Well, the MML is FINALLY on. What a pain in the ***.

And we broke the fan shroud. I'll melt it back together until I can get a replacement.


Took the Hemi out to get food and gas. Man that thing is fast. Now time to start BL.

What are you talking about? Body lifts are easy!

Finished at about 5. Slept 4 hours and back up. Fixed the crack with PVC Cement.

My BL was the easiest thing I've done. Took only 1.5hrs and that was at a slow pace.

BL was relatively easy. MML was a pain. The BDI lift is worth the extra

Working on the crossmember now. Just cut the exhaust off after the muffler.

It's not looking promising on getting the sliders done before gulches.

I gotta have sliders.

We're having big problems with the TC hitting the tub. Even after hammering on the tub it's still smashed together. Any advice?

Well, we have 2 options. Wait until my friend can cut/bend them, which will be after gulches, or I can get a different friend to cut them and tig 2 pieces together. It would be just as strong (he is an awesome welder), not sure how much he would charge though.

So you can't get it up high enough to clear a flat skid? Without being there and seeing it I can't really help. You can always just have a small drop in the skid. It doesn't have to be perfectly flat.

We're making it work. We redid the center bushing to allow it to sit as low as possible. The case may or may not still hit.
