- Finish cage; X at the B-pillar, A to B bars, seat and harness mounts
- Make cage tie-ins
- Pull dash and center console
- Pull cage and finish weld the whole thing
- Raptor line the tub
- Prime and paint the cage and frame.
- Paint corners and tailgate skin while I'm painting other things
- Install everything back in the jeep; cage, dash, seats, harnesses
- Pull old gas tank
- Mount and plumb the fuel cell
- Relocate rear upper spring perches and install new coils
- Install front currie bumps and install new coils
- Install corner armor and tailgate skin
- Also want to make the windshield frame easily removable for wheeling trips so I can leave it at home.
- And finally, get a few good extinguishers and fab some quick release mounts for fire safety. I'v been reading too many stories about rig fires and my buddies truck caught fire going down the highway a few months ago and burned to the ground on the shoulder. His truck was an '03 and not a POS at all. They are not sure what caused the fire. But anyway, it made me think that it can happen to any vehicle at any time. Not just Jeeps that go offroad. I carried a small 2.5lb extinguisher before and a larger 5lb stowed in the back but I want some more quality stuff.
Hope to accomplish this by the end of March so that it's ready to wheel by April. Then I will begin collecting for the D44 (and most likely HP30) project.
