Need to do:

- properly wire in stereo
- recover and install sammy seat w/ belts
- family roll cage
- straighten/beef up tie rod

Like to do:

- TBI
- York compressor
- larger alternator & Mobi-arc install

Throw in the new baby, mini-truck projects, and saving for Rubithon and I'll be lucky to get the need-to-do items done.

With 3 of us having scraped out mud from being high centered, he surely would have made it through. Eric, how long did it take to get your rig washed. Kirk, thanks for posting more pic's. Your 1/2 cab really takes good pictures.

Don that pic above can be used as an avatar I belive.. Probably about the right size..

Clean my truck? Shoot.. It's locked up at Eric's place right now in his barn.. I guess I can go clean it later this season.. but i'm booked till after turkey day right now so it's just gonna sit and wait. Accumulate parts and rebuild..
Eric's truck needs more attention then mine! His is still just a frame!

Don, some weekend yur NOT wheel'n call me, we'll get ya an avatar.

Crap, my list just got longer... since I had the 40 rear axle apart I decided I'd start get'n ready for the spring flip. Then I remembered the FJ60 axle in the parts pile for Becca's rig..... after a quick call to Erik I talked myself into prepping and mocking up the 60 axle to go in my 40 :D

"Slippery Slip" I think was the term used when I started going bigger....crap!

:beer:
