Yeap - Just got the Capri right before i left for Iraq - it's my Drag project, the Saleen is being parted out and put back to stock and then being sold.

I have 5 vehicles right now but going down to 2, the Capri, and the Wrangler

Capri is just basic GT40 setup right now, not even a trip to the track yet but have slicks and big and littles waiting to go on, need to give a tune then head out.

The Saleen was Worked - T-56 viper spec, IRS, Coilovers, vortech, etc was my baby forever, but selling it and the Jeep and Capri will be IT for a LONG time.

Next weekend the jeep will grow, then it will slow Down but the Capri will pick up - working deal for a 70mm turbo setup with Blow Thru Carb and good for about 580 rwhp on the heads I have, with the Aluminums I have sitting in the garage I'll be more than able to split the block down the valley;-)

that's cool. I have a 92 fox with a vortech under the hood. It goes pretty good.

Have 5x 33x12.50-15 Duratrac's sitting in the hallway

1 3 inch BDS lift

1 set of Mirror and Light mounts

4 1.5 inch wheel Spacers

Expecting all of this to go on Saturday - wish me luck, expect before and After Pictures

Probably not alot of Flexing before and after Pic's, mainly after though

That is one clean lil Sahara. Should look sick with the lift and tires. I love stock v. lifted before and after pics.

You might have to drop your t-case down using spacers.

I'm prepared for that but going to attempt it without for a few days, plan on MML and SYE/DS combo but budget doesnt' allow at this time.

It will be driven Home at the minimum and maybe about 3 times as i have another 3 vehicles to choose from while i would be waiting on the Transfer case drop, hoping it will be fine and I can just order up Rugged Ridge SYE and CV DS for 395 and get it thrown in soon.

Ugh, didn't get the lift, or tires put on today, was finishing up my final projects for a class, and it has taken ALL day

Have a chance in the morning to get it done hopefully, If I can get it done start to finish in 6 hours to include mounting and balancing - I will be able to do everything but alignment tomorrow hopefully, otherwise it will be about 3 weeks before I get another chance - GRRrr

Still no lift on, will get the tires and rims mounted up this week without the lift on and just do no off camber stuff at all, might do the sway bar and track bar stuff as well, we'll see, how bad do you think it would rub with 33x12.50's with no lift on stock rims with 1.5 inch spacers for normal driving till I got the lift on?

I did get my Warrior products Mirror and Light moutns on - ordering an overnight top/cover for it today as well.

Have had the lift but no time, so have a lift and 5 33's sitting in my living room, but that didn't stop me from finding a new playground and scuffing up some skid's;-)

All in all, wiht the rear LSD and Dana 44 it's pretty capable, with the lift and tires, it should be fun

When it gets Locked front and rear - we are on a diffferent playing field.

From tonight

Ocala Here I come, picked up another new toy for the camping trip this morning as well

Smith and Wesson M&P .40 cal with Night sights and shoulder holster - 200 rounds plus the ones I have laying around to be put through it, Very nice gun, fires way better than my Glock 23 .40, and the trijicon sites and adjustable grip was awesome as I can let my girl get her confidence up as well

She Grew today

Lift went on Like Butter, about 6 hours from start to finish and only that long because after I did everything i decided to flip the rear shocks and mount them upside down as they were hitting on the coil bucket.

Have to go back to get my 5th tire mounted tomorrow but my tire carrier isn't here so it will stay sitting in the garage for a few days just wanted it mounted and balanced.

Swaybar disco's work Awesome and the Flex is INSANE, couldnt pull a tire and I've gotten 4 ft of air in these spots before today.

Had to install the transfer case drop but hope that does'nt stay on too long.

Recieved my Rampage top, but got the wrong header bar, so going to put the doors on in the morning for the camping trip but have no top other than the bikini, while ordering that I realized I don't have door surrounds so ordered those up as well..

Freaking Loving this now man, LOVING IT



























More to come, count on it

got some shakedown runs this weekend in - picked up easily 10,000 scratches but most are small and will buff out

She did Great, could NOT be happier with the tire selection, put about 500 miles on the Jeep and easily 90 miles of trails most of which were sand, some off camber stuff in the sand but not alot of action shots, just when i got out to pose;-)

Will try to upload pic's tonight The Duratrac's are Awesome in the sand and only hit light mud but they cleaned out Great
