so been hard at it on the big dj.....got brake lights wired in and working, got all the indash switches working for front and rear winches, well really just been trying to knock out multiple small things here and there getting it closer to being done...the budget has bottomed out so its now taking longer and longer to get things accomplished...hopefully here in the next week ill get it moved to a better spot(since the camper stole my fab spot) to get the axles built....if i just make a front d/s i can "drive" it to its new spot...no exhaust and fwd only but at least i wont have to push it...well thats about it for now...

thanks buddy.....the waggy should just need a few brake parts switched over from the 93wreckedJ and a new late model radiator found one local all brass $98...the job is just part time but pays a c-note+ per day 2-4 day a week...as far as the jeep budget it just got a cash infusion, so soon as the ever present rain stops ill try and get back on it...lol...on a positive note the big dj has been moved form the place beyond the pines to the driveway....knocked out a few more small items from the ever growing list of piddly s**t i left undone...and then a few luxury items like the steering column mounted 9mm holster...you know for easy access when "snakes" are a clear and present danger...that and i cant handle it being on my side when seated...one of the last few times i rode i ended up with one moccasin in the jeep and one trying to get in and nothing but a hatchet to defend my self with, but thats what happens when you decide to go out and literally ride in the flood...jeep got picked up and carried a few times but that wasnt near as scary as the snakes...i should write a book someday.."The Stupid Adventures of a Freak"...lmfao...nobody would belive it...lol...cci makes 9mm luger snake shot shells so those are also on my list of much needed items....well i guess thats all for now...im sure i could find more stuff to blab about but i wont...
