I got the buzzer switch spring today, THANK YOU SCOTT!!!!

I installed the Soft-Feel Sport Wheel and hooked up the rear marker lights; I was lucky enough to find one that works perfectly on the spare tire carrier from O'Reilly's. I did have to drill two holes, to attach it, but that's okay, it works.

I still need to finish scuffing and shooting the other four wheels....the wagon wheels that are on it have a much deeper offset, so my tires are sticking out just a bit.

Here are some pics.

It's funny how a vehicle can make you feel like you're 21 again. I had the biggest grin on my face, driving to Firestone, to get it inspected. One more hour and the High Plains Drifter will have tags.

Yes I imagine. Can't wait for that feeling. I'm constantly reminiscing about the early years with mine back in the 80's while I'm working on it. Especially if a song come on from that time frame. Certain songs always remind me of a particular time. Some of the most enjoyable of my life.

Dang, Fred, you're a young looking 40 year old. You must take of yourself as well as your Jeep.

Now, you have to do something about that John Deere green paint.

We took the High Plains Drifter to go to dinner; the family loves it! Plenty of leg room for the kids, so they're happy. Heater will cook you out, so I don't know what you guys are talking about , cause this one needs no blower update.

Can you guys tell that I'm in heaven?

One day I'll make it look as good as Keith's, but for right now, I'm enjoying the hell out of it. The plus side is that, when the time comes, getting the rust off will be easy, because it's all surface.

Phil, it was from a Dodge Ram....ugliest damn thing you ever saw. I can't tell from the pic on that Craigslist ad what's on that hood. I was toying around with putting on one of those miner hood emblems you always see on CJs.
