ok sorry bout the last post I was in a mood..lol....anyways didn't get much(anything) done and now its raining....should clear up by tomorrow tho..did git out and sling a few projectiles thru the .50cal....now that I got it pretty much zeroed in at 60yrds ill take it out to a local field and give it some walking distance...im one of those folks who cant seem to leave things alone and last season I changed scopes on two of my rifles right in the middle...it really messed up my harvest....I didn't just want to go waste lots of rounds and further spook the critters we were all attempting to put in our freezers, so I only got them close enuff but not dead on...so im starting from scratch this year and getting it right before hand and then im gonna leave it alone I swear......its 10 days from opening day of muzzleloader season and I still haven't fired off the dj I am getting worried I wont make it....there are loads of things I had wanted to accomplish before hand but as it looks im going to be doing good to get it running period....at least I have the knowledge the motor and trans are were fully functional before I disassembled it...
........the worst thing I have to deal with at the moment is, my wife gave me that look the other day...you all know the look...that one that says you've gone way over budget and are about to be single again if she even hears the word "Jeep"....yea im at that point....lol...but anyways hears whats left to be done to be drivable....
left to do
bolt up DS
flare the ends of trans lines where I cut them for a better seal and or buy new metal ones and rebend
adjust shift linkage
drill knuckles for 1ton TRE's
make drag link
modify pitman arm(no drop available)
steering stabilizer mounts(will prolly wait till after driving)
finish front shock mounts
make the stupid egr block off plate(10 minutes tops)
and some other minor crap not worthy of mentioning...
left to buy
trans fluid(3-4 qts)
gear oil(dif change)
7/8" drill bit
heater hose 10'
lights for front signals
and that I think is all for now
im actually considering donning my raingear and going out to wrench in the rain.....I am glad that all my electrical worked and came out beautifully including all the gauges in the main guage...if the two additional gauges weren't just so so ugly id prolly have used them as well, but the two 2" gauges are stolen from the big DJ's triple set...well enuff babbling for now...I needs ta gets my lazy butt off this couch and do something, anything, beside drink coffee...lol..
