Wow! All these little things are killing my shop time.

Wiring 100% finished.

Remote Battery location 75% finished I will finish it after lunch.

Remote Battery location is done. Brakes are ready to bleed as soon as the front pads get here.

That stuff would take me way longer than 20 days.

You guys going the 14th? My other club is having our annual campout at MI that weekend. If you make it up John, I'd like to meet up to check it out. Hell you can come over to our campsite at Troys to show it off to everyone else!

I am trying to get her done for that. It's probably not doable. But, I am giving it my best shot.

Sorry, I forgot to post the pictures yesterday. I did not take very many this weekend.

Here is the hinged remote battery tray. I can remove 3 bolts and swing it down to service the battery. I will build a skid to protect it once I get the transfer case skid in place.





JK Brake hoses look like they will work nice, I just hop they are long enough.



We put the bed back on before I got any good pictures of the rear brake and hose set ups.

Here is the bed back on with the flares.

Why did you place the battery under the tub?

I love that to do list. Some items are less than an hour, some are what would take me a week. Good luck and I am very impressed with the cleanliness of that undercarriage.
