Yeah were coming to Windrock in February for grand slam winter if thats the time your talking about. Probably wont stay in the same cabin since well have upwards of 10-15 people coming most likely.

OHH BOY... look what happened today.



Got a late start, but basically I got everything bolted up on the rear. All I have to do is put the springs in, jack it up and then put the shocks on. Tommorow Ill finish that up early in the morning and then put on my radiator support and brakelines up front. Then when I get some friends to come over were gonna breeze through putting the lift on the front hopefully. I may trim the fenders if I have time or might just leave them for a little while. Im really hoping to have this thing on my 33s by Thursday. I think sunday the stiffeners will be welded on, then I can start focusing on the 8.8 again.

Yeah Im loving the power, going to be even better when I throw the 8.8 and 44 with 4.56s

Got a little farther today. Had to stop when I went to put my control arms in and realized im missing two of those damn RE metal inserts that go into the bushings. This same thing happened to me last time. If anyone has two extras laying around id definitely pay for some express shipping to get them out here.

Better pic. Also I found those two RE inserts. I wrenched a little this morning but Im heading to my cousins house for turkey day. Hopefully will have some time to wrench when I get back. Loosing daylight at like 5:00 is miserable. Tommorow the fronts going to get finished up though. Happy day.

Finished it last night. Drives smooth as could be, besides rubbing and my exhaust pipe slamming into my trackbar every large bump I go over. Dont have my digital camera at the moment, may be a little bit for some pictures.
