Worked on the trans crossmember today. Ran out of gas for the mig, but it's almost finished. Once I get the exhaust done I'm going to make a skid for the trans and motor and tie into it.

Picked up a shift of overtime today so as long as the Dana 60 I found is still available it will be in my garage next week. It's supposed to have new hubs, seals, bearings and high steer arms for $800.

One step closer to a Dana 60! The front and rear axles should be sold Friday. Found a few 60s at decent prices, going to make some phone calls tomorrow at work to see if I can get one Thursday.
