Ordered the rest of the stuff I need from Ruffstuff today. Will probably ship out tomorrow and be here before this weekend. Rear brackets came in today and the steering Friday. Will be getting the rest of the fab work done this weekend and all the bolt on the next then it will be Harlan time!!

A picture of the new rear brackets. Also on a non Jeep related side note. Got some new tires for the truck. Got a pretty good deal on them plus really needed tires especially since Im going to be towing up to Harlan.

Haha over at Southeastern Freight Lines lol but for the tires I had to barrow that money from my grandparents.. The tires on the truck were pretty much bald, dry rot all over and a nail in one... A buddy of mine had this set pretty much new and I couldn't pass it up and he couldn't wait for me to get the money.

Haha fair enough. It seems like all the good deals pop up when I'm short on cash as well. What tires are you going to be running on the jeep

I started out with factory 12 bolt Humvee rims but the back spacing was too much. Was going to be sitting just as wide I was with stock axles. Found a good deal on some recentered 12 bolts so thats what I got now. They are at 3.5" of backspacing so I'll gain a good bit of width out of this swap

Got the rest of my stuff from ruffstuff except for my steering which will be here tomorrow. Going to the junk yard in the morning to try and find a few things. Also going to drill out the track bar mounts to 5/8s for the new heims. Going to try and get the rest of the work done this weekend atleast for any fabbing and welding. Also weighed out the BBs for my tires today. Couldn't get hold of a digital scare so had to barrow some antique scales from my grandma Hey it got it done and Id say they are all ~13oz. We'll see how it works out when I get them on.
