Finally got some pics uploaded.

Loaded and pullin out for Hardrock and Jeeptoberfest on Friday morning.




Only have a few pics from Hardrock. The upper radiator hose blew off about 5 mins after it came off the trailer (easy fix) and ended up breaking the gear box about an hour later (not so easy fix, no one had a replacement). Also bent the tie rod on the rock garden.














So it missed out on Jeeptoberfest so I only wheeled the LJ there. Oredered a new box from Napa on Monday and picked it up in Tuesday. Wanted to go ahead and do hydro assist but can't justify spending $1000 on it now with Christmas, Wyatt's birthday and a vaction trip coming up. Took it down to my pasture last night and played with it some more.

Quick update...replaced the p/s pump and turns out that wasn't the problem. I think something happened inside the gear box cause I don't get any fluid out of the return side. Going to pull it off tues and take it back to napa.

Got the gear box swapped out and installed yesterday, everything works good now. Also got the headlights and front marker lights in, I'll try to get a pic tomorrow when I get home from work.

Lights in. Used what I have for now, eventually going to put the clear lens LEDs all the way around.






Painted the bezel black

Today I got a tach installed and got it tagged and insured. Took it for a quick drive down the road and boy was that an experience! The gear box bracket bolts had loosened up a bit and caused all kinds of slop in the steering. Tonight I ordered a M.O.R.E. heavy duty steering box mount that also moves the box foward 1 1/4" so it will have clearance to put the tie rod up on the high steer arms. Tomorrow I'm going to try to cut down the front shackles.

Got the front shackles cut down today. IIRC the bolt holes were 1 1/2" apart so I lost 3/4" lift and it sits more level now and handles better too. Battery was dead in the camera so had to use my phone.

What I started with, getting rid of the top hole




Put two shackles together to mark a line






Cut down




Back on. They don't look that great, but will work till the 4 link rear and 3 link front get built




El cheapo mini tach




Center console, need to clean it up




Did some trading and ended up with a Tuffy storage box. It needs cleaned up also.










Then took it out for a quick spin and got harassed by the law




Luckily it turned out to be one of my friends who saw me drive by and couldn't resist pullin me over
