It feels like such a big job until you start and realize its not so bad. Today I am going to finish that mount, get the novak shifter cable in, finish painting my bumper and maybe paint my UCF skid so I can install it.

It isn't too bad... Until you snap the bolt off and have to try and drill it out in that little cramped space. Never has a mod lead to more cursing, bleeding knuckles, and thoughts of "oh crap, now I've really gone and screwed it up!". But all in all, after I got it back together, it wasn't too big a deal.

Didn't have single problem with the bolts coming out luckily. This one nut is the problem. I think it is just because the motor has raised an inch. You always have to remember to stay calm when working on a project. You brain functions better and you will find a better solution faster.

Edit: Found this http://www.jeepz.com/forum/drivetrai...-wrangler.html
Just need to take out the bolt on the block. Looks like a job for tomorrow.
Ok got the bolt out and the nut torqued down and the other bolt back in but ran into another problem. The transmission sits too low now so I can't get it into 2nd, 4th, or reverse. Gonna have to take the tranny drop out, hmm think my drive line angles will be ok? I have no DC shaft.

I my case panic was definitely a factor. Aout halfway through, it stared pouring rain, then switched to snow. IN ATLANTA! I knew I had to get it done despite my fingertips being numb because I had a 4 hr drive the very next morning. A few beers and a few minutes in the house helped me get it completed.

I have invested in a pop up canopy for days like that. It is not perfect but it helps a bunch. A few beers always does the trick for me as well.

Spent all day with Larry at Vegas 4x4 installing my new Currie/Savvy lift with 3.5" Springs and Bilsteins. In the process I found my cracked exhaust manifold. If you guys are near Vegas, get ahold of Larry. Best prices and amazing service. The did taught me how to install the lift the entire time. Very patient and incredibly knowledgeable.

Get yourself a long state running solenoid and run a remote cut off switch.
