Bought some train horns and installed them. Gonna post pics of them under there tomorrow.

Also finally got my rear output yoke in the mail and got around to installing in, shortening my driveshaft in the shop, and installing it. Idk how but it came out amazing. Actually has less vibrations than my stock one ever has. Should have some pics of that soon too.

I'm going to try to get a video of my horns tomorrow.

Well the other day we got my cj a new friend! It's a 1981 jeep j10 4x4 with an amc 360. Really awesome truck. Got it for cheap and after throwing on my old pos edelbrock carb it ran incredible. Gonna order a Holley TA soon though. Also gonna do the same team rush msd upgrade that I did in my jeep.

Here's the truck:

image-3638019318.jpg

We plan on painting it 07 jeep wrangler blue steel metallic.
Here's the custom door panels I made for it today. Gonna paint them the same color as the exterior as the jeep.

image-146051942.jpg

And here's the gauge cluster I'm gonna make for it!

image-919294371.jpg

It's definitely gonna be a fun project. We already have a 6" lift for it and a bunch of other parts. Hopefully it will be made into being my tow rig but for now it's just a fun project. Lol only bad news is we have to sell my dads yj:/
