under the drag link end to give it pressure and we were able to tighten it back up.



and then we bent back the tie rod with a fat cheater pole mike had





it was a fun day

No lucky only half the bolt head was damaged. So I used a bolt out socket and it managed to bite. Still mad about my window. But its oh well. Also I blew out ny ss. So my bds one came in today going to install if I feel better.

I'm planning to go to Big Bear Forest Fest on June 15-17.
I just wanted to make a checklist of things I need/want to get done before I go

Need:

Sliders
New steering(probably OTK)
Full size spare
Fire extinguisher mounted nicely
CB professionally tuned

Want(but not completely necessary):
Get Bump stops dialed in perfectly. I think mine are a tad too short right now
Some type of roof mounted light bar with 4 lights
Get an alignment
np231
Front locker
Wheels with less backspacing


It's been a little harder recently to save up for parts being that I'm in school now. I went from working 5-6 days a week to only 2-3. I get out of school in a week so after that, I will be able to put in some decent hours

Good reason to swap to a 231 or 242 but sucks cause I'm already pinching pennies for forest fest

Sliders are in

image-2514827714.jpg



image-2369778396.jpg



image-3694419584.jpg

I bed lined the top half but I did it before I installed them and didn't like the results. I'm gunna sand it all down and do it over. I got the sliders about 2 months used and they have a little bit of normal wear on them so when I sand it I'm gunna try to make them look as new as possible so at least I start off with some fresh looking ones. Can't guarantee they will stay like that tho



image-2474901268.jpg


And I'm working on swapping in a np242 as well. The output seal was slightly leaking so I'm gunna replace that before I install it. Can't wait to finally have 2 wheel drive and 4 part time

My steering was about as bad as it could be but still working.

I picked up a used steering setup from Craigslist for only $40
It came off a 2006 LJ with only 30k miles and it looked pretty clean. It will get me through the next month or so until I can order HD steering

image-2265976541.jpg

Did a quick rattle can job to make it look as clean as possible

Here you can see a comparison of the old drag link pitman arm end vs the new

image-1742130451.jpg

Pretty much all the ends looked like this

I forgot to take a picture of after it was in. I'll get one later
