I wish my friends were motivated. One is in the middle of an engine swap and his new motor has been sitting on the floor for 3 months..

Front shock mounts are extended, 12" Bilsteins are in, Currie track bar going on tonight, put the drivers side JJ in the front housing last night. Still need to do the passenger side JJ tower.

The shocks are the perfect length. I set the up for 6/6 and can JUST unseat the coil at full droop with these things. I've got some YJ front brake lines I need to install to take full advantage of the droop. Savvy brake pads may get installed and broken in tonight as well. They've been on the shelf for close to a month.

Haven't put them on yet. YJ front brake lines are 3" longer than ours. It's a very cheap way to extend the lines. I'll post pictures when I'm done. I just drilled out a broken steering box bolt (total idiot screwup on my part) and am so happy that I just want to sit down, watch football, and drink a beer (Highlife of course).

I'll probably hit up "the local spot" (Beaver) this weekend.

I've almost knocked out my "to do before winter" list. That feels good.

Thats great!

She might get a little sore you running around there with those MTRs.

I am going to check out this hot little creek run Saturday if I get a new shock.

Haha, you're full of humor tonight. But seriously, the water crossings were @ Beaver.

Nothing like a wet Beaver.

The creek run I am going to this weekend is on Private land. It also has a nice solid rock bottom with some big rocks, and a few small waterfalls. If the rain has not got it swolen it will be a great time. Supposed to be 65 Sat.



Did the T-gate bar make your top any better. I still do not have one.
