You would have heard me for the most of my life say that I will never leave New England. Moving out west seems like its weighing more and more on my mind recently though...

Whats on tap for this weekend?

Everything will be done in a week or two, I hope. Perks of not working or going to school I guess.

Don't add anymore fuel to that fire! I have been strongly considering picking up a set of 33's and some wheel spacers until I can get the rims I really want.

Honestly I'm not 100% sure. Most likely work on the truck, but that depends on what parts I have on hand. I'm probably order all the gaskets and some remanded heads today and hope they get here by the weekend.

I have a set of 4 you could use until you get them or I need them back

Some pictures of my progress. It's not much, but I'm taking my time to help minimize future headaches.

I appreciate it, but we'll see. If it looks too weird after the BL I might consider jumping to 33's. If not I'll probably kill these 31's before I switch.

In other news...

Just dropped some coin on reman heads and all the goodies needed to install them on the truck. Hopefully everything gets here by the end of the week so I can get it all buttoned up over the weekend. Then the tear down on the Jeep can begin!

Me to. Luckily I'm only at $560 for heads, gaskets, and head and rocker arm bolts. So I haven't dug too deep into the Jeep fund.

The first shipment of Jeep parts showed up today. These boxes of joy are from Mr. Blaine at Black Magic brakes.

While out looking for some lube, I decided to stop and get some poser shots of the Jeep since I don't have any recent ones. Hopefully in a few weeks I can get some more shots showing off her new parts.
