In all honesty I don't know how OU is favored by 3 (or whatever it is by the time you read this).

This isn't the first OU/Texas matchup we've discussed in your build thread. We're ready to see this wrapped up. I was gonna try and talk you into bringing it to Dallas so I could see it. Sadly you aren't finished and we'll be in Tyler, TX for a 50K race anyways.

Enjoy your seats if you're going. This will be a good game as usual. (Wish one of us were a contender though...)

Because we have no defense....My 72 year old mother could make more tackles than the supposed studs we have..

Picked up 2 750 amp ANL fuse holders, a 250 amp fuse for the inverter and a 500 amp fuse for the winch, made and powder coated a bracket. The lugnut is there so you can see how big this buss is

Installed a hose over the CB antenna with shrink to protect the tail light.

Cleaned up everything on the passenger side fender well, also got all the under dash grounds done and fabbed a tunnel cover and installed it.

I just read through this whole thread and it makes me feel like crap. My 350 swap was not nearly as meticulous and perfect as this. *sigh*
