Thanks, yeah I was thinking about something like that.

I do usually get the windows clean before removal or rolling as a general rule, but I still think something to roll up with it is a good idea

Brake line fixed same day! Back in action. And it's unbelievable how much better it drives with the new bushings, no more groans or thumps. Been a week since I could drive it farther than the shop next door.



And we submitted our final club registration tonight, so now we wait for University approval.

Finished up my rock lights, not today, but yesterday. Seems to work pretty well guess I'll find out how they hold up over time.

Still got the novak sitting at the house.. but the linkage is usable in its current form. 4wd is really about 3/4 up the first locked in position, which should be 4wd, but it locks in and has stayed in place on the couple test runs ive put it through. The normal 4wd location is now neutral and 4lo still works as it should.. so hopefully I wont have anymore troubles with it tomorrow. Just curious have you installed a novak cable? I really don't want to have to worry about it.

Just went with the waterproof led light strips on ebay that I found in another thread up here. Just bought a rocker switch, wire, and tie wraps for extra security. Took longer to figure out how to solder the wires after i cut the strips so could use the leftovers than anything. Turned out better than I hoped it would

I had to take a torch to the tub bracket. There was a bend in it that didn't need to be there.
