last night I ...
put the front coils in
drilled and tapped the lower front spring purtches for my custom free bump stops
put the rear axle under the jeep again
attached the rear lower arms to the axle
bent the rear brake line again
today i plan to...
drill the hole for my shock mounts
rear upper control arms
what will probably happen today after I get home from school and work.
look at jeep and say "i need to work on that"
instead of working on jeep get on JF and screw around for an hour
look at jeep again
go inside to check mail and JF again
get stuff ready for the swap meet and load trailer for swap meet
work on jeep for a little bit
then go inside again because it's friday night and go out.
Dropped T-case and engine skid plates, swapped trans mount, removed rear driveshaft and balancer, drained t-case, then started taking T-case apart for the SYE kit. This all probably would have been completed by tonite if Quadratech would've sent me the SYE kit I ordered instaed of putting a used driveshaft in the box. At least I can take my time to do this as the parts aren't due now till Monday. Prepped rebuilt front and TW rear driveshaft for install. Loosened rear upper control arms for the adjustable ones on order.
It's too darned nice out. I opened the Jeep all the way up again for the weekend at home.

(yesterday) Rotated the tires and installed an adjustable front track bar. Drilling the front track bar mount on the driver's side was a *****! It's roughly 13/16ths thick steel, and had to drill the existing tapered hole out to 5/8". Many thanks to mrblaine for the help with that!
