Started out the day by making the final connections and double checking the electrical before starting the engine for the first time with the tub installed. All went well, and after connecting the front drive shaft, I actually moved the Jeep under it's own power for the first time since 2012-08-29. It was only a couple of feet, but she live again. I then installed the rear bumper, and hood before heading off to a lunch meeting. Right after lunch I had a a couple of shady characters stop by from the MIJC. But Frank and Jon are a couple of great guys, and it was a blast seeing them again since I missed the annual banquette. After we caught up on things and they got a good look at the Jeep and my other projects, it was time to pull the Jeep out and go for it's first trip around the block after the engine/transmission rebuild. WOW, it needs perhaps a little more tuning, and it was weird in front wheel drive, but she has plenty of pep, and I can even spin the tires now! For the rest of the afternoon, I proceeded to attach the hood items, and front bumper. I also started on the rear TJ fender flares and planning the front fender work. Other than the front fender work, I need to start a punch list as it's the little things that will get you.
