Great! I do need to get rid of the rear sway bar and buy some disco's for the front. Greg pointed out some on CL, but i need to get the cash for them. If i had more flex, the trail would have been wayyy too easy. But as a tester trail, awesome. Good job Powr for pointing me there.

Looks good and looks like you won't have to turn around due to mechanical issues anymore!

Was planning on replacing the fuel lines so I can safely park in the garage, but the filler & vapor lines from BJ's were wrong, will have to put off til spring. must have some late '77 parts on my '78.

Here's a hack job on the filler/vapor hose whatever works at the time I guess!

dude i feel your pain. You should have seen the fuel system hack job that was done on my truck....It took me almost 3 years to get my fuel system working alright...and its still not 100% haha. At least it doesn't srink or leak or vent inside the cab anymore.

When are you going to be bringing it back down here?

So... What did you do this weekend? Well...

Got some leafsprings reassembled and put back on the ground along with some shocks mounted in place.



Ummmm, what else...

Oh, mounted some bedsides... Thanks for the extra hand!







Punched a hole in the firewall and this goofy thing fell thru it!



Knocked out some more jungle gym stuff over the top of the engine.



Mounted a fuse box, a resi, and cut out a crap load of extra unnecessary wires.



Some other resi stuff... Oh the humanity!!! The resi's aren't mounted the same side to side, what ever shall we do?



Oh and somewhere along the line this...



managed to turn into this. And the result was an engine that you can turn the key and it actually starts and runs again!




Tomorrow night the fun continues! Then Tuesday night I gotta prep for a trip and I'm outta town for most of next week.

So today i got up early (for me anyways) went out and cleaned up the garagge, pressure washed the floor and garza's engine hoist and stand. Anyways i pull my girls truck in to replace the wheel bearing hub assembly and change the oil. Got done she cleaned out the truck and headed to the donation spot to drop off some stuff. Im washing my hands and she calls im sitting in the middle of the street on fort apache and sunset, i turned at the light and the front tire almost fell off the truck wont move. Its seriously a mile at the most from my house. I run up there and shes sure **** sitting in the fast lane and the front tire looks like a dam prerunner from the east side of town :P. The unit bearing blew apart. I called autozone and was like wtf they told me im SOL. I call a tow truck (i tried to at least get it out of the number 1 lane and only made it 3/4 way into the number 2 lane before i had to stop) town truck shows up and was like well i hope it makes it onto the bed. He pulled it 3 feet and all the bearings rolled out onto the ground along with the cage. Get it home 55 bucks later pull it apart and head to autozone. She gave me a timkin for the same price. I told her i want to file a claim for my damage (rim, brakes, alignment, and tow) she said i have to bring in a quote and it has to be approved by HR. Im like i bought the fuker 2 hours ago now look at it. Your lucky she wasnt going down the freeway with the kid in the car.

So we will see how this goes...tbc
