    Thanks to the Men@Work crew, I got some new hiking boots. I also finished my cargo trailer, and loaded it to check for space.

    New 3\8 winch rope got the hook removed, and installed my Safety Thimble. Just gotta finish writing the controls so I can spool it up.
    Rear bumper & tire swing removed, and letting the first coat of bed protector cure. 2nd coat in 4 hrs, them I can start on the tire swing.

    Rear bumper had the high lift mount turned upright, a new brace to study up the tire mount, and a fresh coat of bed protector.

    Thanks,
    Inca Gold only produced in 2003. Total production is 80,000 TJ's in 2003, about 1000 Inca Gold, and only 212 of those are Rubicons.
    It's like hitting the lottery. Crazy part is that there are 4 in the Columbia\Lexington area. The probability of that is astronomical!

    I've been slowly but consistently working towards getting the Commando back on the road and then on the trail. It's very close. Over the past few weeks I've been able to finish changing the front leafs over from the narrow stock springs to custom spring packs using Toyota mini truck mains and CJ leafs to end up with the strength of 2.5" wide leafs with better flexibility. I had help with this step from my kids and from a good neighbor.


    Then the same good neighbor sent my old cheap steel wheels down the powder coating line at his work to yield a great result, especially considering the substrate.


    I had told myself for a long time that I couldn't spend money on tires for the Commando until I had all the other major items checked off the list and tires were the last thing that was keeping it off the road. Well, that's almost true now. And between a killer deal on BFGs at 4wheel Parts and my birthday a couple weeks ago - I finally bought tires: 35x12.50r15 KM2s. One of my good friends was in town this weekend from California, and we spent some time getting some nuts tightened up on the suspension and putting the tires on. Again, with help from the kids.


    As she currently sits:


    This weekend will hopefully involve changing out the clutch friction disc and flywheel, installing new front dampers, ... and a test drive.

    Drove it! Feels good to get it out and around town. I still have a lot to do, but so far it is going around town pretty well. I need to find someone to stuff a set of 4.10 gears into the axles for me.
