Nick I saw you mention this in Jeffro's thread, but you HAVE to do that locker switch mod! Oh my gosh it's just plain wonderful. The 2 high locked rear is super fun doing donuts! (Truthfully that's the only time I see use of using it for 2wd, but it's cool to have anyway)

Yea I'll do it over the winter, just slightly lazy and don't like messing with wires, but with everyone saying how easy it is, I'm sure I'll be fine. Plus one of my buddies did it to his Rubi a while back and another, that actually likes wiring, is about to do it to his and said he'd do mine too.

I would also like to make a switch panel while I'm at it tho. My buddy did one, just cut out the plastic and put in a piece of aluminum with all new switches and I love the look. Plus then while I have all that out and doing a panel, I'd like to do an in cab winch control.... Haha see the snowball effect is keeping me from doing it.

Not as of late. Just got a trans leak fixed with a new pan and Lubelocker and decided to wait til spring before I tackle the RMS. Got everything I need for that tho.

And just have a bunch of stuff awaiting install that is just not either easily done in a day outside in my driveway or without the help of a buddy and a welder and a press.

I got waiting to install:

Poly Performance front cage
DOM for rear cage additions
Swag Frame Tie-ins
Ten Factory chromo rear shafts
Riddler Diff rear cover
Ruff Stuff battery box
CJ tailgate
F250 shock towers/BBCS 11" shocks for outboard

I think thats it... haha

Oh and I still want to fig out some type of cargo rack for the back to hold a couple Action Packers and a cooler.

A guy/friend in another club I'm in runs a auto shop and has done numerous regears. He's going to do it for next to nothing after hours, as long as I take the axles out... Sooo, whenever I decide I want to tear down, and take the axles out of the rig, which with this weather, who knows...

And at the same time, I'll throw in the rear chromos and Riddler diff cover.

But I'm going to be starting on the cage in the next few weeks, so I'd say shortly after that if it starts to get a bit warmer by then.

I don't know how you guys sit on all these parts for so long! It would kill me to have parts sitting around waiting for install. Haha.
