My friend and I traded tops and depending on whether or not he like the fastback its permanent, I got an 06' harddtop in pretty good shape. Now all I need to do is find someone who is sick of their full doors and willing to trade.

Got the locker installed, I also tested it out nice and hard to make sure it worked.

Loaded up and ready to head to Texas Off Road Ranch.



First Climb of the day.



Second climb of the day. Someone had broken going up this trail a few minutes before I tried it.



Two hard climbs. I attempted the left one.







There's also a really neat Rocky uphill, Rocky U-turn, and then a rock downhill. I've got pictures going up, but now around and down.





Unfortunately, there was nobody taking pictures when the action was going on. I'm going to get better pictures when I go back in a few months.

Got the first of my Metalcloak control arms in. Front uppers right now, they were in the worst condition.


Got my LED tail-lights and reverse lights in and installed.




Holy crap, these things put out some light.

Synergy cage ordered supposed to come in Wednesday, back half only. Gonna have to get creative for the front half, as I don't want to drill through the dash. Looking at ordering the PSC or BTF front half if the tubing will flow right.

Cage is welded in.




Gonna be ordering the BTF front cage kit and modifying it a bit to look right with the Synergy back half.

Got a new



Getting some practice in with it before the rest of the roll cage comes in.

1/4 inch steel with it on auto-set. Not bad for the 4th weld on it, I'd say. Much better than the Lincoln I was using before.



Oh, and I ship out January 28 for the Air Force.

BTF front half in. Both of the windshield tubes were short, the bottom one I was able to correct by flipping the two stiffening plates to the inside, the top one I had to weld about a 1/4 inch gap closed.


Off the Jeep, paint drying.



Moar



Back in




I think Hendrix pulls off the truck look bettter.

So, I'm thinking of putting in a 4.0 V8 from a BMW in. Not for any real reason, except for the interesting factor.
