Not much. Small stuff, rock sliders, new CB, some snow wheeling, possible trailer build if funds allow. If I ever come across a screaming deal on a HP30, I would like to do what you're doing with the front.

Right on Bob… Rock sliders at the top of your list! Before you tear up your tub… like I did! (not to bad though)

Ok so I took a brief test drive just to listen for weird sounds or feel obvious vibrations. Nothing out of the ordinary. Things were nice and smooth and quiet. I didn't get going to fast but noticed no brake pitching, and didn't feel anything strange at all. So I'm pretty happy. I've got one more weld bead to run on the inside frame mount that I forgot about, and need to do some final measurements to make sure the axle is square and the pinion angle is good. Project is coming to a close though and I'm happy with my execution. Now time to plan some wheeling.

I think i'll shake down on Tuesday. And I've got to firm up my new years, Hammers plans. I haven't talked to those guys in a couple weeks to see if everything is a go.

Thanks Hendrix. I was hoping you'd stop by one day. Please chime in anytime, as I have much respect for your builds!

Snapped a few photos after tying up some loose ends tonight. I worked damn near all day on re-assembly. I have to say I fought with those stupid *** BM cam bolt inserts fitting into the Artec brackets for WAY to long, but I didn't order any weld washers, and wanted to get it assembled today so I had to work with what I had. I think brand new BM cam bolt washers would fit right in but since mine had some "wear" from my beat up stock brackets they lost their precision fit. Oh well. Nothing else fought me to bad. I didn't do LH / RH links so I had to drop them a couple times to adjust lengths, I was kind of regretting that decision but figure once i get them set I won't think about that much again.
Things definitely went pretty slow today and I'm nice and tired from crawling under the Jeep a zillion times but it was a good day of wrenching.

Overall I'm quite pleased.
