that sucks. ill just have my dad help me


well onto some tech that i did

when i got this it had a 700r4 bolted to the fuel injected 350. but it was rusted and looked like it had been buried in the ground for some time.

well on monday i found a new to me transmission a 700r4 for $100 and i bought it and also i got a NP231c transfer case with a 700r4 adapter for $65. tonight my dad and i cleaned up the tranny and tcase. it looks million times better ill take and post up some pics tomorrow after work if i remember. hopefully i can get out of working though. we decided to go auto so we wouldnt burn through clutches and wouldnt have to tire our legs out on the clutch pedal and it was a hell of a deal. so tomorrow if i dont work my dad and i are going to be mating everything togetherand will have a mostly complete drivetrain except for driveshafts.

Score on that tranny/t-case find! Stick shift jeeps are a little more of a challenge offroad, I couldn't even imagine wheeling an auto. If I don't wheel Saturday Il come help you. I'd rather find a weekend where there's no event and we have the park to ourselves. Time will tell but in the mean time, keep it up!

Well has a great 18th birthday today!! Mom and dad said they will buy the rear air shocks!! And I have enough for the fronts! So I'm going to be ordering fox 2.0 14 or 16 inch travel shocks this week. Need some advice on whether or not to get the 14 or 16 or both 14 front 16 rear.
