Since this board has been about the slowest thing going for over a week, I'll try to shake it up around here. Who's got Cruiser projects they're currently doing, or will be doing in the next month or so. Don't be shy, everyone's got 'em, especially if you use your rig. Take some pic's, post em if you want.
Right now for me, I'm working on a rear x-member for my t-case, and an aluminum storage box for the rear. I just ordered some rear motor mounts from MAF, so won't complete the rear x-member until I have those installed. Don't have any pics, but will try to have some tomorrow or something.

This weekend I will probably put in new motor mounts(fan hits shroud under load).

In the next week or two I'm gonna have new shackle mounts and longer shackles made for the rear. At rest it will sit at the same height but it will have a better angle and more flex.

When the body shop I use can get me in they're gonna weld up the fender wells.

I have an alarm and stereo to install.

I have a manual trans radiator I'm gonna install as soon as I buy a HUGE trans fluid cooler and fan(it gets hot towing on the highway over 70mph).

I have a ton of other s*** but that's what I should get done over the next month.

Wow SHO NUFF, you almost have more than me going on!
I ended up ordering new b-housing motor mounts from MAF, so I'll have to wait until next week to do the rear x-member. It also turns out that my storage box dimensions are off, so I gotta cut it apart, remove some material then weld it all back together! YaHoo!!

Hey, we got some Jayhawks checkin in here. I think he secretly wants to be an Arizonan. I mean if you had the choice between AZ and KS, c'mon! :D

I spent my first 9 years in KS.

Great place to be from.

This upcoming weekend I will be replacing my passenger-side birf, and repacking the driver-side birf. Then I will hopefully start a disc brake conversion. If I find an axle I'll do it that way, otherwise I'll have to go with the mini conversion.
