I called the dealer this past Saturday to hear if they had a tow bar for me. They didn't so I ordered one. Hoping to get a call from them tomorrow and then I'll probably play spanner boy for my brother when he fits it sometime the rest of this week.
Last night I was unloading something from the rear and forgot to lift the rear window all the way myself - the tired OEM gas lifts only lifted it till it was about level - so when I went back to get something else I skinned the top of my bald ol' head against that plastic ridge along the bottom edge once too often. Fortunately I'm on leave this week so today I finally managed to track down a place who could make up a new set of lifts for me out of some new Gabriel components.
I don't even know if it took the guy more than 15 minutes to remove the old lifts, match them up with new parts, recommend that I go for the metal joints instead of plastic, put everything together and pressurise them, and come and clip them into place. Wonderful to see how easily they lift the rear window all the way! So they're white instead of black and they have "Gabriel" printed on them, big deal. Maybe, one day when I'm bored I'll get a rattle can of matt black and spray them. For now I'm just happy they're there...
I installed a Teraflex belly up skid that has been cluttering up my garage for the last year or so. I put on a Novak shifter to go with it. The Novak install was a pain but it is working well now and seems pretty cool.

Payed for my re-gear 4.56's and a new L/S diffs $1475 for all parts + labor and then picked up two new tires will get the other two this weekend when they come in. Now I need to figure out what tire carrier I want.
Just finished running the wires for the interior lights to a switch below the dash. Now I can cut them on and off whenever I please, kinda cool driving around with front and back lighting, as well as inside. (With no cars around)
