Got the cab painted today. Now just throwing it back together. Will probably get the bed on Thursday or Friday and get everything buttoned up over the weekend. Hopefully will head over to the DMV monday or tuesday to get a tag for her and get her on the road!

Got the rest of the cab painted yesterday. well kinda the driver side fender gave me fits. something was on the fender when I went to paint it so I had to strip it down and start over so thats only thing left. Got the bed on last night. sstamb0925 came over and help me maneuver that massive thing back onto the frame rails. Wont be too much longer now till I have her on the road and get some miles on her as a '99.

Got the tail lights all wired up today. Set it up like the XJ tail lights Brake on top, turn signal in the middle and reverse on the bottom. However the top two bulbs share the parking lights.

Parking light:


Turn signal:

Modified the 94 Dakota tank I had. Installed a vent neck and a roll over valve. Was at Lowes the other day for some other things and was snooping around and found some pvc parts that I figured I could make work. Now I just need to find a hose to connect the filler necks together then install it.

Got the tank in. Fits all like it should. Drove the Jeep around my neighborhood. feels like it should. then again I can't notice a whole lot under 20mph. I have come to the realization that Im not going to make my goal of taking the truck on the Christmas trip we have every year. It just needs too much and I just cant afford what it all needs at the moment or at least before the trip. So Im just going to slow down a bit. Move the goal to around april and try and take it on the opening weekend at Uwharrie. So we'll see. Cause right now it needs a front axle (thats non disconnect), steering box, a few things for the interior, exhaust system and windshield. here is a picture of it outside the garage for once.

I've been busy with school and pulling up carpet at the house so it still might be a while before I get back to it.
