I'll try to get you some good pics this weekend. For now I'm going to trim the snot out of the pocket flares. If I go with tube flares later I'll most likely just make them.

Hardly got to touch her this weekend. I did get to modify the front frame end track bar bracket. I did some quick geometry calculations and found that the frame end of my track bar was 1 3/4" inches too high with the steering on top of the knuckles. The modified bracket is quite possible one of the ugliest things I have ever seen, but I have no doubts it will hold up. My only concern is the leverage on it from it being so long. I may end up making some sort of support across to the opposite side frame rail, but I will most likely wait to do that until I take the time to remove the spring and shock on the side so I can cut the whole brakcet assembly off of the frame and start from scratch. The tarck bar bracket is going to be 1/2 - 3/4" from the sway bar link bracket, and I am not 100% convinced that it won't contact the axle tube under full suspension compression on that side. I will have to investiaget that futher after I get the new sway bar link brackets welded on.

Thanks Ross! Her maiden voyage will be this weekend. She's on the trailer outside of my office now just waiting for me to get off work and head to Uwharrie. They're calling for some nasty weather so it should be a good way to break her in.

I trimmed the snot out of the flares to keep the tire from ripping them off during stuff. I'll get some pictures up when I can. Hopefully I'll have some good wheeling pics when I get back!

She did great at URE! Had to winch up the first ledge on the back side of Daniel (it was slick and nasty from all of the rain, and I ddin't pick the best line). Didn't like no sway bar and 6psi of tire pressure on the off camber stuff, my butt chewed on my seat fabric too much! I'm thinking daul rate Sway Lok, not decided yet... suggestions?

Here are the few shots we got. Including the goofball poser shots (couldn't resist).

I just saw a Yellow hardtop Right hand driver TJ on a used car lot $14,999 for it. Im tempted to get it, but how hard is it to drive on the streets, being that you are sitting opposite of "norm"?

That all depends on you, it doesn't bother me at all. In fact I like it better. That seems alfully high on the price though! I got mine for $10,000 out the door and the woman that had it before me never even took the plastic film off of the carpet, it was the cleanest 50,000 mile vehicle I've ever seen...

Got my tail lights off, license plate off, gas filler neck mount off, flares off, and inner fender liners out. Then I got the holes drilled and nutserts installed (thanks Gerald!) and the corners primed and painted. Now I just need the paint to dry and I'll have Savvy corners and tail lights finally installed!
